It’s been a while since I shared a life update but I feel like it’s a little overdue. I tend not to get too personal on the blog but I do enjoy sharing aspects of my life; I fell in love with blogging because it offers a unique perspective from a personal point of view so it’s only fair that I share my own. The personal posts always tend to resonate more with my lovely readers too, I always say that a blogger’s perspective is their best USP and it’s always nice to get to know the person behind the images and words.
Fashion Daydreams has been chugging along nicely over the last couple of months, giving out sartorial and life advice in equal portions, and my personal life has been steadily progressing too. Earlier this year, I decided to quit my day job. I hadn’t really planned my next move but I knew my current situation wasn’t fulfilling me or making me happy. I touched on this in my previous blogpost which discusses the art of letting go and why walking away from a situation which no longer serves you is one of the best forms of self-care.
Sometimes it’s better to walk away from something to create space in your life for something better, and that is exactly what happened. I’ve worked in the fashion industry for 8 years and while I will always love fashion, appreciate how hard working the industry is and be thankful for the incredible opportunities I have had along the way, I realised I was suffering from ‘fashion fatigue’. I have experienced so many different facets of the industry over the years, from high street to luxury and in-house to agency, and I realised I wanted to step away from the industry.
I landed an incredible role at a tech company (!) leading influencer marketing, which is a huge opportunity to work on an exciting role for a company I genuinely love and am passionate about. How lucky am I? I have worked here for a couple of months and honestly could not be happier. I’m really looking forward to making a difference and effecting positive change in the world of influencers.
Being in the tech world, part of my job will require travelling to sunny San Francisco. I will be doing this a lot over the next couple of months so I felt it only fair to give you advance warning! Rather than going completely MIA, I’m going to cut down blogging to once a fortnight but you can keep up to date with my shenanigans on Instagram.
