2014 Recap | 4 comments:

Hey guys! I thought I should do a little recap of my blog during 2014 even though I wasn't blogging the whole year. Yup, I've only seriously gotten into blogging since March and only started doing outfit posts since May. I technically started my blog back in 2013 but I only posted once in a while and it wasn't anything serious. I never thought I would get into blogging but that's the beauty of life: it's always surprising you.

Anyways, let's begin!

March/April/May


I started my blog back in 2013 as a place to write down my thoughts and share advice with other people. I went on a "hiatus" or in other words, wasn't sure if I was going to continue blogging. I came back in March because I was feeling bored from my life and needed a creative outlet again. Here's my first outfit post, yikes! haha.

During this time, I was also able to start a travel section and share my passion for travel with all of you. I blogged about my trip to NOLA and hopefully I'll be able to post more travel guides in 2015!


June/July/August


The summertime is when I started doing outfit posts more often and posting on a consistent basis. I was also doing a lot of product reviews and writing about traveling. I pretty much had nothing to do over the summer but it's nice to see that I made so much progress with the blog back then! haha.

September/October


Since I was still new to blogging, I had to learn how to manage my time better once school started. At this point, I started to take my blog more seriously and got into the business side of things such as marketing. I also attended Rochester Fashion Week which was a great boost for my blog!


November/December


These past two months were quiet ones on my blog. I did join some networks and started promoting my blog more on sites like Facebook. I was also lucky enough to work for the first time with an amazing company like Marley Lilly. It was a great way to end the year and I'm excited to see what's in store for me in 2015! 



I can honestly say I'm so grateful for discovering something like blogging and all the opportunities it's given me. Blogging has taught me so many lessons but the most important one is that passion changes everything. I've become so much happier once I started doing what I'm passionate about and it's led to improvements in all areas of my life. Who knew this could all happen in one year? Certainly not me back last January! I suddenly have so much more faith in new beginnings


Until next time lovelies,
