Hello once again my beauties!

I’ve been hard at work this week trying to get ELUDED ltd (my creative brand) back up and running. For about a year now, I’ve been posting my artwork and stories under House Of Ele, but I felt it was time for a rebranding. ELUDED is a name that I’ve used for over 10 years for a couple of ventures. It’s been out of use for a little while, but it was finally time for it to make a comeback.

Other than work, I’ve been getting ready for another life event this week. On Sunday, October 11th, I turn the ripe ol’ age of thirty-two. My birthday really snuck up on me this year. Last year, after turning thirty-one, I had a little bit of a crisis. I was feeling the pressure to reach a benchmark of some sorts. I think it happens to all of us. It’s that feeling that you should have made it further along in life than you have. You may also start to think that somethings will never happen. This past year, I’ve been working out those feelings, while trying my best to push forward. This birthday, I’m not having those thoughts, so I must be doing something right.

This is the first in a few years that I’m actually looking forward to getting older. I used to dread the idea of my age taking a toll on my appearance. I know, how vein of me. It’s strange though, I think I actually look far better now than I did in my twenties. Beyond that, I have another year of life experience, which has actually helped me figure out how to avoid a lot of life pitfalls and speed bumps. It’s worth the wrinkle or two, if you ask me.

I am not entirely sure what the plans for the big day are, as of yet. I can say that I will be decked out as ever, with my family and loved ones.

Next week, I’m sure I will have a lot more to say. For now, I’m back to work, but I might just take a break to kick my heels up and have a drink. 😉


Escape The Ordinary,
