Butterflies

Hello friends. 

Bella Q here, and I am back to blogging. 

Good to be back. 

There's been a lot of changes in my life recently, mostly positive ones, but it seems that change itself is a stresser, even good change. I just got a bit overwhelmed with all my projects, transitioning into my new job, and the joys and duties of blogging. Blogging has taken over all of my spare time, and as much as I love to post and visit people's blogs, I need to put myself on a media diet, and restrict the time spent in the blogger-sphere. So my readers, I am cutting down to a skinny 30 minutes a day, and that's not very much is it? So please forgive me if I don't comment as much as I used to, or post quite as frequently. I will do what I can when I can, and I thank-you all for your understanding. 

Expect to see 3 posts a week from me, and I'll try to keep them short and sweet. And hopefully of interest to you. I'll update you on some of my projects, several of which I am thrilled to no end about and can't wait to share them with you. Meanwhile, there will be some fine-tuning of this little blossom, hopefully in the key of YOU LIKEY. 

I'd like to thank all of my dear readers, followers, and friends. You have really made this crazy little page worthwhile, and I do enjoy expressing myself here, and getting to know so many wonderful and stylish souls all over the world. You make my day by being in it. 
Thank you so much! 
                                                                                                                          XO.-Bella Q

Can totally understand needing to pull back! If blogging is not your full-time job, it can easily start to feel like one if you let it. I've had to shed a couple obligations myself to prepare for some changes in my life too.

Love the dress!

I struggle with time for my blog reading and posting too. The last few week's I've only blogged twice a week, where I usually post 3 times a week. And I've been doing a lot of skimming of my favorite blogs too. So we've all been there! Enjoy your projects and this exciting time in your life.

I Love how clear your perspectives are, I may not be able to reply to all of the comments too, as the drugs do sometimes make me so drowsy, but one thing for sure chica, I will always be #teambella all the way. Love you dearly sweetheart

I know EXACTLY how you feel! Sometimes I am so busy blogging that my artwork gets put aside and I don't want to even think about the neglected housework!

Stay true to what you can do with no stress. We'll be here waiting to hear from you!

Smiles,
Diane

Photography isn't easy.. Keep practicing.
If you r going to some event to photograph and the light is poor. Use flash!
If the venue is very bright no flash..

I love the sleeves of this dress, and those sunglasses are rad! I hear you on blogging taking over a bit. I've taken a serious break to pack up my entire house and I've felt really guilty!
