I thought I’d share a quick life update with you guys. The holiday season is in full force & time seems to be moving so quickly. Ricky & I went to Las Vegas during Thanksgiving. It was both of our first time going there & you know… what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. (lol jk) We were visiting my grandparents there. We didn’t do much of any of the night life and I’m TOTALLY okay with that. It was nice to spend time with them!
We got home and 2 days later went to Hawaii for a week. That was nothing short of amazing. We’ve already booked our trip for next year! During that trip, I hadn’t really planned to take time off. I packed outfits & had all these ideas for fun photos, blog posts, stories etc. But once I was there – I really disconnected from my phone & just enjoyed every second. It was so nice. We got back a few days ago & have both been working late hours this week.
I’ve re-typed this paragraph about 20 times. I can’t seem to find the right words. Basically, I’ve been a bit MIA on sharing my typical try ons, OOTDS, etc. A lot goes on behind the scenes of all of those pictures we post on instagram. Spending hours getting the outfits ready, spending hours shooting the looks, spending hours looking at all the pictures we took and hating every single one. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE what I do. I am so entirely grateful for all the opportunities I’ve been given & where my blog has came in the last 1.5 years. I’m proud of myself. Sounds weird to say that, but I am. I guess the point I’m trying to make without it being a million words is that I want this space to be more organic. I think getting caught up in feeling like you have to post a photo every single day & taking any campaign just for the money defeats the entire point and purpose of enjoying being a blogger. I’ve taken a step back lately – saying “no” to brands , even if they offer me something good, because it isn’t organic to my space. I’m focusing on sharing what I want to share, when I want to share it.
This platform has really taught me a lot about myself. It’s made me realize that we all feel so much pressure to achieve certain things by a certain age & obsess over having our shit together. I’m putting all my efforts into enjoying my own journey & not comparing my life to any one else’s.
Ricky and I have already been planning our New Years Resolutions & have SO many goals we want to hit next year. I have a really good feeling about 2020!
I appreciate every single one of you who have been here to support me! I have so many ideas brewing for next year to make the most out of this platform & be a light for all of you!
