My New Years Eve Note To You
When I first started by blog in 2015, I spent a lot of time at home concepting ways to make Style by the People stand out in a sea of other blogs. I planned long photo shoots and drove around LA searching for backdrops, changing in the passenger seat of my car. I emailed endless brands I wanted to partner with for shoots and collaborations. It was tough, but I put in the work because I knew this was what I wanted to do.
Today, as I look back at those not-so-glamorous moments, I can’t help but smile because I know they’re what got me where I am now. Today, while I am still no where close to where I want to be and am always growing and changing, Style by the People is everything I could’ve hoped for. And although things have changed, my commitment to making my blog a place that inspires all of you is stronger than ever.
This past year was my best yet!
I planned a wedding, got married to my soul mate, honeymooned in Africa, got a dog, and had the opportunity to do some incredible things for work (my #1 highlight? A helicopter ride from Palm Springs to LA). I partnered with brands I once dreamed of working with, made memories with women I’ve always admired, and connected with so many of my followers. I pinch myself every day because I feel so lucky to be doing something I am so passionate about.
For me, the new year has always been a time to reflect on the past, present, and future. And 2019 is looking pretty good thus far. Matt and I have some exciting upcoming travel plans and I have some really cool collaborations in the works. I’m excited to keep creating content that I’m proud of. Also, I’m looking forward to building an even stronger community with all of you.
Thank you for your support, love, encouragement, and for following along my adventures. If there’s anything specific you’d like to see more of in 2019, make sure to share it me.
Here’s to an amazing 2019 to all of you and your loved ones.
