Not Your Normal OutFit Off the Day Post

The Outfit of the Day post was put on hold for a month.  This year 2018 started off with a bang literally.  As January started I was jovial to start a New Year and a new chapter in my life.  Nevertheless, the universe had other plans.

I was brutally attacked in the city I call home and love Paris, France.  I was robbed of precious things a Fashion and Lifestyle blogger needs to survive; iPhone, Laptop, credit cards and the designer bag by one of her favorite Amercian designers.  My confidence was gone after I woke up from a concussion and saw my face.

The question now is how does a fashion blogger get over PTSD? With the help of friends to give her a complete makeover. That’s how.  With friends that can do hair, makeup, fashion styling and take pictures.  I was on the road to recovery after a month with a banged up face and low self-esteem.

Here the makeup artist used products from the Fenty Beauty Collection, Black Up, Jay Manuel Beauty, and NYX Cosmetics. I have an attachment to my Fenty foundation because it gives me full coverage to cover up all my scares.  Mixed with the Jay Manuel powder gives the glow that I need to get up and go each day. 

The Glam team does their magic on me and Instagram says welcome back.  My hair and makeup gives me my spunk back and confidence.  The Likes on Instagram for this mature fashion influencer puts a smile on this style editors face.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me through this hard time.  Yet, the most important to thank is the Style Cartel blog, writing has saved my life and given me the therapy I needed.  The Outfit of the Day post has made me love life even more!

Now it is time to get back to Micro Blogger life.  I may not be one of those famous bloggers with millions to spend on an outfit and walk up and down the streets outside a fashion show.  I am more of an introverted fashion writer.  My fashion blog saved my life!
