The Future

The Future

posted on: 1.27.2016

Well hello there! Long time no see! So, I took a rather unexpected months-long hiatus. Under typical circumstances, I would apologize for my absence, but you know what? I'm glad I took the break I took. I needed space from my blog to kind of figure out what I wanted to do with my life, even though that sounds incredibly dramatic.

So, it is time to drop some truth bombs. I'm going to be incredibly honest here- the past few months have been absolutely wonderful. I didn't have to stress about what I was going to post about, deadlines, and how to stage the perfect Instagram photo. It was freeing. I got to binge watch Netflix shows (my latest obsession has been Spanish dramas, who else is getting in on the Spaniard answer to Downton Abbey?!). I was able to spend more time with my friends. I was able to rest. I would come home from work and not have anything to worry about. I'm telling you, it was totally freeing!

I've been blogging for over five years now. Five years of being all about beauty all the time. I was 18 years old when I started blogging. 18 year old Brianna and 23 year old Brianna are two entirely different people. As one might expect, blogging constantly about beauty grew old to me. I kept with it because that's what people expected from me. I mean, I am a makeup artist so you would think that talking about makeup is all I want to do. But it's not! The beauty industry as a whole has grown to be grating to me. Too superficial. I still love it, yes, and I still love making people feel like the best version of themselves. But it's no longer consuming my entire life, and I couldn't be happier about that.

So what is it exactly that I am trying to say here? Well, I ask that you all continue growing with me. Like I mentioned before, this blog has been a major part of my life for the past five years. I feel as if it would be irresponsible to completely quit. Although trust me, I spent a solid month there getting ready to delete all of my hard work from the past five years. I mean, it would have been so easy to do! But I'm not ready to give up yet. I'm ready to try something new.

I want to explore more topics that are of interest to me. Yes, beauty will be at the core because even I can't completely quit the beauty industry, but my interests have grown into so much more. Travel has become a major part of my life, so I want to talk more about my travels. I want to write more humorous pieces that aren't as informational as they are relatable. And most of all, I just want to feel inspired again.

Ultimately, the purpose of this post is to announce that I'm not finished with what I started five years ago. I'm ready to continue showing you all what I got. But I'm going to start doing things on my terms. I'm going to be more lax about it. Not going to focus on cranking out a new post every day for page views or to impress brands. I'm going to put myself first, and the blog second. And you know what? I've got a good feeling about this.

xoxo, Brianna
