It’s been awhile since I have written an actual blog post. After a whirlwind of a year and an unclear path of what lied ahead, it finally feels as if my purpose has become clear. To create a community that brings women together and inspires them to look good but more importantly feel great. Most of you might ask, “isn’t this what you have been doing for the past 5 years?” Well, yes however, my new strategy is to gather women rather than grow on social media. Let me explain.
After attending a seminar hosted by Eva Chen at Instagram in November, yes a pinch me moment for sure, it became evident that in order to grow on Instagram you needed to use it as often as possible. With conviction Eva said, “if you want to grow on Instagram create video.” For a few weeks I tried to embrace documenting my life on Instagram and sure enough my account grew but consequently I grew unhappy. My life and my family’s life was being played out through social media. Sadly, life was passing me by. For numerous reasons this me wore me down and once again I was forced to take a step back and re-evaluate my mission and how I was going to get there.
As I voiced my concerns to others about social media putting me in a bad place mentally I realized I was not alone. Social media has created a world that forces us to put our heads down when it is so clear, that we all need to spend more time looking up. Women, specifically, are craving in person interaction. The tool that I so often loathed helped me discover the next turn in my path. Through a series of events rolled out each month I will bring the mission of The Chic Series to life. To gather women and to inspire them through fashion, beauty, health & wellness and most importantly community.
Originally I came up with the name The Chic Series as I wanted to create a series of posts that inspired you to get your “chic” together. Anyone who knows me in real life knows that I am at all times balancing being a mother, a wife, a friend, a sister, a daugther and an entrepreneur. Rarely, does it seem as if I am doing any of them well. Blogging has allowed me to connect with so many incredible businesses and people that I still want to bring these to your attention in an attempt to help you “get your chic together”. The focus on how I tell you about them has now shifted from social to in-person events. The Chic Series will still maintain a presence on social media and you can head there for your daily dose of fashion, fitness, beauty and upcoming event details. However, if you want to hear my thoughts on life you will have to come see me in person.
