I'm a Terrible Blogger

Ever since the rebrand of my blog, I have been feeling extremely inspired to create fresh content, but at the same time, I've had a hard time translating the inspiration I am feeling into actual posts. I think this stems from the fact that I have a lot less free time these days. I'll admit, I have turned into a workaholic lately with my new job, going into the office on days I have off and working well before and after the hours I am actually expected to be there. On weekends, I no longer want to dress up and go take outfit photos for my blog. I just want to hang with my friends like a normal person and just live.

Today was one of those days–– Marlee was in town visiting, and I had planned in my head for her to shoot a ton of blog photos for me. She loves taking them, and has done a great job learning how to use my Canon (thank you, Marlee, for basically being my blog photographer this fall). But I didn't want to do it, and I didn't want my lack of interest in doing so to make things look forced. So I didn't. Instead, I left my heavy ass camera behind and we had a "Friendsgiving" day, exploring the Bryant Park Winter Village and the Christmas market in Union Square. We laughed. We saw way too many rats in the Subway. We had one of the best dinners of our lives, and I didn't even brush my hair when I woke up this morning because I didn't have to look put together to be in front of a camera. Everything was effortless and unforced and definitely not "Instagram goals" and it was one of the best days I've had in a while. I am a terrible blogger, and I'm ok with that because I don't have to be a perfect one.

P.S. –– For those wondering what camera we took these photos with, we used the portrait mode on my iPhone 7+. I've been using it more and more lately in lieu of my Canon 5D Mark III. To me, the Canon is absolutely irreplaceable, but it's nice to have a lightweight option on days I'll be gone from home for hours at a time and don't want to



  1. Hi Isabella! I totally understand where you’re coming from. I’m often told or asked why I don’t post as frequent anymore and the honest truth is, sometimes I just don’t feel inspired to. We’re Bloggers, but we’re also human and we need a creativity break. More blog posts will come and I’m excited to see where your blog goes in the future! - XOXO Tanisha totallytanisha.wordpress.com
