♥ things blossom in their time. they bud and bloom. blossom and fade. everything in it's time.

two years ago today i wrote my first blog post.

i initially started this blog because i had an insatiable love for all things glamorous
and a unique way of looking at fashion that i felt i needed to share with whoever
cared to read it.

i originally began writing this blog with the hope of building a foundation for my
dream career as a wardrobe stylist- but along the way i began making jewelry,
writing for regarding design blog, making friends with lots of local bloggers who
share similar interests and dreams as i do, and have become way more interested
in the sociological aspect of fashion rather than rambling on about why i love
clothes so much.

and while in some ways, i have strayed a bit from what i set out to do-
i have found that writing this blog has opened up my life to so many
wonderful opportunities that i never would have had if i had kept all of
my thoughts to myself and never shared them with anyone.

i still have no idea what i want to do with my life, but i do know
that this creative process of writing every day has served me well,
and has helped me blossom into whatever i am meant to be.
thank you so much for reading.

ps. thank you to my bestfriends (my first readers) for surprising
me yesterday with this gorgeous bouquet of peonies!

  4. What a beautiful post! I am with you, writing and posting definitely helps me sort things out ;)

    PS - The Tree Of Life was visually amazing, such beautiful cinematography, the story was a bit disjointed for me, but I am glad I saw it, it definitely made me think.

  5. happy blog birthday! (such beautiful flowers!) i love what you wrote, specifically this:

    "...this creative process of writing every day has served me well, and has helped me blossom into whatever i am meant to be."

    very beautifully written :)

  6. Congrats on your blog birthday! I am a fairly new blogger, and one of the things I enjoy about it so much is that it forces me to bring a little creativity into my life every day. Some days are definitely better than others, but at least I am trying! Keep up the (great!) work.

  7. Hey Sam,

    It's Gina from the fashion industry class two summers ago. You also went to a Ladies Who Launch event with me and Katie. I had no idea you had just started blogging at the time you emailed us about your blog. Suffice to say I thought it was awesome from the beginning and still do. I think I read it almost daily right along with the Sartorialist. Happy Blog Birthday!


♥ tell me how you really feel!
