In case you didn’t know and are new here, my name is Melissa. I am a two year blogger, southern California native living in Charlotte, NC. My full time job is a cardiac nurse and I have been doing that for almost 5 years. I am married, no kids, but I do have five nieces and nephews that are my total world. I am the baby of four girls and have always been the attention seeker, lover, and boundary pusher within the family. I have a cat named Posey that is my sweet Angel.
I say all this because I think its important to know a little bit about me. A little bit of what makes me, me because today is a special day. Today, is the start of something new. Today, is the day I begin a new business venture, more commitment within this space, and begin providing the fresh perspective that I have been looking for.
Let’s start with the blogging.
I started out as a “lifestyle blogger” because I wanted to share a little bit of everything within my life. Well, then I switched to a “fashion blogger” because I wanted to be more specific, but my take on fashion has remained pretty….safe and most likely smilier to that of the masses.
Lately, the question has been, how can I provide a better perspective on fashion and after lots of journaling and questions, and trial and error I realized that it was all in the name – Fashion. I need to represent my fashion perspective. Well…that’s when I realized that truth be told I didn’t really have a perspective. I just posted what was safe and comfortable. Now, I am not saying that’s bad, but what I am saying is that I needed to figure out my own perspective because that is what you all were coming to me for. I then sat down and thought, if I am going to be a fashion blogger…I need to know fashion!
Research ensued. And it continues. It is overwhelming, but I know now I can help you.
Here is what I am looking to provide…
I am going to close the gap between high fashion and us.
What does that look like? I am going to provide you with my personal translation of what is occurring on the runways and how we (yes you and me) can wear these looks. I am going to provide you with the current trends, my personal take on some of the biggest fashion news (let’s be honest, we allll like to be in the know), and I am going to break it down on what is worth investing in, what we can use in our current closets already, and what may be worth purchasing.
Now, don’t worry. I am still going to provide insight into my life, my workouts, and everything else, because I think that you all are not only interested in that, but it also allows you to get to know me better. Get excited, this is going to be so fun!
Next, is this whole idea of five days a week.
I know, in the past, I have struggled with this. In fact, I used to post five days a week, but stopped. Well, I am bringing it back and that is because I want this page to become a part of your day-to-day.
I want you to open up my blog posts while you sip your morning coffee and find a fresh perspective on fashion, health, wellness, skincare, entrepreneurship, and self-development. I want to be a part of your everyday, so grab your latte, put a face mask on, and read on!
Lastly, is probably my biggest news – my new business venture!
Guys. I am SO excited for this. You honestly have no idea!
But…sadly you will have to wait until later this week to find out more because that topic deserves an entire post to itself!
See you tomorrow.
Same time. Same place.
