GoodBye's Are Always Hard...

Friday, 19 December 2014

Happy Friday Lovelies!

I've always found goodbye's difficult, but this one in particular is going to be extremely hard. Today is my last intotheblonde post.

I have such mixed feelings about saying goodbye to my blog - I've been planning it for a while, it feels the right time for me to move onto other things I want to do. As well as that, I no longer have the time to dedicate to writing a blog & all that comes with it as I have in the past, due to so many things going on in my life, the expansion of my property portfolio being one of them.

On the one hand I feel extremely proud of what my little hobby has achieved - never in my wildest dreams when starting out, did I think I would be on the shortlist for a Cosmo Blog Award, or collaborating with brands such as Harrods, Lancome, Harvey Nichols & GHD, to name a few.

Speaking of collaborations, I would like to say a special thank you to Sunglasses Shop who have supported me throughout the duration of my blog. They've been such a fab brand to work with & I will definitely continue to buy my sunglasses via their site.

On the other hand, I feel so sad to let my little baby go & am sitting writing this post with tears rolling down my face, Missy my loyal companion sitting at my feet, a cappucino in hand & Radio 1 blaring in the background, which is pretty standard for me while writing blog posts (except for the blubbing!!).

I'd like to thank my husband Ian, who has relentlessly taken my outfit photos over the last 4 years (often under protest!!) - I couldn't have done it without you!

And finally, I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart who has read & followed intotheblonde - I have enjoyed reading all of your lovely comments & this blog couldn't have grown as it did without your love & support, thank you so much.

Of course I'll still be following my favourite blogs - that's the great thing about blogging, it provides so much inspiration & I've always been one who enjoys reading other blogs as much as writing one myself.
My compromise is that I shall be continuing with my instagram/twitter accounts (@intotheblonde) so feel free to follow along!

I want to finish with one of my favourite quotes that as a lover of fashion, shopping & all things Chanel has always had a place in my heart...

"Dress shabbily and they remember the dress.
Dress impeccably and they remember the woman" - Coco Chanel

Hugs Adele

oh Adele! I'm really sad to hear me you were like a friend, even though we never met..I've been following your blog for a long time now, and everymorning or every 2 days I visit your blog, it's part of my "blogging life" so I'm a bit sad! And also when you go on holiday it's like I'm travelling with you ahah

But I understand too.
Of course I will follow you on instagram and twitter!

Ahh that's a shame Adele, I just spotted your post on Instagram. I know they take up so much time though, especially when you are working but I've loved seeing your outfits and hols. On a funny note I'm glad you didn't stop writing before you posted a picture of your Laduree key ring! It went straight onto my Christmas wish list with big hints to my hubbie :-) Best wishes for the future and I'll enjoy following more on Insta xxx

Valeria said...

Best wishes for your future, for next Christmas and for a fabulous 2015!!!!!!!! Love from Rome, Valeria
