I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy New Year, Yay to 2016! I hope this year brings all of you good luck, positivity, and adventure. I am making it a goal write down at least 1-2 positive things from each day, something someone wise told me to manifest positivity into daily life. It will also be a concrete reminder I can look back on to keep me in a happy mindset when I have a bad day.
Before the New Year, my brother in law who is great at purging and organizing came to stay with us and helped us clean, and realize how much stuff we really have. In this blogosphere, I feel like buying and conspicuous consumption, a cycle that just keeps you wanting the next thing, and not using or appreciating what you already have is a huge issue. Monetizing a blog is essentially advertising for companies, and feeding into that cycle. So this year I am going to attempt something I have never tried before, I am not going to buy any new clothes for a year, and shop my closet. I am lucky having worked in the fashion industry for the past 10 years, so I have some great pieces to choose from, and in my links to similar items, I am going to find items on sale, and at lower price points to get you guys some deals 🙂 Or, do the challenge with me, and try to create fresh and fun looks out of your own closet!
So excited for starting 2016 on the right foot, I can’t wait to share new and exciting photos, & projects on the blog so stay tuned, be sure to follow along on my Instagram as well: @oaklandblonde
