“You will know how far you can go, when you pursue your passion and never stop trying.”
― Lailah Gifty Akita
Waking up this Monday morning was very exciting. It will officially be my last Monday dragging out of bed at 6:00AM. Typically my Monday’s are very hectic. Once I am out of bed I would hurry to get ready before waking my son around 6:30AM. I would get him dressed, make us breakfast, and then we rush out of the house by 7:30AM. I would drop him off at school and head to work afterwards. And now repeat this scenario five (5) times.
Sounds pretty busy, doesn’t it? Well, it is…was.
Most of you probably don’t know but I’ve been working full-time time aside from What Would V Wear, being a mother and wife. I’ve had a corporate job for the last 5 years and ever since I started my blog 1 ½ years ago my life became even busier.
I would work all day (9-5) using my lunch breaks to shoot outfit posts, then pick up my son from school, come home, have dinner, and then edit pictures. It was literally the same routine, Monday through Friday. My weekends are typically more fun and more family oriented, but I will have one or two photo shoots as well. Luckily my outfit shoots don’t take too long. I would seriously dread photo shoots if they took more than 2 hours since my weekends are my sacred family time.
The balancing act of three jobs (I am including my jewelry business) and motherhood finally hit a point where I had to make a decision: Which way do I want to go?
I decided to take the entrepreneurial route. I left my full-time corporate job to pursue my career in blogging and jewelry making.
So, what does this mean for What Would V Wear?
1. It means more exciting content! I am planning to blog four times a week. You can expect a new blog post every Mo, Tue, Wed and Fr.
2. I am expanding my handmade jewelry business with a new collection coming out in February!
3. Delivering new ideas from motherhood, home interior, etc. Stay tuned!
Are you excited? I certainly am! I’m over the moon to celebrate this new chapter in my life with you all today, and I’m so grateful for all of you! You gave me the courage to take a leap of faith to pursue my dream! Words cannot express how grateful I am for all of you. Thank you for your support, and please know that I will always support you as well.
And as a celebration my family and I are heading to Paris and Germany! Be sure follow along on Instagram and Snapchat (@WhatWouldVWear)!
PS: Beyond humbled and grateful to be featured in People Magazine’s current Stye Watch Magazine Issue. 2016 couldn’t have started any better. This is certainly the best surprise as I am starting my full-time blogging career.
As always, thanks so much for reading and thank you again for your support!
Much love, always.
