2018: Year of New Beginnings & Fresh Inspiration

Calmly Kaotic 2018

What a huge year! I can’t actually believe it’s over and with 2018 only days away I thought I’d share with you what’s coming for the new year… Well, lots! We’ve got wheels in motion for all sorts of fun and games with more property developments and travel, but what I wanted to share with you here is what you can expect to see & read across the blog & my socials. It’s time to set some intentions, and propel forward in new and exciting directions. 

There’s been a fair amount of change in my life this year and it’s given me a real sense of focus & direction. I actually sat down at the same time as I wrote that letter to my body, and I scribbled down a wellness plan. It’s not a short term ‘new years resolutions’ kind of plan, this one is BIG, long term, and open ended. It’s detailed and it will take as long as it takes (and evolve over time I’m sure), but it’s a commitment to getting to a place of healthy routine, built around the vision of my best life.

The process of completing this exercise forced me to evaluate what I’ve been doing, and therefore what needs to change in order for that vision & reality to align.

So you’ll notice some changes in my Instagram & on my blog in 2018! This year is about refining my content, and simplifying everything.

When I started this thing I labelled myself a fashion & lifestyle blogger, all the while knowing that I really needed to define what kind of fashion & lifestyle and then back that up with consistent & focused content. I guess at the start I didn’t really have an answer to the question of ‘what do I want to focus on?‘ and I struggled to find my niche. The truth is I was buried in the daily grind – a daily grind that had caused me to lose sight of my true self & passions a long time ago. Over the past year however I’ve been chipping away at my personal growth and I feel like it’s all come together at precisely the right time, to course correct and start the new year with fresh motivation.

To get to the point, in 2018 this is what I’ll be sharing:
Healthy lifestyle

I’ll be sharing more of my personal wellbeing journey feat. mostly plant based wholesome food, natural beauty and lots of inspo around personal growth and holistic health. I’ll share my research, findings, my process and progress, as I continue down this path to live my best life with my hubff (yep, just made that up – hubs + bff).

Eclectic fashion

Focusing on my true authentic style feat. linen & natural fabrics, more denim, vintage finds, jumpsuits, a touch of sparkle, and all things high-wasted. There’ll be more about the labels too, showcasing fashion with substance, designers & labels doing amazing things, as well as my weekly fav finds.

Travel & Wanderlust

There’ll also be more travel (guides for the places we’ve been, as well as lust-worthy places to put on the bucket list). You’ll also be able to find more of our travel stuff over at @life_of_lark.

Home & Hubs

Of course there will be more of general life too (especially all the behind the scenes stuff on my stories) feat. our next big home renovation, interior design inspo, and more of my spunk of a husband and his party shirts.

I’m SO excited for this year… If you’re diggin’ what I’m dishin’ out and want to follow along you can subscribe to my new weekly mailout by adding your email address in the subscribe box below. My weekly wrap up will start early in the new year!

Wishing everyone THE BEST new years, what ever you’re up to. This year hubs and I will be having another quiet one, lapping up the JOMO (joy of missing out).

It’s been so good for my husband and I, feel SO much better for making the switch to plant based. Can’t wait to see all the content you’ve got coming in the new year too!
