About my blogging break

IMG_8672Four months…WOW! Yes, I’ve been MIA for a long time now but the truth is I just wasn’t inclined to blog. Don’t get me wrong, I still love it and I did miss it but I just wasn’t inspired (I guess that’s what they call bloggers block, huh?).

However, it is such a hard time to put together a wish list as it’s the perfect time to change your wardrobe and get it ready for spring. I’m loving so many items at the moment it’s hard to control myself – good thing my boyfriend gives me the evil look when I talk about something totally unnecessary I want to buy (you keep me sane babe!).
