Holy crap. Tomorrow begins a new decade.
What I Did
2019 was a BIG year of change for me. Both personally and professionally.
Personally, I made a lot of strides in my own life. If it wasn’t obvious around here, I ended a four year relationship that realistically looked so amazing on paper, but something was just missing. And that feels really weird to type out finally. Nothing was wrong at all. But I just wasn’t as happy as I thought I could be. Turns out, I was right. I’m going out more and doing things for myself, which is something I really haven’t done before. While I’m still sad that chapter came to an end, I’m glad I followed my gut and chose to start a new chapter.
Professionally, I work in a position where I learned pretty much the complete opposite of what I did in my previous company. I learned the numbers and business side of the industry, which is something I was really scared of before. I’m glad I took this step in my career. It’s helped me look at the business side of the fashion industry in a different way. Sure, product is VERY important, but numbers don’t lie.
And on the blog front, I worked with some INCREDIBLE brands over the last 12 months. As my business grows, I can’t help but give myself a pat on the back for the hard work I’ve put in to maintain two full time jobs. I mean, I definitely have my manager, Hayden, to thank for this though. Having him as a sounding board and in my corner for all things related to my business has been SUCH a blessing.

What’s To Come in 2020
2020 is going to be another big year for me. I can definitely feel that. I’m excited to what’s to come professionally. I’m excited for what’s to come personally. I think this year I’m going to travel more, I’m going to open up more, and just have a completely different mindset from the past.
As for The Champagne Edit, it’s pretty much going to stay the same. I definitely need to work on more outfit shoots, as I slacked on that the second half of the year. I think I do a pretty good job at posting “every day looks” that people can wear to work (if they work in a more relaxed environment like I do) or for the weekends.
I’m always SUPER open to feedback and I want to hear more about content that YOU want to read/see. So obviously, feel free to comment below or shoot me an email!
ANYWAY… Cheers to the upcoming new year. Wishing you the happiest, healthiest, and best new year!
