I'm going to get straight to the point. As of tonight, I will no longer be updating Fish Tank Fashion, and will no longer be a fashion blogger.
As you are all probably aware, I started in my (first proper "grown up") job last July. Some of you may know that shortly after that, I had some issues relating to my blogging and my job. Then everything seemed to die down. Unfortunately I was recently informed that there were several issues that still remained with my blog. After lengthy consideration of my personal situation, I had to come to the extremely difficult decision to stop blogging. This is why I haven't blogged since December, firstly because I was too upset whilst considering what I was going to do, and since then because every time I've sat down to blog, I've felt like a bit of a fraud.
Although the circumstances surrounding this situation were largely out of my control, in the end this is a decision I made myself, and as such I hope you respect it and don't give me grief for it. I know a few people may be angry or disappointed that I don't appear to have "fought" hard enough, but I've had to do what's best for my life as a whole. Please believe me when I say this is not a choice I have made lightly, and although I have come to terms with it as a necessary evil, I am incredibly sad to stop blogging.
At this point I'd just like to say, from the bottom of my heart, a huge thank you to everyone who has read Fish Tank Fashion and supported me over the life of this blog. Your kind comments, emails and tweets make it all worthwhile and have brought me so much happiness. I've been doing this for five and a half years, and I am so grateful to have had so many amazing experiences related to blogging. More than anything, I'm going to miss the fantastic community of fashion bloggers that I've had the privilege to be part of. I've met so many incredible people who I love spending time with - there are far too many to name, but you know who you are. I just hope we can stay in touch!
So that's it. There's not much more I can say, except once again thank you so much, I will miss this more than I can express in a blog post. And who knows, maybe this is only goodbye for now.
All my love, and the very best of wishes,
