well, here we are, everybody. welcome to sunshine soul! after months without blogging, i’m finally back on the grind with new posts every week… but, as you probably have figured out by now, at a new location. how fancy, huh?

if you are an OG and followed when words fly,Β i love you and welcome back !! butΒ if we haven’t formally met, my name’s abby, and i’m a dreamer who’s only slightly obsessed with writing and yellow. you can read a bit more about me here.

there are undoubtedly a few questions that need answering, so!! we’re going to do a quick q&a!! *fingerguns*

why start a new blog ?

starting this march, i took a break from blogging to just kinda breathe. my goals and priorities had shifted so much in the past few months, and i’d even taken my first job. taking a rest from blogging was pretty much critical in retaining my sanity.

coming back to the keyboard was difficult at first. as overused as it sounds, i’ve changed a lot in just a few months. the things that i’d write pages upon pages about now seemed impossible to even think about. it was only when i started writing about things that interest me now that i could really write again. and so, sunshine soul was born !!

will when words fly continue ?

alas, my friends. when words fly has sadly reached its end. this also has to do with my priorities and goals changing. i love writing fiction, but it’s not something i want to do forever. and that’s okay !! i’m still learning who i am and what god’s plan for my life will be. in the meantime, i’m going to do what makes me happiest — which, for now, means writing this blog!

what is sunshine soul about ?

to put it simply, sunshine soul is a lifestyle blog centered around productivity, style, and the minimalistic life. sunshine soul is all about falling in love with a simple lifestyle. and, you know me, so of course i’ll still throw in a few blogging posts and how-to’s every once in a while.

where else can you find sunshine soul ?

go follow @sunshinesoullifestyle on instagram !!! it’s bound to be full of aesthetics, ootd’s, and behind-the-scenes blogging. at the moment, i’m still debating using youtube, so stick around and we’ll see if that’s something to pursue πŸ˜‰

for now, i’m really just happy to finally be launching! iT’s bEeN fOrEvEr mY dUdEs!!! if you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask away in the comments. thank you for being a part of sunshine soul !!

  6. Reblogged this on When Words Fly and commented:

    hello, friends !!! long time no see, right? it’s been a long time but !! i have returned to blogging !! but.. not here
    (yes, it is panic time.)
    after a lot of consideration and breaks to stress-binge ninjago, i finally decided to swap blog locations and try something a little different. this post should explain everything. so yeah, i guess it’s time to introduce you to sunshine soul !
    (oh and like follow and stuff, too. that helps a lot. love youuu)


  7. WHOO-HOO, YOU’RE BACK!!! I don’t follow that many productivity blogs, but I follow a TON of YouTube productivity channels, so I’m so excited to see posts about this – from you!! Glad to see you’re back!


      1. I follow Abbiee, AmandaRachLee, tbhstudying, studytee, studyquill, and a few others! A lot of them are studying channels, though, and don’t post strictly productivity and stuff like that. πŸ™‚ You?


  8. love love love the happiness and sunshine and yellow themes ❀ I've been totally into sunflowers this year!! Can't wait to see your new posts, Abby


  9. I love your new blog! Sad to see When Words Fly go, but it seems time for new beginnings. I’ve relocated as well! Keep on blogging about what you love! ❀️ 😊


  10. It’ll be sad to see When Words Fly go, but this heralds a new season in life! You rock, girl! I can’t wait to see what this blog brings ✨✨✨


  11. Eeek! Welcome back Abby, I’ve missed your posts and Ninjago GIFs!!
    Ohh awesome, your blog is now yellow! Yellow’s my favorite color too, but it’s so hard to get the ‘just right’ kind of yellow, or else it looks sickly or kills your eyes 😯 But you managed to pull it off just right!!


      1. YES!! πŸ’›
        Haha yes!! I’m hoping to one day make my blog yellow, but I have yet to find the absolute perfect yellow for it.
        Ohh it’s tough. The darker ones can be pretty gross but also ew looking, but the super super bright ones can hurt your eyes or have this weird…I dunno, tint to it?? I think my favorite kind of yellow is on the brighter side of the yellow spectrum πŸ˜‚ It always takes this huge speech to carefully explain to everyone my EXACT favorite color πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚


  12. Whether it’s When Words Fly or Sunshine Soul, I’m just glad you’re still in the bloggisphere, friend! #MuchRespect for realizing the past vision just wasn’t for you and having the courage to grow with it. It’s hard to have your passions change, and even harder to admit it to others. Keep spreading your awesomeness and yellow vibes, and know that I am SO READY FOR IT, whether it’s writing or lifestyle or just plain you. I can’t wait to see where this thing takes you! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›


      1. WELL I MISSED YOU TOO!! You’re a pretty cool kid, ya know. asdfghlkjdlhd yourself. πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›

        (Yes, more yellow hearts. They’re very necessary.)


  13. Hiii Abby! I’m sorry I wasn’t around when your blog launched but I was having my own hiatus!! Anyway, I’m so excited for you and your blog. It’s so pretty and lovely; the yellow is really killing it 😍
