if you can believe it, Almost Exactly has been around for 6 years. it wasn’t always a green beauty blog, but it was around.
a lot of you have been here since the beginning. i can’t properly express how thankful i am to you. a lot of you are new… and i also can’t thank you enough. you’re all important to me.
the reality is this blog hasn’t grown much in the last 18 months, and that’s on me. i haven’t been providing you with the great content i want, i can’t order new ingredients to try for really cool new d.i.y.’s, and i can’t keep up with the well-organized and edited photos on instagram… but why? i don’t want to say “i’m busy” because you all deserve more than that, but i am.
now i’m fortunate enough to be running a business singlehandedly while also working a full time corporate job in a foreign country. in my free time i’m trying to figure out how to see my family back in the U.S.
this blog has taken a back seat to all of that.
instead of giving you one post a month when you deserve more, i’m officially putting Almost Exactly on a hiatus for an undetermined amount of time starting 12/31/18. it’s time for me to focus my energy on my family, on me, on my business, and on my career. if there’s anything you want to pick my brain about for a post before that date, please comment or send me a message and i’ll make it happen. i’m happy to cram in as much as i can before i “leave.” i put that in quotes because it’s not permanent.
this site will still be paid for to remain up for anything you need, comments will still be open, and my instagrams will still be up (@alexraye_ae & @kietabotanicals). please don’t ever hesitate to reach out – i’m still here.
if you would like to continue your support, my efforts will be focused on Kieta Botanicals, which you can follow on instagram at @kietabotanicals , and you can find the company website at http://www.kietabotanicals.com . if you’ve made it this far into my online letter – thank you – and here’s a 10% off coupon for your first purchase of The Botanical Dew, sold only on my website. it’s only available for the first 50 people and expires 11/30/18.
i love you. i appreciate you. i’ll see you soon.
