I wanted to update you guys on the blog and talk about an important topic that hits close to home. As many of you have noticed, the blog has been inactive for a couple of years, but I have good news! I will be starting it up again and posting the submissions many of you have contributed during my absence!! I have not forgotten about you! I am sorry it has taken so long for me to respond to your inquiries and post your ingenious DIY tutorials. You guys are awesome and I want to continue sharing your ideas!
Which brings me to my important announcement related directly to why I have been gone for so long. I have been working diligently on a campaign called #EndTheStigma that aims to spread awareness and put an end to the social stigma surrounding mental health. The reason why I haven’t been posting is because I myself have been struggling with major depressive disorder. Because of my disorder, I started to neglect all of the things that used to bring me joy, including DIY Fashion. Fortunately, I am starting to get better and I finally have the motivation to kickstart the blog once again.
The #EndTheStigma campaign is simple: change your Facebook profile picture to the icon above (or one of the cover photos on the official website) to show your friends struggling with mental illness that you care and that they are not alone.
