Okay for this Friday post, I just wanted to share what I have been thinking about doing with this blog lately. When I started Sparkle and Shine, I just wanted to have a place where I can talk about anything and everything that I loved or made me happy. I initially tried to be something different than what I was seeing already. However, as the months went by, I began to lose what I wanted this blog to be, and it started to look just like every other beauty blog out there. I was doing posts that I knew people might be interested in seeing, but it wasn't what I wanted. Of course, I have been loving doing this blog, I just think it needs a little 'make-over.'
I have decided that I am going to try and move away from the standard beauty blog where every post I post has to do with some sort of beauty or style topic (reviews, recommends, etc.) and start making this a place where I can just put my thoughts down. I still plan on mixing in a few OOTDs or product reviews, but I don't want this routine that I've created for myself. No more constant need of a Monday Must-have, Wednesday post, and a Friday product review. This blog has become to much of another routine in my life, and I want to go back to when it was fun for me to get on and post. Sparkle and Shine used to be my escape, but it became more like a homework assignment that I wasn't interested in. This blog means way too much to me to let that happen any longer.
I really hope this change will be beneficial and spice things up a bit! I definitely won't delete my old posts because I have worked too hard on those. I just want y'all to expect some different ones! Does that sound good? I really appreciate all my readers, and I want to thank you for sticking with me so far over the summer/fall. I love this blog, so it means a lot that y'all do too! :)
Well there's my plan and I'm sticking to it (hopefully)! Have an amazing rest of your day! I will try to get a new post up soon!
