In the next few months, this blog is getting a makeover. I am turning 40 in 2017 and so I want this blog to be a reflection of that.  I am “old” when it comes to fashion bloggers. But, I feel like there is a place in this blog world for women who are not just 25 with endless amounts of time to look good, and endless amounts of money to spend on clothes. We all know that when you become a mom, and as you age, your priorities change. With that being said, I feel like 40 is a pivotal year. My kids are older, and I have more time for me. I feel like I spent the last decade worrying about everyone else, just trying to keep my shit together without losing it.

I feel a sense of peace with this time in my life. My relationships are stronger, I am more confident, I feel better, I know more about myself and what I want.

I want to share this “getting older” journey with you all. There is life after 39…in fact, I feel like it is just the beginning! While there will still be an emphasis on fashion and style (how could there not be) 🙂 There will also be a lot more health and fitness related posts; I will be sharing favorite recipes, healthy lifestyle tips that work for me and hopefully you too. I am a beauty junkie, so I plan to cover all the things I am going to do to try to fight the (skin) aging process! There will be more real life topics, because I think that there are many things women go through that nobody wants to talk about. I am not afraid to touch those subjects! Because sometimes it just feels better to talk about it.

If there are any topics you want me to cover, please message me (mel.knopke@gmail.com)  I am always open to suggestions! Have a great week everyone!
