Blog Announcement

It's been a while since I wrote personal posts (or have I ever?!) but I feel the need to share this time so I hope you bare with me.
I started this blog a little over 2 years ago as an inspirational platform for others to find their style (whether it's on a budget or not), inspire them through my advice or photography (yes, those crappy photos of nature were meant to be inspirational!:)) and motivate them in one way or another. But with time (and it happened so quickly!) I got caught in the fashion blogging race and switched solely to personal style posts, lost my original blog direction and concentrated entirely on style posts. It did become my full time job eventually (which I am so grateful for!), but I don't find myself entirely fulfilled with it. 
That's where the big announcement comes in place! I do love fashion (it's one of my biggest passions!) and it is a fashion blog after all, but I am so grateful for all your support that I feel like I am cheating on you guys as I could be providing so much more value in your lives than pretty pictures and latest shopping deals. I decided to take a lifestyle direction of my blog, where I'll be sharing with you tips and tricks on self-development, try to motivate you, share my favorite beauty products, books, movie and recipes and so much more. You'll be able to get to know the real me, and hopefully my blog will provide you with what it was originally meant for. I will make mistakes, as I made them before, but this is the nature of blogging and truthfully, the nature of life. I hope you'll forgive me for my past and future mistakes and keep supporting me the way you did before and let me repay you with an inspirational outlet which will hopefully brighten your days even for a minute of it! Don't worry, the blog will remain heavily fashion based and the introduction of lifestyle posts will happen gradually. I hope you'll stay on this journey with me as always I am eternally grateful for all your support!

    2. You clearly don't read fashion blogs! There is not one blogger that doesn't use photoshop. Give her a break

    3. of course there are plenty bloggers that don't use photoshop, who are you kidding? what is it with this cult of fakeness that has nothing to do with the fashion world, anyways? how can anyone endorse it and then talk about self-development and beauty advice with a straight face? i can see it now: first piece of advice: buy alien skin plugin for photoshop elements!

      and how old are you anyway, diana, 23? i just don't want to imagine what you will be doing when you're 40 if you're faking your skin to look like a doll right now! but hey, at least you're getting one honest opinion, instead of a link to some other blog hidden behind an empty compliment ;)

    4. I do appreciate your honest opinion. You clearly show lots of grief towards the blogging world, so I am sorry you blog didn't work out. But just because you hate the industry you don't have to take it out on one of millions, who represent it. You can just move on in your life and stop reading something that brings you so much pain. And also...it's very easy to talk when you don't have a face (and use Anonymous comments), next time use your profile! I know you have one ;) Or maybe it was just therapeutic for you to be anonymous and take it all out on someone, in that case you are welcome because you were listened to!

  6. Hi Diana ;)
    I feel like you and I go way back.
    And because of that, I know and remember (and miss) those posts in the beginning that capture nature and my favorite, food!!
    Love those food shots :)
    I know that with your dedication, this blog will continue to evolve in a great way and you will shine in even more ways.
    I can't wait to see what you've got in store.
    I'm sure it will be fabulous. <3
    Xoxo,
    Martha

    1. Hey Martha. We do go way back. I feel like I've known you for a while (even though it's only virtually). Thank you so much for your comment. It really means a lot coming from you! All the best to you and your beautiful family, xx

  7. Good for you, Diana! Personally, I agree that posting just outfits is not enough. There are so many wonderful things going on that I do not want to miss. That is why I write on my blog not only about look, but also readings, restaurants and cooking, beauty events and reviews, and many more.

    I wish you to have a great success with your new, re-branded blog! Good luck!

  13. That sounds amazing, love the new direction can't wait to hear more about it. mywhiteT.com

  14. Of course we will continue reading: I also talk about other things I'm interested on in my blog. I think that we all put a part of ourselves on our blogger besides our fashion sense, style or way to understand this industry.
    Hope you have an awesome success in this new step.

    Btw, I'm doing my master thesis about bloggers in fashion and their impact on brands. Would you mind if I send you an interview?? It would be so helpful!

  21. Good for you finding a new direction and being true to yourself. Forget the hateful posts-I really don't understand why grumpy people come to blogs in an attempt to spread their misery.

  23. За это время проделана огромная работа, которая знакомит и раскрывает с помощью фотографий и новых событий, записей и мультимедиа, наиболее яркие и интересные моменты жизни, показывает авторский стиль и стремление двигаться вперед! Это "живой журнал" c помощью которого идет коммуникативное общение и публичная полемика в комментариях, это стиль жизни, в который вложена душа и гармония! Желаю реализовать все свои мечты и получать удовольствие от работы!
