From a young age, it was evidently clear that fashion was going to be a pivotal part of my life [you should see my childhood photos!]. Over the course of my life, this journey has been shaped, formed and weaved in many directions. I have found that fashion can be all consuming if we allow it to be. It can steal our true identities, and force us to place our value in how others see us, how much we own, or how much we work. I have learned many things along my fashion journey that have truly shaped how I view fashion all of which have led me to now be speaking to you on this very platform! So today, I want to get a bit vulnerable with you by talking about what I have experienced while being a woman who loves fashion, and the how it’s changed my life.
Ugh. Dating. NOT THAT again! It seems to be the topic that everyone gets so reluctant to talk about… doesn’t it? Someone brings up the topic of dating and immediately we go into rolling our eyes and letting out huge sighs as we are reminded of some of our unfortunate past experiences with dating… am I right? I hear you. I have been through my fair share of heartbreaks, frustrations, annoyances, disrespect, and poor communication. Sigh.
Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful… slash oh my goodness this season is beautiful but the only thing frightful right now is how busy I am with all the things! Red alert red alert! Can anyone else relate? While we all love the joy and fellowship that comes during the Holiday season, something we ALL face (whether we like it or not) is being crazy busy and running around like crazy like a flock of reindeer trying to make it to every house on Christmas night. WORD.
Friends! It is finally here. A few weeks ago I asked you all if you would be interested in me doing a blog post on gift guides with a TWIST. Right now, there are tons of gift guides on the market from amazing bloggers that do a FABULOUS job at giving you the best of the best fun gift ideas. Because they do such a fabulous job, I truly believe they have it covered when it comes to awesome holiday gift guides that are fun and holiday specific. SO when I asked you all about doing a gift guide that was a bit different, I got excited to hear that you would be interested in this fun different concept!
