Hi guys! Sorry if I’ve been MIA on my blog– it was just so hard for me to juggle work, work trips, vlogging, and posting on my social media platforms all at the same time. I don’t love my blog the least, I guess I was just a bit lost last month and didn’t want to write about anything I feel like you guys wouldn’t want to read (does that make sense?). People say it’s because I’m about to reach 30 (turning 29 in two months) or the reason can be something deeper but I was just thinking of you guys, my readers / followers. Sometimes I wonder if you guys still feel inspired whenever I post something online, or if I make you guys laugh when I post entertaining videos, or if you really value my opinion whenever I do product reviews. This feeling triggered when I opened my Instagram one day and my feed was just all picture-perfect travel photos. Nothing wrong about it, I myself am guilty of wanting to take photos when I’m traveling; but as a blogger who takes pictures for a living, I know the hard work behind these beautiful images and it made me wonder if people are doing it because they love doing it or do people do it just to impress other people? It also made me think– do I travel for pleasure or for content? Since most of my trips are mostly for work, it’s inevitable for me not to take photos because I have deadlines to reach. And I think I just reached a point where I just needed a break from social media. I needed a trip where I can just freely leave my camera and just explore/ unwind the whole day. My recent trips were all like that– more chill, more relaxed. And when I do take photos for me to post on Instagram, it’s always in the moment. I didn’t go out of my way just to get that “instagrammable” shot– and I feel so much better now. There’s always a story behind the picture and I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but my posts are more candid now, and I like it. It’s my 8th year of blogging now and the landscape is constantly changing and ayoko lang magpakain sa systema na kailangan lahat perfect online. I didn’t start blogging because I wanted people to see that I have a perfect life; I started blogging because I wanted to share my love for fashion and inspire you guys in the littlest way I can. Social media can be quite toxic, don’t let it get to you. I guess I just needed a break for a few weeks to reflect on myself and after 2-3 trips where I didn’t even bother taking out my camera, I feel recharged. And to those who constantly message me when I”ll be uploading a blog post next, thank you for waiting. I’m back!
