Cheers to the New Years!

January 1, 2014

First off I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! I hope everyone is having an amazing start to 2014! Reflecting on Year 2013, it was a year of finding myself and understanding life. I could not feel more blessed and grateful for the people I have in my life. I have learned a few important things in 2013 which are - stay healthy, stay positive, surround myself with positive and like-minded people, say yes a little more, listen, and keep chasing my dreams and show my passion.What is your New Year's Resolution for 2014? Leave me a comment because I would really like to know! :)

New Blog/Layout:
Throughout the past year, I spent a great amount of time recreating my layout and re-evaluating what my blog represents and how I want to brand my blog. When I first started this blog, I knew right off the bat that I wanted it to be a fashion blog mixed with a small amount of lifestyle blog. I wanted this blog to be my fashion diary, a place where I can share my vision and passion in styling and hoping to inspire others in some way shape or form. Although my style is constantly evolving, I have learned that the foundation of my style classic, chic and feminine. Therefore, I have created a layout that is clean and simple and reflects a sense of my style. Now, I am no professional in graphic design so it was certainly difficult building this layout all by myself. I give mad props to Graphic Designers. Back in the day when Xanga and Myspace were fairly famous, I enjoyed spending my free time experimenting in creating layouts with the use of HTML and Photoshop, but I haven't created layouts since I have stopped using those sites which was a long time ago. It took some trial and error and a great amount of research on Google and Youtube for tutorials to refresh my mind on how to piece together HTML so I am finally happy to share it with you all! In addition to the new layout, I am happy to announce I have also purchased a domain name! I thought about making Morningblushblog.com official for a while so here it is! :)


New Camera:

The New Year calls for a new focus and a new perspective! It has been a long term goal of mines to save up for a DSLR. I really wanted a DSLR because I wanted higher quality images whether it be for my blog or in my daily life. Truth be told, I have been using a point and shoot since the very first post of this blog with a few exceptions such as the "Paint the Town Red" and "Birthday Reflections" shoot. At the beginning of last year, I promised myself no more waiting, I am setting a goal to get the camera by the end of this year. After nearly a year of hard saving, I am excited to say I have reached my goal! I guess you can say this is a Christmas gift to myself? This is my biggest investment by far so I am going to treat it with lots of love and care. I thought it would only be appropriate to give my camera a name so I decided to name it after my favorite city, Paris! I am looking forward to all the exciting adventures with my camera and also creating better content and images for you all! Maybe this camera will give me luck in visiting Paris? Wishful thinking :)

Sorry for the lengthy post and digressing a lot of the time. Don't forget to leave me a comment on your New Year's Resolutions! I really would love to hear them! Happy New Year's Everyone! Talk to you soon!
