this is the END Part III. day three-hundred-sixty-five

thisistheend3


I just keep putting this off.
Because to be honest the year will NEVER end. 
I am really excited to start Slow Your Style but essentially its the same thing with a different name. And a different goal. The goal being to create a community of like minded people who care about what they wear! I don't mean what brand or what style or being hip or cool I mean caring about the impact what you wear makes. On the community, your pocketbook and the world. Because style is more than fashion. Its not here one day and gone the next, it transcends fashion. Its so much cooler than fashion. That is why I needed a name change (plus the year is OVER). 

Everyone keeps congratulating me for the year. And yes it is a significant milestone in my life and I am so grateful for those close to me who care but I congratulate myself for CONTINUING. Some days blogging is so hard. You work forever to make a post and then get no comments! Or no readers! Or lose followers. It can be terribly taxing on your SOUL if you let it. There were a few moments there when I almost gave up. And I am so glad I did not. And I am so glad I totally forgot about those when I decided to continue with Slow Your Style. Because in the end none of that crap matters. 


What matters were the experiences I had doing this blog and the wonderful connections I have made in the blogging and real world. 

Here is a list of the awesome Shit I got to do:

1. TENDEN. I don't think I need to go into detail. Every week contains at least 1 or 2 pieces from my collection. I adore everything he makes and does and we have become friends on top of it :) well maybe becuase I just buy his stuff but regardless I love his style and attitude. Hes a cool dude. My first interview on SYS will be with him. Get amped. I know you are! Well.... I am

I am sure I am missing some awesome shit that happened. But whatever. I can recap for that for you in SYS. Right now I have tons of things on my plate with getting the site ready, getting a design finished, tshirts printed (ohhh get amped!) and just regular life crap as well.

The year has been an amazing experience. I couldn't have done it without all of you. My awesome family, friends and those I don't know so well who somehow stumbled across this little microcosm of a blog. Thank you so much from the deepest part of my heart for following along on my journey. I hope you continue to follow me through my adventures at Slow Your Style!


Peace. Love. Style.
