Happy New Year everyone! Before I get started on all the things that I have accomplished this year, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your continued support. If I thought 2018 was a fab year for me well I can say that 2019 has surpassed that. Not only has it been an eventful year for my blogging and instagramming, but also in my personal life too. I got to work with my so many new and amazing brands, to whom I am very grateful for wanting to work with me.
So lets begin to recap 2019, I can’t believe how fast the year went by. Lets begin with what happened in my personal life, first off we decided to move to Dubai. This was a big step as you can imagine, I hate moving, the whole process is one that I don’t enjoy, I am sure most of you can relate. We moved in August, the hottest time of the year over here in the UAE. I was naive to think we would get settled within a month, it has taken us four months from start to finish and I can safely say we are just about settled. My eldest turned thirteen in September, I really can’t believe he is a teenager now, tall like his father and easily mistaken for being a sixteen year old! The boys have been really good and although missing their friends have settled in nicely.
Now for the work front, I have had the pleasure of collaborating and attending some fabulous events this year. I am Currently working on a few more and can’t wait to share them with you all. May I say it’s always a pleasure to read all of your wonderful comments. I also enjoy reading your blogs and get inspired by you all and take away something from each one of you.
What I have learnt in the last year is that I need to stop trying to make everything perfect, specially things I don’t have control over. So with that in mind I have been a little more relaxed this year with my blogging, I guess as time goes on I have found a rythm that works for me. The main reason I started this blog in the first place is to do what I love and enjoy doing and if in turn this inspires a few of you along the way on styling outfits then that is absolutely awesome. My main focus for 2020 is to travel a little bit more with my family, keep improving on my pictures and content for my blog and Instagram. Stay healthy and keep enjoying life to the fullest.
Moving onto self care, which is very important and as time has gone on I have learnt to listen to my body. Previously I have ignored that and tried to continue doing the same things without taking some time out for myself. I am not getting any younger and that can take a toll on my body. It is not always that easy being a mom of three boys and blogging, which can prove to be difficult at times. Specially with the endless amount of extra curricular activities the boys have and then trying to fit my blogging around that. Of course I think I can fit everything in, do everything without anything being effected. However I have learnt the hard way that this is not the case. Constantly having to remind myself to take time off to just relax and take a break so that I am not spreading my self too thin. If I can’t take care of myself then I am no good at taking care of anyone else right?!
Right so lets move onto what I would like to achieve in 2020. Firstly I would like to keep on improving my content and pictures for sure, also maybe give the blog a new appearance. I like to do this annually as I personally like the change and it’s something different to what I am used to. Also would love to work with brands I truly admire and those that are to my personal taste. Hopefully I can keep on growing with my blog and Instagram.
So I would like to thank you all again for supporting me and continuing to do so in 2020. Hoping to share with you all my new and exciting endeavours like I mentioned earlier. And of course my ensembles that I shall be styling. No matter how many setbacks I may have come across or will do so in the future I will persevere and continue. I will make sure I pursue in what I want and be patient enough to wait for my efforts to pay off.
Finally before I head off I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best of luck this year. Hope everything you are planning to do comes to fruition. May you all have a productive year, stay safe, healthy and most of all be happy in doing so!
