I just wanted to extend a huge virtual hug to all the lovely people that left me sweet comments on the blog, Facebook and Twitter about my decision to take a hiatus. I really appreciate everyone’s support of Melificent! Although I am currently working on some new endeavors that will bring me back into the blogosphere in one way or another, you can catch me over on Instagram. I’ll be showcasing my outfits in a different way over there & hope I can continue to provide some fun & joy over the Interwebs.
I hope to be able to announce 1 of the 2 new projects by the summer months (I’m aiming for July)!

After 3 years in the blogosphere, the time has come to step away from Melificent.
This is not a permanent goodbye (I don’t like those), but a hiatus of sorts. This has been an undertaking for me, mainly because I do not like to do things half way. I wanted to post daily, with original content, about things I enjoy. I wanted to be real – I didn’t want to portray a persona and I wanted it to be fun. I did this despite having a full time job that I LOVE, but nonetheless takes up a lot of my time.
I loved every second. Although, now 3 years later, I am a little disillusioned. I love all the relationships I made through this blog, and hope I can find another venture (whether it be this blog re-imagined, another blog or something completely different) that will leave some sort of mark.
Until we meet again….

Clinique never fails me when it comes to safe & effective beauty products. I was in love with their new CC cream (here) and I felt no different after checking out their new line of nail polishes, A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins. It’s formulated to minimize skin sensitivity (that not only includes skin, but eyes as well). Why is this important? Well, did you nail enamel can cause irritation and even contact dermatitis on the thin skin around the eye? It’s actually considered a significant allergen source for those in the dermatological community!

I’m taking a page from the hubby‘s book today by putting together a photo essay of my amazingly fun trip to Orlando, FL this past weekend. The bestie and I attended the 6th annual Quidditch World Cup, which for any Potter fan is a dream come true. For those wondering, “muggle quidditch” is comprised of elements from rugby, dodgeball and olympic handball. And yes, it is a full contact sport (complete with a human snitch and all).
