Happy First Birthday to Mavelle Style!

I have always been obsessed with fashion, a huge foodie, a lover of romance and been drawn to the creative side of, well, everything. So, one year ago this weekend I decided it was time to jump on the blogging band wagon and start sharing daily inspirations for fashion, food, weddings and lifestyle...with my furry children and wine making appearances along the way.  

I quickly realized how time consuming it actually is to be a blogger when you already have a full time job. So, I started with Instagram (which I was fine with because I also love to photograph and document). 


The below image is my first Mavelle Style Instagram post one year ago today! 

I still love this sweater as well as rock that fun statement necklace! 

After leaving the wedding and event design world, where I "played" and was creative everyday for 5 years, I needed this for me! Having Mavelle has been my creative outlet. A way to share what inspires me, what I am passionate about, what I love, and what I find inspiring and beautiful in my daily surroundings. For me, Mavelle has been a great way to connect with others who share the same passions as I do and I hope in some way, through Mavelle, I have done that for my fans. 

Getting Mavelle Style off the ground and running has been a slow progression because this year has also been full of the unexpected and the time consuming realities of family, work and life but I promise (mainly to myself) not to walk away because I have plans for Mavelle that go beyond Instagram or blogging. Today, I would not consider myself a blogger...but I do have a blog so that is a start and that is exactly what it is...a start. I guess you will have to stick around to see where I plan to go with this next.

I hope I have inspired you in one way or another, whether it be to try a new recipe or to try a new way to wear something that is already hanging in your closet. I look forward to continuing this journey with all of you. Thank you for your continued support and for inspiring me everyday!
