Oh hey! I feel like I’ve been absent around here lately! Miss me? If you follow me on social media, you might already have an idea of the news I have to share with you today. A few weeks ago, I accepted the role of Contributing Editor at MyDomaine. Eeek! I’m now responsible (along with a super-talented rockstar team of gals—and guy) for the home décor content and curated boutiques on MyDomaine. Hence the slight disappearing act.
To be completely honest, I’m still pinching myself that I get to do this for work every day. Being an editor is something that I always aspired to, and it’s now a reality. And I’m loving every minute of it. The past two weeks have taught me the true meaning of “do something you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”. Even though I’m a little tired from putting in long hours across all projects, I feel more happy and accomplished than, possibly ever. I’ve been a part of the blogger network at MyDomaine since its launch in 2012, and I’ve seen the site grow to become one of the most influential sources in home décor for millennials today. It makes me so proud and humbled to join the MyDomaine team to help drive this inspiring content to millions every day.
In the past year, I have thought a lot about what the next step of my career should be. Savvy Home is, and always will be my passion project. I feel so lucky that I’ve been able to make a career out of it (so don’t worry, Savvy Home isn’t going anywhere)! With that said, I also knew that it was time to take the next step: I wanted to be part of something bigger, but didn’t necessarily want to lead it. Despite my slight workaholic tendencies (my friends will attest) I knew that scaling my company (or starting a new one) would mean putting my social life on hold for a few years, something I wasn’t prepared to do at 29. Even though I might have to scale back around here a bit, I’m determined to put in the overtime to keep bringing you great content on a weekly basis.
Savvy Home turning five last month meant a lot because I was also turning the page into this new chapter. I never could have dreamed of being in this position at MyDomaine if it wasn’t for Savvy Home and all of your support since the early days. So I want to give you all a big thank you! For giving me the motivation to build Savvy Home into what it is today; for inspiring me to create original content for all of you! I’m so in love with this little community that we have built here over the past five years. And I can’t wait to bring Savvy Home into its next chapter.
Sometimes I might miss a post or two, please be patient. One thing is for sure, whether on Savvy Home or MyDomaine I’ll never stop inspiring you to create a home you’ll love, to give you my best tips, to forecast trends and give you shopping insights, or to discuss how we—the millennial generation—are transforming the way we live. I hope you’ll stay along for the ride! Lastly, if you occasionally miss me around here, you can always check out what I’ve been up to on MyDomaine. Here are a few stories I’ve been working on so far…
