I read a quote recently, “Talking to an old friend makes you realize how much your life has changed.” This quote really resonates with me as I make this blog post after weeks, more like months I guess, since my posts have become scarce. My life has changed to much since the last time I really made a post with my heart in it. I live in Japan, learning a new language, eating amazing food and I’m happy. For the first time in a long time I don’t know what to expect each day, and it doesn’t scare me, it’s exciting.
I started this blog a few years ago when I wasn’t in a good place in my life. I was feeling quite depressed and lonely. A lot had happened and it felt like things were falling apart. I needed a way to connect to people and bring some fun and happiness back into my life, so I started a fashion blog. I know that sounds stupid, some of you who are reading this are probably like “A fashion blog?? Why not join a club.” Something about putting thought into outfits and dressing up to create a persona to go with it was refreshing for me, like being something I wasn’t anymore. A strong, confident woman. And something I was hoping to become again. And I feel like when people say “fake it till you make it” really works when you want to feel good about yourself.
I’m not the same, sad girl that started this blog anymore. and I don’t feel satisfied posting photos of my outfits and leaving links to what I’m wearing. I still love fashion and this blog has given me opportunities that I didn’t even know could was possible. It means a lot that you all took time to read it.
I realize this sounds like a goodbye, but it’s not! I just need to change up things, perhaps talk to you guys more in the posts. I feel like youtube is definitely what I enjoy the most now, and I’m with an awesome network and have made so many great friends because of it. But youtube wouldn’t have been a possibility without this blog, so I don’t want friday night style to become an oversight. So I want this to become more than a fashion (I will still post outfits). I don’t know exactly what I’m going to do but I hope you guys can look forward to it with me! Nice talking to y’all again!!
