Hello to all of my loyal readers and I am so happy to be back! I know it has been a while, but know that my absence has not only been necessary, but very intentional. I had a wonderful conversation with a friend some time ago whose opinion that I hold in full regard. We spoke about some of my goals and dreams that I had not only with my blog, but with me as a brand. She pointed out so many things that really got me to thinking, and at that moment, I realized that I had to start over. Not just scrap what I had been doing with my last blog, but get a little more creative in my thought process and deliberate in my approach, thinking about what I want to resonate with my readers. It’s easy to become so consumed with the day to day of life around us such as our finances, employers, family members, spouses, and friends, that we forget to focus on the things that make us happyJ Not that we don’t love the aforementioned things or that they lack fulfillment or purpose, but I want to challenge all of us to step out of what we know (or think we know) as life. For me, I know that if I had not tried something new, I would not have found that one of my strongest passion lies within seeing things or people transform, hence my love for makeup and home makeovers! I then realized that I want this blog to not only entertain, but educate, serve a purpose, empower, awaken, and motivate my readers to seek and follow what they define as passion. I want my brand to encourage people to exercise their creative voice.
I feel like I am finally in a place where what I want to blog about what will make sense, and provide well rounded topics of discussion that appeal to the masses. While this blog will focus on the things that I love such as pocket-friendly DIY home décor, crafty design projects, and beauty… we will also discuss new recipes, traveling, health & fitness, and all the “stuff” in between. Yep, that’s what I want this blog to be…an escape away from the “norm”… something fresh and new, all on a budget of course. Hey, who says penny living can’t be an eclectic mix of creative, educational, fun and exciting? Not this girl.
