Hi y’all! As you probably have noticed or read in my post yesterday, there has been some huge changes made to Not Too Shabby Chic Fashion. There isn’t only changes in how it looks but also what content will be on this blog of mine. Of course, it will still have the three pillars I’ve always written about but the subcategories have been revamped.
I felt that my old subcategories didn’t give me the tools I needed for those subjects I wanted to write about. Also, after three years it was time to buckle down and get serious with redoing the look of Not Too Shabby Chic Fashion. The look just didn’t align with my current style. So, I changed that as well.
I have to say I am very happy with this change and I hope you are all happy with it too! Let’s get into what’s been changed and what to expect:
What Has Changed?
• The entire face of the website has been given a face lift and a new style, one that goes well with my fashion sense.
• You can now get to my Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube social media outlets from the website where you will find even MORE content especially on my Instagram page.
• Along with the social media pages, you can also view and shop my Poshmark closet, where I sell super cute secondhand items!
• As for my blog posts themselves, the text on all of the featured images has changed. I will be alternating between these two texts.
• My About section is more detailed and was updated to fit my personality but also my blog theme.
• Shopping my Instagram outfits has never gotten easier! Now there is a page dedicated just for this. Click on the outfit you like most and you’ll be brought to a page that shows the outfit and where to get the pieces or similar ones.
• My pillar categories are the same but the subcategories have been updated to be better than what was there previously and to give me a wider range to write about.
What to expect?
As for what to expect let’s start with the new subcategories:
Fashion Hauls: For this category I will be posting hauls of fashion related items I’ve found or purchases I’ve made. This includes try-on hauls, flat lay hauls and even dressing room hauls.
#OOTD: This one is more self explanatory but I will be continuing to post Outfit Of The Day posts. Instead of calling the subcategory “outfits” I felt #OOTD was trendier and more fun!
Trending Now: This category is specifically for me to share with you all new trends that are surfacing or have already surfaced in the fashion world. I will be trying out fashion trends in posts like this and maybe even setting a few of my own!
Boujee On A Budget: I truly love this category, not just because it’s catchy but because it’s where I will be showing you all affordable outfits and ways to fashion items! This can be either shopping exclusively from Walmart or in the clearance section or it could even be where to find cheap alternatives to designer items.
Let’s Get Some Shoes: Anyone else day this while shopping with their bestie?! I know I do! This category is going to be ALL about shoes. From new shoes I’ve purchased to cute shoes I’ve had. Shoes can tell you a lot about a person so it deserves its own category.
Thrifted Fashion: As I had said beforehand. I sell a ton of secondhand items on Poshmark. With this comes a ton of thrift shopping and with thrift shopping comes a ton of thrifted outfits I keep for myself. For this category I will be sharing these items I’ve thrifted, outfits I’ve thrown together, online thrifted items and even hand-me-down outfits.
How To Style: For this category it’ll all explain how to style different fashion items in my humble opinion. I will go through different ways to style a scarf, sweater, a plain t-shirt etc.
Makeup Reviews: This category is yet another self-explanatory one but a great one nonetheless. Here I will be reviewing different makeup that I test out. This could mean makeup I’ve purchased, tried in the store or even makeup samples I’ve gotten in the mail.
Makeup Looks: With this category I will be showing you different looks I did with makeup. It could be looks from different palettes, based on Snapchat filters, or even as basic as “wedding/ bridal makeup look”.
Makeup Hauls: Yes, it may be hard to believe but I buy as much makeup as I do fashion and that’s actually insane. But it’s a passion, right?! For this category I will be sharing what makeup I’ve purchased or was gifted to me! These posts won’t include any reviews or looks but just the items themselves.
But First… Skincare: This category is named perfectly. I mean skincare always should come first! It will be ALL about skincare. I will cover everything from skincare hauls to product testing/results to mask reviews. I may even do some DIY skincare stuff as well.
The Nail Bar: A category where it is ALL about nails. I’m not a huge nail tech guru but I am a girly girl and to me that’s pretty dang close. I will cover different nail polishes, nail purchases, products for your nails, how to get gel nails, DIY manicures, how to do certain things with your nails and more.
Beauty Finds: The category used to be called Weird Beauty Finds but I realized not all beauty finds are weird. I wanted this category for all of the cool makeup and beauty related items I find that need more of a spotlight than just a review. These will all be cool, weird or interesting beauty items I’ve found that can either be for makeup, skincare, hair or nails.
Hair: Wow I didn’t realize this one is super simple but I shall explain anyway! This category will obviously be for all things hair. This will cover hair accessories, hair products/ accessory storage, hair products/accessories I love, hair product/accessory testing, hair hauls, different ways to do your hair, when I get my hair done etc.
#Beautytrends & #Beautyhacks: Not all categories are straight forward like this one. For this category it will cover ALL things beauty from makeup to hair to skincare to nails. I will try out trends or hacks that are circulating around the beauty community. I might even share a few of my own!
Decor: With this category I will be covering everything that has to do with decor. That includes how to do a flat lay properly, how to decorate small/big spaces, different styles of decorating, decor items I’m loving, decor hauls and more!
My Subscription Boxes: Since I am subscribed to more than just a beauty subscription box, subscription boxes will be under the lifestyle category where I will obviously cover the subscription boxes I have. I will also cover different subscriptions I’ve tried and more.
For The Love Of Shopping: This category is a more complex one. This is where other shopping hauls will go that aren’t under the fashion or beauty category. It will also be a category where I talk about sales that are going on, hauls of things I’ve found in different stores, where to shop for different things, and even “come shopping with me” adventures.
Do It Yourself: I am an avid crafter and DIYer. I just had to have an area for me to share my creativity. With this category I will be sharing DIY projects with you all that I do or assist in doing. I will also be posting crafting ideas, crafting tips and more here as well.
Travel The World: If you’ve been following my blog for a while you would know that I had a travel section before. This category will be my new travel section which is where I will be sharing my travels, travel stories, travel tips, travel shopping hauls and more.
Relationships: I will continue to post date ideas but I also am interested in blogging more about relationships in general. Thus, why I added a general category of just relationships. I will share date ideas, girls night ideas, dealing with different situations in relationships, and more.
Mother Of Dogs: If you read my post from two days ago then you saw that Ryan and I rescued a puppy! She is the cutest thing ever and we love her very much. We also have two other family dogs as well. One being a dog my parents adopted and the other being my sisters dog that we ended up taking in. So in a way I am basically like Khaleesi from Game Of Thrones with three dragons 🐉. Which is why I named this category Mother Of Dogs. It is here that I will be sharing my dog adventures (mostly with my own dog because she is more socialized than my two older dogs who are way too hyper and not socialized to bring out in public), I will be sharing products we get for our dogs, dog related hauls and more!
Life Updates: Probably Still A Mess: Does anyone else feel like life is just one big mess we are all just trying to navigate? Although I don’t truly feel like my life is constant chaos, there is definitely times where I feel like I need a well deserved vacation. Well, I will continue to make life update posts but now it will be more frequently than previously.
Q&A: Lastly, there is a Q&A category still. This is where I will hold all of my Q&A posts. To ask me questions for my next Q&A you will have to comment those questions on the most recent Q&A.
That’s everything to expect from my new categories. What can you expect from me? I will be continuing to post daily to every other day depending on my level of business for that week. There will be other changes made like a page where you can buy straight from my Etsy store and some minor tweaks. Otherwise this website is perfect and I couldn’t be happier. I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content and make sure to comment down below what subcategory post you’re most excited to read.
