Train of thoughts: My blog as a diary

blog-as-a-diary-roermond-floral-bodysuit3

Hi everyone,

It’s time for another train of thoughts where I am letting my thoughts take over control of my typing. See it as a form of rambling, but I’ll try to stay on topic!

Check out my previous train of thoughts about Pokémon Go if you are curious 😉

For today I want to talk to you about my view on my blog at the moment. From the beginning I think the main focus of my blog has always been fashion. But as I am growing older, yes I turned 26 last week, I want my blog to grow with me. I am getting more mature and I want my blog to mature as well. So at the moment I am thinking a bit about changing it up a little. To ensure that my blog can grow further.

Because sometimes, as a blogger with a main focus on fashion, I feel like you can only get really big if you have a lot of money to buy clothes. Or for example if you can borrow designer stuff at PR firms / friends / family etc. Let’s just be honest, I lost my job and will be unemployed starting November if I haven’t find my next challenge by then. So I just don’t have a lot of money to spend. And in my opinion, if you want to grow your blog, you really need to invest, at least a little. For example as a fashion blogger you need to be able to show nice on-trend outfits or at least, very diverse outfits. And as a beauty blogger you want to be able to review new products to create new make-up looks with.

My blog as a diary…

Therefore I am thinking that perhaps I need to transform my blog a little bit. At the moment I am just not able to share a new outfit every week and I also want to share more than just my love for fashion. Not only do I think sticking too much to fashion limits my blog a little bit, I also feel like I just have so much more to offer!

I would love to be able to share more personal stories, but it would also be great to share more magazine types of posts, posts where I can show of my writing skills. I always shared some more lifestyle related posts once in a while but I think I should share more of these. From posts about my latest travel adventures, inspiration posts, trend reports, must haves et cetera.

Basically I want my blog to become more ME, more Saranda. I am still working on the exact changes and how I want to do everything. But let me just assure you, it’s not all going to change! As mentioned earlier I just want Serendipity to evolve and to grow with me. What this means, hopefully, is that this blog will not only grow mature with me, but also with you as my readers… So please also let me know what you would like to see more of on the blog and I will keep it in my mind!

Let me hear your train of thoughts on this topic and stay tuned! 🙂

My third vlog ever is now online! 

How FAKE / REAL is social media really?!


Ciao dearies,

Sorry for not blogging for a while, there is a lot going on, working a lot and not really being inspired or feeling like blogging were all part of my reason. But I am inspired, have some things to share and there is a little bit more time for me to write about these things again.
Yesterday I went to Amsterdam to visit press agencies and see the upcoming collections from some of my favorite brands. A lot of fun, catching up, eating the most yummy and most pretty red velvet cake, getting tired of running around from PR agency to the next one, but mostly it was inspiring!

But today I want to talk to you about an issue and I am mostly very interested in hearing YOUR opinion on this matter, so please join the discussion afterwards 🙂

There are some discussions going on about the 19 year old  Australian Instagram model & socialite Essena O’Neill who told the world that social media is FAKE. Her ‘coming out’ and ‘opening up to the world’ got viral pretty quickly and there have been a lot of online reactions. So I asked myself: How FAKE / REAL is social media really?!

See above the viral video from Essena and read on to read my reaction and my opinion on this subject.

Baci,
Saranda

Personal: What I love about being a blogger

things I love about being a blogger
Ciao dearies,

I have been blogging for a pretty long while now and I don’t recall ever writing and telling you about the things I like or what I love about being a blogger.

So here it goes!

Today I am telling you some things I really love about being a blogger. The blogger world is a pretty weird one I think for outsiders and I noticed that some people just don’t seem to get it. Which sometimes it’s funny, but in other situations you also get really annoying questions or even mean comments. Not cool.

But although it’s a unique scene, where everyone ‘knows’ each other but sometimes only from online haha, I feel great to be part of the blogger world! Let me tell you why 🙂

Baci,

Blog inspiration tag: What makes me inspired to blog?

blog inspiratie tag sarandaadriana fashion blogger dutch amsterdam

Ciao dearies,

Oh it’s been a while unfortunately because I had the flu and was really busy getting a job. Well I am slowly recovering from the flu (still sniffing a bit hehe) and I found THE job!! YES!

I am so happy to be able to tell you that I have finally found a job again. I already started and have worked three days in a row from Saturday on. So I am quiet the busy bee again. Having a job in the fashion industry (I’ll tell you more about the job later on in a personal diary) gives me more structure but it also gives me great inspiration to write new articles! And I am really fortunate to work with amazing products from phenomenal designers!

Okay more about that later… Today / Tonight it’s all about inspiration! What makes me inspired to blog?! Well I am going to tell you all about it in this TAG which is originally from the Dutch blog ‘BlogQueen.nl’. For the Dutch TAG, check out this link! 

Curious to read more about my blog inspiration?
