Welcome to the new and improved La Vie Stella!
This week I worked on creating and designing this new space for my blog. My old one wasn't cutting it. After nine months of blogging, I'd outgrown it. The layout felt dated. The content too focused on beauty. Since I wasn't happy with the design, I wasn't happy with the content. This blog needed to grow, as I have lately in my personal life. To accomplish that I needed to hit the reset button. Brand-new everything! Well, not entirely. The name survived. So did some of the old content. Sometimes it's nice to have a reminder of where you came from...
Initially, I started La Vie Stella to share more than just beauty. I had (and still have) other passions. Style, travel, life. That's what I stopped writing about shortly after starting my blog. On Instagram, I fell into the wondrous and endlessly supportive beauty community. I realized that skincare and makeup were more popular. It was also much easier to photograph picture-perfect beauty products. Beauty was a safe space. As lovely as those are, sometimes you realize you desperately need to break away from them to grow. Now I want to go back to my roots if you will. Don't worry! Beauty is still the main focus of this blog. However, I'm reintroducing style, travel, home decor, musings and whatever else I feel like spontaneously writing about. La Vie Stella is as it should have been from the beginning: a reflection of my life. I no longer want to limit my content to one topic. Maybe that's not what the blogging experts would advise but it's what makes me happiest. In current day blogger terminology, I guess this is now a lifestyle blog.
Hope you enjoy this new space and new blogging era!
