In the beginning of my blog I never really did a post about who I am and why I’m blogging, so I thought today I would finally do one, so you can get to know who I am 🙂
First of all my name is Melissa, I am 23 years old and am from a suburb just outside of Toronto, Canada. I have been obsessed with fashion for as long as I can remember, from going to sleep in any new clothes my mom would buy me as a child because I was too excited to take them off (shoes included!) – to re purposing old t-shirts into shrugs for me and my childhood best friend Rebecca, at the age of 12. My family and I have gone camping every summer since I was born (Tents, forest, bears and all) and I was always the one who would pack skirts, dresses, makeup, and my hair straighter…every year without fail. People would always say “You know you’re camping right?…” like it was some excuse to take a break from my passion for always being overdressed. I have gotten better with my camping style now that I’m older(I still go every year), it’s a lot more practical, but still cute! Anyways, i’m sure you get the point…fashion is a huge part of who I am!
I have a boyfriend named Peter who I’ve been with for 5 and a half year (6yrs in August!). He is the sweetest person I have ever met, and so loving and supportive. He pushes me to follow my dreams, and I am so grateful everyday for him 🙂 He is also the reason I have a little 4 year old cat named Muffins, who has turned me into such a crazy cat mom. Muffins looks like batman, she’s all white with a black mask, tail and one little black patch on her side. All through high-school I wanted my own cat sooooo badly, but my parents told me no. Being the rebellious teen that I was (I wasn’t actually rebellious…this was extremely out of character for me) I went to the pet store ‘just to look’ and ended up falling in love with the little batman kitten in the widow. Peter saw how much I wanted her and ended up buying her for me. Long story short my parents were not happy at first, they loved Muffins but I was grounded for a while… but hey! it all worked out perfectly, we have gotten another cat since because everyone loves Muffins so much!
Moving on – I started this blog about two years ago but I didn’t publish regularly, I would be really into it for a month or two and then I would stop for a few months. I used to be really scared of people judging me, and it took me a while to over come that. Eventually I just decided that I can’t let fears stop me from doing something that I have always wanted to do, which is share my thoughts and tips on fashion and trends with people who share the same interests. So that is exactly what I’m going to do!
As for what I’m up to right now, I am kind of at an awkward point in my life where I quit my full time job(because I wasn’t happy), and I’m currently working part time in sales, blogging, and taking a few courses on the side, while I wait to go back to school full-time in the fall.
Okay I don’t want this to get extremely long so I’m going to leave it at that, if anyone has any questions feel free to leave a comment!
Thanks so much for reading ❤
