Blogger Life

img_5558 img_5541 img_5576 img_5554 img_5539In the midst of expanding my blogging career as well as a career outside of blogging, I’m juggling many other things like:

1.)Being a wife. Although rewarding and beautiful, it’s not an easy task.

2.)Being a fur mama. (Just kidding, this one is the best responsibility filled with kisses and games of fetch.)

3.) Living in New York. They weren’t kidding when they said you have HUSTLE. I’ve taken on many miscellaneous sides jobs and participated in many money making apps just to pay the rent. New York is not for the weak.

4.)Struggling with my mental illness. (Ew, I’m not the biggest fan of the word “illness” but however you would like to phrase it, depression and anxiety is a pain.) I’ve been in between medications amongst other health related set backs that have really taken a toll on my happiness as well as my overall experience in New York. Everyday is a struggle, whether it’s getting out of bed, fighting back tears, or just learning how to breathe. Because of this I know I’m one tough cookie.

5.)Socializing. You would be surprised how hard it is to make friends in such a big city. It would be much easier if I had a specific job where I was surrounded by like-minded people my age but, unfortunately, that’s not the case for me. I JUST WANT MORE FRIENDS. Friends are everything and you can never have too many.

6.)Being so far away from home. I’ve done really well so far when it comes to being overwhelmed from missing my family back home. I have moments where I spend hours looking at old pictures of my nieces and nephews. I’ll replay videos of them over and over again just find some peace in this crazy ridiculous city of mine. I’ve made sure to call my mom AT LEAST once a day. I don’t even know what we talk about anymore but we love to hear each others voices. Living in NYC would be so much easier if I had my family here. The sacrifices we make to achieve our dreams and tackle our bucket lists.

Blogging is my safe place. My peace of mind lies behind this keyboard where I connect with the world with one touch of a button. My love for Fashion Blogging is within in the process: The photo-shoots, the editing, the writing, the networking. Every bit of it makes my heart happy. Regardless on the number of likes or the amount of views…This blog is has been one of the best things to have happened to me.

I love it and I love you.

Remember that.
