Welcome to my spiffy, new blog! Hope you didn’t get lost on the way over here!
When I first started this blog I wanted to focus on fashion because it seemed to be the one thing everyone knew me for and I got questioned about. However, as a few months went by I realized that there are so many other aspects of my life that I enjoy and projects I put together that I’d love to share them. Before I even got into fashion I loved art, design and eating dessert. I figured this would be a great way to encompass all those aspects of my life, plus share some chic tricks and stylish inspiration all in one spot.
For those of you who have been following me from the beginning, I deeply apologize for changing the blog name and URL, yet again. Trust me, I agonized over making this decision as I completely wanted to avoid it – unfortunately, I just couldn’t. The old blog name just didn’t fit into my vision for this new one and I had to make a strategic decision to dump it. Sorry! I hope you understand and I promise I will not be changing this one as I think it’s more fitting to what I’ll be sharing here.
I’ve been pretty busy the last couple of months putting all of this together and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with all of you. Here are some new features:
Dressed Up – I will be doing quite a few outfit posts each month so don’t expect those to go anywhere.
Make Me Up – Will include make-up and hair tutorials. Right now, it’ll probably just focus on make-up because I’m in the process of growing my hair out and I can’t do too much with it. Hopefully, I’ll be able to in a couple of months.
Design It – This will incorporate various décor, do-it-yourself tutorials, and other crafty side projects I like to delve into. Once, I have my own place I hope to really focus on interior design since it’s my other great passion.
Feed Me – OK. I’m not going to lie – I used to be terrified of the kitchen. I never really thought I could cook or bake and to be completely honest I didn’t even like it. That was until I finally tried it…like really tried it! Now, it’s kind of what I do on Sunday nights. I like to make a new or old dish and share it with my family – so why not share it with you guys. I’m not a top master chef, so please don’t expect anything like that, but I do make a great stack of chocolate chip-cinnamon pancakes and other yummy bites.
I have updated my FAQs section (check it out) and mentioned that I’ll be posting a couple times a week – mainly Tuesdays and Thursdays due to my current schedule. However, I do hope to post a bit here and there so be on the lookout.
I’m excited about this new blog as it’s become really important to me and I love sharing my thoughts and ideas with everyone. Thanks so much to all my current readers and I hope you continue reading and a warm welcome to my new readers.
As always, if you want to say hello, ask me a question, pitch an idea, or send in a recipe please feel free to, just click on Reaching Me.
P.S. What do you guys think about this new blog? I’d love to hear your opinions!
P.P.S. Be on the lookout for a new post tomorrow – this way I can squeeze at least one outfit post in before the end of the week!

P.P.P.P.S. Here are some outtakes from my side-bar bio session. This was towards the end of putting together the new blog so I was a bit delirious! Forgive me.
