It's hard to believe how much has happened for me and my *little* blog in the past year. I initially started writing style posts once a week as a creative outlet to express my personal interests (and to write about something other than just LASIK clinics, dentists... a.k.a. my day job). Now if I don't curate at least four posts each week, I feel like a part of me is missing.
This has been quite a journey so far and I'm happy I get to share it with you all. Before I started a style blog I heard people say that it's effortless and easy, but let me tell you, it's NOT. A lot of hard work and time goes into running SummerxSkin whether it's high-quality photos, content, video, photoshoots/editorials, marketing, social media, events, endless e-mails/meetings/interviews or outreach. The scariest part is putting yourself out there in public (with boundaries of course), not knowing if the outcome will be positive or negative.
Regardless, I'm grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way thus far, and for having love and support from my family and friends. It's also helpful when the blogging community, readers, PR and brands are so kind. :)
