May Favorites

May seemed like a long but short month all in one. On one hand it seem like it was forever ago that I was finishing up my exams but on the other hand it seems like the month went by really quickly. Never the less the month is over so I am here to share my favorites from the past month that I have been loving. I use to do this weekly but depending on how many items I have I might just do one large post with my favorites at the end of each month. These items are what I have been loving in no particular category!

1. Lululemon Hotty Hot Shorts II 2.5" // I bought a pair of these shorts over the winter at a Lululemon outlet in neon pink and had not really worn them too much until recently when the weather finally got warm this month. Though these have quickly become my favorite gym shorts. They are the most comfortable shorts and they are so easy to move in. I pretty much have worn them everyday I am not at work and I could use about three more pairs but they are kind of pricy!

Nordstrom Half Year Sale Picks

Today I am sharing some of my top picks from the Nordstrom Half Year Sale that is going on now until June 3rd. This sale is like a mini Anniversary sale but there are some amazing deals. The dress selection for this sale is amazing especially with wedding season coming up. I feel like we all need a special occasion dress for one reason or another in the summer and they have a lot of great options. They also have a lot of great "wear to work" options. I found this brand Eliza J while searching through the endless pages of sale items. I am loving this dress brand. How come I am just finding this brand now?! I hope you find this helpful as I tried to narrow it down to my favorites as there are SO many sale items. Click the images to shop and use the arrow to scroll across. With it being Memorial Day weekend I am going to be doing a full run down on all the amazing sales going so look for that in the next day or two on the blog! I hope everyone is excited for the long weekend with some beautiful weather.

Last Year In Pictures

I figured since yesterday I shared with you a brief overview of what has happened within the past year of my life from my last blog post I wanted to give you one more opportunity to feel like you somewhat caught up on my life before I dive right back into posting about new things. So today I am sharing with you a few pictures of the things I mentioned in yesterday's post! I hope this gives you a better look into my life. Tomorrow I will "officially" be posting new content with my top picks for the Nordstrom sale that is happening right now so stay tuned for that.

I'm Back

Hi guys I am officially back after a very long break from blogging. It is coming up on almost a year since I last posted a blog post or done anything with my blog. It's crazy to think that it has been almost a full year  as it really doesn't feel like it has been that long. It feels weird to be typing this as I don't even know where to begin or what to say. I guess to make this post somewhat organized and not all over the place I am going to break this post up into three sections. 

If you don't want to read this whole long post I also explained pretty much everything in this video as I thought it would be nice to talk to Y'all!

#1: Why I Stopped Blogging? 

This is a very complicated answer and to be honest I don't know if I even fully know myself why I stopped blogging for almost a full year. As many of you know last summer I moved to Hilton Head Island in South Carolina for a summer internship. I planned on blogging while I was there and sharing my experiences but to be honest I just lacked the time and also motivation. I was either busy working,  enjoying my free time exploring, or hanging out with my roommates. I also found myself not having a lot of creative ideas on what to post. Mel Chic May started to feel like a chore more than a hobby. I started to feel like I had to try and get a post up even if I didn't really want to. So I slowly started to step away from the blog and fully enjoy my summer. Which I did, I don't think I have ever been so sad to leave a place and close a chapter in my life. There were times when I wanted to get back into it but I just didn't have the desire. Then once I moved back to school and started college I got busy with school and a new internship I started. Basically long story short I lacked the time and creative energy. So you are probably wondering why start back at it now? Well first off recently I have been truly missing the fun I had running my blog. Not because I feel like I have to start blogging again but because I want to. I did really enjoy it when I did it and recently I have been needing a fun hobby in my life again. There are times when I have felt kind of lost recently and I realized not blogging is part of it. I don't think I realized it until recently but blogging for me is like keeping a diary and it almost helps me sort my thoughts out. I hope that made sense that was a really long answer!
