To all 22,461 of you…

I wanted to take the moment to thank you for all the amazing things you do for me and explain how much you impact my life!

I also wanted to sort of have this as an archive for when I’m having a bad day, I can go back and read my own words from when I was feeling incredibly grateful.

So where do I even start?

I literally don’t even know how to process all the love I’ve been receiving these past few days from YOU. If you guys only knew how much I doubt myself and how many times I’ve felt so down because I don’t know if I’m worthy of my dreams. (I know, harsh huh?)

It’s a little superficial of me to admit it but the social media world seems to only feel rewarding when you get showered by likes, comments, pr packages, brand deals, etc. So for me, particularly,  I know I’m heading into the right direction every time a brand reaches out to me with a collaboration opportunity. It really is the only “tangible” thing that tells me “hey, you’re doing amazing and you just got one step closer into making this your full time job”.

Often times I feel down because I don’t land collaborations with popular brands or get on their PR list. It’s so hard when you see all the girls that are at the “same level” as you work with these huge brands that you would only dream of working with. (Revolve, Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, Lulus, Sephora, etc) I personally think that the brands I get to work with are quite different than your average blogger. Nevertheless, I’m always grateful for whatever opportunity comes my way, no matter how small or big.

These past few days I’ve gotten so many work opportunities, features and project releases. I’ve been feeling especially grateful and I’m so overwhelmed. It feels so damn good to finally feel proud of your work and to see your hard work turn into successful features and collaborations.

At the same time, I’m so incredibly lucky because if you know anything about the power of attraction and manifestation… I’m pretty much doing quite the opposite every time I doubt myself, which is ALL the time. But the fact that despite that, I’m still able to attract great opportunities shows how forgiving the universe Is when you have good intentions at heart.

It’s also taught me that while I’m begging the universe to work with these huge brands, that might not necessarily be who I’m really meant to work with. I am trusting the process and knowing that the right brands and the right people are coming to my life because they align with my purpose. I’ve met so many amazing human beings and it’s been such a pleasure working with the brands I get to work with.

Just over the weekend I was featured in an interior design account with over 1 Million followers and tonight, my holiday campaign with Drybar was released. I landed yet another collaboration with Buffalo Exchange, a brand that I’ve been supporting for over 4 years.

All these great opportunities would never be possible without each and EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. OF. YOU. I know people often say this but I want you to know that I’m really aware of this and I truly mean it.

Thank you for believing in me. Even when I’m being vulnerable and admitting that I don’t have my life together and that I often doubt myself. Because you still believe in me despite that. I truly think that often times you guys believe in me more than I believe in myself. So thank you for being my cheerleaders and for never leaving me hanging when I’m having an honest moment with you.

Thank you to all 22,461 of you friends. I am truly living the best years of my life and it’s all thanks to YOU.

Xx,
