I’ve thought about this long and hard but I’ve decided to take a little summer break from TwentySixStyle. As a self-confessed ‘yes’ person when it comes to work I’ve recently discovered that I’m a little burnt out – juggling a full-time job, blogging and in the midst of a big house move and project (!) I’m going to take a little while off to travel, re-group and come back refreshed and ready to go.

But the exciting thing is that on my return there’s going to be some really exciting projects I’m going to share with you guys and I’ve decided to take the blog in a slightly different direction. In the meantime, I want to hear from you – tell me what you like, don’t like, what you want to see more off etc on, because traffic is growing super fast and I want to know what you think. I can’t thank you all enough for your support and I’m so excited to come back already.

Have an amazing summer and I’ll see you really soon
