when one door closes...

I've both loved being a part of that role and been truly flattered that so many of you have enjoyed this blog.

And with that, I have come to a juncture where I must close one door to open another. This, I tell you with both a heavy heart and feelings of excitement for what is to come, is the last post you will you will come to see on Maritime Shopaholic. I started this blog almost 2 years ago expecting that only a few close friends might read about what I styles I was loving, what I was wearing and where I was doing in these outfits. Without much thought I choose an intended to be tongue-in-cheek title under which I would chronicle my own personal style, my fascination with the fashion industry (on both the small and large scale), as well as which shops and businesses I loved and wanted to support.

But as I mentioned in my previous post, 2011 was a busy year. With a little more life experience and another calendar year gone by, I've been pondering the best direction in which to take this blog. In order to make the most of time spent online and offline, I've decided to restructure my online presence. I'll still be supporting local fashion, designers and businesses through my involvement with Fashion Council Saint John, my role as blogger for the Brunswick Square fashion blog, as well as my personal tweets! I'll continue to blog about my personal style (outfits, favourite trends and producs, DIY projects) through Atlantic Style Diaries. I'll still be open to collaborating and working with brands and designers through that blog.

It was a tough decision to leave Maritime Shopaholic behind, but I will be spending more time with my loved ones, concentrating on my career, and taking a little extra time for me. Thank you for all the support over the last 2 years!
