I can’t believe that I’ve been blogging for all of 5 years now (as of September 20th). It’s absurd to me that I started this website back in my sophomore year of high school, and I am now a junior in college. So much has changed, and I have grown a lot over that time.
This site actually started out as a fashion and beauty blog, and after a few months, it slowly morphed into more lifestyle, self-help, and book blogging (which is where I sort of still am now).
From name changes, to new themes, and a couple of hiatuses, this blog has been through a lot, and I think each change reflects a different stage of my life. It’s fun to look back on all of my posts and the memories they bring me. I still remember my first few collaborations, and the friends I made way back when.
So, I wanted to say thank you to all of you who have brought me so much joy and made this place full of so much positivity for me! You are all the reason that I stuck around, even when I thought that I had fallen out of love for reading at times.
To give back to all of you, I want to give some shoutouts!
I want to highlight a few bloggers who are friends of mine, who I admire, or who are an overall huge part of this world for me! Check them out if you haven’t already :)
