Long time, no see! :) I wanted to pop in real quick to say hi and that I miss you all so much! As I'm sure most of you have noticed, I took a break from blogging at the end of July. I was in a difficult place in my life and was making mistake after mistake trying to stay caught up with everyone else in this little blog community. Deciding to walk away from my blog was the best decision I ever made, as it allowed me to see just how clouded my judgement and priorities had become. I want to apologize to everyone for the drama that went down last year. I was so focused on trying to be the perfect ideal blogger with a pretty life and cute outfits and a successful handmade shop that I ended up making a million mistakes to get there. Bad move on my part, and I've learned from it and have moved on. I hope you all can forgive me and that we can start fresh.
Hi, my name is Mandy. Nice to meet you. :)
This post isn't about me coming back to blogging though. Who knows, maybe I'll start blogging again in the future. I miss it from time to time, but I'd want to do it on my terms next time instead of trying to live up to everyone else's ideals. The main reason of this post is just to catch up with y'all and let you know where you can find me now if you're wanting to stay in touch. I had a lot of readers send me very sweet emails about my blog that I felt too raw to respond to at the time, so I'm hoping those of you will see this. I'm over on Twitter and Instagram again, and I also have a Tumblr now (why did I not sign up for Tumblr before?! It's so addicting!). Also, I'm really freaking excited to share that I finally started a Youtube channel! Remember how many times I mentioned wanting to start one? Haha. :) Well, I finally did! I'll be sharing fashion, beauty, and style-related videos, as well as fun book reviews and video game stuff. Pretty much whatever is going on in my life, or whatever sounds fun!
Thank you so much to those of you who have stuck by me and been my friend even when times were tough. I appreciate you all so much. xo! Mandy
