I’ve never cared much for New Year’s day until recently.
2013 was a horrible year and it felt like when things were bad, they got worse. My husband and I dealt with a house fire, three car accidents (one which involved a neighbour driving his car into our driveway and hitting our parked car!), job loss and the death of two grandparents. With the approach of the new year I thought, “Fuck it. Shit happens and you have to keep moving forward”.
I was hesitant at first but with the encouragement and support of my hubby and friends, I launched WoahStyle in March 2014 and began blogging. I finally found an outlet for my love of fashion. Aside from my family and friends, fashion is something that has been very important to me my whole life. It’s a way of expression, it’s an art form and it can make a monotonous day more exciting.
The response that I received is like nothing I could have ever expected and the connections I’ve made this year have been truly remarkable. The people I connect with are the ones that inspire me so much more than fashion magazines ever did because they’re real people going after what they want with no boundaries stopping them. I’m also very fortunate to have worked with some amazing brands in 2014 who believe in my personal style and aesthetic as a stylist. Thank you.
For all of the successes that I’ve had this past year, it’s because I know that I’ve worked hard to get there. My ideas never stop and before I have one idea executed and posted, another five are waiting in the queue of my notebook and two more are popping into my head. I guess what I’m trying to say is, work hard and anything is possible in this life. Get out there and make it happen.
Thank you all for helping me make 2014 a great year. I’m looking forward to 2015 and bringing you new and exciting things on WoahStyle and improving my craft as a blogger.
Happy New Year!
