Happy 7 Years, Seventeen James! A Life Recap & Plans for the Future

Outfit: Shirt - Custom (similar here) / Skirt - H&M (old, similar here) / Shoes - Tony Bianco

Today marks the 7 year anniversary of this blog. It was seven years ago that this blog came to life, when I was encouraged at university to start one as a place to constantly write and share my passions. Since then, I've been running this blog (not as consistently as I would like) and have loved opening up about fashion, beauty and lifestyle. If anything, this space has brought me closer to fashion, not in just what I wear, but to the world of fashion. I love discussing fashion weeks, designers, trends and so on. For me this space is such an incredible creative output for that. 

I'll be honest with you, I thought I would be in a different place with this blog by now, but as they say "life gets in the way". A lot has happened in the last 7 years; most importantly finishing my Undergrad in Journalism in 2017, and now just a week ago, I finished my Masters in Media & Communications. I haven't graduated yet, but all my coursework and dissertation are complete. I'm genuinely quite proud of myself, especially completing a degree during this pandemic. 

 

Moreover, I've been back and forth between London and Colombo, and then just as I was about to return to London, COVID hit. So yeah, definitely things happened. We all spent countless days in lockdown over the last 18 months, or even more now, so life hasn't been smooth sailing. 

That being said, creating content has definitely been such a wonderful output for me to not only enjoy my passions but to unwind... which is ironic since it's work in a way. I've been utterly grateful to have this blog for 7 years and only hope to have it for another 7 or more. I know I haven't had the trajectory that other bloggers or content creators have had, but I'm happy to continuously learn and grow, finding who I am and the kind of content I want to make as I go along. 

I definitely think in recent months I have figured out where I want this to go and hopefully I can take it there. So I hope you continue on this journey with me as I learn and create more.I have such incredible plans and hope to make loads of different updates and in the near future, but in that time I'll continue to write and create. So follow along here, on my Instagram and my YouTube!

Thank you for sticking with me over these 7 years. I'm grateful for all of you who continue to support, read my words or admire my content. I wouldn't be here without you. 

Here's to the future of Seventeen James. 

Lots of love, 

Emily
