1 Year of Fixin to Thrill!

A year ago today my baby, this blog, went live. I was nervous, excited, anxious, worried as to how I would be received and more than anything determined to stick this out and see where it would lead me. Style has always been important to me, I just didn’t realize how important until I started to really think about what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. The same things kept popping up into my head; buyer, stylist, personal shopper, designer…all things fashion. So why was I working in the food and beverage industry?

I thought back to a couple birthday’s prior, I had just gotten the Jeffrey Campbell Brit boot and was obsessed. I met my boyfriend  for breakfast and during the course of our meal 3-4 different girls approached our table and complimented my outfit and/or boots. Jake said to me, “You need to be a personal stylist, ever since high school people have always told you how much they love your style or people constantly ask you where you shop. Get some business cards made and set up a website, when people compliment you let them know you’re a stylist and give them a card”. I didn’t listen then but I should have.

Fast forward to a few years later and BOOM, something inside me snapped, it was now or never. I was fueled with a hunger that hadn’t been there before coupled with a sense of knowing. Knowing that this would be a starting point to figure out exactly what I wanted to do with my life. No pressure right? I started taking pictures of my outfits and posting to Instagram while I tried to figure out the behind the scenes ins and outs of starting a blog. I’m not the most computer savvy person, I’ll be the first to admit it, so this was a process but a really fun and exciting one.

Over the past year this blog has been so much more than I could have ever imagined. This blog has turned into friendships, memories, new opportunities and so much limit testing. It’s helped me grow as a person, a friend, a writer, a creator and an entrepreneur. I’m so happy I started this adventure, even more thrilled that so many people read this blog and anxious to see what comes in this next year of Fixin to Thrill.

So today I thought I’d share some of my favorite looks from the past year:
