On Moving to New York and Discovering New Dreams

Hey guys! This blog has been out of comission for the past few months for many reasons, the biggest of these being that I recently moved to New York City!

I always knew that I wanted to be in this city one day, and I realized this summer that “one day” might as well be now. That’s when I decided to make the move to New York with my sister. I left a retail job that wasn’t giving me anything, and decided to take a big leap of faith to a city that I had always known would become my future. I’m very lucky to have had my circumstances line up so that this dramatic change was possible with no real prospects. Not everyone is so lucky. While I’ve had a few opportunities here and there, I’m not where I want to be yet. I’m chasing something bigger, and I know I’ll get there soon enough.

Some days it feels like I’m still stuck in the same place I was and doubts creep in. Only I’m stronger than I was a few months ago – a few weeks ago even. I’m in New York City and the opportunities I have here are unlike any other. The moment I feel like I can’t do it, the energy of the city reminds me why I need to try.

Making big decisions terrifies me, and I’m slowly working on that. I have to. I’m starting to see a picture of where I would like to end up, and I’m slowly figuring out the steps to get there. While I may not know them all yet, I know that it feels important to develop my writing skills through this blog. There is no better feeling than successfully sharing something I genuinely love with the world (or at least a small portion of it). In this next chapter, I hope to explore the fashion community more fully and share that with you guys. While I still plan on blogging about lifestyle topics and beauty, my main focus will be on what really excites me: fashion and style.

Just waking up in this city every day feels like a dream come true. And for now, that is enough. I hope you stick around as I explore this city.
