A whole decade has flown by.. and everyone's posting their highlights on their IG stories. Siempre became live officially January 2014, so now six years have passed. Within those six years, Siempre was sold at Revolve Clothing, Pac Sun, Hobie Surf Shop, Dolls Kill, Peppermayo, and other boutiques. Siempre has been in publications such as Vogue, Comsopolitan, Seventeen Magazine, Sports Illustrated Swim, InStyle, Just Jared, and may other magazines. Siempre has been worn on celebs such as Gigi Hadid, Yolanda Hadid, Shay Mitchell, Chantel Jeffries, and numerous influencers. So those were the achievements that were accomplished in less than six years. We hit our highest mark in sales in 2019.
When I first wanted to start Siempre Golden in college, I was burning with a fervor and passion. I would daydream about it every single day to start it.. however, even with all these achievements, I feel empty currently. I think that it's human to feel this way at times. To try to feel full with things outside of ourselves such as with a career, money, success, material goods, or with lovers is not the way to fulfill oneself. I've tried every distraction such as busying myself with work, purchasing a Chanel bag, emotional eating, getting drunk with friends, or going on meaningless dates. None of those things helped me fill this void I have. Being active such as going to pilates, boxing, or playing volleyball was fun but I didn't feel like this emotional void was filled.
I want 2020 to be a healthy year where I fulfill myself, value myself, really love myself as much as possible, and to do things that make me feel happy. For instance, I feel the happiest when I connect with customers and the people that follow Siempre on social media. I love talking about life lessons, trials and tribulations, and really connecting with people on a personal and deeper level. I love being out in nature, hiking, looking out at the ocean, and traveling.. That's what really fuels me, and makes me feel alive and inspired. I realized writing is therapeutic and helps too! I hope this blog helped you not feel so alone if this is something you've been going through as well..
I'm here for you, if you ever want to talk!
To living a happier and healthier life in 2020! x
