Bringing in the New Year for most, I think means a fresh start, something new to look forward to, and most importantly change. The belief that anything is possible is most prevalent during the holidays. I’m not one for resolutions, but I do set an intention to be better than what I was the year before.
During the 11 years I’ve been blogging, I’ve had the privilege of connecting with the most wonderful people and this year I plan to continue that trend. It’s not easy to let people into our inner circle, it seems the older we get the less interested we are in building community. I’m not talking for all people, just the introverts!
Writing and blogging is my way of connecting to reach others outside my area. Let’s face it, where we live isn’t always filled with the people who share the same ideas. You may be liberal but reside in a red state where conservatives rule the land, it’s hard to build friendships when your conversation is limited. By reaching out online sharing things I love, I’m able to meet people who share the same hobbies. For me it’s books, health, family, food and fashion. I share book reviews than anything, but it’s fun to mix it up with some other favorites as well.
As you know everything I read is chosen and paid for by me. I do not receive products to endorse and share honest opinions and thoughts on the items that I like. I mention this because it’s hard to read reviews these days when the reviewer has been paid for the review. There’s nothing wrong with influencers, as long as their sharing their honest thoughts and as you know when you’re paid to do something the payment tends to sway your impression.
Over the past two years, I’ve been collecting the products like clothes, skincare, health trends, home goods and recipes to share with you. I’m happy to finally reveal the shop as it’s brought blood, sweat and tears to bring to life. For an introvert, it’s not easy to share my work but it’s been a wonderful way to share my favorite goods with you in hopes we can connect and begin to share your picks too! This is a way for all of us to share what we love and come together as a community of women!
Everything that I’ve picked has been specifically chosen to ensure it meets certain standards.
- All Skincare is organic
- Clothes are made sustainably, with most being made in the USA.
- Jewelry is crafted by artists and most are one of kind pieces made from crystals, precious metals and organic threads.
I can’t wait to connect with you!
