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 could take me up to 2 months. Looking at it in retrospect, I only got the ‘2’ part right, as I briefly revived my blog 2 whole years later.
In that period of time, a lot of changes took place in the blogosphere. I felt like posting outfit photos taken on my phone and blogging about celebrity style was no longer enough. Unsure about 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 start 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, looking 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 searching for the most Instagrammable locations.
What can you expect from this blog? I will cover a variety of topics, although I will focus primarily on sharing the latest beauty finds, my favourite places to have coffee and grab a bite, 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 collecting dust on my laptop, and hopefully help you find a little magic in the everyday mundane.
So, welcome to this next chapter! I have a feeling it will be the best one yet.
