Guess who’s bizzack?!

After a loooooooooong absence — which I apologize for — I’m finally back to blogging and feeling more inspired than ever!

To ensure that I don’t leave you for this long again, I’m switching up the format of THIS IS ARIENNE to give it a more streamlined feel and to make it easier for me to update when I’m so busy I can’t even see straight.

At least once a week, I’m going to hit you with 5 things that have inspired, intrigued or interested me. Those 5 things can be anything from songs to lipsticks to fellow bloggers to amazing photos to my best outfits.

I plan to keep T.I.A. full of my personal adventures and, of course, full of my voice and perspective and will break from the Fab Five format every now and then. But, to make it feel more like a hobby than a chore — or another thing to tick off of my never-ending to-do list — I’m ready to try a simpler approach.

I love to get your feedback, so let me know what you think. Welcome back — I hope you enjoy it! That said, here’s the first Fab Five of the new T.I.A.: My favorite Instagram snaps from the week. — xxAT
