One Year Later...

It has been 365 days, 85 post, 42 outfits, and countless amounts of support later and I am here to celebrate Syd and the City still going strong.
I am so happy and grateful I can write this blog post.  

This has been the most exciting thing I’ve done for myself and I really love it and I’m so grateful God allowed me to start when I did. Blogging was something I always wanted to do, but I never got this far in all my prior failed attempts. And I never have been in such an amazing position to do it than now. #Godsplan  

This journey has allowed me to be in a world I only dreamed of. I’ve worked with companies, attended events, and have been welcomed into a fun community of other women with similar dreams. The community has been one of the best parts if I’m honest because 1) I love women supporting women, and 2) It's helpful to know there are others trying to figure it out just like me. I don't believe in going at things alone, in a “I don't need anyone” way, so it's really comforting to know I have people supporting me.

Whether you read every blog post, and I love you if you do, or just skim every once in a while, thank you. I’m grateful for your support and really appreciate you taking time out of your day to like, share, read, or comment something to lil ole me. God has put something in my heart and I want to give it my all because it deserves it. I think anything that makes you happy deserves effort and Syd and the City is getting it all!

If you've stuck around this long, please get ready as we go to the next level! Y'all know how the saying goes, new year, new me ;)

Your Faves 

My Faves


  1. I love that you are so dedicated! Just a suggestion, maybe work a little more on your photos and angles. Some of them are not the most flattering and the pictures are not edited in the best way. Also, some of the hairstyles and outfits make you look way older. Other than that great job with trying to execute your vision!

    1. Hi!

      Thanks for noticing my dedication! I appreciate your suggestions as well, because I am working on learning my angles a bit more. But as for the editing of my pictures, hair, and outfits, I enjoy those and will probably keep them similar since that's how I actually look off the blog! That's just me being true to me.


  2. Hi Syd,

    I have been admiring your blog and the progression. I want to encourage you. All opinions fall into criticism or constructive critique. Take what you can from both, but YOU always make the executive decision when you select YOUR content. Even the angles *wink wink*. What I like most is that you are you and that everything is a reflection of what YOU want to see.

    All the best on your journey,


    1. Hey!

      First, I'm so sorry for not responding to this sooner! I just noticed it, so my apologies. Secondly, Thank you soon much! I really appreciate your kind words and I will be mindful of this advice! I really appreciate this <3
