Happy Monday everyone! I am SO excited for Monday this week (crazy, I know), because I have a ton of new ideas and projects and content that I get to start sharing with you. I've taken the last week to brainstorm and come up with a new direction for this blog, and here it it. I want it to be a real place, one that inspires and connects with all of you. There will be a combination of inspired quotes, life hacks, style posts, entertaining tips, etiquette advice, plus a lot more. What makes it real, however, is that this is me. What you see is what you get, and I've been wanting to put my own spin on what Something Charming means to me.
The first change is going to be with Monday's Mantra. Don't worry, you'll still get your weekly dose of inspiration here, but it's going to be a little bit different. I've decided to start asking my favorite bloggers what their Word for the Week is, and to share a quote that exemplifies that word.
The first Words with Bloggers post comes from a dear friend of mine, and a blogger that I look up to so much!

What does "Bloom" mean to you?
To bloom is to become a beautiful soul. It is taking something that was hidden from the world, and opening it up for all to see. Whether that's you breaking out of your comfort zone, encouraging or inspiring someone with your journey, or making a difference in the life of someone around you, when you bloom—you become a light to the world.Why did you choose this word?
We can't always control where we end up or what's happening in our lives. Sometimes we underestimate our potential & beauty. And sometimes we just have "one of those days." But no matter what—if we make the decision to BLOOM—we can change everything, and you never know how many people you'll reach along the way.Aunie really nailed it with the first word of the week. I truly believe that your happiness depends on your mindset, and that we can make the right decisions to keep ourselves happy. Circumstances are one thing; it really is all about how you deal with those circumstances that make the difference.
