Welcome to my blog! I am so excited that you are here!
After all this time, I decided to start a blog for a couple of reasons.
First off my hope is that this will become a guide – to city living, makeup, favorite eats, travel tips, or a place to showcase some of my interests and progress (like room décor!) in the hopes that someone will find them useful.
Secondly – full disclosure – I work in marketing and the beauty industry, so I thought a blog would be a good platform to showcase my work and my aesthetics. I am hopeful that if I work at it and with a little bit of luck, it will even help me in my career development. We shall see.
I also have to give credit to my dad who told me to take on activities outside of work. And while starting a blog probably isn’t what he had in mind (I think he specifically said to “study more,” but I was never good at studying!), he always has my best interest in mind so when he said I need to be doing something outside of work to improve myself, I thought why not make something for myself like build a portfolio of a sort to reflect who I am.
All of this isn’t to say I didn’t have any doubts starting my blog. With so many beautiful blogs out there, it can be more than a little intimidating!
But sometimes you have to cast away your doubts and your fears, take a leap of faith. Sometimes someone just needs to nudge you in the right direction. I appreciate my boyfriend and friends for your input and encouragement, and of course my dad for telling me to do more in life.
I am beyond excited to share this journey with you. Thank you so much for reading.
Stay tuned for another post (very) soon!
