First of all I must thank all my followers and readers for your kind comments and spectacular advice. It was your advice that helped me make a decision. I've always loved blogging and the community that has been formed around the blogosphere but my blog started to feel too impersonal and restrictive. One of my readers commented that I shouldn't feel pigeon holed into one area and she was certainly right. I originally thought I'd be on a hiatus lasting a month or more but I discovered that once the decision was made and the pressure was off that I really wanted to blog.
So with all this in mind let me officially welcome you to my totally renamed and rebranded blog All These Pretty Things! This blog will cover all the things I love - Japan, Kawaii Culture, Baking & Confectionary Making, Craft, Beauty & Fashion. The design has been revamped too and is now less generic and a true reflection of my interests and personality. I hope you'll all stick with me and enjoy the blog, it will be drastically different to how it was before especially as fashion will only be a minor part of the blog but I'm entirely happy with my decision. I will be doing my first full post tomorrow and it's perfect for those of you like me that have a sweet tooth!
I'm excited to see what you all think of the new direction!
