Life has been busy as of late. This could be the part where I complain about the lack of sleep, constant stream of stress, and suddenly reverting back to a teenager with all these damn pimples- but, it's not. It's the part where I say Happy Anniversary Little Black Boots! And even with all the above mentioned, the past year has been full of growths and strides for me both personally and professionally.
In October of 2015 I decided to trade in my full-time job for full-time blogging. It was very fitting (and definitely not planned) that this also is the month when I launched Little Black Boots back in 2012. My move from part-time to full-time felt very right at the time and I am happy to say I never once looked back. Blogging as my profession? Crazy. If you told me back when I was sitting in class at SDSU that this is what I would be doing, I would have absolutely given you some serious side-eye...and also probably skipped all those 9am classes.
When I started in 2012 it was purely a creative outlet. I loved the idea of being a part of a community of like-minded people who enjoyed sharing their thoughts/opinions/outlook of the fashion world. Just normal, every day people with a new platform to get across their ideas. Sign me up!
In 2013 I moved to LA from Orange County to start a new chapter and it was also when I really put in an effort towards Little Black Boots. It has been quite the windy, unpredictable journey since. I found my footing, many MANY stumbles later.
With that said, I don't have it all figured out. I am still learning and finding my way every single day. Thinking you're done trying to improve yourself is fatal after all.
I could literally go on for days. Reflection has that effect on people. But I will end this with a huge thank you for following along my journey. Especially to those who have been with me from day one. I can never say thank you enough. I really do have the most loving, supportive internet friends a girl could ask for.
