Blogging Break

22nd May 2014

I have decided to take a break from blogging for the next few years.  My baby is only small for such a short time and I want to spend my days enjoying him and any others who may come along.  I am planning on coming back to The Pretty Persuasion sometime in the future but I just cant say when.  In the meantime please look through my archives to see if the information you want is there. I am also happy to take emails from readers during this time.  Lastly, I am still working as an Image Consultant but through my online services only.
