Coffee Quotes & Notes #20: My Pictures Are Gone


There's an old saying that goes something like this: Nothing is for certain...all things change.

About the Blog

As you may have noticed,  99.8% of my photos are gone. Vanished. Disappeared. In the Upside Down place. What happened? I don't know. I'm currently trying to figure out what's up. My computer is fine. I'm the only one that uses it. So.... I don't know. Maybe I deleted something by accident? And if I did, then Oops! Jokes on me! lol. Do all new bloggers go through this?

Time to Refocus.

But as they say...every road block is an opportunity to try a different route. But to add insult to injury, lately, I've been rather disconnected to fashion and what it means to me. Do I live and breathe it? If I'm uncertain about it then surely, I need to rethink my course of action. Well, the past few weeks I thought about fashion....I wanted a sign from the fashion gods....I wanted a sign worthy of my attention. (I tend to ignore signs) And guess what happened....My pictures Vanished! Ha! How's that for a sign! Maybe fashion isn't for me....admittedly, I've found myself drawn to my unofficial blog. Diary of Lena Noir. The pictures are gone from my Diary, as well. The wonderful thing is I don't need pictures to get my point across on Lena Noir. However with fashion, you kind of need pictures to sell your story or...product.

What will Happen Next?

This week, I will try to figure out, how to add pictures or at least find free pictures. OR....I really don't know. As of now, the answers I need--I haven't found it yet. Or maybe I've found the answer and like a jilted ex-boyfriend, who's unaware that it's over--he desperately find ways to make things right again.

Is this the end of Lena Revealed? As of right now, I'm under construction until further notice.

I apologize in advance.

I love a good deal! If I can find a inexpensive version of a runway look- then I'm all in. That's how budget fashionistas prefer to shop! Bonus: Go 'thrifting' at a thrift store (a good thrift store, people!) to find nice items at a discounted price. There are so many hidden gems that you can easily put a high fashion look together for less than $20. But you have to look and sift through everything! However, today it's all about Seasonal Must-Haves at our favorite and affordable stores like Zara and H&M.

Get It For Less: Spring Must-Haves

I'm loving sling backs this season. It's a 80's/90s trend with a modern update. I've seen celebrities and fashion influencers rocking this trend in every color. It's a must-have for this Spring and Summer.


Morning Coffee Quotes & Notes #19

Quote Of The Day


When we put expectations or ideals on how our lives "should" go, when it doesn't go as planned; we stress out! ...Or at least I do! ha! *shrugs*

About the Quote.

This quote spoke to me in ways unimaginable. As Oprah would say, I had an 'aha moment!' And I did. I immediately resonated with it. I even mumbled ummmmmhmmmm. lol. There are times when I would much rather be on a beach at a exclusive resort drinking Pina Coladas. And I don't like Pina Coladas! But the idea of it sounds so much better than where I'm at. I can't get caught up in a fantasy while living in my reality. I have to face my reality. My reality is doing what I need to do; to make those dreams happen. It's stressful, though. You have to put in a lot of work to make those dreams happen.

The thing about stress and expectations is how easy it is for me to look at someone else's journey. If I see someone, on social media, living a lifestyle I want--I'm secretly jealous. Not in a "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha" type of way but in a 'if I keep looking at her photos, I'll turn a self-loathing stan!' lol.. And that's not who I am! So, I'm not sure if social media does more harm than good??? There's something odd about social media. You're connecting with people but in a shallow way. There's a brag-ga-docious vibe about it, that slightly irks me. It's a 'Look At What I'm Doing' feel to it. I might be over-thinking it....or not. But Is social media a little narcissistic? *shrugs*

Social Media

I have taken a tiny break from Instagram. I will resume, soon. As I said before, I found myself caught up in other people's lifestyle and I forgot about my own well-being. Crazy! So I decided to dial back and focus on what matters to me. Which is My Own Life. ha! And my blogs!

Have a Good Week, Marshaaaaaa! lol

PS: Yes, I definitely quoted The Brady Bunch! Your Welcome! And Stan means: Stalker-Fan

Trends We Love: Belted Blazers


While some of us, try to stay away from what's trending; its safe to say that belted blazers are this season (and seasons beyond) it-girl look. Belted blazers are chic, sophisticated and stylish. You can easily upgrade your look by adding a belt. Yes, a Belt! Everyone has a belt in there closet and if not.....well, go get one, now! Just kidding! Not really. ha! And while you're at it, search for the perfect blazer. Since it is pastel season, ladies, look for mint, pink and/or neutral colored blazer. These colors scream Spring and Summer. However, if you're not into lighter colors then opt for a traditional black blazer and throw a belt on it!
