Happy Tuesday! I was really thinking lately about my blog and the direction I want to take it. I was thinking about new layouts, filters, etc. when it hit me... I did not just start this blog to share my love of fashion and beauty with you all (which no worries, I still will!) But I started this blog to have an open platform to share my ups and downs with you all with life, my health (aka being a type one diabetic--while loving donuts & hating needles) and of course keeping in mind that just like me you all probably go through the same stuff.
I honestly have always lived my life with no regrets. I believe that everything I go through in life whether it be negative or positive is for a reason and helps me to grow as an individual. I am also incredibly lucky that I have amazing friends, a sweet boyfriend, and family members who have seen me and loved me through thick and thin.
I really want this blog to be a place where girls can go for more than the latest trends. I want this blog to be a place you can go to when you feel down on yourself and need to laugh; a place where you go to get some inspiration after a bad break up; a place where you can read my posts and be like wow! she gets me. A lot of bloggers out there make it look like they have the perfect life...and trust me none of us are perfect! We all have days we feel heftier than usual or don't want to get out of bed.
But always remember that there is a brighter tomorrow... I know that sound cliche, but trust me. Learn to surround yourself with people that are your "safe havens", so when things get stormy you have your rocks. Learn to love yourself, even when you aren't at your best, and realize you can improve. Never stop loving you and always put yourself in the way of happiness. I know it's easy to read this and think yeah it's easy to read, but harder to live out but trust me, make little changes for YOU and you'll see the difference.
There are so many people ready to see you fail and put you down, but always remember that people throw rocks at things that shine. Let it go in one ear and out the other. Replace their negative words with positive words in your head.
I hope that IAP is a place where you can not only get your daily dose of all things fashion, beauty, and lifestyle, but also a place where you feel inspired. Hope you all have an amazing week and cannot wait for all the posts to come. Thank you to my dedicated readers who have always loved and supported me and IAP! XO
