recycle: to make something new from something that has been used before.

novelty: the quality or state of being new, different, and interesting.

Recycled Novelty is a notion that came to me randomly. I liked the way it sounded, I could picture it in writing, and the concept resonated with me. It’s the idea that — amidst the utter idea pollution induced by the digital space — everything we consume is recycled. It’s something that’s been done before in some way, and is now being renewed or restructured — like a pop star making a comeback with a different sound, style, or image (i.e. Miley Cyrus, Nick Jonas), or a fashion/beauty trend resurfacing on runways at Fashion Week. I knew that, in creating a lifestyle blog, I wasn’t doing anything remotely original. So, in a way, Recycled Novelty is tongue-in-cheek. It’s me saying “Yes, I’m just another style blogger.” But it’s also a play on the recycling of pop culture.

It is my goal that this space incites the thrill of novelty in you.
