LIFESTYLE: Turning 22 + Life Update + Why I Began Blogging

Rebecca Folsom

     hey y'all,


I can 110% say that I'm feelin' 22 today because IT'S MY BIRTHDAY and I'm turning 22! Typing this blog post as I pile on the wrinkle cream and lather on the anti-aging face masks. haha kidding but not really.

I know 22 isn't that old but hey...I'm not getting any younger here and I'm def not ready to get or look old! Let me stay 22 forever!!

I had originally planned to do 22 Facts About Me and 22 Things I've Learned but I just wasn't really feeling it when I sat down to write it sooo I decided to share some photos in one of my favorite outfits, give a life update (lots to update y'all on), and finally share why I began blogging. 

So here we are...a year after I began Styled by Becca. I can't believe all the support I've received over the past year and that over 8400 people follow my blog and actually care about where I travel, advice I have to give, and of course my outfits. I'm incredibly grateful and love each and every one of you!

I began this blog as just something to add to my resume to stand out to future employers but what I've found along the way are tons of super encouraging women and even some new friends. I found myself, learned what my style was, and how to put myself out there despite the fear of rejection.

I've loved meeting new people and connecting with different brands. I think my favorite collaboration to date would def have to be with Disney World. If you know me, you know I'm obsessed with all things Disney. I literally turn into a kid every time I visit there. You know how you see the videos of grooms crying when they see the bride for the first time?! Yeah...that's me when I see Cinderella's castle at Disney...I always tear up a bit. haha oops. So the fact that I get to work with them not once but twice on a collaboration, makes me sooo excited. If you haven't heard, I'll be heading to Disney World in November to film some videos, create blog posts, and most importantly have fun!

As I began my senior year at college this past August, (seriously where has the last 3 years gone?!) I took a moment and thought about all of the amazing stuff I've done the past year and it's all thanks to hard work and blogging. I mean I've gone to DC and styled a shoot with Men's WearHouse, worked on a collaboration with Target, and got a chance to style women with some new wardrobes and now I have some super exciting news. *cue the drumroll* Styled by Becca will be branching out soon and I'll be opening an online boutique, Shop Becca! I'm hoping to have it up and running in November so y'all can do some Christmas shopping!! I've given some updates on my Shop Becca page. 


One thing I'm a big advocate for is writing down or typing out your goals and scratching them out as you fulfill them. I mean I can't be the only one who loves making lists, (especially to do lists) completing the task, and then marking out the task once I've completed it. Such an invigorating feeling, am I right?! I've listed some of my goals below:

1. Hit the 5,000 mark on Instagram.

2. Open Shop Becca.

3. Graduate college.

4. Finally give up sodas and unhealthy food. (this will def be the toughest one)


So cheers to 22 y'all! I'm off to get my nails done and drink margaritas tonight! Isn't it funny how things change? When I turned 21, I was getting ready to go out and now all I want to do is stay in, wear comfy clothes, and drink margaritas with friends and ya know, I'm totally okay with that! Thanks again for letting me play dress up and share it all with y'all! Here's to another year full of fashion, blogging, and travel!
