Pardon my over joyous attitude, this is the week...the week I have been counting down the days to for over three years. My long overdue trip to Minnesota to celebrate Christmas with my family.
I know you all have had it to high heaven with me consistently talking abut this obsession I have had over my upcoming trip, but I have not been this excited ever.. except maybe for my wedding day, but this closely follows in 2nd place.
I know I have been hella absent from my blog in the past few weeks but life handed me a crap ton of mess that I just had to deal with, and left NO personal time for my blog nor even my instagram, facebook, or any thing else with the word "social" in front of it.
I know how boring it is to go to a blog day in and day out and see nothing but product/shop reviews and no personal updates and for that I am truly sorry, that is never what I intended Life:Oceanside to be, and I promise from here on out it will be just as much if not more personal than it is business around these here stompin' grounds.
I do have one quick announcement. Again I am sure you are probably like "umm..we know this" but I really just want to disclaimer the crap out of this because I do not want y'all to give up on me and think I have went Amanda Bynes from the blog world.
Starting Thursday morning there will be a disclaimer up on dis here blog. This is for the purpose of giving new visitors (and maybe some of my veteran bffs) something to catch up on while I am gone. It will state that I am currently on vacation from my blog and that I will be returning on January 1st. blah blah blah. Please please do not forget about me when I abandon my blog baby for two weeks. I would love for y'all to follow me on Instagram as I post a bajillion pictures of my baby sister and my dog experiencing snow for the first time. (of course)
January around here is going to be a little different, I am going to be introducing some new sponsorship options (all sponsorships are FREE right now using code: GROWTOGETHER), I am going to be putting much more focus into my content. Including the reviews/shops I choose to work with, and as I stated before putting my passion back in to the personal posts where I can relate with & to my readers, I mean that is what started this little venture to begin with and I have seem to lost a bit of site of that.
I have been working on these updates for quite sometime and am very excited for the new ventures the year has for me (and for all of YOU). I won't have some exciting, gorgeous new design, so please don't be bothered by this dusty little teal and white you find around here. I have become QUITE fond of my design. Thank you Lisette:)
Anyway, I'll cut my novel of a post short, I am off to catch up on my 810 unread Bloglovin' post.
Happy Monday y'all. Here is to new ventures!
