1 year of blogging. more to come.

27 January, 2013






CELEBRATION. yep, it's time for that cliche, overrated , outdated and boring type of post, yet so dear to any blogger , so personal and so unique: my 1 year blog anniversary ! 

Yep, I've been a blogger for exactly one year ( remember my very 1st post? HERE IT IS ! ), and what a challenging and vivid experience has that been ! there have been loads of ups and downs, disappointments and fulfillment, but one thing is for sure, I'm here to stay, and this year will bring even more fashion on my blog, and lots of new surprises, I am sure ! 

Of course, you write your blog from passion and dedication to fashion, you write it to create an archive of your style evolution, to practice your writing, to explore the world of fashion, therefore you write it for yourself, but when you see that your voice is listened to by a fair amount of people, you also start writing for your readers, you try to become a better person for them,  to deliver the best of the best content and to inspire them. that's what I also tried doing for the past 12 months and the best reward a blogger can have, is watching their audience become bigger and bigger and even more appreciative with your work. 

It gives me great joy when I look back at my 6 months anniversary post and compare my current statistics with the ones back then. Seems like 40 more followers have joined my world, my blog gained more than 50 000 more views and my blog's Facebook page doubled its subscribers. It might not be impressive for other already successful bloggers, but for me is a great achievement and I can't thank YOU enough for being a part of my life during this whole year. I truly hope to have you around for many more years now. I will surely do my best not to disappoint you !

I couldn't find a better way to celebrate this past year of blogging, than by sharing with you one of my favourite pieces of writing of all times, by the brilliant Charlie Chaplin, a lesson about life, happiness and self-love, great words from a great mind ! This poem is so dear to me as it resonates so powerfully with my personal journey towards self-discovery and it has become my regular shot of optimism. 

Discover it throughout the entire post !

As I Began to Love Myself – Self Love Poem by Charlie Chaplin

" As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering
are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth.
Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.





As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody
As I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time
was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this
person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.



As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life,
and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow.
Today I call it “MATURITY”.


As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance,
I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens
at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm.
Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.


As I began to love myself I quit steeling my own time,
and I stopped designing huge projects for the future.
Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do
and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in
my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.



As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for
my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew
me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude
a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.


As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since
I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.


As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worry
about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where EVERYTHING
is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.



As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me
and it can make me sick. But As I connected it to my heart, my
mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this
connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.
 




We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems
with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing
new worlds are born.Today I know THAT IS “LIFE”! "

love,
S & Charlie
