Changes Coming to The Blog

Our news today comes with a heavy heart attached. Moving forward Courtney will not be an editor or contributor to 5 O'Clock Fashionistas.

Obviously, this is not a small change but I do not expect this to take a toll on the blog. This was a decision that came after a lot of thought but ultimately, it is the right decision for the blog. When we started this back in September I don't think we knew what we were getting in to. The hard - sometimes exhausting - work can take a toll on some and definitely isn't for everybody. When we started this I thought writing and getting posts up would be a piece of cake. Sadly, it was the exact opposite. It's been tough, it's required hours of work, and sometimes it can feel like you did so much for so little.

We always wanted this to be a place of inspiration and happiness. Which, for me it has been. Some weeks this is the only thing that gets me excited, the only thing that gets me out of bed. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my job and my career. But, 5oF is a place where I can come and be creative and have fun. It's something I look forward to doing and it has been exciting to watch the blog grow and connect with the amazing bloggers and community that we have only just started to build.

So, what exactly does this mean for the blog? Well, a little and a lot. I am not the most fashion forward lady but I have decided that's ok. There will still be fashion posts but they are going to come from a different angle. I have played around with the idea of showcasing some of my more fashionable friends but also documenting my exploration and progression into a more fashion forward way of thinking. My posts will be very honest and straight forward. I will be sharing my highs and lows. Something I have really been struggling with has been my body image. I have grown upset with my body but I am on a mission to change that. You will find that here as well. I am not going to hate on my body because, that's not ok. However, I will be sharing the different ways I am changing my lifestyle - from food and drinks to exercise classes.

I think you all will love the changes I have in store for 5 O'Clock Fashionistas and I can't wait to continue to grow and connect with you all.
