Go For It!
Hi, I’m India Marie! Have you ever wanted to do something SO bad, but just never got the guts to do it? *raises hand* ME! This blog has been something that I’ve wanted to do for years, but that little irritating person standing over my left shoulder named FEAR has been holding me back! So here I am, kicking FEAR in the a$#, getting this ball rolling! This is my platform to express to you gals/guys my love for fashion, travel, life hacks, event planning, and literally everything in between!
So here’s a little about myself… I’m 26, from Memphis, TN (born and raised), residing in Nashville. I’ve been blessed with the best husband that I ever could’ve imagined having; we’ve been married for 2 years! I’m a Project Coordinator and I basically plan training events for a large automotive company, in a nutshell. Did you go to school for that, you ask? Nope. Not even close. But I guess life just works out like that sometimes! February 1st will be my one year anniversary at my job and after a couple of weeks of reflection; I realized that for the past year, my day to day life has been nothing more than work. I kept thinking to myself, “Work the job. Don’t let the job work you.” And… I’ve let the job work me for the past year! I’ve been so consumed with work life that I just let everything else that I love slip under the rug, so, I’ve decided to dedicate this year to getting back to ME, starting new ventures, and being more open and transparent to the people and things around me. I don’t ever want to wake up 10 years from now wondering “what if?!”
Last month, I was sitting on a plane flying to Vegas and I happened to start scrolling through my notes on my phone. There were literally over a 100 of them so I started to delete them, reading each one. Side note: I don’t delete much from my phone because it’s sort of a memory bank for me and I literally go back and smile at my memories from 2012. I know, I know. Way too far back and way too much on my phone, but I haven’t quite gotten in the habit of printing my photos off (2017 goals?) Anyways, I came across a note from 2013 where I talked about my blog… that I’m just now starting in 2017. Maybe 2013 wasn’t supposed to be my year to embark on this journey, but I will tell you this. I’ve promised myself to never let that much time go by before doing something that I claim to be passionate about.
So, here I am! Excited to be starting this journey, new hobby, and opening myself up to you! I hope that you enjoy reading my blog, just as much as I love writing it!
