Yesterday I made a pretty big announcement on Instagram, we did it! Throughout the years, I’ve set various sizes of goals for myself and my brand. The big one for 2016 was to reach 10k Instagram followers by the end of 2016. On December 29th, we reached that goal. Although small, I’m so happy for the support that my readers have given me over the years and for me to feel like there is someone reading on the other side of the screen – when I am writing.

2016 was a year of great brand partnerships, great fashion, and thankfully, better photography. This year I expanded from a predominately fashion-focused blog to a true lifestyle blog adding verticals for food, travel, and my favorite ‘Girl Talk’. Every year I hope to grow as a writer and want to thank you for supporting my journey.
