Congrats to Our Facebook Fan Winner!!! Beautyburg Will BBL....

Wonder who won all this awesome Wonder Woman stuff?!

Hi Everyone!  I know it's been a long time, and it seems like I just went completely M.I.A.  It's been personally really a difficult, busy and stressful time in my life.  I have tried to find balance with Beautyburg and life outside of it, but at the moment, it's not really possible to keep everything juggling.   With a lot of sadness and guilt, I am taking a short break from blogging.  You may see posts here and there, but at the moment, I cannot commit to it in the same way as I once did.  This was a really difficult decision for me, as I would seriously get sleepless thinking about how I am letting people down by not posting enough.   I hope that you can hang on while I take a little break, but I really want to be back soon!

With that, I would like to thank you guys for being such awesome followers, readers, fellow bloggers!  Thank you for checking in and for all your kind comments and emails.  Beautyburg is almost at 2000 followers and almost at 1800 fans on Facebook!  That literally blows my mind!

Now onto our winner............ the winner of this wonderful Wonder Woman stuff is Hristina!  Congrats Hristina!!!!  Thank you everyone else for participating!

Sunday Night At Beautyburg - Finding Balance

Happy Sunday everyone!  A really late Sunday (Monday in some parts of the world) post for me.  This past week has been insanely busy.  I am trying to find balance in life, work and love (namely this blog).  I just want to do everything all the time, and we all know that's not really sustainable... so where to draw the line? 

I picked this photo from a really scenic park on the German/Czech border where I went hiking once.  At the time I was in a similar situation and had to pry myself away from work for what felt like a forced vacation.  I was constantly checking my Blackberry.... staying up at odd hours to see what was going on back in New York.  But at some point on the vacation, probably when I was on this hike, things kinda came into perspective.  I was worrying myself sick with stress when I was literally half a world away.  And it just seemed stupid.

So bringing it back to now and today.  I am trying to find balance in my life where I still find time doing the things I love to do (meaning this blog) and getting everything I need and want to do done.  I can easily over-commit myself, so I am stopping myself from feeling like I have to force myself to blog and put out content in a way that isn't sustainable (e.g. staying up past midnight to make sure that I have three posts out the next day).

So until I find that groove, don't be upset at me if I'm posting only once daily.  I am working on finding a balance, but please know that this blog is such a passion and pleasure for me.... and I wouldn't want to give it up, ever.

I hope you guys have a great week.  I am looking forward to tomorrow! Good night!!!
