7 Jan 2017

So we’ve just warmly and officially welcomed the New Year and everything is already speeding by like a flash of lightning.
Here’s just a quick hello and a short note from me to share about what I have in store for the coming year.

Every single day since 01.01.17 has been a freaking mad rush. I’ve been working around the clock to meet deadlines, plan my content calendar and work on a dozen over various small projects concurrently. It has been (and still is) very hectic and hard to slow down.

I guess we will just keep going from here.

There are so many things in the pipeline that are worth getting excited about!

First and foremost, THE WEDDING!
James & I will be officially MARRIED this year and we can hardly wait. As we venture through all the preparations and planning, I’ll be documenting as much of it as possible here and via videos on my youtube channel.
There is also going to be a separate “”Wedding” category on my blog where you’ll get first hand insights into what we’re up to lately as it will be a personal space for me to share with you guys my inspirations, talk about wedding ideas and discuss everything wedding related.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to be a bridezilla but I really want to make the most out of the entire journey as I’m sure it’s going to be one helluva ride! I really hope that you’ll be a part of it, from wherever you are.

In addition to wedding, I will also be creating significant amounts of content, on topics relating to interiors & styling, fitness, food & recipes. James and I just got a house and we are so eager to move into a place we can call our own. For now, it already seems like this entire “house thing” is going to be a MASSIVE project on its own.
If you’re at a similar life stage as we are, I’m positive that you’ll some good tips and tricks and hopefully worthy inspo here. We’ve not collected the keys yet, but we will in the next couple of months, so hang on tight for more updates!

And.. in other news: A new blog template is on its way! YAY. I’ve been working really hard with my team over the past month and a half to revamp this space and I am so thrilled to unveil it.

Here’s a little hint about what you can anticipate: My business (and life at large) is going to be greatly centred around (1) GROWTH and (2) CONTRIBUTION. (1) Growth in my own personal capacity: to develop myself, my mind and this very personal and yet public space. My blog has always been a huge part of my life and ultimately it is a space where I turn to as my style diary, travel adventure documentation and daily musings. That part of it will never change.
(2) Contribution in terms of looking for ways to integrate my business into something that can help others. I want to continuously inspire, influence, bring value to and share inspirations with. In addition to travel, style and beauty content, I promise you’ll definitely see a lot of thought posts from me- talking about some of my beliefs and values, my personal and career goals and even some contemplations about life and of the world.

Lastly, while my fashion label runafter is going on a mini hiatus until I find some time to fully dedicate my time to it, my first little start up, LADYMOJO, is undergoing a really cool makeover! I’ll reveal my plans for LADYMOJO in due course but I just thought it’d be nice to give you guys a heads up!

Onward 2017! I’m ready for you!
Keep close. x

Love,
Mel
