Blackbough Goals for 2020

     Can you believe it, it’s not only a new year but also a new decade! And instead of sulking over what happened or didn’t happen last year, it’s better to go hard on your goals for 2020 and make sure you reach them. If you’re still unsure about your goals and resolutions this coming year, here are some suggestions that we ourselves from the team are planning to do!

1. Go Green

We only have one planet and sadly and we all need to work together to make it a better and greener place. Small things and changes can create a big impact, so this year, we’re opting to switch to reusable utensils and straws. We love ordering takeout in the office, so we’ve decided we’re skipping the disposables! Refusing fast fashion and saying no to plastic straws whenever you can go a long way!

2. Live a Healthier Lifestyle

This one may have been on our list for years but in 2020, it’s time to actually commit! We’re adding more veggies to our diet, squeezing in a 45 minute workout four times a week, and walking whenever it’s possible. Oh and of course we’re remembering the magical number 8 - both in glasses of water and hours of sleep!

3. Go on a Trip with Friends

There’s so much of the world to explore and we can’t wait to book a trip with our friends - and neither should you! While we’re all busy being #girlbosses in our own right and working hard for those dreams, making time for your friends and planning an epic getaway should be part of this year’s goals! It’ll be the perfect time to bond with your girls, make new memories and snap that shot in your hottest Blackbough ‘kini! You can read about our dream destinations on our previous blog post here but our current fave is still Siargao, Philippines!

4. Learn a New Skill

There are so many new things we’ve been wanting to try but never got around to. This year, we’re finally doing it and we do believe that it’s never too late for anything! Everyone should start to learn at least one new skill: whether it be baking, learning another language or even dance lessons. There are so many classes out there, both online and in the real world, so there’s really no excuse not to give it a go! No pressure on being a total master of it, what’s important is that you get that foot in the door!

5. Conquer A Fear

We all have our own fears, but this new year is the perfect time to conquer them. One of us is completely afraid of heights, another is totally scared of cats. Whatever your fear is, there’s no better time to get over those and live more - let the FOMO take over and make the jump!

What are your goals in 2020? 

Good Stuff from the Philippines

Our newly-released Good Stuff and Summer Romance collections are close to our hearts–and we’re excited to tell you why! Material is always an important consideration when designing our pieces, and we thought it would be a great opportunity to share some local culture with our international audience… in the form of textiles from our home in the Philippines.

Happy Earth Day from Blackbough

As we all know, Blackbough is for the girls who adore the beach – but basking in the sun, lounging on the sand, and taking a dip in the sea, all come with a major responsibility to protect Mama Nature. This is why for Earth Day 2022, we are giving our beloved community a way to join the reforestation movement and help save our earth.

2022 Commitment

Now that the rush of the holiday season is behind us, and we are into 2022, I have had some time to reflect on last year. In celebrating the new year, I wanted to share a bit more about my business and our future plans.

Trend Spotlight: Y2K

For those who haven’t noticed, Y2K fashion is back with a vengeance. After years of minimalist dressing and pared-down styling trends, today’s looks are all about making a statement -- meaning they’re bigger and bolder than ever.
