If you have been a follower of The Voide for any period of time, thank you. You may have noticed that it has been quite some time since I last posted on this blog, and that my posts have been sporadic at best over the last 6 months. If the measuring stick for a good fashion blogger is timely posting, I certainly have not been measuring up, and today I want to share with you why that is.
Last year, right around this time (Halloween Day to be specific) I moved across the country from LA to New Jersey. I grew up in New Jersey and after 3 and a half years of living in LA I decided that I wanted move back home to be closer to my family and friends. My parents were gracious enough to welcome me back into the family home with open arms, and for that I am truly grateful. Their generosity gave me the opportunity to re-evaluate my life, and my goals, without the stress of the many financial obligations that come with living on your own.
Over the past year, I spent a lot of my time developing an idea that I had to create a line of bracelets that double as hair-ties. I've loved that concept, and I didn't see anything in the marketplace that matched the vision of the bracelets I had in my head. Today I am so excited to share with you the result of this past year's efforts, my new line Tied & True Bands.
Tied & True Bands is a line of adorable wristbands that double as hair-ties and I am very excited about them! I've decided to donate 10% of my profits to Conservation International, an organization that works tirelessly to ensure a healthy planet for everyone. My sincere hope for Tied & True Bands is that people will really connect with both the style and the message and that together we we will be able to make a meaningful contribution to the preservation of our environment.
So there you have it, the reason this blog has been so (unfairly!) neglected is because my focus has been elsewhere, and for the meantime at least, is going to remain elsewhere. Nevertheless, creating and writing The Voide has been a meaningful experience for me because it taught me to express my creativity and to explore new avenues. I would encourage anyone reading this post to do the same!
Thank you to those of you who have followed this blog, your support and interest has been invaluable to me.
