Throwbacks, Setbacks and Comebacks

Guess who’s back? Back again!
Yasss! I am! I am back with a revamped site. Today’s post is supposed to serve as an update of the past few months. It’s been a month since I finally self hosted my site, but I’ve been keeping a low profile since I’ve been working on revamping everything, getting everything in place, and getting it all to look exactly how I want it to look.

I took a blogging and social media break since August up till December. During that period various of things took place: the good, the bad, the ugly. I don’t feel the need of going into details about those events, the past is the past after all. And I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason, thus everything that happened so far was all for a reason.

Every big decision anyone makes involves several setbacks. One major setback that I faced was the fact that I had lost my creativity and I was stuck feeling immensely uninspired for way too long. Despite generally being an optimistic person I seriously struggled with trying to get out of this rut I had gotten myself into.Shoutout to my support system, you guys have no idea how much I appreciate each and every single one of you. With their help I eventually got out of this rut and found inspiration and ‘Mikaesque’ was brought to life.

My blog launched as ‘A Shade of Mikachuu’ last March. I used to solely focus on everything that was fashion related. Now though, I’ve renamed my blog as you can see, and I’ve also decided to expand my niche to include lifestyle and beauty, alongside fashion of course.The reason behind my niche expansion, well I found myself touching up on lifestyle and beauty topics in several of my posts. Thus, I decided that I didn’t want to restrict myself to fashion topics only. I had initially branded myself as a ‘mix and match’ enthusiast and I didn’t want my blog to completely focus on that anymore. On top of that I have to admit the length of that name did start irritating me haha. As for my new name ‘Mikaesque’, the suffix ‘-esque’ is defined as :’in the style or resembling’.So the whole name ‘Mikaesque’ can be defined as:’anything that is done in the style of Mika’. All of my upcoming posts will have a dose of Mikaesque perspectives and humor. Sound promising enough for you? I hope so haha

All that throwback talk aside, I present to you my revamped site: Mikaesque. From now on with this platform I shall give you Mikaesque updates on fashion, beauty and lifestyle related topics.

Well that’s a wrap on my reasonable attempt at an explanation for my hiatus. A lil throwback, a few setbacks and my comeback all wrapped in a pretty bow. If you’re a blogger in any of these niches do leave a comment saying hi along with a link to your site, I’d love to check it out!



Stay tuned for more Mikaesque posts~
