Hi Strangers! Okay yeah I know I’ve been gone for a few months and many of you have been checking in with me and asking when I’ll be back.
Firstly I want to say THANK YOU for checking up on me, it really does mean a lot knowing that I’m growing a community where we actually care about one another. My goal for my blog and social media platforms has always been to inspire, help, and connect with my followers. So I really appreciate hearing from all you and I try to always respond to your messages.
Now let’s get into why I’ve been so MIA…
This is a hard question to answer solely because I enjoying sharing my life with you all but I also enjoy my privacy. So trying to find that balance is sometimes a bit difficult.
Let’s just say I needed some time to myself to reflect on the past and deal with some changes that were happening in my personal life on top of all of the social changes due to the pandemic. I was very OVERWHELMED, to say the least.
I am a natural introvert and my mind is very analytical so when situations pop up I usually retreat to myself and mentally breakdown steps to deal with it then I execute. This is exactly what I did these past months.
Though I know that doesn’t really answer your questions, it is what I am willing to share for now and I hope you all can respect my decision.
Okay now, let us get into some other more exciting life updates!
Purchasing a My First Home!
I am PURCHASING MY FIRST HOME! I am so excited about this!
This was definitely not something that was on the vision board for this year.
As many of you know I actually thought I would be moving to London or New York right now, but with the coronavirus taking over 2020 this quickly changed. Purchasing a home/apartment has definitely been something I had in the back of my mind since I moved back home after college, but I never really actively looked at the market until this year.
And lucky enough, I found something in my price range that I think has the potential to generate passive income for me in the future. That was a big factor in me making the final decision to purchase, but since I plan on doing a future blog post on this purchase I won’t give away too much on this right now.
Just know TONS OF HOME RENOVATION AND DECOR CONTENT COMING SOON.
Until then I started a public Pinterest board to share the “vibe” I’m going for in this new place. You can follow along at www.pinterest.com/kelsiebodden/
What’s Coming to the Blog
You should be so excited for future posts… because I am!
I have so much planned for the rest of 2020. And I am officially on PTO from my full-time job so I have three weeks to get ahead of the game and work on getting content out for you all.
Some future posts to look out for include
– Home Renovation/Decor on Budget
– Finances related to buying your first home
– General Budgeting/Planning tips
– More CURLY HAIR content
*hint* New Hair Color … maybe
– More Lifestyle content
I also wanted to mention that I’ve been in the video mood lately and have softly decided to start making YouTube videos again. I think this would be the best method to capture the home renovations and I’ve also been obsessed with daily/weekly vlogs. No promises on an upload schedule but like always I will keep you all updated on my insta so don’t forget to follow me on there >>> @kelsiebodden
