Hi there, and thank you for stopping by my little slice of the internet!

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that my blog is on a little "hiatus" for these next few months...

I've had this page for 3 years now, and I'm pretty proud of what I've achieved in that time, but I've also completely fallen out of love with blogging. As a person, I've changed a lot in these 3 years, I have different values, new passions and I've gotten to a point where my blog no longer feels like it fits with me or my lifestyle.

Over the last couple of weeks, I've had such a (business) head vs heart debate as to whether I continue to work on my blog as it is currently (travel and beauty) or to "start over" as more of a lifestyle page, giving myself more freedom on what I can write about.

Don't get me wrong, I still absolutely love both travel and beauty, but by restricting myself to those two topics, I'm limited on the content I can create. Some days, I don't want to edit product photos or write reviews of places; I just want to write about what's on my mind, a book I read that sparked a new thought, a really good recipe I've tried...

I was told that to be successful, I needed to have a niche, and I guess what I'm trying to say is that I don't want a niche, I want my niche to be me and my lifestyle. The blogs I love to read are the ones where I feel like I know the person behind the words, where I can relate to what they are talking about. Reading back over some of my own posts, they no longer sound like me, they sound like past Naomi, and I'm ready to bring Oh Six Eleven up to date with present Naomi and her ideas, thoughts and opinions.

Admitting all of this to myself has been a little bit of a scary process, but I feel like now is the right time to take the leap of faith. I'm so looking forward to working on new content, a new design and falling back in love with blogging again.

I'm not sure how long OSE will be on hiatus for, hopefully no more than 3 months. In that time, all of my posts will still be available to check out on here, and it will only be when I re-launch that the site may be down for a few days!

I hope you'll come along with me on this journey, and I will speak to you soon!

All my love,
