               Hello everyone! As you can tell its been a very long time since I last posted on Lifes Little Things. Its been almost 4 months when my blogging break was only supposed to be 2.

Over the past 4 months I've been thinking about blogging and decided if I wanted to continue on. I've just lost the passion I had for blogging. I haven't even been at it for that long and I already lost the love for it, that showed me that its not something I'm truly passionate about. I just passed my one year on July 7.

I did love blogging at the beginning and thought I would keep for years but it didn't happen like that. I decided to quit blogging at the end of June/ beginning of July but put off writing this post because I wanted to be completely sure. Now here I am, sitting, at one in the morning writing this post completely sure about my decision.

As I said in my blogging break post I was lacking in posting and didnt feel like working on my blog and that feeling only worsened as time went on which is opposite of what I thought would happen. I thought I miss blogging and come back after a month.

I am not deleting my blog or any of my posts because even though I am not going to continue posting content I still want people to enjoy my other posts. I may be back at blogging in the far future but as of now I am not.

Well thats it everyone, my last post.

for the last time.

This is definitely going to be an odd post and the last one you will see from for a month or two. As you could probably tell I haven't been posting for days at a time and the posts I have been posting have been lacking. I feel like I lost my passion and drive for blogging right now. I just feel like I have no time to blog, been in writers block for months and in need of a break.

I love blogging but recently its been anything but fun and feels forced. In my last couple posts I tried hard to tell myself I'll get over it in a couple days and just threw together some posts that I wasn't proud of. So that brings me to the whole topic of this post, I am going to be taking a break from blogging in April and maybe May. I want to be back at blogging before summertime so don't worry. 

I will still check my email every couple weeks and check my twitter every couple days but I am going to try and stay away from blogging as much as I can. And as for the 2014 Blogger Challenge, I will most likely skip all the topics for the next 2 months. If I really want to do a topic then I will post it up in the month I come back to blogging!

This was a hard decision but a needed choice, don't take this as a goodbye but a see you later when I have my passion and drive for blogging back. Until May or June, xoxo Sophie!

Welcome back for the second post of the day! Woo! Exciting stuff right? Today I am going to write about a product I have been lusting after for while now and finally took the plunge and bought it. I am making it out to seem really expensive when its only $16, well I guess its pretty expensive for a lip balm!

I looked into this because I wanted a dark lip color but was sheer and lightweight and by reading reviews this seemed perfect so I went to sephora a bought it!

The formulas shiny but lip gloss shiny which I really love about it. Its lightweight and moisturizing. Definitely not as hydrating as aquafor or things like that but pretty good. It doesn't last very long but its so effortless to put on that it really doesn't matter.

This particular shade gives you a light wash of red almost like you just ate a red Popsicle. It gives life to our face without looking like you put on any lip product. Its very natural looking like your lips are just that rosy.

The only bad thing is that its a pot which isn't very handy for on the go use and very unhygienic but I'm pretty sure these come in squeeze tubes. Don't quote me!

Its perfect for an everyday pop of color or for the people that are scared of red lipsticks. I would really recommend you looking into them, they even have other shades like orangy, pink, clear and lighter reds.

You can buy them here. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.


March seemed to pass before I could even blink. I've tried sitting down and blogging multiple times but as per usual life got in the way. I did blog more in March than February but I felt lacking this month for some reason. Even though its only been a week since my last post it felt like a month. I figured I'd kick off April with a new schedule and 2 posts for today.

My previous schedule was Tuesday, Friday and Sunday which I kept up with really well until December. I tried to go back to it in January but failed miserably so I thought "Why not change it up?" I will now post on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays with an occasional random fourth day. This is going to be very loose, I may blog everyday some weeks or only once. It makes it more enjoyable :)

I really like blogging as it connects you with people who share the same interests so I am not going to stop anytime soon but I really just have to give myself more time to write how I want to to and to take part in twitter chats, which I have barely done in March! 

I am just going to take April first as a new chapter and get on that blogging grind with scheduling posts, tweeting. chats, picture taking and editing and planning. I also need to figure out how to fix PicMonkey as its been wonky on me lately. 

Get ready for loads of new content on Lifes Little Things and more posting. I may even upload 2 times a day sometime, depending on how many ideas I have. I will talk to you later today with a new post. Mwah!
