A Heroine is Fashionably Light

Hey there. You’re reading my first post as Fashionably Light AND Heroine Training TOGETHER. [Um. Can you tell I’m excited?]

I’d like to tell you my story.

Since departing from Boston to attend university in the UK, I have been paring down my things, bit by bit. Some people call this practice “minimalism”. I noticed that having fewer things to carry not only made it easier to travel, but also made my head feel clearer, and, strangest of all, made my wardrobe more stylish.

About a year ago, I wrote down the story in book form. When I got to the end, I faced the big question: What, for me, is the point of minimalism?

My answer: to be my own heroine.

And so the book was titled Fashionably Light: Becoming My Own Heroine.

The book was an obvious project for me. I was practically born an aspiring authoress. The next step was trickier, and one thought I just couldn’t shake was Harry Potter Life Coaching. It started as a joke: haha that would be awesome yeah right. The more I fake-laughed about it, the more I realised that I actually seriously wanted to do this. So I did.

From there, Heroine Training snowballed into Letters from Jane Austen and oh, I have so many more ideas on the horizon, just you wait.

And so I concluded my Fashionably Light journey with another form of decluttering: merging my new business with the passion project of a blog that started it all.

To the heroines in training: Remember that every step you take counts, and sometimes we take the scenic route. Bask in the luxury of having been there.

To the readers: Thank you for joining me in this adventure, for sharing your stories with me, and for being my friend.
