back to regular programming


i know i have been technically MIA for the past 2 weeks. i've been doing blog posts but they were mainly on the launching of my shop's second collection, Furious Rose and nothing else. i have also been way backlogged in replying to comments and visiting other blogs. not only have i been busy with our wholesale business and managing multiple jobs, i honestly have been contemplating as to whether i should continue blogging or not. i have been spending 85% of my time at home these days so there are no outfits to post. i do go out on weekends and dress up but i no longer possess the motivation to take photos of my outfits. i think self-confidence is directly proportional to style blogging. i might just be in a crazy rush these days that i hardly even have time to think about myself. i might go on a blogging hiatus, i might not. we'll see in a couple of days. 


okay, okay so i got a bit dramatic again with what i attempted to post yesterday. honestly, it really is difficult for me to post new outfits. i'm feeling so behind from every one in the style blogosphere. but i have to remember that i started doing this because i love fashion. whether or not i blog regularly, i hope you, my readers, will still stick around.

it is frustrating, when there are so many other related things I'd like to do. i want to learn more about deconstruction and portion play, maybe take classes from the many online fashion merchandising colleges. i need to be continually learning, but today's fast-paced world has made people busier and less willing to commit their time to a traditional classroom degree program. here in the Philippines, most specifically, opportunities are a bit limited. online education might just be the great answer to finally fulfilling dreams. i'll definitely look into this further.

and oooh, about the giveaway --- I'M EXTENDING it until July 20, 2011. i feel i haven't given more information about and didn't give others a chance to join it. please do tell your friends. it is very easy to join. there are a LOT of options to join. *wink*

I've been MIA too, so you're not alone! It's hard to take the time for posts when so much is going on :P

I always look for your posts, so I'll still read even if you post less!

i've missed visiting your blog so so bad! Been MIA too from the blogging scene for what seemed like an eternity. Am pretty sure you'd get your blogging mojo back. Have a great day!

Don't worry, I've been basically (as you put it) MIA for a while too, so I understand.

I loved the outfit, beanie, that would definately work right now because my ears are so cold! (and my nose).

I wouldn't mind a post about your shop, I find it interesting ;)
