It has been a while, to be exact - 3 months since I found some time for blogging ! When I got some time today to take my laptop and pen down my thoughts, the first thing that came to my mind was to update the blog. A few of you have been asking me why I haven't been writing here and how they miss being here ! I thought I owe a reply to all of you and it feels so great when I read those words 'Miss u' from you readers. So, today I decide to update you all with what has been keeping me busy and why I am being so irregular here.
I love blogging and there is no doubt about it. I have been blogging for more than 5 years now and yes this blog is older than my kid !! As a not-so-new-mommy, now I find ample time for myself and I was not sure if I had to get back to my job that I quit 5 years back. That is when 'designing' came to my mind. Being a designer is my long lost passion, be it an interior designer or textile designer the craving was always inside me ! Having taken a break from my career I decided to give it a shot and follow my passion. A passion that would earn me some money as well.
I prefer to be financially independent and suggest the same to all ladies I know. Blogging is my passion too but I thought I need some income for myself and blogging wasn't helping me much to earn. Also when I throw away the unused cosmetics (that expire) I feel so very guilty ! So I decided not to hoard things that I don't use much and thus not force myself to write here. I like to blog only when I 'feel' to do so and not because I have to. I was thinking about all this for a while and decided to take a break here and launched my design studio - A's Studios in Chennai on Jan 1, 2015.
Yes, it is going to be almost an year !! One of you had asked me why I never shared this news here so I thought I'll do that today :) With God's grace and support and blessings from friends and well-wishers the business is doing good. As with any business the initial few months demanded a lot of my time and I did try my best to split by time equally for blogging and designing as well. During this festive and wedding season I was totally held up with orders and that was one of the main reason for this long gap ! Also I had a couple of weddings in the family that demanded a lot of my time and now I am slowly getting back to the routine :) I also made a trip to the U.S for about 3 weeks and did crazy shopping. If you have been following me in Instagram you would have already seen bits and pieces of my haul there ! Anyways will do the haul post in the blog very soon :)
Meanwhile, if you like to see my designs you can check out my facebook page - A's Studios
Do visit the store for your tailoring needs if you are around Adyar, Chennai [or even if you are anywhere in this world ;) ] and I promise to do my best :)
So this is the news from my side and I will try my best to be regular here, because I love being here as much as you do. Thanks for reading this long post and being always there supporting me. Now, let me hear it back from you, what have you been doing all this while? Any interesting updates? Please do share :)
