Jan 2014: I put down my papers and started to serve my notice period.
Feb 2014: saw me do a variety of different posts, I had a Corallista inspired look, some reviews and and some LOTDs. Graduation day was a bit emotional for me because I felt like I was graduating again 10 years later.
May 2014: April 30th was my last working day officially and from May1st I was s free bird.
I really pushed myself to work hard on the blog and I had a 30 posts in that one month. That is a whopping number! All the clicking pictures and compiling and editing was so worth it. My audience started to grow.
July 2014: I started a new series called Avatar and it has really made me to look at different ways to wear different pieces of clothing. Something that I have been doing ever since.
Sept 2014: I wore different styles of saris for each day of Navrathri and it was so much fun. There was a lot of work that went into putting together each look, but everyone loved it!! It really brought out the true meaning of Ishtyle Awhile
I also had the opportunity to attend ZA Beauty School which was a one day workshop on skincare.
Oct 2014: www.ishtyleawhile.blogspot became ishtyleawhile.com. This was a huge step for me and I am so happy that I took that plunge. My blog has been taken so much more seriously and I have taken the blog a lot more seriously as well.
I also had some guests posts on my blog in October and I started writing for The Metro Beauty,
I hosted my first ever sponsored giveaway which was an Instagram giveaway.
I also attended a MAC techniques workshop. October was one busy month.
Nov 2014: I had a series of giveaways and one was sponsored by a Singapore based shop called The Dancing Jewels. I started a new series called I Spy. Basically November was all about celebrations.
Dec 2014: I did a whole bunch of LOTDs. I actually managed to schedule posts for the entire December way in advance. That is something I was really proud of.
I got interviewed for Smart Indian Women.
On a personal note I wrote the CSIR NET for Lectureship and am now awaiting the results.
All in all 2014 was a very successful year for IshtyleAwhile and for me.
What does 2015 hold? It holds the promise of change.
I will writing exams in May. This will be for MA literature so there is a lot of reading for that which needs to happen.
I will continue writing for The Metro Beauty.
And IshtyleAwhile will continue to grow into a one stop destination for the average Indian woman who is trying to find her way int his fashion crazy world, because I believe that style is what you make of it.
How was 2014 for all of you?
P.S. I start a new job from today. Part time teacher at a school :)
