Great news, i’m still breathing.

It’s no secret: I took a digital detox for basically the first half of the year. No social media, no blogpost, no nothing. All for the sake of my brand, and my readers too. Let me explain…

I asked myself this question: Why do readers come to my website? What do I want for them? What’s the vision? 

Buncha cut-throat questions, yeah? That mind-boggling question was followed by a realization: my motives. I realized my motives.

The past four months taught me a heck-load about this thing called life and what blogging really means to me: far beyond the glamorous perks most bloggers acquire: ex. jetset traveling // flaunting designer clothes most people can’t afford.

Throughout the process, challenges were stronger than ever, by my lifestyle was elevating in ways I cannot explain. 
Not only was the blog strengthened foundation-ally, but my life as well. A lifestyle isn’t meant to be thrown around like confetti. It’s rather something sacred. Something to be proud of, lived in and out of public. Something unique and honest and consistent. I learned about my inconsistencies and the not-so-glamorous side of life. 
Thanks to my faithful and loyal readers for keeping up with me. Trust me, not blogging was like taking a part of my life away. My heart was torn. 
Enough of this sad rant, I will see you guys later!
