Weekly Chat: Where I’ve Been & 2018 Goals

Weekly Chat


Ok I know what you’re thinking. Wow Aubrie is alive? Where has she been? Why was she gone for so long? Well I’m back and here to answer all those questions my readers probably have. I went through a bit of a slump these past two months partially because of my Instagram being hacked and deleted (not much more to say on that), and because of my own self doubt. I’m normally a pretty optimistic person, but I really got inside my own head these last few months. I gave up on my blog, and I gave up on myself. I pretty much told myself that I wasn’t capable of doing anything including blogging.

However; I picked myself back up these past few weeks and decided to give myself a fresh start for the new year. I’ll have been blogging for one whole year next month, and I’m excited for what’s to come. I’m going to revamp my blog this year when I get the chance, and focus more on it. I lost track of everything that I was doing last year, and I’m ready to try new things this year. I have decided to start a youtube channel, and I should be posting my first video sometime in February. It takes a bit more planning to create a video because I’ve actually never edited a video before! It’s definitely going to be a learning experience, but I am excited to get started on another platform. Speaking of platforms my new Instagram username is SimplyAubrieA or you can go here: . I would definitely appreciate a follow since I’m completely starting over.

It does give me the chance to start with a blank slate. I did a loop giveaway with my old account, and I completely regretted it afterwards. It completely ruined my engagement, so in a way I’m happy to be starting over. Since I’m going to be doing things a bit differently this year I’d love to hear some ideas from all of you!

What kind of posts or videos do you want to see? Do you like my outfit posts with more photos, or do you prefer longer written posts? I want to know what you all want to be reading. I think this would benefit me as a blogger because I would really like to be able to engage with my readers more this year.

One of my other goals this year is to get more involved with my own community. I like shopping locally, and as a blogger it’s important to interact with my local community. If you’re in San Diego comment below, and even if not let me know where you’re from! I love finding other bloggers, businesses, and even locals that read my content. It’s extremely neat to find people locally that I can meet up with, or help out with events in my area!

I look forward to creating new content this year, and I hope you all enjoy it as I continue to grow! Also look out for these weekly chats where I’ll be getting a little more personal, and possibly answering questions any of you have weekly.

What I’m Reading: The Newsette

I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I tend to have a ritual I do every morning. When I wake up in the morning I turn on my coffee pot, and I plop myself on the couch to do a little morning reading. Sometimes I read a book, but I often find that I prefer something a little different. I’ve always wanted to read the newspaper in the morning, but I’ve never found myself intrigued enough to actually do it. That’s when I found The Newsette.

If you’re looking for something to read throughout your day or you find yourself endlessly scrolling through Instagram look no further. The Newsette has everything that you’re looking for in a women’s version of a newspaper. That’s why I enjoy reading the Newsette because there’s something for everybody. Looking for career advice? The Newsette’s got that. Maybe you’re looking for some fashion inspiration, or you’re just looking to read a good article on beauty or life. Well the Newsette has that too. They have just relaunched their new website, and it is beautiful. It’s easy to navigate, and you can subscribe that way you don’t miss an article that you may have needed to read.

Sometimes I find it so difficult to get inspired. The Newsette recently featured blogger Lauryn Evarts from The Skinny Confidential, and the article seriously motivated me. There’s something about hearing other bloggers’ stories that makes me want to be so much better. Somehow it makes me feel that I’ll be able to achieve my dreams too.

I think the Newsette has really captured what the modern woman needs. The modern woman is on the go, and we want something good to read. The Newsette is a reminder to give yourself some time to wind down during your day whether that be in the morning, in between classes, or waiting for your next meeting. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, sit down, and open the latest Newsette article. Take your time to read it, and enjoy those few moments of your day where you can relax. If you’re looking for inspiration, or maybe just an excuse for some down time look no further than the Newsette. There’s already some great new articles up on the site that I recommend checking out. However, if you subscribe to the newsletter I can assure you that there will only be more great pieces to read coming straight into your inbox.

Well have I convinced you yet?

Be sure to check out the latest articles, who knows you may see one of my very own in there one day, at
