Everything Else, Personal Posts

Twenty Fifteen

 When I said 2014 was an exciting year, I really had no idea what was in store for 2015.  From getting married to opening the Spice rack, I experienced an immense amount of growth this year.  I learned a lot about myself, both the positive and the not so pleasant.  I set my personal and professional goals for 2016 back in November, and I’m thrilled to start the year slightly ahead of schedule. I reopened the etsy shop, chopped off my hair, and rejoined Weight Watchers on Christmas Eve to get a head start on health and fitness. As for Dina’s Days, I intentionally cut back on blogging and focused on instablogging (on Instagram) to regroup and reevaluate my direction and long term goals. I spent a lot of time considering the long term goals of this blog and decided to shift things around just a bit in 2016 to focus on a few key areas. I find myself drawn to blogs, magazines, and articles that leave me with an easy to implement takeaway –  things I can apply to my everyday life. That’s why I’m hoping to include more thrift style posts focused on casual everyday wear,  general tips for everyday people, personal posts, and a new series focusing on the reasons why I thrift.

Thank you for your support, comments, and friendship. Here’s to a thrifty 2016!
