Happy August, loves!

Today marks a VERY exciting day : The Summer Lover has now been up & running for a year! … & this year with the blog has been amazingly valuable to me – & hopefully to all of you babes out there as well.

I can remember the first time I decided I wanted to start a blog – YEARS ago … I was like 15 probably when the thought first crossed my mind. Then I did finally start one up in 2015, where I blogged aimlessly & without reason other than wanting a hobby I could pour my time & love into.

In 2016, I wanted to work on my health + fitness, & decided to use this blog as a way to document my journey & hold myself accountable.

Pretty soon after establishing that mindset, I decided I really wanted to do something MORE. I wanted to help others. I wanted to bring like-minded, badass women together. & most of all, I wanted to encourage girls who once were in the same boat as me to take action fearlessly & to unapologetically become the BEST versions of themselves.

& I’ve been absolutely loving it. Is it too much to say that this platform gives me life?

Because it kinda does.

If you’re just joining us now at TSL & you’re feeling like you have FOMO, here’s an overview of this year & some of the most popular posts :

THE SUMMERAugust : the long-awaited site launch, a shiny new DSLR camera, & a LOT of wellness posts – kind of like the basics, if you will.

THE FALLSeptemberOctober, November : TSL went to Paris, France, fun on Snapchat, tons of wanderlust-y pictures, & small dabbles in beauty & ambition posts – it’s safe to say that the pictures on TSL would never, ever be the same after needing to invest in an external hard drive in response to all of the pictures taken abroad.

THE WINTERDecember, January, February : Back to Los Angeles & San Diego, the beginning of food modification posts, & a MAJOR site re-design – always want to make sure the site looks clean & polished for y’all.

THE SPRINGMarch, April, May : trying for a weekly posting schedule ( which went well except in April ), a MUCH brighter Instagram theme, some spring cleaning, an improved about page, & the start of the first series ( Everything Under the Sun ) – nothing quite like shattering the blogger facade w/ some MAJOR realness.

THE SUMMER AGAIN … June, July : getting more personal, much more consistent posting, Tumblr, a new Instagram handle, & a birthday celebration – & it’ll only go up from here!

Again, I can’t say this enough : thank you, thank you, THANK YOU all so much for your endless support & love – TSL wouldn’t be the same without it.

I definitely want to take this to the next level & be a lot more consistent with my posting. I know I’ve been saying this foreverrrr – but I think it’s important to make time for the things you love & care for.

SO I’m going to try 3 times a week ( yes, VERY ambitious – but you know me ) : Sundays, Tuesdays, & Thursdays. Like always, 5 AM PST, but don’t stress if I’m a few hours late ( shit happens! ). 

LOVE YOU ALL, XO.
