"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." -Coco Chanel

Time to Reflect...

Hello my fellow Sophisticates. I greatly apologize for my absence over the last few months (the last 5 months to be exact.) I have been taking some time off to focus on school and graduating, work, and reflecting on who I am as a person. These past months have been filled with regret, fear, consciousness, disbelief, and the constant questioning of who I am as a person on the inside and the outside. Recently, I've had to deal with some stressful events that have caused me to look at myself and my life and evaluate the people and things in my life and determine which of those should be cast away in order for me to become a better person and to have a less stressful life. Upon looking at every element that makes up my life, I've made some very cutthroat decisions and important changes that I hope will influence me to live a happier and healthier life. One of these changes directly correlates to my blog and YouTube channel. I've found that my passion for blogging and vlogging has been severely dimmed (hence this rather long hiatus) by all of the stresses and negativity that has once had a great influence in my life. So, with this negativity being removed, I intend to return to blogging and allow myself to enjoy the things that make me happy. I know that this all is rather unclear and vague, and it is all still quite new to me, but I hope to display my happier life and reengaged passions in this blog and its corresponding social media platforms. I can't wait for us to enter this journey towards happiness together! I know that it is out there, and that it is available to all of us...<3

Best wishes,
