Thunderstorm Thoughts

Wednesday, July 2, 2014


Take this moment to appreciate the beauty of San Juan as I share some personal thoughts. Spending the last month interning in a truly corporate environment has, ironically, spurred my creative mind more than ever. Over lunch breaks, I find myself browsing blogs that I admire, and simultaneously finding new ones. I consider a blog admirable when it has an original voice and style. Bloggers like Olivia LopezBianca & Dani, and Lily Melrose know exactly who they are and how to portray themselves. I want to be able to do the same.

SO, what I'm getting at with this semi-rant is that I want will start taking my blog into a new creative direction. I can assure you that this change won't be drastic, but I want it to feel more like myself. I have a tendency to compare myself to those who are successful, but I've realized that such success comes from genuine individuality. I'm finally proud of what I've done with my Instagram, and I want to translate that feeling into this blog. Starting now, I'm going to approach this with my true personal style, regardless of whether that is "on trend" or not. Whatever that becomes, I hope you enjoy it!

On a more cheery note, I wish you a fantastic July 4th weekend! I hope this post can inspire you to embrace your own unique point of view in some way. Talk to you soon!

  1. I definitely agree with you! It's much more better to post what you love on a personal level then what you feel is "in" right now. More power to you girl! I look forward to your posts! :)

    love always,

  5. I love this post! Good luck with figuring everything out! It seems like the more successful someone gets, the more they start resembling everyone else, but it's refreshing to see someone straying away from that! Good luck!
