Hi there. Thank you so much for dropping by and checking out the new and improved Lily Like. It has been ages since I've made any major changes to my blog. The reason why was that I actually really enjoyed the way my blog looked for a very long time. I loved the layout, I loved the header and I loved working on it. But you know how it goes: all of a sudden you feel uninspired and everything you once loved feels boring af. Well, that's what happened to me. I felt like I've really outgrown my previous blog. I've matured. Not only when it came to my personal life, but also with my fashion sense and, of course, my blog style. I needed something new, that would reflect my personality, vision and attitude to life. Instead of updating my blog every day, I rather wanted to create helpful, inspiring and beautiful content YOU would actually enjoy. Honestly, this almost feels like a huge 'closet clean', but then for my blog, haha!
"I want to create content that actually helps YOU out. Lily Like is all about working hard, reaching your goals and blossoming like a lily. And this blog is going to help you out when it comes to beauty, fashion, lifestyle and law by sharing my personal stories, experiences and tips. A community filled with empowering girlbosses ready to take over the world, that's what I would want to achieve!"
So other than this completely new layout, what can you expect on the new Lily Like? Let me tell you:
- Fashion: Of course, the good ol' OOTDs will always be a huge part of my blog. But I also want to incorporate more helpful style guides, such as my new Fashion Guide or the How To Style series I just launched. Investing in basic, high-quality pieces and having a couple of trendy items on the side is my new philosophy when it comes to fashion. I want to inspire you guys to do the same as well!
- Beauty: I love beauty, especially when it comes to product photography. I want to create beautiful photos and wearable looks, perfect for everyday wear to law school, uni or work! I also want to incorporate more about skin care and the skin issues I've struggled with.
- Lifestyle: My main focus in the lifestyle section will be travel, interior and food. Cute hotspots, that perfect minimal interior (with marble and rose gold accents) and healthy veggie/vegan food is the way to go!
- Law: One of my most loved topics on my blog, for sure. I love writing about my experience as a law student and my day-to-day activities. I want to focus on a bigger audience though. Now that I'm a double degree student (I also study Philosophy now), I feel like 'Law' needs to become 'Uni' or 'University'. I would love to hear your feedback on that as well!
Also, you've probably noticed I haven't been updating as regularly on my blog as I used to. It's a shame (honestly, I still have SO many blogpost ideas in my head I want to create asap), but doing a double degree and running a webshop and Youtube channel at the same is challenging. I still have to get used to the immense workload I have going on at the moment, so that's why I've been slacking a bit blog wise. I'm sure I will get it eventually! My goal is to post 5 blogposts a week and 2 videos a week. I have my priorities straight though - I know when I just really have to skip a day and focus on my studies. I hope you understand.
Another thing: I've been really active on my social media lately. I guess it's my way to compensate my slight absense on my blog lately. You can follow me on Snapchat (click!) or on Instagram (click!) for your daily updates on moi. I'm still not sure if you enjoy watching my Snapchats or my Instagram Stories more, so at the moment I'm updating both.
Conclusion: there's a lot of new shit that's going to happen with Lily Like. And I'm excited. I hope you are too! Let me know your thoughts, feels and feedback in the comments down below. I love you guys, my #lawfam.
