Hey, everyone!!! I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve posted on here, even though it’s only been about five days. I wanted to pop on here today, not only to share my outfit, but to give you all a quick update for the coming month of June!
In June, I wanted to let y’all know that I do not plan on posting very much on my blog, if at all. I do have a few blog posts planned that I might try to post in June, but I am also considering saving them for July. I haven’t decided yet. The reason for this is that I am leaving for a three-week trip to Medellín, Colombia in June with Juan and his family. My boyfriend and his family are from Colombia, and although Juan and I have been together for over four years, this is my first time ever visiting the country where he was born! It is also my first trip out of the U.S. ever!!! I am very very very excited!!! A little nervous too, but mostly excited! We won’t be getting back to the states until early July, and three weeks is quite a long trip. Because it is my first trip outside of the states, a trip where I get to enjoy the culture that my boyfriend was raised in, as well as a trip where I get to spend so much quality time with his family, the blog is not really something that I want to be focusing on during that time. I really don’t want to have to stress about finding shooting locations, or taking time of out of everyone’s day for me to take blog photos, and things like that. Also, there is no way that I can afford to purchase three weeks worth of new clothing to post.
So again, I may try to post at least a few times before I leave for the trip, but my time before we leave is going to be very jam-packed as well, so that is why I still haven’t decided. I pretty much work non-stop during the beginning of June (literally everyday), before I head to Charlotte for my little brother’s high school graduation, where there will be a ton of family in town for me to spend time with as well, which is another reason for me to put blogging on the back-burner in June. I’m not even sure if I will have time to get blog photos taken (especially with all of the rain we’ve been having), let alone post them.
To be honest, I am really looking forward to this break! I love my blog so much, but the past couple months it has been stressful for me, not necessarily because of the work it requires, but for other reasons. The social media that goes into running a style blog can be a stressful and discouraging thing, and I think the planning and the focus on followers that goes into it is what I am most looking forward to taking a break from!
But speaking of social media, I will definitely be posting some outfit pictures from my trip on my Instagram! I also plan on posting a lot on my stories as well! I may not be posting as frequently on Instagram as I normally do, but I definitely won’t be completely inactive haha! If you want to follow along on my Colombian adventure, be sure to follow me on Instagram (or on Facebook if you don’t have Instagram)!!!
I hope that this post wasn’t too rambly, and that all of you amazing and kind people can understand where I am coming from with the much-needed break! Again, I will not be falling off the face of the earth haha, as I do plan on still posting on my Instagram (perhaps just not as frequently). I just don’t plan on posting on my blog for the month of June. But come July, I will be back in full force, and with a recap of my trip as well!!!
Thank you all so much for supporting me, and for following along with me! Maybe this break is just what I need to get my creative juices flowing again!
As they say in Colombia… ¡Chao!
