Hey guys, today I decided to make a post I really didn't want to make. I need a break from this blog...a hiatus, a break, whatever you want to call it. The beauty blogging community only gets more bland, boring, and full of rules as time goes on. 'Your blog has to look like this', and 'you need this many followers', and you have to do this and that, and it never used to be like that. It used to be free and happy, and wasn't full of judgement and competition. I really need a break from all of it, the community just gets more vain and cruel as time goes on. That's not to say that all beauty bloggers are cruel, they definetly aren't - I've met amazing people. I want to thank all of who have supported my little blog for the past two and a half years, your comments, emails, and follows really did (and do) mean the world to me. Lately, I've noticed a huge lack of reader interest. Not as many comments or views, and I've had the same amount of followers for a good three weeks - not gaining even one. I don't know how this blog has become so stagnant and sad, but it has. It lacks the positivity and energy it once had. Lately I've had to force myself to sit down and write a post -and when I do, I'm never satisfied with it. And I haven't bought a single makeup product since the begining of April - it's just not where my heart is any more. That's not to say that I won't be back, it's just that as time passes, the 'beauty world' no longer fits me. I'm not the same person I was when I made this blog, I feel myself changing more and more each day. I will be back, even if posts are fewer. I do love the few of you who have stuck behind me and my blog, and I really do think I'll be back. Thank you guys again.
