Finding New Focus in Blogging : Starting Over


I just realized something:  one of the main reasons I started this blog was because I couldn't find the style inspiration I was looking for online.  I wanted to see ladies who dressed like me, but were more comfortable in fully expressing themselves with their clothes.  But instead, I only found inspiration here and there.  It was never all in one place.  I was inspired mentally but not inspired to come up with a new outfit or to add something new to my wardrobe.  Last night, I faced the same issue while searching outfit ideas on Pinterest.  Once again, I couldn't find what I was looking for and that's when it hit me:  I am my inspiration sometimes.  Just seeing the artsy, sometimes quirky, "follow the rules to break the rules" outfits I put together inspires me to come up with even more outfit ideas. 

Recently, I was so distracted by figuring out where I fit content wise in the world of style and beauty bloggers until I pretty much loss touch with why I started blogging in the first place.  I really just wanted to share my style and inspire others that way.  I don't want to force anyone to shop where I shop or to buy the similar clothes I buy.  No.  I just wanted to share and inspire...inspire and share.  As of late, I completely lost myself in trying to "fit in" in cyber world.  But my goal wasn't to fit.  My goal was to leave my mark simply by being myself and sharing what makes me, me.  I don't want the previous sentence to be past tense anymore.  My goal IS to share what makes me, me and from now on, I'm going to do just that! ♥️

Nails of the Week (NOTW) | Pink Glitter Nails

Yay!  More glitter! ;)  This week's manicure features a soft feminine shade of pink paired with a sheer pink glitter polish.  I like these two nail polishes together and it totally fits my mood right now.  I used a natural nail protector beneath the polish that can serve as a base coat as well. 

• Base Coat | Salon Sciences Instant Artificials Protect purchased at Sally Beauty Supply {{exact product here}}

I love using this as a base coat beneath polish because it "mimics the hardness of acrylic nails" without the acrylic nails! :) 

• Pink Color | Malani Nail Lacquer #08 "Pink Lady" is a discontinued color but find the {{exact shade here - while it's still available}} and {{more shades by Milani here}}

• Glitter Topcoat | Confetti Long Wearing Nail Color #021 Pink Confetti purchased at CVS {{Confetti website - color is 4 squares over, 1 square down}}

• 1st Top Coat | Rimmel London Base Coat Top Coat Pro purchased at Walmart but {{exact product online here}} and {{similar product I've used before here}}

• 2nd Top Coat | Poshé Super-fast drying, Super Shiny, Non-Yellowing purchased at Sally Beauty Supply {{exact product here}}

Thanks so much for reading!  Hope you enjoyed.  ❤️

OOTD | Aztec Print Bodycon Mini Skirt


I absolutely love this Bodycon Mini Skirt that I bought on sale a few months ago from Rue21.  I have certainly turned into a slight online shopper as well; when I can't make it to my nearest store, shopping online has become the next best thing for me.  Rue21 is also one of my favorite stores to buy pants, skirts, and dresses.  Then, I tend to pair my favorite finds with clothes and accessories from other stores.  The solid colored purple tank top I'm wearing is from Body Central, another one of my favorite stores for fashionable pieces to work into my wardrobe.

Below are the details about all the jewelry pieces I wore with this look.  I shop for jewelry year round so different versions of my accessories can probably be found right now or in the upcoming season.

Thanks so much for reading.  If you create a similar look, tag your photos or posts using the Hashtag #misscheriemariestyle and I will definitely check them out. ♥
