But of late, I’ve felt like I’ve had too much on my plate, personally and professionally – and my creativity has been spread really thin.
For the first time though, I didn’t feel guilty for not posting content or pressured to keep up with social media or the fear I would be forgotten if I didn’t post for a few days. It may sound silly but it dawned on me, I created this blog for one reason alone – to explore my creativity and to produce content that was original and different. All those of you who stop by every week have hopefully seen my love for the business of fashion come through. And I think you and I deserve to see the best of me – not just content for the sake of creating something new.
The last few weeks have been that creative interlude – where I feel like I’ve allowed myself to be completely burnt out and then take the time to slowly come back to life. I got back from Istanbul (which was a dream I never wanted to wake from) and then dived head first into a crazy few weeks at work. Getting home and just keeping up with my daily tasks was seeming like a chore so I just could not get myself in front of a laptop to write something new.
I slept for 10 hours straight last night and all those things they say about sleep are true – I feel like a brand new person. I also watched The Intern yesterday and can’t recommend the movie enough – it was the best Nancy Meyers movie I’ve ever seen. Maybe its the fact that I saw so many similarities that the pressures of living in a big city produce, or the desire we have to push ourselves to our breaking points, or just the intense moments of self doubt and the questioning of our existence, it was a movie that was true.
I’m back in action ladies and gents and cannot wait to dive into fall with you!
