Maureen Bandari


Wow, where do I start with this update? Last year at a time like this I took a break from blogging to plan my wedding and get married. That became a looong break that has lasted almost a year. Most of you were all over my social media asking me where I am, when I am coming back and all that stuff but truth is, I didn’t know as well.

Having blogged for over 5 years I finally felt it’s time to try new stuff because I was kind of getting bored as well. For me to make changes, I had to start with my blog name. I felt I had outgrown the name and wanted something different without losing myself. Of course there is nothing that beats being myself and it was easy for me to choose personal branding and I opted to use my name instead. This will allow me to explore all the things I love from fashion, food, travel, writing down my thoughts, you name it. I therefore had to close down the funshion mistress and work on I am yet to get it to where I want it to be but we are going to take the journey together

For now, I am married, with a new blog and a baby on the way (I’m actually in my last trimester). I love it and I cannot wait to share my content with all of you moving forward. I have a lot of stuff planned out this yearΒ just for youΒ πŸ™‚ You may want to subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss out on future posts and if there is anything you want to talk about, kindly leave a comment below

    Congratulations on getting married and on being a new mom! I’m a huge fan of your blog and I’m so glad that you are back. Looking lovely as always, enjoy your pregnancy Maureen! Oh! By the way, the last trimester of pregnancy is the best time to take maternity photos, make sure you plan for a creative photoshoot if you haven’t already, you’ll cherish those photographs you’ll take πŸ™‚
