Where have I been? New Blog and 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. A hiring freeze happened. I did find a job right before the freeze, but couldn’t work on-site yet. 

So in the meantime, I made some branding and content changes, started another blog, and worked on starting a business. Was happy with the direction I was taking, but 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 and overworked. Took several months to recuperate, got a new job in a different industry, and moved again to California. I was in a better place for a little bit before inflation hit and living in California, as expensive as it was, got even more expensive. Less than a year later, I decided to find another job and moved back to North Carolina where I am now.


Now for announcements. My first announcement is that I launched a second blog, The Pale Flower, a fashion blog focusing on floral, feminine, and retro fashion. 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. 

My second announcement is that I will also be launching a personal blog soon called Lee Lee Lifestyle. No content yet and the design is a work in progress, but this is where I will post content that isn't suitable for LeeNG Beauty and The Pale Flower. Beauty and fashion will still be included, but also other topics such as food, pets, TV shows and movies, and my personal life. 

A couple more projects are in the works as well but won’t give any more details until they come closer to fruition. 

Thank you for reading.
