I’ve been so blessed to have such a loyal following of readers. I thank each and every one of you for going on this journey with me. As you know, I started this blog 5+ years ago with a passion to spread confidence and creativity among young women through personal style. My philosophy back then was the following: if you feel good about yourself, you will feel confident, and if you are confident, you will have the energy and focus to accomplish anything that you set your mind to. I translated that ‘feeling confident’ statement into looking your best through outfits. That’s why I felt in love with fashion; because it gives me a sense of self-expression, confidence and empowerment to be me. And therefore I wanted to spread that message to you with my blog.
Throughout the years as I’ve gotten older and wiser, I’ve come into the realization that confidence and creativity it’s a lot deeper than that. The challenge is the following. In a world full of materialism, consumerism, and thrive for perfection – it is almost impossible for us to focus our efforts into developing ourselves from within. The world has become pure competition among women on who is skinner, who is prettier, who shows more skin, and who’s wearing the latest and most expensive trends. We are so much more than that. So I want to give you more than just promoting fashion trends on my blog. I think that each one of us has so much potential. So I decided re-think my priorities on how I can use this voice, my blog, to positively influence those who follow me. It wasn’t until a few days ago that I came up with a plan.
Previously on my blog I only shared maybe 3% of myself because most of the content was based around outfits. But there’s so much more I want to share with you. For starters, I’ve moved 13 times in my life and lived in different countries. I’ve seen some crazy things, I’ve experienced a lot of ups and downs, and most importantly, I’ve learned from all of it. There is so much of that information that I want to share with you to hopefully inspire you to get out there and be your best self everyday. And there’s so much MORE of that information that I want to explore and learn together, with you, by utilizing this blog to positively influence anyone that comes across my website. There is SO much I want to talk about that it’s almost impossible for me to focus on a specific niche. So I decided to categorize all of those topics into the following 3 buckets:
1) Living healthy. We do not know our destiny, but we can have some kind of influence on how our bodies will behave for the rest of our lives. I take health extremely seriously because I believe in the following philosophy: If I’m going to spend the rest of my life in this body, then I’m going to prepare, feed, and treat it right. So in this section I will share tips on how we can accomplish this together everyday in a world full of fast-food, temptation, and busy schedules. Here we will also learn new information together and explore this topic in fun ways. Additionally, I have an immense love for taking care of myself on the outside too, but as naturally as possible. AKA enhancing our natural beauty. So here I will reveal all the information I’ve learned, and will learn, on how I take care of my skin, hair, teeth, etc. Because those are body parts too! Living healthy also means taking care of ourselves on the outside. Every part of our bodies counts.
2) Exploring creativity. I absolutely adore creativity. Reason being is that it forces me to try new things without the fear of failing. It allows me to be innovate, explore myself, and develop my imagination in a judgement-free way. I use it as a way to meditate and connect with myself. So I will use this section in a few different ways. For starters, I’m going to show you fashion from a different perspective. I want us to use fashion and style as a way to explore our own creativity and self-expression through how we dress. So yes, I will continue to do outfit posts because putting together looks keeps me creative and playful. It’s not about wearing luxury, but about playing with colors and patterns visually. I will try to help you put together looks from what you already have in your closet. If not, I will provide you with affordable options. Additionally, here we will explore our creativity. I will share my creations to hopefully inspire you to make your own. I will do this in the form of DIY projects, baking/cooking attempts, interior design, DIY nails, fun hair tutorials, seasonal projects and whatever other things that could inspire us to be creative.
3) Being happy. In other words, living life to the fullest. I don’t even know where to begin! A lot of really important topics that we can talk about here. There’s so much I’ve observed and learned from the 13 times that I moved in my life; all which have helped me live a more fulfilling life. From really important life-changing lessons, to feeling genuinely happy, to living passionately, and much more. The conversation here will be endless. I’m really intrigued by this topic so I spend a lot of my free time reading about psychology. I’m excited to get this conversation started and to learn more together, with you, by using this section of my blog.
I truly believe that everyone in this planet can make a difference in other people’s lives. I put together this blog to inspire you to be your best self inside and out. Hopefully I can accomplish that. I will try to have at least 1-2 topics per week that we can focus on. I also wanted to thank you for reading my blog everyday, I’m very excited for the opportunity to write more, specially to surface topics that can make a difference. Oh and one more thing – please email me at [email protected] if there is anything specific that you need advice or help with. I will take all suggestions from you guys to create content that helps spread a positive message.
