HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
Wow. I really cannot believe I have been blogging for two years this month – it feels like it was only yesterday that I was writing the first Boyinbreton.com birthday post. How time flies when you’re having fun and working hard!
This year has been crazy busy with the opportunities that have arisen: I got to work with some of my personal favourite fashion and lifestyle brands and even became a guest fashion features contributor to Winq magazine for a short period of time – never did I think that my styling work and words would be published in a magazine. There’s such a buzz to seeing your work in print, in stores!
I met some truly wonderful people too this year from lovely PR’s (who have since become friends) to fellow bloggers, who I hope to be able to work with in some way in the third year of the blog.
I want to say a tremendous thank you to everyone that visits my blog, takes the time to read my posts, watch my videos and engage with me on social media. Without you guys I probably would have packed in with the blogging a long time ago! The blogging world can be a tough place to stay motivated when working a full time job… your words of wisdom and double-tapped hearts really do mean a lot to me.
When I started the blog I set out with the idea to help and inspire you guys with fashion tips and lifestyle advice, and it appears that my mission statement is becoming realer every day. There’s still such a long way to go and I have so much more up my sleeve that hopefully will come to fruition in the year ahead. I’d love to work with my fellow bloggers, expand my connections with other creatives and bring you guys some wonderful new content to read and look at!
I also need to say a super huge thank you to my boyfriend, family and friends for being so supportive, patient and for encouraging me to persevere with the blog. Sometimes blogging can be a vacuum that sucks you in and can be misunderstood for selfishness, so… I thank you for putting up with me for asking you to take photo’s of me whenever we do anything or go anywhere. It’s a blogger prerogative!
To celebrate this birthday and in style, I teamed up with one of my favourite brands at the moment: the incredible ENLIST. If you are new to the brand, let me explain a little bit about them and why I’m so drawn to them…
ENLIST offers contemporary clothing focusing on aspirational design, finish and quality at a really attainable price point. Each collection is made up of key pieces that will transition and work with newer additions every season.
Like the stylish lovechild of Scandi and British style, the brand encompasses three tiers to form each collection seamlessly, allowing the wearer to create looks which speak to their own personality and reflect their lifestyle. I really back ‘hero’ pieces in a guys wardrobe and ENLIST has some of the strongest pieces to work with. Their collection is sophisticated and luxurious with a touch of everyday ease about it.
If you are looking to invest in impeccable clothing that is beautifully crafted and made to stand the test of time, ENLIST should be the first on your list.
