Being part German, efficiency is just genetic. That paired with my serious stubborn trait - definitely inherited from my darling mum - means that I'm kinda sorta kicking myself for writing this. But y'know what, sometimes you have to listen to your body and acknowledge that well, hey, I deserve a break

I started blogging as a hobby about 3 months ago and hand on heart, I absolutely adore it. In that time, I've published 50 blog posts and what seems like thousands of Instagram posts. Both have become such a creative outlet and have given me the opportunity to interact with some gorgeous fellow bloggers and a chance to do some incredible things.

All of that in just 90ish days. I can't even believe it. It seems as though I've been doing this whole blog malarkey for years and years. That's the thing about blogging, it's so easy to get caught up in it and get carried away. But, I do have a full time job, a family and a social life. Although my friends would argue (ha), I do have a real life outside of blogging and juggling it all sometimes gets a bit much. The pressure and demand is real. 

I've been thinking about what to write for today's post for a while now; I've written several drafts on different topics and have got flustered and irritable about it but then I realised... what am I stressing for? 

 The conclusion I came to is that I want to write pieces that you all love, that you feel are genuine and that I feel proud of. Sometimes posts like that take some time to create and I don't wanna push out shoddy, half-hearted work just for the sake of it. 

So yes, today I'm giving myself a day off. HALLELUJAH! 

Fear not, I'll be back in full force on Monday morning with my usual type of blog post. I hope you all understand & thank you, as always, for your love and support. YOU'RE THE BEST. 

P.S. Don't forget it's okay for you to take a day off too...
