Taking a Break...

Hi everyone!  I wanted to share with you my decision to take a break from blogging.  I don't know if I'll ever come back, but I'm going to at least take a break for a while.  This is something that I've been thinking about for some time, and I think it is the right time now.  I can't even believe that I've been blogging regularly for over 5 years already and this is my 1265th post!  This started as something fun for me to do, and a way to keep track of everything I buy (lol).  Then it grew to be bigger than I ever thought.  Not that it is a hugely popular blog by any means, but if you were to tell me on the first day that more than one person would actually read it, I would have been shocked!  =)  For the past year or so though, this has kind of felt more like a chore than anything else to me.  I think it's partially because I've been quite busy with work, life, etc. and partially because blogging (and maybe even shopping itself) just doesn't have the same appeal to me that it used to.  You've probably been able to tell to a certain extent through both the content and diminishing frequency of my posts.  So I had to ask myself what is it I want out of it if I'm not having tons of fun posting and sharing my outfits anymore.  And I think the answer is pretty simple...

Of course it is not easy to just completely stop either!  After all, this has been a part of my life for quite a few years, and the best part is "meeting" and chatting with those of you that I never would have met otherwise.  To my long time readers... I really can't believe that you are still reading this lol!  But on a more serious note, I sincerely thank you for being with me all these years.  It's definitely been a rewarding experience for me, and we've kept each other looking sharp at the gym which is always important business!  =P

Just because I'm going to stop blogging doesn't mean I won't be reachable though!  If you ever need to contact me for anything, I will keep my blog email address open and check it often:  mysuperficialendeavors@gmail.com.  I may also continue to post some OOTD pictures from time to time on Instagram/fb (I'm just not very good at being consistent with social media so I don't want to promise too much lol).  So I won't completely disappear!  I'd love to hear from you once in a while, so please don't hesitate to reach out!  And who knows, maybe after taking a break, I'll feel rejuvenated and breathe new life to the blog.  =)

  12. I've known about your blog for years and have been reading regularly for the past year or 2. Going to miss your Sunday Fundays and travel recaps. You have a great style of writing, your personality really shines through the words and it doesn't seem forced. Best of luck to you!

  13. Ahh! What the hell am I going to read when I relax in the evening? This is crazy but I've been reading your blog since 2010! I feel like we've been through so much of life together. I was living in Northern Quebec, and found your blog looking for a Lululemon review. We've been through marriages, break ups, moves, and job changes together (without you knowing that - lol).

    Thanks for all your hard work, have fun in your non-superficial endeavours :)

  14. You are honest, funny, and beautiful. You seem like someone I'd like to be friends with. Totally understand why you'd want to focus on your real life, not documenting everything here. Best of luck with everything!

  15. I'm a longtime reader and I just wanted to say thank you for all your writing over the years. I always enjoyed reading about your workouts, purchases, adventures and travel. My favorite was always Sunday Funday. I loved seeing what you wore and where you went! I'll miss your posts so much!!! How will I know what to buy or how to wear it?? ;-) I guess I'll have to reread the archived posts. I do hope you come back to blogging eventually. You are very talented. Your sweet and fun personality made you unique. Sending good wishes and big hugs.

  18. I keep still visiting your blog just in case you changed your mind. I have been around since the beginning, have purchased items from you, and have checked the blog for new postings nearly every day since day 1. Congratulations on such a successful blog and keep us posted with monthly updates!

  19. Thanks everyone for all your kind words and support! I truly appreciate you letting me share my life adventures and shopping habits with you. =) I wish the best for each and everyone of you as well, and I do mean it when I say please don't hesitate to reach out, even if it's just to say hi!

  20. Well, dang! I've been reading your blog for several years now. I loved all your product reviews (have bought some Korean skin care products I never would have known about if it hadn't been for you!) I always appreciated your candid and funny reviews. The fact that I'm a small Asian woman too, and we were similar in build and size (although you are several inches taller than me, so I considered you tall, lol!), made your reviews perfect for me. I was always tempted to buy stuff when you were cleaning out your closet, but I never did! I read your posts multiple times a week, and I will be so sad on Sunday evenings not to see what you wore all week or what workouts you did! You really did inspire people like me to be consistent about taking the time to take care of our bodies! Best wishes to you on your future endeavors. I know you called your posts "superficial", but there were some really real ones too. You shared with us some truly difficult decisions you made, your far flung travels (your Dubai trip was really cool!), job changes and struggles to fit time in to work out with real life! I appreciated your positivity, optimism and humor; I will miss you!

  21. Echo of other comments, I am going to miss your blog. Your reviews were very helpful and honest plus you introduced me to new brands. "Sunday Funday" is part of my wording hihihi.
    Best wishes on your adventures in life! Blessings

  24. You will be missed! I've bought bunch of things over the years (shoes, makeup, clothes!) all on your recommendations. Thank you for sharing so much of your life with us, even the difficult parts. Hope you resurface somewhere, sometime soon :-). Hugs!
