Happy New Year Readers! While I am not much for resolutions, I do feel that a new year is a fresh start and I have big plans for both this blog and myself for 2014.
2013 was a year of experiments for me. I started selling vintage full-time and worked hard all year to build my business. Through this, I was able to learn how I work best and what I need to improve on. This experience has inspired me to share how I work at home and what I do to stay on task -- look for more of this in the coming months right here on the blog!
I've also FINALLY got my act together and put together the Livin' Vintage Newsletter! I am beyond excited about this new endeavor and can't wait to share fun extra content with my readers.
When you subscribe, you will receive a free download of a 1944 interview with Joan Crawford and let me tell ya, you don't want to miss out on this one! The details are pretty juicy!
So what can you expect to find each month in the newsletter?
-what's coming the next month
-exclusive Livin' Vintage Shop Previews
-special newsletter only shop offers and sales
-freebies, downloads, and pdf patterns
-old Hollywood scoop
-vintage fashion galore
-and much, much more!!
One of my goals for this blog is to get back to my roots, so to speak. When I started blogging 5 years ago, it was an outlet for me to share my vintage finds, my outfits, and my love for classic film. I have since moved away from much of that, partly because things change and progress, but also because somewhere along the line it began to feel more like work than fun to get up everyday and put on a vintage dress.
I wrote about some of these things in THIS POST and up until recently I still have been mulling all that over. What I didn't share in that post is the fact that I had (and have) gained some weight which really has prohibited me wearing anything out of my vintage closet.
I want to take this fresh start of a new year to become more real and honest with both my readers and myself and use this blog as a way to be accountable for that. I feel we are all on a journey of discovery and I want my journey though 2014 to be an honest one, full of love, life, vintage, and happiness.
I hope you will continue to join me!
