A couple of years ago my mum decided to throw a Thanksgiving lunch even though it’s not really a holiday we celebrate here in Australia or even in Brazil. Before eating, we went around the table and everyone said one thing they were grateful for. I scanned my very long mental list, and while there were many things I could have said, I ended up settling for “I’m thankful for changes, and for knowing that nothing ever stays the same”.
Growing up, my one wish was for things to stay just like they were. There was nothing I hated more than change. Knowing everything has an expiration date – good or bad, it doesn’t matter – can be really terrifying, but the older I get the happier I am that I never got my wish. Looking back I couldn’t be more thankful for the times my mind changed or the times life surprised me and led me down unexpected paths. It was all for a reason, and it brought me to this moment.
That’s why I’m crazy excited about this new chapter for MissMatchy. It’s been a long, long time coming and it’s finally here. It’s more than just a new layout, though. It means a new direction for the content I post here, still very fashion and beauty-focused, but now also encompassing all the different facets of who I am. I’ll be writing about books, music and food too, there will be more photos, videos (subscribe to my new Youtube channel!) and giveaways… I can’t wait! Make sure to check back every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for new content. If you have any feedback on what you want to see here, just sound off in the comments below. I’d love to get you know you better!
For those of you who have been reading through all the different blogs and phases, thank you so much. It means more than you know. For everyone who’s new, welcome! I can’t wait to share with you what the future will bring. Here’s to embracing change and coming out better on the other side of it. Cheers! 🍸
