Oh my gosh, you guys have no idea how long I’ve been waiting to write these words. EEEEP! Welcome to Circa 1988!
You may know me from my previous blogging days of Crushing On Clothes, but I’m back with a new blog and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I blogged at Crushing On Clothes for about 5 1/2 years, but to be honest I felt really uninspired the last year or so of it. I was also exhausted and extremely busy – I had received a promotion at work, I was in the process of buying a house, I was traveling a lot both personally and professionally, and I had felt like I was posting outfit photos without any context simply for the sake of getting up content. So when the URL was up for renewal in April of 2016, I let it expire. To be honest, it felt like a little piece of me died (dramatic, I know, but it was my identity for such a long time!) and I wasn’t sure if I had made the right decision. But as time went on I knew that I wasn’t going to be able to update the blog as frequently as I should have, and I didn’t feel right slapping up a post just so content would go live on a regular basis.
So now, fast forward about 9 months, and I am back and ready to take on a new blog! I’ve been thinking about doing this for about 2 or so months now, but wanted to make sure I had content ideas, the time to dedicate to it, and the right name. I knew I didn’t want to create a fashion only blog, but more of a lifestyle blog. As some of you may know I am a recent home owner so that takes up quite a bit of my time (and $$$), but I also love to travel and test out new beauty products, which I feel like I didn’t share much over at CoC.
So take a look around and check out all of the new sections – fashion, beauty, home ownership, travel, food, and fitness. You can also shop my Instagram looks, and some of my favorite things I’m loving currently (I’ll keep this one updated!) If you have any blog post ideas you’d like to see, please let me know! I want this to be a place where you can come and maybe learn a thing or two, not just look at me prancing around in the middle of the street for outfit shots (although let’s be honest, that will absolutely be happening too 😃 )
