Top 10 Moments From 2018 & A Look At 2019


2018 was one of the best years ever, personally and professionally. It’s made me excited to see what 2019 has in store!

We say this every year, but WHERE DID THE TIME GO?

I can’t believe it’s officially 2019, and I’m internally freaking out a little bit. 2018 was such a great year for me, and I want this momentum to push into this new year. I’m not one to make resolutions or set ridiculous goals, but I do like to reflect on the previous year to see how I can continue to grow! Some are business related, some are funny, and some are personal. But all of these moments helped make 2018 AMAZING.

TOP 10 MOMENTS OF 2018

The rebrand

I kicked off 2018 with an announcement: Pink Champagne Problems was now officially The Champagne Edit! It’s been such a seamless transition, which makes me realize that rebranding was the best decision I could have ever made for my website! In June, I re-launched my site with a fresh new design and branding (thanks to Empress Themes and Chandler Grace)!

I started a new job

I know I’ve talked about this a lot in the last few months, but leaving Perry Ellis was NOT an easy decision for me. I wrote more about it here, here, and here.

I signed with a management agency

This was probably the biggest moment EVER for my blog. There weren’t many “cons” to signing with an agency, but there were definitely a lot of “pros”. Mostly, I kept telling myself that this would really free up some time for me to remain creative. Instead of playing bad cop all of the time, chasing payments, worrying about deadlines and approvals, I now just focus on capturing the content and passing off to my manager. It’s also nice to have someone in your corner who’s pitching you for collaborations, helping with the back end invoices, and more!

My blog income doubled from last year

This is something I’m really proud of. With a traditional 9-to-5 job, I didn’t think this would have ever been possible. But in 2018, it was.

I cut my hair

After like 2 years without a hair cut and keeping my hair pretty damn long…I decided to cut it! AND…about a week ago I CUT IT AGAIN. I haven’t shot any new looks with it yet, but you’ll see it soon around here;)

My family is healthy

THANK YOU SWEET BABY JESUS FOR THAT!

Seeing Wicked FOUR times this year

I know. The addiction is real. But getting to see my favorite Broadway show 4 times in 2018 alone was really cool. It’s truly such a great story line and I can’t and SHAN’T with Jessica Vosk — her voice just kills me.

I started to go back to SoulCycle religiously

After a small break up with SoulCycle (I left it for Equinox), I got back into the groove shortly before my birthday in July). And I honestly am SO happy I did. I’m back into a routine (double on Mondays and Wednesdays and 1 weekend class), found an amazing SoulSquad, and feel better than ever!

I went on my first SYB trip

I’ve been wanting to go on an SYB trip for a really long time, but was always too afraid to do it. I’m happy I pulled the trigger and went on my first trip to Miami. Now I need to book my 2019 adventure;)

We launched Elle’s Edit

Working with my best friend is such a fun thing. Elle has brought such amazing content to The Champagne Edit, and I’m so thankful for her. I love how much you all love her posts, and I’m excited that we’ll be continuing into 2019!

As for 2019…

I can only hope to continue this momentum and keep bringing you content that is helpful, inspiring, and connects us in more ways than just “shop my outfit”. I want to thank each and every one of you for being part of my journey. You’ll never know how much your support means to me!

CHEERS!


do it for the ‘gram

  • Can't keep my hands off @mr_letto when he's in his @revtown jeans😍🔥 Matt seriously LOVES his new jeans - he's typically really picky about sizing and stretch, but these live up to his standards👍🏻 And not only do I love these jeans because he looks great in them (and at $79, you can't beat the price), but also because they're a Pittsburgh based company🥰 Head to the link in my bio to get a pair for your man via @nordstrom! And for all my NYers, you can get a pair at Roosevelt Field😌 #revtownpartner #nordstrom
  • Okay, *MAYBE* I’m ready for Spring if it means I can pull out this baby again🤷🏻‍♀️👀 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Running around New York City 24/7 means that sometimes I forget to drink enough water...I know, NOT GOOD😥 On any given day, I'm running between the office, stepping out for a midday brand collaboration shoot, my favorite 6:30PM @soulcycle class, and wine with friends😧 With @drinkdripdrop, I can give my body what it needs with less water🙌🏻 I throw a bunch of these in my every day bag, so I can pour into my water bottle on the go!
