what's next.

unnamed (5)It's been a while, and the honest answer to why that is, is because I've been struggling to figure out the direction of this blog - and if I even want to continue on with it. Feeling like I can no longer find or even have the voice that gave this blog life, that gave me the creative outlet to share my funny anecdotes, my love of fashion and styling, and just to have a diary of my early twenties in the digital era.

Lifestyle & Fashion blogging is an increasingly overly saturated part of the internet, so what makes my voice unique? What makes my style and my voice one that will stick out over the thousands of other girls who have a love of kimonos and stripes? I've been struggling to decide if this is something I still want to do and if I decide I do want to continue with it, what is the certain thing that makes me unique and interesting? To be frank, I don't know that answer quite yet.

I've been reflecting quite a bit over the last several weeks and months, and I realize that this is a pretty accurate depiction of what my life looks like at the moment: pretty undecided. Do I want to stay in the career I'm in, is it enriching my life or just paying my bills? do I even want to stay in this city or do I want to branch out somewhere new that isn't familiar? Since turning 25 I've hit a bit of a fork in the road, and don't know whether I want to stay on the path of comfort, familiarity and "easy", or go down the road I never take which is risky, unknown and not certain. I always had a picture in my head of what my life would look like when the quarter century number hit, but reality hasn't entirely unfolded the same way my vision assumed it would have; leaving me feeling like there may just be a different path more suited for me that my love of comfort was shielding me from looking into.

When you're 13 and looking up to the adults in your life, they don't tell you this about adulthood; sometimes the decisions that come with the responsibilities is enough to make you want to crawl back into your fort and hibernate for a little while longer. unnamed (1) unnamed (3) unnamed (4) unnamedSide note: this leopard print laptop case may single-handedly become the best purchase of 2015. 4 months in and not much has beaten it - yet.
