Hmm….after this long it’s harder then I imagined to start writing this post. Let me start by saying that there has been so much happening in both my personal and professional life and even though I was active on social media I have to admit that I neglected my blog for quite some time. To all of you who kept coming back to check up on me (I still do look at my Google Analytics from time to time 😀 ), I am very grateful and very sorry for not updating. But here I am now, and I will do my very best to write new posts whenever I can.
So much has happened, so I’ve decided to write a life update and tell you all about new exciting things in my life that happened in the past year as well as reveal some future projects that are going to happen in 2019.
First of all, after almost 6 years of sharing our lives, I got married on the 4th of September 2018 to the love of my life, my best friend and my biggest support. We had a very intimate wedding with just our family and closest friends and it was a perfect day filled with love and joy. He is the man behind the camera and thanks to him I am able to do this job I love so much and for all those amazing pics I have, all credit goes to him 🙂 He is just the most wonderful man and I am grateful every single day to have him in my life and I feel so lucky to call him my husband. And If you find me to be looking a bit chubby in these pics, its because at that point for almost five months I was carrying the greatest gift he has even given me – A BABY!
Pregnancy was the most amazing journey. I was very lucky to have a smooth ride all the way through it. For the entire 9 months period I had no troubles, I was very active and I felt great. There was no throwing up, dizziness, crazy mood swings and I haven’t gain too much weight. The last few weeks were a bit harder because I was swollen up so finding a comfortable position to sleep was a challenge. Also, I was unable to tie my shoes 😀 Becoming a mom was something I always wanted and my greatest wish came through. There are no words to describe my happiness when I found out I was pregnant. Feeling those little kicks was the most exciting thing ever and the entire journey was a life-changing experience in the most beautiful way possible. I was getting so impatient near to the end, I just wanted to meet my baby girl and hold her in my arms. And that finally happened on the 9th of January 2019.
She is just so perfect. Not only is she the most beautiful baby girl ever, but she is also so good and not a crybaby at all. She just sleeps and eats all day long…and makes goofy faces 😀 Delivery was not as easy going as my pregnancy….after hours and hours of contractions, I finally had to undergo an emergency C-section. But I am all recovered now and ready to get back to work, because all I do is now for her and I want to make her proud of me. Speaking of work…..
I finally have my YouTube channel!!! This was something I wanted for so long and I’ve written about that desire in the past but now it became a reality. I worked very hard on my videos to make them different and give a new approach to makeup tutorials, reviews, hauls etc. I always wanted to be a part of
I’ve combined my passion for makeup and video editing and made myself another creative outlet. I love and enjoy every step of my video creating process and if you watch my vids you’ll see that it is a long process, but It’s all worth it. I’ve put my heart and soul into this channel and I am hoping to improve with every new video and put all my ideas into reality. My YouTube channel has become my happy place and I am hoping it will also become one for all the makeup lovers out there because I am planning to continue doing that for years to come and grow my audience there as well.
Of course, I’ll keep working on my Instagram, so make sure to follow me there for daily updates 🙂
I am beyond excited to share a project I’ve been working on that is coming very soon. It’s my street style clothing line! Yes, you’ve heard it right! I can not wait to make it public, but you’ll have to wait for a bit longer. It is a collaboration with my sister and my best friend and we are so happy with the collection. It will firstly be only available in Serbia, but hopefully, very soon we will be able to ship worldwide so stay tuned for that. Once we publish the line, I will make a dedicated post and showcase all of the fabulous clothes we’ve designed!
I am also working on an e-book for my fellow bloggers and influencers to share all the tips and tricks I’ve learned in these past years doing this job. I really want to share the business behind being a blogger and tell you what it takes to make it in this industry. From how to present yourself to brends, build a media kit, get on PR lists and get sponsorships down to basics on how to build your website, improve your photography skills, how to take products photos for clients and of course how to build an engaged audience! There will be plenty more information, but you’ll just have to wait and see 🙂
I am also planing on doing a lot more on Youtube! Makeup will still be the Number 1 thing going on of course, but I want to incorporate some lifestyle vids as well, especially to
These are just a few things that are coming next, but who knows where life will take me during this year and what opportunities will come my way….hopefully you’ll all stay with me and see me grow!
Lot’s of Love, J.J.
