Stay Connected


Dear lovely ones,

As you may have noticed from my recent pause in posting, I’ve decided to take a step back from blogging for the time being. At one level, this is the result of a myriad factors swirling together, but at another it is simply because I’ve been blogging constantly for over four years, and in recent months I’ve lost the ability to feel joy in it.

I hope that, by giving myself permission to live and breathe freely now, I’ll find my way back here sooner rather than later. In the meantime, you can catch me on Instagram. (You can take the girl away from WordPress, but you can’t take ridiculous snacks away from the girl.)

Thank you so much for your years of support. For reading, laughing, commenting, tasting, and baking along with me. It means more than you could ever know. Thank you.

I hope to see you again soon. Until then: love, hugs, giggles, and cheesecake forever.

Heel click,

    Good for you Hannah … we’ll miss your gorgeous posts but everything has its day. If you came back to blogging, great, but if you don’t we know you’ll be doing other exciting things. Enjoy.

  6. Hotly Spiced

    I will miss you and I have been thinking of you and wondering how you are seeing you haven’t been blogging as much lately. Congrats on a very fine four years. I hope you enjoy your break and come back to us when the time is right xx

  7. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I’m glad you’re doing what is right for you; when blogging becomes a chore, it is definitely time to take a step back. I will miss your posts but enjoy seeing your adventures on facebook (and if I ever get instagram, that way too). And tell me if you plan a trip to London! 🙂 xoxox

    Take a break and however long it lasts, know that we’ll all be here awaiting your return. We know you’ll miss us. 🙂

    I saw your Tweet that blogging wasn’t bringing you joy lately, and so that’s definitely a good time to step away for however long that takes. There’s no reason to force yourself to do something that’s supposed to be fun. If it isn’t, why bother? I’m glad that I still get to see your antics on Instagram! 🙂 xoxo

    You get us all involved with your life and then leave us high and dry. I don’t like it.

    1. Shenandoah Vegan

      I’ll whinge if I want to. You got your nerve.

  14. SeattleDee

    Thanks for adding a bit of sparkledust to our lives, and good luck on finding joy in your next adventure!

  15. Julia @ Chic To Do

    Aww, I’ll miss your posts! But enjoy the break and hopefully you’ll be able to find the joy in writing again soon!

  16. Helen | Grab Your Fork

    But who will eat all the peanut butter now? lol. But seriously, blogging should be a joy, even though it does feel more like a labour of love half the time. Live. Laugh. Eat. Repeat. I’ll still be stalking you on IG though 🙂

  17. janet @ the taste space

    Good for you, Hannah. I know Rob wanted nothing to do with his travel blog when he had posts from years earlier he was still writing up. Blog when and if you want. 🙂

  18. Simply Life

    Enjoy your time “off” – that’s the beautiful thing about blogs!

  19. Sarah

    Oh sweetie! I hope everything is ok with you. Have a good, well deserved, break – if you can’t feel the joy in it then there’s no point! Although I do hope to see you back and posting again in the near future! 🙂

  20. Johanna GGG

    Oh I will miss reading your sparkly prose and humour – enjoy your break – don’t make a stranger of yourself – and meanwhile I have a few of your recipes on my to do list

  21. Winston

    Take all the time you need, dear friend. You definitely deserve it. I’m sure this time away from blogging is going to be a meaningful one. We’re not going anywhere, don’t you worry =)

  22. Adrian (food rehab)

  23. Macky Blaise

    Missing your loveliness dearly, but so happy that you’re living more of a life these days. Keep up the excellent work (and play.) <3

    Hey darling Hannah, I feel SO CHURLISH and like a BOUNDER and a CAD that I didn’t see this sooner. You know I love you no matter where you are and how you do your thing! And am loving your instagrams. Stay lovely xx
