A Milestone:

unnamed-8unnamed-5unnamed-6unnamed-9unnamed-7This weekend marked an important milestone in my career.  I started my blog seven whole years ago.  It’s kind of crazy that having an idea, a passion, the dedication and patience made cocoincashmere a reality.  I distinctly remember sitting in the Barnes & Nobles in Tribeca with my “Blogging For Dummies” book and tackling it page by page.  I built my blog myself, which seven years ago started on a Tumblr platform and was called lindsaybrookestyle.  Over the next several years I switched over to WordPress, rebranded my blog and named it cocoincashmere after my daughter Colette (whose nickname is Coco).  I haven’t stayed at the same job for seven years (five years was as close to it as I came when I was the Fashion and Accessories Editor at Niche Media), so it’s sort of an accomplishment for me that I’ve been doing this that long and have been loving every second of it.   It’s evolved as I’ve evolved and it’s all been a learning curve.  It’s been a platform for me to express myself, my style and what I’m loving these days.  A place for deals, steals and also the occasional venting session.  The caveat though, is that I couldn’t continue doing what I love if I didn’t have dedicated readers.  Nothing makes me happier than when somebody tells me they bought something that was featured or just simply that they read my latest post.  So THANK YOU!!! To another seven years! PS: If you ever hear of the best anything, or have a phenomenal something that should be shared, please drop me a line: lindsay@cocoincashmere.com.
