Well guys, this is it, the first official blog post! I’ve thought for years that I would love having a blog, but I never thought I would actually do it. It’s not a simple endeavor to start a blog. It’s intricate, and, honestly, a little bit personal. But I have to tell you, I am SO excited that I delved into this and I’m so happy to have you here starting this journey with me!
I had a blast with the inception of The Savvy Camel. It’s allowed me to use all of my favorite creative skills and now I get to share my passions with all of you! I’m really wondering why I didn’t do this sooner. Probably because until 6 months ago, I was in a long distance relationship, planning a wedding, finishing my last year of school with an hour and a half daily commute, working a part time job, and trying to find a full time job from 5 states a way. Let’s not forget about maintaining my other relationships, squeezing in my workout routine, and making personal time for my own sanity. So yeah, my plate was a little full!
All of that is to say that The Savvy Camel is a long time coming. After graduating in May, I started working at Nordstrom. The dream, right? What self-proclaimed fashionista doesn’t want to work at Nordstrom? Well, I have to say that I’m pretty darn proud to be a part of such a fabulous company! And the best part is, I went to school for fashion, so I’m definitely in the right industry. I’m constantly surrounded by what fuels my passion, which has really encouraged me to finally share my own personal style. So, here I am!
This blog is going to be driven by my style. I want to share the inspiration and passion that goes into creating my personal style. I think every person has that one thing that really fulfills them and makes them feel like they’re reaching their potential. Fashion is definitely that thing for me. It’s how I express my personality and how I unleash my creativity. I should have known much earlier in life than I did that I would somehow end up in some part of the fashion industry. I’ve always loved dressing up! One of my earliest yet most prominent memories as a little girl involves fashion. I remember being about five years old, my grandma taking me shopping, and buying me two new outfits before she went for her weekly hair appointment (wonder where I got the “girly” in me from?). Once we got to the salon, I tried my new clothes on and walked through the salon like a model on the runway. I was a shy little girl, too, but fashion clearly brought out my personality, even then!
While my passion for fashion (I couldn’t not use that phrase, come on) will be the driving force behind this blog, I want to be able to share all of the things that I feel are important in everyday life! I also want to talk about fitness, food, and my friends and family! I really have a passion for taking care of my body, but I’m definitely an amateur fitness enthusiast and I’m still growing my skills in the kitchen. All that means is that you all are my motivation to really perfect these things! I’ll be the guinea pig for us both and let you guys know what does and doesn’t work. How does that sound?
Long story short, I’m super excited to start sharing with you guys and really hope you find some inspiration in, learn something new from, or feel challenged by this blog. But most importantly, I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I know I will!
Now that you know where the motivation for the blog came from, I would love to hear what y’all are most excited about or if there’s something specific you’d like me to talk about! More importantly, say hi and introduce yourself! I’m super excited to get to know everyone! Then, head over this way to learn a little bit about me!
