I know, I know…a June monthly update on the 20th of July? Who am I kidding? I have been gone for a little while, at the expense of my blog but my time away was well worth it. Work required so much more of my time and I just needed a few days away to refocus and reorganize certain areas of my life.I mean it’s only been two weeks but in the blogosphere, that is equivalent to two months. I spent tons and tons of quality time with my family and friends as well – weddings, barbecues, fun summery activities. We do not get to do this often so when we come together it’s always the best time.

I’m however back with my second monthly update. Read the first one here.
Can you believe we’re actually half way into 2017? It’s ridiculous how fast this year has flown by. The phrase “make the best use of every minute because time absolutely waits for no one” means a lot more to me now.

 

THINGS I’M GRATEFUL FOR

This past month I’m most thankful for my family and friends. Over the years, I have learned to surround myself only with people who have the best intentions towards me and who can add something of value to my life, as I try to do same. The result of this is having to let go of many relationships and friendships, as difficult as that might have been at the time. I now have a really tight group around me and it is probably the best thing I ever did for myself. I’m very thankful to have people in my life to love, to trust, to laugh and cry with. Adulating ain’t a joke people. It’s hard so having a strong support system around you to do it with is the single most important thing.

Lots of breakthroughs and new jobs in my family as well so I can’t complain.

Thankful that through it all, I’ve come to a place where i’m just really content with where and with who I am, not because everything is perfect, but because I chose to be happy.

We also hit 4000 followers on Instagram. Yay!!!!! Thank you guys for taking an interest in what i’m trying to carve out here. I do not take it for granted.

BLOG UPDATE

I mentioned in my last monthly update I will be posting 2 blog posts a week, or at the very least, try to do so. That is no longer possible because like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, my job requires a lot of my time at the moment. With that said, I will be posting 1 blog post a week, until I can free up some more time or have a better system in place. I will however be posting on Instagram daily so follow me if you haven’t already.You guys have no idea how much time goes into putting out a blog post. Maybe some day i’ll take you through the process. Let me know if that is a post you are interested in seeing, or any other thing fashion related you want me to talk about or write a blog post on.
