sunday portrait week 65



001. Give me a bit of break if I'm not posting much right now. I'm not quitting blogging or whatever, I'm just busy with other stuff and have so much university work to be getting on with. Like most people know, I'm in my last year of university so its really my main focus at the moment. Thing is its not the summer anymore, I don't have loads of free time either, plus my job is different from what it was last year and I get home much later. Excuses, Excuses. But its the truth. I really don't like being asked when my next post will be because I don't know when it will be and its not my fault. I do want to blog, I just dont have time.You all know that there are so many amazing blogs out there, and I trust they can tide you over until I'm back to my usual form! So yeah, please just bare with me till things aren't so crazy!
 
002. Ring update, all rings that have been ordered so far (turquoise ones!) have either been sent or being sent tomorrow. Brilliant news that the Cross rings are due tomorrow and I hope to get them out by the end of the week! Have tons of new styles coming in this week although I doubt that I'll be updating the shop now till after my deadlines!

Talk soon (:

  43. Everybody deserves a break from blogging, darling. It's very time consuming! Put your mind and efforts into school, I say. We'll all catch up with you when you're out :) Hope all is well!

  57. Lily, I'm also in my final year of Uni. and totally understand the feeling. I almost wish all my fav. bloggers would post less (only right now!) so that I spend more time on Uni work and less time on the interwebz! Good luck, and you're almost done!

    ReplyDelete

  60. It's almost a comfort to hear that a successful blogger like yourself struggles with getting posts in among all her other responsibilities. As a new blogger (and a very busy PhD student), I get frustrated when I feel like I have no time to post and hearing this from you gives me confidence to keep going. I just have to remind myself not to stress and just post when I can.

    ReplyDelete
  61. here here! I know exactly how you feel. Right now I feel overwhelming amount of guilt by not doing uni work and actually spending abit of time to catch up with what has been going on, on my fav blogs. I am in my last year of uni too, and can understand your struggle to blog... I have been using my blog as a research journal as part of my uni project, which is great as then I can blog however it is slowly taking over my original format. Love how you have stuck to your true nature though. good luck with your studies Z x
