It’s Been A Year

Let’s just pretend that this post was up last Friday and not today… On February 17, celebrated its first year anniversary! If you have been following me for a while, you know that previously my blog was named But it’s been a year now since I did a revamp and a rebranding which made it more fashion-centric. Thus, LoveofMode was born.

When I did the switch from old to new, my mentality towards blogging also changed. Because I was discussing topics I’m actually passionate about, I was able to succeed and see a future. I have, and will continue to, put in all my time and energy into growing it. The West Coast Explorer was more like a hobby, where now, I consider Love of Mode my job. And I love it!

So much hard work came with LOM but a lot of great opportunities too. I’m grateful for every brand I’ve gotten the chance to work with the past year and looking forward to more.

As always, I stand behind every project and every collaboration and I promise to always present to you the highest quality content. I’ve never worked with a brand that I don’t truly believe and love, and that will not change. With blogging comes a lot of responsibilities. Whilst others might not be as picky as me and say yes to everything, I don’t have a problem with rejecting a project if it doesn’t meet my standards and ethics… I owe you that, my amazing readers and friends!

It’s cliche, but I have to give credit where credit is due. Hard work alone isn’t what got me here, it’s also your constant support and encouragement. Reading your comments on each post, on many occasions truly made my days brighter. I loved reading your blogs and get to know the real person behind a picture… Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Year 2 for is going to be exciting! I have a lot of fun travel plans that I can’t wait to share with you. I’m also working on creating new and refreshing content that I hope you will enjoy.

Love of Mode is officially one… Here’s to many more years to come!
