Hello my lovelies!
I’ve been reaching out to my favorite bloggers this last week asking for some advice and a few beautiful souls got back to me and surely helped me out! I’ve been wanting to start a blog for the longest time. Probably about three years now. I finally had the time, not working here in Canada and all, so I took the leap and started it. As a graduate from a business school specializing in marketing, I know the market for bloggers is oversaturated. Common sense terms, there are SO many bloggers trying to make it big. While that is in the back of my mind, I know most of the wonderful blogger women who are big, didn’t start their blogs with that intention. As many of them have shared with me, they started it for themselves. They use their blog as their creative outlet and for fun. They also advised me that I shouldn’t look at other “more successful” blogs and compare my own. Because I will only discourage myself. It’s just like comparing yourself to other people and thoughts start flowing and running away like why can’t I be like him/her? Why can’t my life be like his/hers? It’s just unnecessary negativity that I will not let into my life.
So I have vowed not to do that. While I will still follow my favorite bloggers, I will enjoy reading their content and gain inspiration from them rather than trying to compare. And while being in fashion is my ultimate goal and dream, that just isn’t what my life is right now. Right now, my husband and I are spending a quite a bit of time in the mountains and hiking. And why not write what I know. So the blog will be taking a small turn to more about my hikes and all the things people don’t tell you about hiking, certain hikes, etc. The real truth about hiking! Fashion will still be here, beauty will still be here but more of hiking and mountain activities will be here too! All posts related to hiking will be under the new tab of Mountain Adventures and our travels, when we can start LOL, will be under Our Adventures.
I hope you all will enjoy the more authentic side of the blog and even if you’re not a hiker, you may find humor in what I write about the hikes in my personal opinion and how youtube videos on hikes lie. LOL you’ll learn more when you read about these hikes! Come back on Friday for some of my favorite summer looks and some transition looks as fall creeps closer!
