On Getting Older + Updating My Life

Through your decades you can evolve with the times without losing your established identity.  You can refresh your brand without going for a complete makeover and attempting to become some new person.  That's a bit like a crash diet, and such diets don't work.  You will be back to your old self sooner rather than later.  Better to tweak.  Update does not mean "abandon."
-French Women Don't Get Facelifts

I am reading the book French Women Don't Get Facelifts and wanted to share one of my favorite quotes from the book so far.  I feel like I am in an evolving season.  I am getting older...30 years come this August.  But I also have learned to change some of my mindsets about my body, my purpose, and the person I am.  You could say I am settling into the person I am, trying to make it the best it can be, but remaining true to myself.  I am learning to be content.  And with that comes much freedom.

As I hear people use the word "rebrand" to give their blog or business a new look, I consider my own online presence and how it reflects the current person I am.  Domestic Fashionista seems to continue to be a good fit.  A name I gave myself in my early twenties, is ready to stick with me as I begin my thirties.  I think both aging and keeping up with the times can be a temptation to get down on oneself.  Instead I am choosing to embrace who I am and let the world do all the changing.  Instead I want to be classic.  One fashion trend that never goes out of style.

  1. Thank you so much for the help with the Feedly button! I couldn't work it out for ages and then found this and it worked! Thanks :)

  2. I've just realised that it only works on the larger Feedly button - do you know how to change the code with the smaller buttons, the one that just says 'follow'? http://www.feedly.com/factory.html

    The blog I'm working on is fodmapfreedom.co.uk

  3. Hmm...not sure. I used to have a smaller follow button on my sidebar and I believe it worked fine. I would think you would just go through the process of creating the smaller button but if it still doesn't work I would imagine something is wrong with the coding on their end. Sorry I could not be more help!
