So if my records are correct, this week marks one year of The Kayleigh Khronicles!
Bring out the champagne and cupcakes, put on your favourite LBD, wear your fav Mac lipstick and most definitely take lots of selfies – it’s a celebration over here.
Happy Anniversary to me and of course to you – the lovely readers (hopefully you’re out there).
When I started this blog I remember feeling so apprehensive and extremely reluctant; the thought of having to post my thoughts and views publicly for anyone and everyone to see was very overwhelming. See my first post “Blogging Newbie” for more on that. However week after week, and month after month I stopped having to tell myself to blog and I started looking forward to it. Having a space all to myself to do with, well, whatever I want to, is really so freeing. I’m such a specific person with how I like my things. When it comes to food, clothes, decor, work ethic, goals and just about anything else in life, my views seem to differ drastically from others. My family puts it down to me being ‘funny’ but I say it’s my inability to give into reality. If anything blogging has showed me that I seem to have something to say about everything. Some weeks I can’t even decide what to post about as I have so much to say on a variety of topics!
Looking back to this time last year I can’t help but be amazed at how different my life was then. I was in a different head space and I had different goals and ideas about where the year would take me. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this but I’m actually kinda proud of myself. Amongst working, studying, travelling, being a world record procrastinator and an all around lazy gal (I blame college), I was able to keep up this blog as well. Sometimes it was a little discouraging as I would post something I was really proud of and couldn’t wait for people to read, only to hear no responses for days. Other times it was comforting. I would post a piece half heartedly, not really believing what I was saying and not really feeling too impressed with it, and I would be overwhelmed with interested viewers and positive feedback.
Before I get too deep and too dull, let me cut to the chase. This week there will be no nod of approval in the direction of custom couture and no disapproving remarks at fashion fails. Instead I wanted to take a minute to say thank you and send you infinitive amounts of online love for scrolling my page; whether it be religiously or erratically or even once off! It’s still appreciated by me. Kayleigh Khronicles is a journey for me, a journey that is still ever changing and growing – but it’s gonna be flipping cool when it’s there 😀 The Met Gala is around the corner so I will no doubt have plenty to say about that. Don’t stress, I won’t make a habit of these posts. It’s back to business next week for #TheKK. < tweet me. Are there any readers who have been following since day 1? What are your thoughts about my blog over the months? Let me know, I love getting feedback from you guys.
Cheers to dressing with class, cheers to having your own unique sense of style, cheers to lots of perfume. Lots and lots of perfume. Cheers to denim mishaps and multicolored bikini’s. Cheers to splurging on yourself, cheers to platform sneakers and 80s fashion, cheers to IT GIRLS and their lifestyles we will always admire; and most importantly – cheers to you guys!
