Where have I been? New Shop, New Blog, Plus Life Update

It’s been over a year since I last posted on LeeNG Beauty and just wanted to give a life update because a lot has changed, plus a couple of announcements. To start, I will be returning to create more blog content on LeeNG Beauty. I never completely stopped posting content, but my posting has definitely been more erratic between life events, other projects, and just experimenting with my content. 


It was in April of 2020 that I last posted. I had moved from North Carolina to Texas earlier that year because I couldn’t find a job. Pandemic hit. Hiring freeze happened. I did find a job right before the freeze, but couldn’t work on-site yet. 

So in the meantime, I had made some branding and content changes, started another blog, and worked on starting a business. Was happy with the direction I was taking, then got the call to start my job and everything got put on hold because I just didn’t have the time. 

Ended up leaving that job less than a year later after being hospitalized due to severe depression on top of being overworked. Took several months to recuperate, got a new job in a different industry, moved again to California and that’s where I am now. It’s expensive here, but I am in a better place now.


Now for announcements. My first announcement is that I started an online boutique called Mei Linda US. Our motto: Floral. Feminine. Fashion. I wanted to curate and design pieces for the busy woman that are affordable without sacrificing femininity. The website has actually been live for a few months already, but have not made an official announcement until now.

Currently, Mei Linda US only carries jewelry but I am trying to expand into clothes and other accessories. Still have a lot of work to do, but will hopefully have an almost full range of products within the next couple years. I do use a lot of neutrals so that you can put an outfit together quickly, but also incorporate color, florals, and statement pieces. 

My second official announcement is that I launched a second blog, The Pale Flower, a floral fashion blog. It was mentioned a long time ago on my Facebook page, but (again) never made an official announcement. It’s my “fun” blog and you’ll quickly notice that the tone is drastically different. I don’t treat blogging like a business, but I do take a serious, more informative approach when it comes to writing my LeeNG Beauty content. 

I am working on a couple more projects but won’t give any more details until they come closer to fruition. 

Thank you for reading.
