My first blog post! I think this would count as a pretty good excuse to treat myself to some Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, don’t you?
I have been a frequent visitor of fashion blogs, namely this one, since I was in middle school. I’ve always written down things here and there, but what better way to keep track of it all than on a blog? I enjoy doing this for myself, and hope others can get something from it as well!
I am currently abroad in England, using this time to complete my junior year of college. This is my second term here, at the University of York. Doing an entire year abroad is often unheard of and I was pretty hesitant of the amount of time at first. However, if all I had was last term I would have been left wanting more. This first semester was just like being a freshman all over again – shaky and wobbly like a little baby the first few weeks. I’ve never asked so many questions and been lost so many times than in that first term! The first few months only set me up to fully embrace and tackle this next part of the school year head on.
I have a deep love of fashion (one may call it an obsession…) and being surrounded by the culture here has been incredibly exciting in terms of exploring my own style. I have 100% experienced a rapid increase in my independence and coming to terms with being comfortable in a brand new area. I’m no stranger to change, having hauled my life across the country to the East Coast for the first two years of my college life. That in itself was an incredible change and shock, so naturally I have to venture even further, right? Well, that was apart of the initial thought process at least… Life is supposed to start at the end of your comfort zone!
I’m SO looking forward to see where this writing adventure takes me. Writing has always been a release for me and I can’t wait to get going on this blog 🙂
