As most of you know, I've spent the past months over in the UK but now my return to Germany is only a couple days away.
During my stay I've had plenty of time re-evaluating life and thinking of where I want to see myself in the future and I think I finally came to the conclusion to say good bye to most of my pastel self.
Maybe you saw it coming - I kinda did, I'm not gonna lie. Though I got to say, I don't know how final it is. Chances are, I might be sporting my fairy side on future cons but it's impossible for me to predict that at this point.
As for now, I've made peace with the thoughts of leaving this fashion. It's been a big inner struggle for me, especially as all of this has been a major part of my life. But I feel also that now is the perfect time to move on and to make it official.
Well, it's not really sudden news considering how sparse my appearances in this fashion were in all of these past months. But I'm happy with this decision and I feel like making things more or less final will life a heavy weight off of me. I no longer feel obliged to keep up with all this, I no longer feel like I owe something. And even though this might hit some of my followers a little bit hard I hope you can all understand why I'm making this decision.
I need to clear up things for me, once and for all and in a way I moved on a long time ago. My priorities have made a 180° turn and I'm far from being the person I was 1 or 2 or 5 years ago.
That doesn't mean I have necessarily changed as a person but my path is another one.
After all, that's what all this life is about - figuring it out.
This fashion has been a huge part of my life. I've met amazing people thanks to it and I hope I could share some of my adventures on this blog to your enjoyment.
Thank you for staying with me through all these years, it's been an amazing time!
As for Pastel Raindrops - I'm afraid this is another journey which ends here. Perhaps I'll pick up blogging at another point of my life, at least I'd love to, but I can't make any promises. And even if I did, it'd bee something completely different. So here's another farewell with that.
Lastly I'd like to announce that once I've settled back in at home, I'll be going through my closet and I'll be parting with probably a lot of my things. Granted, I'll be keeping some of my favourites - at least for now - but there'll be a major clean out.
Look out on my FB page for further announcements on that. That's also where I'll be selling most of the things in case you're interested in that.
Now, this has been a long entry with somehow sad news.
I'm sorry for ending things like that but know that I'm not gone for good. I'm just taking different directions.
Once again, thank you for all your love and support, it's been one of the best times of my life. Sounds cheesy but it's true.
