We’ve been blogging since our 11th grade year of high school. We are now in our 4th year of college. It’s crazy to think that we’ve had twinvibes for a while now and even though it comes off like we know what we’re doing, we don’t lol. After so many years of blogging on and off, we are still learning what we like and don’t like. We’re still learning each other’s angles, what time we should take pictures so that our melanin can pop severely, and choosing content people would actually want to see and read.  Though we are twins and have a very close relationship, we don’t always agree on everything and we are constantly learning how to adapt to each other’s styles.

People think we have it all together but we’re literally just going with the flow. For those who need advice to start any kind of blog or personal creative outlet, just do it. Planning is cool, but sometimes your planning can get in the way of you actually doing it. Once you've done that, determine who you’re actually doing it for. If you are solely doing it to get 100k followers and fame, you may fall short. If your reason behind it is genuine and if you put the work in, then your work will speak for itself and eventually, everything else will follow. Because in real life, everyone isn’t going to support you and your preference may not be everyone’s preference and that’s okay. Once you remember your reason for starting, none of that will matter. It does get discouraging at times to invest all of your time into a project you expect to take off to find out that not even your close friends read your blog, but when it comes down to it, keep swimming.

“New year, new me”, a statement used right when the new year rolls around to make self changes they weren’t able to make within the last year. Some people hate the “new year, new me” statement because they assume those people are putting up a front and won’t change at all and for those who have the same negative way of thinking. One, that’s none of your business. Two, you aren’t the New Year Resolution police who determines whether or not someone should change their old habits. Three, instead of being negative, support those who are making an effort to take on healthier habits, whether it is to grow mentally, spiritually or physically.

People use the new year as an opportunity to start over, to become a better person, and prepare for what the year has to come and to be honest, I think it’s a great idea. For someone to admit there’s a problem and is finding strength to seek change shows maturity. More often I see people plan to live a healthier life and use the new year to become more fit and healthy, but it is rare that I see people have New Year Resolutions that involve being more confident, which is just as important.

With social media accounts that determine how poppin you are depending on how many likes you get on a picture or how many followers you have, it’s obvious that confidence is something many people struggle with. Due to America’s lame beauty standards … you know, the ones we are constantly reminded of, those who have lighter skin, long, spiral curly hair pattern and those who are a lot skinnier are unfortunately seen as more beautiful, which is false af, being consistently confident can be very difficult. Instead of solely focusing on how you can better yourself mentally and spiritually, it becomes routine to constantly compare yourself with other people you see on social media. Like we mentioned before, in 2018 we aren’t comparing ourselves to anyone … ever, in any way. You are bomb and someone’s beauty isn’t an absence of your own. And for those who find that hard to believe, we put together a list of tips to boost your confidence for the New Year.

1. Leave the toxic people and relationships in 2017. How can you be your absolute best when you’re surrounded by negative people. Overtime, being around people who are negative will ultimately deter your personal growth. This year we're keeping quality in our corner. Quality friendships and relationships. If the people that you are surrounded by are not lifting you up or supporting you, leave them behind in 2017. This year you deserve to have genuine people that show you real, unconditional love and that will overall aspire you to grow as a human being.

2. No more doubting yourself. Like we mentioned in our previous blog post no more doubting your self worth, creativity, or beauty. As cliche as it sounds, everyone is beautiful in their own way and someone else’s beauty doesn’t take away from yours. Everyone has their own path and we are all where we’re supposed to be at this moment. Someone else’s success doesn’t take away from yours; we’ll all have our time. In the meantime work hard towards your goal until you get to where you want to be. Whatever you do this year, do it with confidence and consistency. 

3. Wear what you want. As a styling blog we always encourage people to wear whatever it is that makes you happy and comfortable. When you’re comfortable you’re confident. What looks good to you may not look good to other people and that is okay. You never know who you’re inspiring by just being you and wearing what you want. 

4. Take a break from social media. Don’t get me wrong; social media is a very resourceful tool when it comes to connecting with other individuals and content creators. But often times we let social media consume us. When we’re scrolling down our timelines we begin to question our beauty and compare ourselves to other people. That’s not hurting anyone but us. By taking a break from social media we have more time to explore and practice our crafts and practice self love.

New Years Eve should be filled with positive energy and spent with people you love along with those you expect to be with the next year. The things that come to mind when we think of New Years Eve is anything black, mesh, sequined, fur, and rhinestones. Every year we stay in the house for New Years Eve and the most we do is spend time with our family or work on our blog. Whether you choose to spend New Years Eve staying in the house or going out, you should feel confident and your outfit should be poppin regardless. 

As for New Years resolutions, 2018: No more comparing other peoples success to our own. It grows easy to compare other people's accomplishments to your own, especially when you see people your age doing better than you. Many times we question why things aren't happening for us the way they are happening for other people, but we have to constantly remind ourselves that everyones journey is going to be different. Rather than feeling discouraged, we plan to use those feelings of doubt as inspiration to work even harder. Instead of having the mindset of "Why aren't those things happening for me", we want to be happy for those who are finally getting the recognition they deserve and support them and in the mean time work harder until we see the results we're looking for.
