I wanted to thank you all for reading my simple, little ole blog for the last four years! Man, has it been that long?! I started Fashion Folio back in 2009 as a creative outlet to write about something I love so much, fashion! I felt at the time, as I still do, that you should never have to move somewhere else to do what you love to do. As a Colorado native, I wanted to be here, in Denver. After a semester of fashion merchandising school in San Francisco back in 2007, I decided I needed to move back home and take my chances. I think I was home for a day or so when a girlfriend and I decided to go out for a girls’ night downtown. I met my now husband! I also landed a paid fashion editorial gig with the now defunct This Week in Denver website. I have really enjoyed the opportunities that have come across my desk with Fashion Folio- tickets to local fashion shows, news about local designers, first dibs on sales, but a lot has changed singe 2009. Now married, a homeowner, a college grad and a new momma, I really want to take my writing more seriously and open it up to cover ALL of my interests, which can all be boiled down to one main thing- sharing my love of Denver and all the things that make this place so great.
So, let me be the first to introduce you to my new labor of love, Haleeb & Honey! Haleeb is milk in Arabic, my hubby is from Syria, and since becoming a momma I have realized that we all start off with the basics, milk. It provides our bodies with all the complexities of nourishment needed to grow, and our momma’s make it! Pretty incredible…So, Haleeb & Honey is meant to be a place to get your daily dose to help you continue to grow. As a challenge to myself to continue to do what I love to do, explore my city, try new restaurants, visit new places, style a new trend, meet a new friend, read a book, discover an artist or musical talent, and you can fill in the blanks too, I wanted a place to share the highlights with you all too. I love nothing more than to play tour guide around my dear Denver, so I hope you use this as your little pocket guide. If you are ever in town, look me up or shoot me a line!
If you are anything like me, you can’t resist a little something sweet to round out your day. Bring on the honey! I am reserving plenty of blog space on the new site for sprinklings of sweetness! I hope you will all follow along with me on the adventures about to unfold over on Haleeb & Honey!
I am so happy to launch just in time for the holidays! We have some great things coming, including a few GREAT giveaways from some of my favorite local boutiques!
Thanks so much for reading, returning, and sharing Fashion Folio over the years, and I’ll see you over on the new site!
