Life | Take a Break

It's always nice to take a moment, stop and take a breath. No matter how long that breath you take it can be the most cleansing thing, and also the most inspirational. This is something I really haven't been able to do lately, which is why I've been a bit MIA.

I don't feel I need to make excuses, or justify myself, but I do want to explain and ultimately reintroduce myself and Topaz & May. The past year has been somewhat of a whirlwind. Last November I started a new job and it's kept me pretty busy, especially in the past few months. I'm not complaining, I like what I do and I'd much rather be busy than bored. But as I'm in marketing it means that when I get home the last thing I generally want to do is jump back onto a laptop and write more content. Secondly, I got married in September. So the months leading up to that were pretty hectic out of work hours, and again it meant a lot of the time on the laptop sorting and organising.

I felt like I just couldn't go near the laptop unless I really needed to, which meant Topaz and May just had to take a step back. Now don't get me wrong, I love my little bit of online space and I always have. It's not the bigger, it's not the most popular, but it's mine. And I can't tell you just how much I've really missed it. 

I started my blog over 4 years ago because I was bored, and loved to write. I wanted a hobby and someone suggesting blogging. I couldn't thank them enough. I've always main written about beauty, I love up and putting together looks, and occassionally I've expanded out to fashion, life and a little bit of food. I've even gone into a little bit of Youtube - which I absolutely loved. Now I've had time to take a step back I feel like I know the kind of content I want to create, and I know the topics I want to cover. So I'm ready to start again. With a refreshed T&M, and a wedding behind me, I feel inspired and ready to face a new chapter. But will you guys be facing it with me? I hope so.

I feel like this has shown me how important it is to break sometimes - no word of a lie as I write this I'm currently curled up on my sofa sick from work because I don't give myself enough breaks. Your body needs you to stop every now and then and just breath, and so does your mind. So whatever it is that helps you do that, stick at it and great things will come out of this.
