So how do you start your very first blog? What do you say first? How to intrigue a reader and make yourself visible in this huge ocean of blogs available today? Do you start slow or do you just jump in and learn to swim as you go? Well I thought about it for a while, and the more I thought, the harder it got to decide. I am not usually an indecisive person, but this was something completely new to me and I have to admit, it scared me a bit (read a lot!). And then I ran into some technical difficulties with my domain…and it seems it was just one thing after another that was preventing me to start, but I decided today was going to be the day.
Let me start off by telling you all why I started a blog. For one I am told I talk too much. So I thought I would put it in writing instead, to give a break to my loved ones. J But it is true that when I get excited finding a great deal, a piece of jewellery, or clothing that is a bit different, my husband (who unfortunately is exposed to way too much girl talk for his own good) does not share that excitement with me. At least not as much as I would like him to. So maybe some of u will get at least a bit as excited as I do. J I actually wanted to do this for myself. I love fashion blogs and I thought I would try and play with one of my own and see what it’s like. I will also share with all of u my fashion finds and if I get to make someone’s shopping trip even a bit easier, help u find save a few dollars or just give you some inspiration for those days when you just can’t pick what to wear, it served its purpose!
I am someone who really loves fashion, clothes, accessories, shoes, shoes, shoes, beauty…and did I say shoes? I will be the first to admit that I do love labels, but just like many people out there, I cannot afford them, or not often. In today’s world the fashion changes so quickly, and we have all been swept into this world of consumerism that we want to have everything we see and we want to have it now. We want to change our look and our clothes as fast as they change in the fashion world. This can become expensive or impossible for us to keep up with, should we buy only the higher end pieces every time. I will try and give you less expensive options and still feel fashionable and trendy. I am a firm believer that money and labels do not give you style. We have seen way too many celebrities or reality TV personalities who prove this point, time and time again.
Now, I could go on and on about me and why I do this, but I do have to stop somewhere. So let this be it for now. I will talk to you soon again.
P.S. I promise…my future posts won’t be as long as this one…at least I promise to do my best and keep them short. J
