Hello my beautiful readers!!! I am so excited that my new blog is finally here! I have been working SO hard on it the last few weeks to really make it a space I absolutely love. I also wanted to streamline a lot of elements and make it a bit cleaner and easier for you guys to navigate. I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope you guys love it as much as I do and please let me know what you think in the comments below. I would love to hear from you and always appreciate your feedback and take it to heart because you are just as much apart of this as I am!
As you know, the last few months since January have been a big time of change and transition for me. I left my old company after feeling uninspired and ready for the new things to pursue my other passions and ultimately work on new projects that excite me. I launched my YouTube channel, which is such a new world for me that I am learning every single day. My personal life has been evolving and changing in really amazing ways that are so special to me. And all of this is happening because I wanted it to and I made conscious decisions to go for the things that I want in my life. It’s not always the easy or most comfortable route to make big life changes or walk away from things that have become a big part of your routine and identity. It’s also not easy to walk into things that you want to pursue because you never know if they will work out. But, life is so short, and you guys know because I’ve written a lot about this, that I don’t believe in doing things that don’t make you completely and totally happy, inspired, and stoked on your life. I believe in taking this extremely short and quick time we have here on this earth to live a life that you love doing things that make you happy. I never want to look back and wish I had done this or that. I really believe in just doing it all when you want to do it. YOLO.
I don’t really know where I’m going with this, but this blog relaunch fits right into my current mode of transition, change, and moving forward. Stagnation scares me, and whenever I feel the slightest hint of it, I start scheming up a change. I haven’t always been someone to embrace change and newness. Growing up, I was actually very scared of change and loved stability/predictability. The first time I really embraced change was when I decided to ditch the path I was on to follow my passion. I had become so miserable doing what I was doing that deviating from that course and embracing something different seemed like the only choice I had. So I did, and it all worked out. And that has resolved me to always embrace change, not be afraid to drop things that no longer serve me and walk into things that I believe will, and create my life the way I want it to be.
I will leave you with that before this turns into a rant, but I wanted to share with you that this blog relaunch symbolizes a lot more to me than a new visual aesthetic. It’s a new phase of BLAWNDE that I’ve been itching to move into. This new space is my new home and reflects who I am right now in my life. It’s a place I am re-inspired to come to and share more and more content with you guys and continue to build upon and grow. I hope you will follow me on this journey and continue to be part of it. I love you all so much and appreciate your reading more than you know <3
One last thing! I have a new video up on my channel – part 1 of my full hair routine including how frequently I wash it, which tools and products I use, my hair history, and all that jazz. I have gotten SO many requests for this information, so it’s been a long time coming and I hope it answers all of your questions. Part 2 is going up on Friday so stay tuned for that and make sure to subscribe so you can get notifications when I post a new vid!
I’m heading to Utah this week to one of my favorite resorts in the world with minimal wifi coverage, but I will do my best to update you on all the happenings! Be sure to check Instagram or Snapchat because I will be able to update that much more easily and frequently!
