If you've been following me a while, you'll notice I am no longer "FACES by M the BLOG" and that I am now "THE GOOD LIFE with M". The rebranding has been something I've wanted to do for months. With all the changes the world has experienced (and probably still experiencing), I thought to myself that it's time to move on to the next step of my life and focus on other creative outlets I've been wanting to sink my hands into. With all the uncertainty, I feel like taking next steps.
I announced to everyone on my social medias back in August 2020 that I plan to phase myself out of my makeup artistry, "FACES by M" and fully retire around 2022. First, I am doing more interior design work at my day job - grateful I get to say that, especially at my age - and want to learn as much as I can. Second, I want to travel more without having to work around wedding season (Spring/Summer) or weekend makeup appointments...of course, the traveling I'd like to do overseas is going to have to take a backseat because of the growing numbers of COVID and ever-changing travel requirements.
And as I close out this entry, I should mention I have a basic sense in how to edit videos but I don't have the "know-how" in creating the amazing productions I envision in my head. I know I'll get the hang of it - I have a vision and know what I like so I'm relying on blind faith. Naturally, I'll be working with my socials so that I amp up visibility. It'll be interesting to see how it works for me to combine all platforms.
It'll be a steep learning curve but, at the same time, it'll be awesome to pick up some new tech skills. Wish me luck loves and CHEERS to The GOOD LIFE with M!
Mari here! That's pronounced "Mary" not "Mawry" or "Marie" (but y'know, I never correct anyone if they say my name wrong - haha)! Welcome to my blog where I share my inner thoughts and all things I love in life. I work for an awesome company that allows me to showcase my creativity while moonlighting as a freelance makeup artist, blogger, and (soon-to-be) vlogger! Still, my most important job is raising 3 beautiful children with one handsome dude!
