Let me present something that’s been a long time coming. When I announced I was going to take a break from blogging back in December 2012, I said it might take me up to 2 months. Looking back, I only got the ‘2’ part right, as I briefly revived my blog 2 whole years later.
In that time, a lot changed in the blogosphere. I felt like posting outfit photos taken on my phone and blogging about celebrity style was no longer enough. Uncertain of my place in the blogging community and disheartened, I stopped blogging altogether.
Still, it didn’t feel right. I missed having a creative outlet where I could connect with people who shared the same interests. I spent the next couple of years telling anyone who would listen about my plans to start a new blog and going back and forth on this decision. Finally, I can officially say… Welcome to Into the Bloom!
To kick things off, let me briefly introduce myself. My name is Dominika, and I’m a recent graduate working in the fashion industry and navigating my twenties. I spend a lot of time reading other blogs, searching for new beauty products to add to my never-ending wishlist, making mental maps of places I would love to visit in the future, and looking for the most Instagrammable locations.
What can you expect from this blog?
I will cover a range of topics, but I will primarily focus on sharing the latest beauty finds, my favourite coffee and food spots, as well as travel guides and tips. Into the Bloom will essentially be my online diary where I will share my thoughts with the world, keep my photographs from gathering dust on my laptop, and hopefully help you find some magic in the everyday mundane.
So, welcome to this next chapter! I have a feeling it will be the best one yet.
