In case you missed it, we said so long to Chacos and Chanel and a bright + cheery hello to a new chapter in the Riley Brahm blog world.
Welcome to Yes, Please aka YesPleaseDaily.com!
Towards the end of the C&C era, I felt suffocated/trapped/drained. I love the blogging world, I love sharing my life with you guys, meeting new people and working with wonderful brands but I felt no attachment to ChacosandChanel. I had grown out of the name, many brands I was working with didn’t even know what a ‘chaco’ was and to be honest I rarely wore them (+ my sweet Grandma could not pronounce Chacos to save her life, ha!). I had so much to share but felt constrained within the brand of Chacos and Chanel.
I thought long and hard about myself. Mapping out my goals for this year, my goals for this blog, my 1, 3 and 5 year plan. One thing was certain, this blog was a part of me and not something I was ready to give up.
Thinking about what was important and which parts of my life I wanted to share with you guys, I was able to narrow down some things..
- I wanted a space where I could share every aspect of my life, not just fashion. I love to cook. I often am rearranging or creating new pieces for our home. I like to try new things with my hair and make up. And some days I just want to have a little girl talk.. maybe about blogging tips, ways I conquer the grocery store or how I (an extremely unorganized girl) stays organized living with an OCD
- I knew I wanted to incorporate my personality in the brand, as well as principles I try to follow on my day to day life. I’m outgoing, I love to try new things, 99% of the time I see the glass half full and I believe life is better lived when you’re actually living it. I believe in almost always saying yes, always being positive and being nice to everyone.
Yes, Please! was born and I couldn’t be more excited anxious, nervous, scared, eager, happy, thankful to get this party started!
