Hello lovely people! I feel like I haven’t had a REAL blog post in years, but it’s actually been like a month really. I know some of you are wondering where I’ve been, and honestly I don’t blame you. I’ve been posting on here non-stop for almost two years, so the question is definitely understandable – but guys, I haven’t forgotten about you! Keep reading to find out why I took this mini break and what I’ve been working on during my “time off” from my blog.
Remember when I told you guys that I felt like I was putting my brand, HerStyle Media to the side and not investing as much time into as I was my personal blog? Well I definitely changed that! This past Thursday I hosted my first NYC event for HerStyle Media – launching our Create N Chill Series. I created the series after seeing how easy it was to attend a networking event and leave without making one connection. Reason being because there were too many people and you might have felt intimidated, and another reason being that most times we attend these events with our friends and only end up with them the whole event. So I set out and created this series to be an intimate setting, where you were able to get to know everyone in the room and feel comfortable doing so. There were 25+ girlbosses in the room networking, sharing their stories and having fun – which meant that my mission was accomplished!
Another reason I’ve been so MIA here is because with the events side of HerStyle Media I also launched our merchandise side as well. Our #GRLPWR collection has been announced on shopherstylemedia.com and I’m SO excited to be able to share this milestone with you guys! It’s been a long time coming, but I finally did it.
I’ve been spending a lot time reflecting on my career path and what I really have planned for myself. This isn’t an easy thing to figure out, but the journey is always so worth it. Focusing on the things you love doing, and understanding the things that don’t really spark you interest are really important. Everything I’ve learned so far has helped me get to where I am now, but in these past months I’ve been able to really plot out where I see myself in the next year, which has been amazing.
Spending more time with my boyfriend is definitely on this list. As our bond grows stronger, it’s important for me to continue to show my love and appreciation by having quality time with him. At the end of the day, being able to have time with you lover, friends and family should be at the very top of your list. These are the people who love and support you – so make sure that they’re receiving the attention they need from you.
Anyways, I have so many new things to introduce here on the blog, so I’m back guys! I can’t wait to share with you all 🙂
