‘I haven’t failed, because you only fail when you stop trying, and I will never stop.

Where to begin...

As a party & craft blogger, I always try to promote positivity. To encourage you, my readers, to live more creatively, to celebrate life and bring you a little joy through my posts as this is my love and passion. However I am human, and sometimes there are things in our lives that happens to us that makes us worn-out and tired. I am writing this to you because I want to be real and for you to get to know me as a person not just a blog.

I am a pretty hard working gal #girlboss but as I grow older I realise I am constantly putting more and more pressure on myself with my work and my ideas of success. My idea of success is to find balanced happiness in all areas of my life - in my career, family and relationships and to reach my personal goals.

I guess what I am trying to say is, I have been mentally exhausted for a while now with trying to build a new business, whilst juggling freelance work, part-time work, blogging, family life and my relationship and friendships. As you can imagine things start to get overwhelming. 
I have so many ideas for DIY blog posts and videos all contained in my creative notebook and I’ve even shot some of them ready for editing. Believe me, I have been itching to finish them off, ready to post and share on the blog but the truth of the matter is I just haven’t had the time. Unfortunately blogging simply doesn’t pay the bills (for me anyway). I much rather post less frequently but have well executed content than to throw anything on the blog just because I need content. I hope you understand, I mean if I’m gonna to do something I want to do it well. 

So that’s the story of my lack of post the past two weeks. But hey, It’s all going to be okay! I just need a little time for myself, to take a break in some areas of my work and to concentrate on one thing instead. To stop putting so much pressure on myself in feeling like I have to do everything otherwise I have failed. I haven’t failed, because you only fail when you stop trying, and I will never stop. It’s just time for a little blogging vacay.

I also want to say a little thank you. Thank you for stopping by and reading my blog, and thank you for those who have commented in my posts - it means the world to me. This blog is my hobby and I absolutely love that I can share my ideas and to spread a little joy on here, so thank you for all your support. I will still be posting on Instagram, as I am an addict, so if you want you can follow me there :).

This is not a goodbye, just a see you later!

  1. I can completely relate to this post Tiffany, juggling freelance work, day job, friends and family and blogging can be exhausting! I have noticed I've taken a step back from blogging but also try and put less pressure on myself. I set myself this tight deadlines, when I should learn to be more relaxed.

    Don't worry about taking a step back from it all, you have a lot of talent and I look forward to seeing you excel and be amazing!!

    1. Thank you so much Hanh! Life still seems to be getting busier and busier day by day which I love but means I don’t have time to blog anymore. I hope I will be back soon once things settle! Yes!Less pressure and finding time to rest is what I am learning to do.
      Have to catch up on your post soon! Hope you are well lovey! x
