As I sat here staring at my my computer I encountered writers block. My friend asked what is this post suppose to be about and I said “my 3rd Blogaversary and I can’t think of what I’ve accomplished”. She said girl a lot, “The JD Brunch Series, you did the Glitz Mix, and this and that”. It’s funny that you don’t always realize how much you’ve accomplished and how far you’ve come. We all need that reminder every now and then. I’m thankful for the family and friends who acknowledge hard work and have no problem reminding you.
But 3 years has really flown by and when I look back I have accomplished several blogger goals. I wanted to:
- Be more consistent with posting. When I tell ya’ll it’s a struggle. Most people don’t know all the work it takes to get that pretty little picture. Plus I’m juggling a 9-5, event planning business, brand management business, etc. But I love what I do, I love blogging, I love fashion, I love inspiring confidence. So if I can put all that time into someone else’s business I for damn sure can put it into my brand and business.
I also wanted to….
- Have at least one fashion related event per year. I’ve been really consistent with my JD Brunch Series for influencers, Jessica(Justini Cocktails) and I made The Glitz Mix an annual Soiree and I have created a new Creatives Link Up Series so I am keeping myself very busy.
- Start taking better care of my hair and trying new styles. I made an effort! I attended the What’s Your Type? Natural Hair Affair, I’ve been trying twist-outs, and found a better wash-n-go routine.
Now there is one goal I haven’t mastered and that’s make-up but luckily I have my good sis Ri Make Faces for that!
Now I’m definitely not finished learning and growing but I think I’m on the right path. I’ve met so many girls bosses doing their thing and it’s so inspiring. I’ve been putting in work and it can only get better from here. I just be needing a “Temperature Check” as my Soror Isaka would say every now in then to realize what I have accomplished and to pat myself on the back.
I also want to give a big shoutout to my family because they come through for me time after time. Here I am thinking that’s just what families do but not everyone has that support. I am truly blessed and when I get “on on” I’ll make it rain on them like the photo above!
P.S. my photographer Britt did the damn thing with this shoot! See more photos below!
