So, the day has finally arrived. After months of hard work, sleepless nights and nervous break downs, I’m finally able to reveal my secret project. Reading your guesses for the past few days has been really entertaining. Most of you thought I would be coming out with my own line of candles, which is by the way not happening, but some of you actually predicted the right thing, which is… I am launching my own online store!!!
This is something I’ve always had on my bucket list, but I haven’t told anyone or started thinking about it seriously until about a year ago, when my parents got sick and tired of me complaining how we don’t get any cool brands and cute stuff in my country, and suggested me to try to do something about it myself. And so it started. Six months later, I finally managed to come up with a name and started working on it. I thought that this would be a tiny uncomplicated project, but boy, was I wrong. Every single thing that could go wrong did, and I seriously thought my online store will never see the light of day.
I was planning to launch it in October, but here we are, in the middle of December, and things are still not completely done. However, all the important stuff seem to be working now and the store should function normally, so I think it’s time for the big reveal!
I’m sure you’re now dying to actually see the store, right? It’s called Destination Pretty and you can check it out here. I want it to be the place where you can get all kinds of pretty things, from makeup and jewellery to candles, so I hope every girl will be able to find something for herself. As of right now, I obvioulsy don’t have tons of different products, but they’re all chosen with love, haha. I like every single one of them, and I hope you will too. Also, my online store has two language options (Slovene & English) and offers worldwide delivery.
Please let me know what you think about my secret project now that you can actually see it and don’t forget to follow Destination Pretty’s social media accounts (facebook, twitter, instagram). Also, pretty please share my online store (and facebook page/twitter) with other people on your own blogs, social media and in real life. I would really appreciate it and be thankful to you until the rest of my life, because it’s really hard to get it out there with zero funds for advertising. 😀
Ohh, and one more thing. I want this to be my store as well as yours, so if you have any suggestions in terms of brands or products you would like to see on the site or maybe specific products from brands I already carry on the site, please drop me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let me know and I will try to make it happen. 🙂
P.S. Some people who already know about the store have been asking me what will now happen to my blog, because the reality is that the companies or online stores I’m talking about here have now become some sort of competitors of mine, so I think it would be best if I address this dilemma right here, right now. Bascially, my blog will stay exactly the same. I will keep writing about other brands and online stores, because I want to treat my blog and my online store as seperatelly as I can. My blog is my hobby and my store is my job. I will obviously continue using products from other brands as well, so why not share my thoughts on them with you? I’ve always been a very honest person, and I am not planning to change or become a sell out. Ever. Even if that means I’ll end up hurting my own business and income. Oh well. I can at least hope that people will keep appreciating my honesty, which I think is one of the most important parts of blogging that unfortunatelly many bloggers nowadays seem to lack…
