Back in 2010 (whoa!) I started this blog as a way to express my love for fashion and style.
Although I still love these things, my life has taken turns and therefore, so will this blog.
I want this blog to grow with me.
As I get older, I realize that I need to start really appreciating what I already own, instead of always wanting the next pair of Jimmy Choo's or the next hot trend.
I always seem to want, want, want...instead of seeing what is already in front of me-which is A LOT.
I will be purging my closet and selling the majority of it on Threadflip. What I haven't worn in >6 months = I don't need.
I will also be on a "shopping hold" for the next two months, which I will talk about more in another post.
Now for the more serious stuff.....(if you can bare with me)
When I first started my blog, I compared my blog with others' and thought - "wow, I really love the way she wore that-I need it" OR "I wish I could afford those shoes she is wearing" ETC.
I did this for quite awhile, buying things along the way that I did not need - actually, way too many things that I didn't need.
I used to plan my days off around "outfit posts" and not actually enjoying the days that I had to myself. I mean let's be real, I work 40 (or more) hours in an emergency room and that doesn't leave much room for "play time" and blogging.
Why? Why did I think I needed to rush out and get those pictures? Why did I need to buy all of these things and feature them in a post or two? What the **** are you doing Lynzy?
I feel that this blog needs to be a place that appropriately reflects who I am. I am a runner. I am a healer. I am an animal lover. I am someone who wants to have a big, happy family. I am someone who loves to help others.
Yes, I love fashion - but this blog needs to reflect more of everything else in my life.
There are projects and events I have attended through blogging (more fashion related) that I have no desire to attend or take part in again. Mostly, because I felt that some of those people have no actual desire to "know" me or to really establish any type of relationship.
On the flip side, I have met some amazing individuals in this community that I adore. People that I hope to keep in touch with for a long, long time.
Anyways, the bottom line is this:
You will be seeing less (only 1 or 2 a week) of those outfit posts featuring all this "new stuff" I don't need and more of what inspires me every day. I hope that you can enjoy the ride with me and this blog as we adjust to the new year.
2013: The year of more organic blogging! :)
