Hello and welcome!
Lately, I have had the urge to share my story with readers. Maybe it’s because I have been paving a new path for myself in life and feel very inspired during this time. But, I also feel as if I haven’t truly shared my story with you. Sure, I’ve shared bits and pieces of what’s going on in my life through Instagram and other social media platforms, but I’ve never openly and honestly told my story on my blog. So, I figured what better time than now? A little disclaimer, I am still working on the whole openness part of this so bear with me. One day, I will be brave and learn to share all the juicy details.
Some of you have followed me on my journey from the beginning and some are just recently joining me, therefore I am just going to sum up my story and how it has led me to be here today writing this post. All through college I aspired to be some big shot in the fashion industry. There were many long nights spent in the studio sketching and sewing all sorts of designs. This is where blogging kind of started for me. I began sharing my outfits and writing about the ever-changing trends. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m that girl who has had multiple domain names: most recent being Planted On The Mat (insert eye roll). Anyway, upon graduation, fashion brought me to New York City for an internship and eventually a career. Once I moved here for the internship, NYC captured me and I have yet to find anywhere cooler to live (except maybe a remote island). As time went on living in the city, building new relationships, and working in the fashion industry, I began to struggle with severe anxiety. This is when I discovered the practice of yoga.
