You might have noticed a tiny change on the blog (insert a huge smile). I am so very excited to officially be Melissa Creates. I don’t think I can properly express my excitement in words but the best way to put is by saying: I feel like I’m “home” in the blog world. I’ve been blessed with some great opportunities and amazing connections these past few years. Melissa Creates is going to be around a hot minute and I ‘m looking forward to connecting with more companies, talented vendors and new bloggers.
The blog design updates were created by my go-to design gal Michele. She rocks, seriously. Michele gets me and without much direction given she knew what to do and nailed it. Put Michele and my friend Meli in your go-to blog design rolodex. Does anyone still use a rolodex?
In honor of the new name I teamed up with Melinda for a small photo shoot. Melinda knows me very well and easily captured me in my element. When we team up it’s tons of fun and giggles. Melinda has so many talents and her photography is great! It can be a little awkward getting photos of yourself taken but Melinda had me in a comfortable zone and laughter makes everything more enjoyable. I added a few pieces that represent my party style best, shabby chic and a vintage flair.
I discovered this dress over at Mod Cloth and said oh my gosh, this has my name ALL OVER IT! It represents me, a part of my style and it most definitely represents Melissa Creates. (I rocked my mocking jay pen because I had to show a little geeky side, duh).
Live Simply. Entertain Stylishly.
Living simply is how I roll and I can’t wait to showcase more ways that I incorporate this tagline in my personal life.
