Hello you, yes you who still read my blog or you who just happen to stop by. I haven’t been active for a month now and I know it’s bad but I think I really needed this little break. I was busy with work, I travelled a little around Europe, I studied for upcoming school applications and I went to few concerts. I first thought that I had lost my interest for this blog in general because no matter how busy I was I always managed to make time to write. It took me few weeks to realise what really was holding me back and I am so glad that it hit me.
I was so busy that I didn’t have time to be active and read other bloggers posts which made me think that ‘if I am not active no one will return the favour’. It drove me to a circle where I kept telling myself that I can’t post anything before I have read all the blog posts from others and been ‘active’ in wordpress. Blogging had became more of a thing that I had to do than just a hobby that I loved. It was all just because of the stress over stats.
I took some time to clear my head which is why I was gone for so long. I kept taking pictures and coming up with new idea for blog posts but I just couldn’t write. Now that I have reminded myself that I am not doing this to get comments, likes or activity in general I think I am ready to come back. I am doing this for myself and because I love it. I love fashion and trends, food, beauty and travelling and this is my perfect escape from reality. It’s great if someone actually enjoys reading my outcome but most importantly I want to be happy with it. And that’s what I will keep in mind now.
Now to make sure this blog post isn’t just full of ramblings, lets take a moment to admire my delicious breakfast. Me and my friend wanted to go have a good but aesthetic breakfast together. And Helsinki is full of pretty places where you can get good food so we decided to go to one of our favourite spots, Paulig Kulma. Definitely recommend that place, it’s full of vegan and gluten free snacks, and they make such a good coffees. My favourite is their raw hot chocolate. Their breakfast included a croissant with some jam, one drink from their list and two dishes from the breakfast menu. I chose mango overnight oats and matcha pancakes with some strawberries and syrup. It was delicious!
After the upcoming summer my blog will turn two and it’s safe to say that I am not going anywhere, this is only the beginning. And besides everyone has these moments when they doubt everything. Thank you for reading and understanding, see you in my next blog post (which goes up tomorrow)!
