Here I am doing the only 5 poses I know (: I honestly feel like I’ve been absent from this blog for that past few months, make that year. I mean, posts have gone up every now and then but my drive to post consistently has dramatically waned. If I’m being honest, moving to Mississippi, Cohen turning one, and then packing up four months later and traveling across the country to settle in Arizona really put a sting in things. Being a full-time mom and trying to maintain a full-time blog is no joke.


I really lost my desire to create content; content that I had a true passion for the last 2-3 years prior to having baby Co. That little kid makes me crazy with love jitters. I wanted to spend every waking minute with him. I would’ve rather sat and played with him than sit at a computer or work in front of a camera. It just didn’t make sense anymore.

Oddly enough though I simply couldn’t give this little blog up. I’ve wanted to so many times but I.just.can’t. As odd as this may sound, hair just gets to me. When I see a certain hairstyle I just go nuts thinking I want to recreate it right then and there and can’t wait to sit down and film a tutorial. Like, it just gets me, like peanut butter and jelly.

As a result I decided to scale back and just post what I could. Honestly, I was getting so stressed out trying to keep deadlines that I gave myself. I was staying up until 2 or 3 am editing a video and the next morning I was so groggy and grumpy, Cohen didn’t deserve that. Long story short, I convinced AJ to head outside the other day to take one “1” instagram picture for me. I love this top and was really feeling myself so I just had to share a snap on the gram. Needless to say I decided to turn it into a post and give you a teensy update on what’s happening over here in my corner of the blogosphere.  bell-sleeves-fall-fashionI hope you enjoyed seeing this outfit. I really loved how easy-going this whole getup felt. Sometimes I feel so clustered by things I’m wearing but this felt really casual. These boots are a new fave. AJ called me a cowboy but I already know they’ll be on repeat this fall and winter. neutral-basics-fall-fashion

So until I can muster up another outfit post, I love you for reading all the way to the end. Your comments on here, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Snap, wherever you like to find me, really keep me going. I really really appreciate them, like really. They’re what have truly kept me motivated to share my snippets of creativity with the world. I love them but it makes it all worthwhile when you love them too. So thank you, so very, very much. xo, Missy

    Love your blog, Missy. You just seem like a real person and someone who I could sit and chat with! Love the hair posts especially. Your little guy also needs you, so if you needed to give up the blog, I would totally support you! I do love seeing your posts on here and instagram. It doesn’t matter how often :-)

    Dear Missy,

    You do what you need to do, girl, and don’t ever feel like you have to apologize! One of the things that attracted me to your videos when I first began watching them was your bubbly and incredibly warm personality– your calm and gentle instructions have given me the patience to create a lot of looks that I would otherwise have given up on.

    Woman to woman, I support you and your decision to dedicate time to the things you deem most important. I’ll always look forward to more posts from you, no matter how far apart they’re spaced, and I hope that you continue to have a lovely time together with your family :)
