It’s been a year of blogging for me, and I just wanted to take a (long) moment and reflect back on this time. If you’ve been following along from the beginning, you already know that I started this blog as a creative outlet for myself and as an artistic writing portfolio on fashion, beauty and lifestyle. The truth is, it wasn’t my dream to become a blogger because I didn’t even know much about blogs a couple years back. I’d always wanted a career that was not desk related and involved a lot of creativity. I was in search of that something for so long and worked really hard to find it, and it was so worth the wait.
The Blush Diaries isn’t only a website about the latest trends and all the beautiful things we want in our life, it’s also about being inspired to love yourself, challenge yourself and explore all the things that could make you happy. There have been so many ups and down for me in this journey, and there are days where I feel down and almost ready to give up. Although it’s difficult to chase a dream and pour your heart and soul into it, it has been the most rewarding adventure I’ve ever taken on. Since we’re at the beginning of a new year with a blank slate, I hope you find the courage to go after all the things you dream of, let go of all the negative people and thoughts in your life and don’t ever let anyone make you feel like what you do is less important or meaningless. After all, we have this one life with no do-over so might as well live it in a way that makes us truly happy.
This beautiful necklace (which says yes in arabic) is designed by Vitrine Designs, and is the perfect reminder that anything is possible with love and hard work. This would make a great gift for any of the beauties in your life who need some encouragement and would love to know that you’re behind them and believe in their dreams.
