reflections



















Wearing a retro dress, Vero Moda blouse, unknown belt and hat, Hush Puppies loafers, Aritzia tights, gifted jewelry.

As the year comes to an end I'm taking time to reflect on my life, not only off the internet, but on. When you call yourself a blogger or a YouTuber, you develop a different persona that resides on the internet, but after a certain amount of time those two, initially separate, lives begin to overlap and bleed into each other. When I first started fashion blogging I never thought that four years later I would be sitting here and writing a new post, but I am, and I am so thankful. It's been such an incredible journey and I'm so blessed that I have such lovely readers. Fashion blogging has changed my life because it has enabled me to be who I am, fully, even when being fully myself offline was sometimes really hard, and for that I am so incredibly thankful. Furthermore, as a new YouTuber, I'm coming into contact with so many new people that each share the same interests as me, and when the world feels like it's caving in and there is too much too handle, I'm reminded that there are always people out there who know exactly how I feel.

December 31st will mark the fourth birthday of my blog, and as the day draws nearer, I can't help but think that the past four years have been an amazing journey, and I can't wait to see what the new year brings.
