If you’re reading this, then you have discovered my blog and have taken the time to come and check it out, so for that, I am grateful! I never did an official introduction on my blog and just started making posts, without sending this message to my audience. This is a hard thing to begin. A lot of time and effort has went into creating this blog and content thus far, and I only hope to continue to create fun & informative content for you all. I have many interests, which range from health/wellness, shopping, activities, coffee, cooking and more. My content will be a variation of all of the above, with my own little twist to it. I love putting outfits together on a budget and creating fun/different recipes to try. I love when friends come to me for fashion advice, healthy recipes or restaurant recommendations, and also love scrolling through Instagram and getting inspired by others. For so long, I have wanted to create a blog but held back for the longest time because I don’t want people to think I’m full of myself or conceited, because if you know me, I am far from that. I feared people would think less of me or that I lack character, but then one day I decided to take the leap and create this webpage. Because why not share what I love and the things that interest me? I know that I get motivation and help from other people’s content, so I would love to be able to inspire others in this way as well.
I am far from knowing everything there is to know about fashion, cooking, traveling, etc. but every day is a learning process but I know what I like and what makes me feel happy. I don’t spend a fortune on clothes, food or traveling and although I love to shop, eat well and have fun, I could consider myself a smart shopper when purchasing something. I look for sales, coupons and clearance items. Many “known” bloggers have content filled with upscale clothing and accessories, such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Christian Louboutin’s, etc. I can tell you right now that if this is what you’re looking for, you are not going to find it here. I RARELY purchase full priced items and the last time I indulged in buying myself a name brand item (Michael Kors) was years ago. A few years back I would always want to buy the “hottest, trendiest” items, regardless of the price (which was stupidity if you ask me). Now, I am a sensible shopper in all aspects of my life and really take the time to think if something is “needed” or “wanted.” Most of the time I put back ¾ of the items in my cart and make rational decisions when shopping. How I look at it, is that I rather spend $100 on a whole outfit, dinner and a fun activity opposed to $100 on a single pair of shoes. This is of course and example, but there are ways to stretch your money, and this is something I hope to share in future posts.
I have no idea really how to blog, build content or take professional looking photos, but I’m here, trying to do it and learning new things; but I also have much to share. It took me a few months to build this blog and I am not in any way, thinking that this blog will blow up and I’ll be making a ton of money, but I felt the craving to share my style, passions, and lifestyle with all of you.
To any of you who have read previous posts or if you are a new reader, I would love to ask a few small favors of you:
- Please be patient with me- patient while I learn because it’s a complicated journey. Like I said, I don’t have the greatest pictures or content, but I only hope to get better over time.
- I will always appreciate the constructive criticism, but please be easy on me. It’s hard to put yourself out there and I can only hope that you enjoy the content I am providing. If you don’t have anything nice to say, please keep it to yourself.
- I hope that you can help me in shaping this site as a place where you can come to learn, laugh and have fun! I would love to hear what you want me to blog about! Healthy dessert recipes? Travel tips? Weekend date night outfit? You get the idea lol I can’t wait to interact with as many of you as I can and seeing comments from you all will be awesome!
- If you like what you have seen so far, please share on social media or Instagram with your friends and family who you think would be interested in my posts. The more I know you are reading, the more I will naturally want to share!
I am happy to have finally taken the initiative to write an official “introduction” to why I am blogging and although there are millions of other bloggers out there, I hope you can continue to follow my writing journey! Thank you for reading and I’ll see you on the next post xox
