One of my favourite things about the weekend is sleeping in. If I could sleep in everyday, I would. Not till a ridiculous hour, just till 9am or 10am… okay, maybe 11am every now and again. I love to slowly get up, make a coffee and tuck into my favourite YouTube channels or read my favourite blogs. Just savour that quiet morning, in my house coat and relax. Then I’ll usually dive into some work and create content for the blog before heading out for the day.
That said, lately I’ve been feeling a little blah, and after digging a little deeper, I’m feel like I don’t really know what you girls want to see here. I love sharing snaps of my life, outfits and fun stuff like that, but sometimes it’s hard to know exactly what you’re looking for without asking.
This month marks A.Co est. 1984’s seventh year and there have been a lot of changes. When I started blogging, it was about fashion, then it moved towards a more personal aspect of my life, keeping the fashion but adding more lifestyle. I had always wanted to bring back the fashion side, and do feel like I’ve accomplished that since last April by bringing on a photographer. I know you guys love the outfits too, but also love the personal insights into everyday real life. Admittedly, I had started to shy away from getting too personal as this space has grown because… well, sometimes people aren’t the kindest and it can be hard to know where to draw the line.
We all know Instagram is a huge highlight reel of everyone’s life, and I feel way more connected to you on here and Snapchat, simply because I can put words to the photos or get real with you when I’m cleaning my embarrassingly messy closet, or just hanging out without make-up on (but seriously, thank gawd for those filters).
Ultimately, I wanted to ask you what you want to see on the blog. You’re the ones that keep me going and blogging wouldn’t be half the fun if I didn’t have you, my online friends, to connect and chat with. I’m hoping hearing your comments, suggestions and opinions will help spark the excitement back into me. I want this to be a space you love to come check out each morning with your coffee, or scroll through when you get a quick afternoon break.
If that’s something that interests you, I’d love for you to fill out the survey below (linked here) and I look forward to reading your feedback and creating some brand new, awesome content for 2017!
THE SURVEY IS CLOSED BUT THE LINK ABOVE WILL STILL WORK
