Spring Cleaning 2.0: Why You May Actually Enjoy It This Time

Spring Cleaning

Happy Friday lovebugs!! I have been SO busy since my last post, hence the posting lag time in between then and now. I know you guys probably don’t care much, but I do (*emoji of girl with hand raised*)! I missed posting, but my mind has just not been in a clear mental state and to be honest, I have not had the time. I’ve been spring cleaning…

I’ve spent the week moving into a new room, which was so much more work than I anticipated. Thank goodness my mama came up to LA to help me! My roomie and I decided to mix it up and switch bedrooms in our apartment since we just renewed our lease, so the past week has been filled with hours upon hours of decluttering, organizing, cleaning, sorting, hanging, nailing, lifting.

Eventually, the wheels started turning and I realized it would be hard to narrow it down to just 15. I’ve learned more about myself and about this life than I have in any other year, and I’m excited to share it with you all. Here are 15 things I’ve learned in 2015.

“Why Do You Blog Anyway?”

Guess jeans, forever 21 boots, Nordstrom scarf

I get it- blogs can seem selfish. They can seem egotistical, even. I actually thought they were obnoxious until I created my own. Before starting my own, I was skeptical of reading blogs (besides Lauren Conrad’s because, well, she’s Lauren Conrad). I would think to myself “Ok, why should I trust what this blogger is saying when I don’t even know anything about her besides that she has 70k Instagram followers? That’s shallow and stupid.”

I get what you may think when us bloggers post about our beauty tips, trend reports, and fitness regimens. So, I wanted to write this post and explain why I personally blog. I do not speak for any blogger but myself, so keep in mind these are my personal joys that blogging brings me and I think you may be surprised! Here is why I love blogging:
