My Purple Scarf!!!

Hello There!
My name is Jazmin Mac and welcome to My Purple Scarf.
If you can’t tell I did some updates to my blog. It has been quite a while since I did an actual post, but don’t you worry, there will be more to come. Being honest, I had been focusing on other adventures, while I was working on these other things, I decided I needed to revisit my first love. I have missed you all so much, and thank you for sticking with me.
With the relaunch of My Purple Scarf, I wanted to incorporate some new things. For example, I am obsessed with working out (and work out clothes of course) it only seems fitting to add a fitness portion to my blog. I also wanted to incorporate the crazy antics Frank and I go through.  I am sure you will love it… he is crazy (I am not, I promise).
Overall, I hope you all enjoy the changes and all the new posts that will be coming in the near future.

Follow Your Dreams

Over the weekend, while was working on some upcoming posts, I thought to myself how much I love blogging. Finding content to share with you all may be one of my favorite things to do. Which sparked up the idea for this post, “How did I get into blogging?”

If you read the About Me section in my Bio, then you know I studied fashion merchandising. I worked many years in retail, but, needed to find a more lucrative career in order to support myself. In this career I became bored and needed a creative outlet so I decided to start a blog and stick with what I know and love, which is fashion. When I came up with this brilliant idea blogs were not that popular, but they were on a steady rise especially with the rise of social media.

I honestly started out doing it as just something fun to occupy my time. Over the years, I started to get more into it and my passion began to grow. I still work at my other job, and I treat this blog as a part-time job. I actually schedule time throughout the day to work on projects and post.

One thing I want to share with you all out there. If you have a vision or an idea, go with it. I can attest, there is nothing like doing something you love. If you love it, you will find amazing joy in doing it. This will only make you happier in life. Which is what I strive for every day.

Let me know if you all have any tips, advice, or even questions about following you dreams.

New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year!!!! With the new year comes all the new year resolutions! I wanted to share with you all my resolutions… so here we go!

large

Get Fit: I know this is cliche but I am serious. Typically, I go to the gym about once a week. My resolution is to start going three to four times a week. I would like to go back to my training schedule for the wedding or close to it.

Post regularly on Youtube and My Purple Scarf: This has been my resolution for the past couple of years. This year I plan to really focus to make my blog as great as it can be. I am really passionate about what I do here and on youtube. I feel like it is time to start applying myself more than what I have been in the past.

Keep the House Clean: I have learned that life is so much easier when it is organized. Considering how much I love to wake up in the morning to a clean home, and go to bed to a clean home. I figured I should do what it takes to make those moments achievable. Also, when it is time to clean it’s not an all day activity, because little has been done over time.

Journal: Journaling is my favorite way to spend time with God. It gives me the opportunity to get things off my chest, pray for people, and study the bible. I like to use devotional books as well as the bible app when studying the Bible. It’s a great way to express yourself while drawing closer to God. Coming from a person who doesn’t show a lot of outward expression of emotions, writing down how I feel and giving to to God to handle makes life so much easier.

Save More Money: I recently took a finance class at my church and I discovered I was not saving enough to meet my life goals. In the future I want to buy a new home as well as rent my current house. The only way to do that is save save save. Plus I also want to have the recommend six months of living expenses (not just bills) in saving before I even think about buying a new house.
