Blog? What are this?
So I took a break from blogging. Oh sure, I thought about stuff I might blog about, but it didn’t really happen. I didn’t take a break on purpose. That just kinda happened by itself. I just wasn’t feeling it, I guess? I am not going to get in to the nitty gritty of what/why etc. I will just say this — I needed a break! It was deeply personal, and the details I choose to keep between friends.
I took a seasonal job at Bath & Body Works. Working at Bath & Body Works was exhausting at times, but it was also really fun. November in general tends to be a tough month for me, historically, I don’t even know why just…November is a “shit happens” month. December is omgchristmas and January is when trade show season starts. My game plan once I decided that yes, I really am on a break, was to come back this month for the trade show season and ease back in to things.
But then I missed IMATS this year for the first time in like 4 or 5 years. Bummer. I was totally going to go, but I got Martian Death Cold from Mr. Boyfriend and was way too sick to have enjoyed myself. Still a little bitter, because there were lots of people I wanted to see there. However, it’s probably a very good thing I stayed home rather than giving my fellow blogging colleagues my germs. :) “Hi, nice to finally meet you… *sneeze/hack/sniffle*” just isn’t the best impression to make on a new friend.
BUT! Never fear! ISSE Long Beach is here! And by here, I mean practically literally. Long Beach is basically my back yard, and ISSE is this coming weekend. So I will be going to that this weekend. When you’ve been out of the beauty realm for a couple months, a trade show is a superb way to plunge back in.
So yes, I’m back. Missed you.
