Welcome to the brand new WANDER ABODE! I’m so excited to start this new online journey, sharing my travels & home decor with you. I’m going to guess that most of you reading this used to follow @allglammedup, which has been around for about 7 years now. I’ve wanted to change the name of my blog for the past 3ish years, but never really knew what I should change it to or how to go about it. But a few weeks ago, I had a realization that it was time to move on from allGLAMMEDup… I’ve really outgrown it and felt like it just wasn’t me anymore. I have been changing and developing a lot as a person this past year or two and my passions and interests have shifted away from fashion. Don’t get me wrong–I still like shopping and wearing cute outfits, but just not as much as I used to. My passions are now photography and travel, which is what wander abode will be focused on, as well as a little home decor here and there (hence wander (travel) abode (home)).
I’ll be honest–I don’t know how consistent I’ll be posting in this space, as I’ve recently realized how amazing it feels to not be constantly glued to my phone and computer. That’s another part of this whole change–I started not paying as much attention to my phone and was actually able to be present with my loved ones rather than worrying about how my latest Instagram post is doing. It’s been so refreshing!
I also kinda had an epiphany that sharing pictures of my outfits was kinda… meaningless. I wasn’t changing anyone’s life by telling you where I got my newest dress or oversharing about the amazing Nordstrom sale. I want this space to be inspirational and really make you (and myself) think about what really matters in life.
