This Isn't Goodbye...

So for the three of you who still follow me here at BSMMH, you have probably already guessed that I have taken a break from the blogosphere. I should have written this post a long, long time ago, but I've been putting it off, namely because I knew it was going to be extremely difficult to write, and also because I wanted to give myself a chance to talk myself out of the decision to take a break from blogging for a while. After not being able to post anything for three months, I had to accept the fact that this break was going to have to be real.

I can't tell you how tremendously important this blog has been to me over the past three years. I started it at a very lonely time in my life, stylistically speaking. I had just finished school and entered the corporate world, where I felt like a lost beacon of color and accessories in a colorless, flavorless world of dark suits and sensible shoes (ew!). In an attempt not to lose my true self (not to mention my sanity!), I started this blog as a form of self expression.

The support I received from everyone since Day One has been overwhelming and a complete surprise. I found out quickly that I was not the only petite curvy girl in the entire world (despite what my mother has tried to tell me), and that there were so many curvy petites out there who struggled with fashion trends clearly created for the billowy tall girl. I found others like me who hated the constraints of "professional attire" in corporate America and joined me in trying to push the envelope a little bit every day, whether it be with a piece of funky jewelry or bright belt (it's the little things, guys). I felt like I was part of a community, and that community warmed this girl's heart more than a chocolate brownie baked into a creme brulee baked into a cronut. So from the bottom of my heart, guys, I want to say thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, for all the support.

Thanks to you all, I've grown so much since my first post...in self confidence, in self awareness, and, frankly, in my style (some of my first posts make me cringe!). And while I've decided to take a break from the blogging, I don't want to say goodbye because you can still follow me on Twitter and Instagram, where I will continue to post outfits and accessories and other things that are important to me (read: my dog and food). I'm also putting together an Ebay shop of some never-worn and lightly worn goodies from my closet, so make sure to follow me on Twitter for details on that! Of course, you can also feel free to email me at bsmmhblog@gmail.com if you ever want to chat.

So, for now, friends, I'll say farewell (not goodbye) and that I wish you all best. Continue to look good and feel good...and I'll see you around the Internets!
