2017 really didn’t start off the way I head hoped. Things in my personal life weren’t going as planned; my anxiety was at an all time high, I lost one of my best friends, and I was feeling a lot less passionate about my blog to name a few things. I was stuck in a rut and felt I couldn’t get out.
While I continued daily blogging, my heart wasn’t really in it. I also closed myself off socially for months. I was craving a new routine but I didn’t know exactly what I wanted that to entail. In the spring, for whatever reason, I realized I had to do something to snap out of it or things would only get worse. I decided to re-brand my blog for starters and everything else just started falling into place. I found myself excited to blog again, I ended up reconnecting with my friend I thought I had lost, one of my best friends from high school who I hadn’t talked to in years moved home and we picked up right where we left off, and while my anxiety was still popping up, I was using exercise to better manage it.
While I still love all things beauty and it will still be a big part of the new blog; I also want to talk about other things that interest me. I want to be able to discuss lifestyle topics that are important to me. Be able to talk about health, share recipes, and post fashion inspiration as well as discuss beauty without the content feeling out of place. I’m really excited about the content I have planned for the upcoming months. I’m hoping that you will enjoy it just as much, if not more!
Lipstick & Confetti will always hold a special place in my heart and I’m beyond thankful for it. I learned so much with my first blog and it allowed me to connect with so many people around the world. It gave me lots of opportunities; however, I just felt like I outgrew the blog and it was becoming strictly beauty reviews. That being said, I wanted a fresh start where I could do more which is where this blog comes in.
I still plan to blog daily. There will also be days where I post more than once. If I post a beauty review, I plan to also blog about something else that day too. I’m not going to be as strict about my posting schedule; but you can still expect at least one new post per day. I also plan to revive my YouTube channel. I haven’t made a video since the spring but want to start posting weekly again as it is something I have missed doing. As of right now I’m planning to upload on Sunday mornings at 9; so definitely check back for that too!
I hope that you will continue to follow me in my blogging journey and enjoy my new little corner of the internet. This blog is the start of something new and I’m excited to see where it will take me.
