Hiiiii guys!! Happy 2018! Talk about long time, no blog! I went into full vacay mode for the holidays and have had such a hard time getting myself to sit down and do a post. I love the start of the new year and all that brings, but I have to be real in that it can get a tad overwhelming with all the resolutions, crazy workout + diet talk everywhere and just the whole “new year, new me” stuff. Just because we are now writing 2018 instead of 2017, that shouldn’t have to mean you need to make all these drastic changes to yourself and your life. I am all for bettering oneself, I just think that when we try to make crazy adjustments to our norm we end up failing. Maybe by “we” I mean me (hence why I don’t do resolutions!) I just think it’s better to focus on all things in moderation and just live your life the best you can.
Over the holidays I had time to reflect, on the amazingness of 2017. I couldn’t have ever dreamed I would grow my instagram to over 50k or that I would get to experience so many cool things (hello, fashion week!) in basically the first year of blogging. The amount of gratitude I have for all the support and love I received from friends, family, followers, brands and fellow bloggers is more than I could ever imagine (one of my favorite parts about this journey is all the people I have met along the way!) Plus, my hubby and I went on some amazing trips and the cake topper, we renewed our vows on our actual 10 year wedding anniversary (in Vegas with 18 friends!) I meaaaaan, I couldn’t be more thankful.
With that, my hope for 2018 is just to continue to share my love for fashion, to continue to inspire daily with my Instagram outfit posts, to continue to connect with my followers and to continue to build my brand. I would love the opportunity to work with more brands that I truly love. Last year I said no to some brands, not because I am above them or too cool, but because I will forever stay true to myself and that means only sharing looks that I actually wear in real life. I just think it’s so important to remain you and not get to the point where you are just putting things out there to make money. I would feel like I was lying (which I honestly feel shows in pictures. Or atleast I know that when I truly love a look it is obvious).
So 2018, let’s do this! No big changes for me, but instead just trying to do more and do it bigger. As always, if there are any things you guys would like to see (specific outfit posts etc), please message me!
I hope you have all had a great start to January! And also, I added a new tab “What I Am Loving” on my Menu bar where I am sharing my current wants + favorites, so be sure to check it out as I will keep it updated weekly.
Here are some of the things I am currently eyeing:
