Thanks for a fab year, 2015

Where do I even begin to describe 2015?

2015 was the year that I met amazing people and made friends I know will be around for a long time.

2015 was the year that I worked my ass off and reached my goals.

2015 was the year that I got a taste of the real world and thrived from it.

I’m back and I did some pretty cool things while I was gone part 1

Firstly, I started writing this on the 2nd of September on my way home from the Little Bourke St Runway, but, like my life right now, I got too busy to finish it and post at a decent, more recent time.

SO, let’s go back a month and pretend like my absence never happened…

2,000 subs?!

JUST HIT 2,000 SUBSCRIBERS ON TFJ

I seriously cannot believe it! Almost two years and in such a short time we’ve come so far!

I know, 2,000 may not seem like a lot, but to someone who didn’t even think that anyone would see this blog, it’s a lot. Not to mention the fact that all I’ve ever wanted was to be able to influence people; to have a platform where I could be completely honest and opinionated, and people would listen. Now I have 2,000 people listening and I’m starting to think that I’m doing something right.

One thing’s for sure though, and it’s that The Fashion Journals has been a pretty solo ride. Everything that you see i’ve put together in hopes that it’s what people want to see, but I don’t want to do that anymore. I want to not only work for myself, but for you. At the end of the day, I can read and re-read the content that I put up but that won’t mean a thing if I’m the only person gaining from this. I want this blog to benefit every reader in the same way that writing it benefits me. I’ve found myself in a world where anything is possible, where the most unlikely of people can create something that can grow to be influential. Let’s be real, for anyone who knew me, you would never have thought that I of all people would be writing a fashion blog, yet here I am, and I’m loving every minute of it. To tell you the truth, since starting TFJ my mind has never stopped working, and it’s exhausting, but I’m so passionate about this that I don’t care, doing this gives me a reason to strive for things, to work hard so that one day I can dedicate myself solely to The Fashion Journals.

In order to do this, I want to encourage you to connect as much as possible. I want to write this for you, so I need you to tell me what you want to see. Is there a piece of clothing that you have an have no idea to style it? Is there an event you want me to cover? Curious about a beauty product? Just ask!

So, finally, I want to thank everyone for your support, without each and every one of you, I probably wouldn’t be so focused on building TFJ to be all that it can be. This site wouldn’t have the life and atmosphere that it does if it weren’t for you, so thank you.

The Fashion Journals at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week!

Screen shot 2014-08-13 at 7.38.55 PM

September 3rd will be the night!

I will be seeing amazing designers and brands like Manning Cartel, LIFEwithBIRD, Khalo, Carly Hunter, Alice Mccall, Lui Hon, YB J’AMIE, Neo Dia, and finally, Willow.

Expect a lot of photos and a lot of excitement, because this will undoubtedly be the highlight of my life in the next few incredibly busy weeks!!!

A quick side note: I know my feed is becoming slower day by day, but my final year of VCE is demanding my full attention, but I will always try to post where possible!
