She is {1}!

I can’t believe that an entire year has passed since I pulled myself together, bought a domain name, and started pouring my heart and soul into She is Red.  I wish this day didn’t fall in the middle of the end-of-term craziness that I’m currently working through, so that I could celebrate properly with champagne, a beautiful cake and a pouffy party dress!!  Because this day, while it may be just any other day, feels so very special to me.

I wanted to start a blog for years, but had trouble finding the courage, energy and drive to fully get one off the ground.  What would people think? Would they like what I had to say? Hate what I had to say?  Would I run out of ideas, run out of cute outfits, run out of creativity?  But here we are 82,000 visits, 332 posts, and 634 comments later, and I’m more inspired and excited about She is Red than ever before.  I’ve expanded to Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, shared adventures from Denmark, Spain, London, and New York Fashion Week, and made lots of new friends.

Thank you for sharing this adventure with me.  Thank you for your support, love and encouragement.  Thank you for helping me follow my dreams and share this part of my life with you. I’m so excited to share new changes, projects, collaborations and adventures with you in the coming months – and I hope you’ll stick with me every step of the way.

Because I truly believe that the best is yet to come.

Love love love, A

    Happy belated birthday She is Red! (:

    I’m so glad you started this blog, because it’s really hard for me (personally) to find a blog that I truly enjoy reading and seeing (as in aesthetically), and this is one of them!

    I can’t wait for good things to come your way during the blog’s second year! ♥

    Congrats!! I can’t wait until I hit my 1 year mark, it’ll be super exciting to look back and see how far I’ve come. Our blogs are kind of like our babies, huh.

    Anyway, cheers. I will have champagne FOR YOU!
