What I’ve Been Up To?:
Honestly? I’ve been….living – dreaming, thinking, doing, being, learning, creating & loving. And this time, I’m not apologizing for it. When I go on these sabbaticals, it’s due to stress and being overwhelmed. Typically, I feel guilty for abandoning my blog for so long. But this time, I don’t feel guilty at all. I took a step back from LipstickInMyCoffee to do all the things I just mentioned and to really figure out my “Why” and purpose of creating it in the first place.
Last year was a BLAST! One of my favorite years to date. Being an NFL Cheerleader for the Baltimore Ravens was literally all I could’ve ever imagined – amazing coaches, amazing teammates and amazing fans. It really doesn’t get any better than that. However, my mind was clouded. While I was fulfilling one passion, I was neglecting another, the most important, my passion to create. As much as I hate to admit it, I was stressed. My career, my relationships and my blog were put on the back burner for a very long time.
I’ve been away so long, because I didn’t want to come back in a place of stress or ambiguity. I wanted to come back fresh with a plan and a strategy in place to really help nurture, inspire and motivate my readers. So, I didn’t. I stayed away until I was ready to bring you strong, aesthetically pleasing, consistent content. I now have the space, the tools, the strategy and the energy I need to breed a beautiful community for LipstickInMyCoffee. That’s incredibly exciting!
What’s New With LIMC?:
For those of you who don’t know, my degree is in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in Public Relations. Aside from building this blog, my previous experience stems from being a writer for University Relations at Troy University as well as an Account Executive for CBS Radio. I’ve had the opportunity to build integrated marketing campaigns for local and national businesses – working with Macy’s was my FAVORITE! My passion is creating, whether it be photography, video production, brand/marketing strategy, I love it all! I have two main goals for LipstickInMyCoffee: to foster a community of confident #girlboss creatives and entrepreneurs who appreciate a classic red lip, a vanilla latte(iced or hot), a sexy LBD, a glass of wine, gym dates and “me” time and to exercise my creativity. While LipstickInMyCoffee is going to focus mainly on my personal style, beauty, wellness and lifestyle, I’ll be incorporating more marketing and business bits. I’ll, also, have interviews on the blog showcasing women who are killing it in their industries. Remember the interview with MAC Cosmetics Business Manager? Like that, but more in depth. I have a lot in store for you! Be sure to join the gang, so you never miss a beat. My hope is that my blog helps you cultivate a happy, stylish, healthy life you love!
Because I’ve been away so long, I want to start things off on the right foot – with a GIVEAWAY! On September 1, I’ll be giving away a $50 Giftcard to Sephora. Entering the giveaway is super easy! All you have to do is subscribe to LipstickInMyCoffee’s newsletter and Youtube channel. That’s it. I’ll have a new GRWM Summer Glam video coming out tomorrow, so stay tuned.<3
I hope you guys are just as excited as I am for what’s in-store!
