MONTHLY UPDATE #1

Solace London Flared pants

I am starting a new series on this blog where at the end of each month I do an update for the month, the things i’m grateful for, my plans for the next month, my monthly favorites and my top 5 Instagram posts for the month just as a way to connect with you guys on a deeper level. So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my first ever monthly update for the month of May.

THINGS I’M GRATEFUL FOR

May has been somewhat of a defining month for me in many aspects of my life, both publicly and privately. First off, I obviously restarted my blogging journey after a one year hiatus this month and saying I am loving every minute is an understatement. The feedback i’ve gotten and just all the love in general has me overwhelmed and I couldn’t thank you guys enough for that. So from me, to you, thank you. I am very thankful to have this avenue, this space where I can express myself through my love for fashion and just everything else and I do not take it for granted. This blog has given me the opportunity to meet and work with some really amazing people and I want to shout them out so here goes – Timothy Eugene , Kosim Shukurov, Amer Zablah and Goke Ariztos. These people I’ve mentioned are beasts at what they do and if you don’t believe me, please just click on each of their profiles and see for yourself or go to my Instagram and if you ever need their services, tell them I sent you.

We did hit 3000 followers on Instagram and 100 followers on the new Mercyàlamode Facebook page. Cheers to that. If you aren’t already please follow me on Instagram and Facebook. I update Instagram before any other platform so doing so will keep you in the loop.

I also had a minor car accident this month. Thankfully nobody was hurt.

PLANS

I am excited to see where this journey takes me. I am looking forward to putting out even more amazing content, meeting new people and establishing valuable connections in my community both online and in the real world.

Now this is the big one – I am committing to putting out 2 blog posts every week. So for new content, come back to this space every Monday and Thursday at 12:00 noon. This is for me (putting it out there so i can be held accountable if i don’t keep up) and also so that you guys can know exactly what to expect. Wish me luck guys.

I do struggle with consistency and lately, I have been feeling off balance within the high-pressure, high-stress, high-speed days that make up today’s lifestyle and society. So hopefully, this will help organize this aspect of my life as I struggle to do same in every other area.

Fun fact about me: I have a ballroom dance obsession. I swear I am obsessed. I had completed an introductory course and I’m definitely taking even more lessons this summer,  starting this June.
