Saying Goodbye to an Era

This has been something that I have been thinking about for the longest time. I started this blog back in my freshmen year of high school. I did not know what to expect out of it but I fell in love with it. It was a little baby that I created. It grew with me but over the past year, I became distant with it. I kept pushing myself to keep writing for this but I couldn’t. It was a struggle and I couldn’t force myself to continue with this project because I no longer felt the same when I first started. I lost myself my first year in college but I am still figuring out what I want. I want to keep writing and posting and taking pictures but I could no longer do it with this blog, Alis Chic.

After many back and forths whether I should continue or do something new, I created a new project. I created something more mature and actually something that I want to write about. It may be similar content but it is the new me, not the high school me.

I am sad to see this chapter close but I am excited about a whole new one. I love you for reading what I had to say for the past five years and I hope you grow with me with my new baby.

Goodbye to Alis Chic and hello to With Love From Elyse.

Follow me to keep updated with me and what I am up to!

My Girl Marilyn | OOTD

Don’t you ever have that time when you feel like dressing like a skater girl? I do! I recently bought this Marilyn Monroe t-shirt from Forever 21 (it was hard to choose between the Audrey Hepburn one as well. I have too many Audrey Hepburn things).I thought this outfit was rather different and made me feel like I should have a penny board. Yeah, I know I’m not cool. Haha.

1. I have a strong desire to travel, but I hate planes. I really cannot go by car much longer either as sitting just makes me anxious after a few hours. Despite wanting to go to London, Sydney and L.A. I cannot travel on a plane for a little more than 4 hours or else I also get anxious. As you can see I get anxious a lot.
2. A Cinderella Story is my favorite movie of all time. The movie with Hillary Duff as the main girl. I love the music they play along with the story line, I am still waiting as the outcast girl to have a kiss in the rain with the quarterback of the football team.

Favorite moment right there! ^
3. My music is completely random. Although I cannot sing I do sing to different genres of songs from the Frozen soundtrack to All Time Low to Iggy Azalea.
4. I have an obsession with bunnies! Even though I had one when I was 8, I really started wanting one again. Maybe name her Alice. I even have a bunny shaped lamp.
5. I am a hopeless romantic. If you haven’t known, I love the whole Romeo and Juliet type of stories, make sure it has a happy ending. I hope one day I can get my happy ending despite the horrors of real life.
6. The Gallagher Girls Series is my favorite series of all time! I have read each book about 5 times and I still love them. The funny moment is I feel like Cammie Morgan and I are like one person.
7. I named a sack of sugar Lucas Ashton Calum Clifford. In Psych class we had to carry around a sack of sugar and pretend it was a baby so I named it after the members of my favorite band 5 Seconds of Summer.
I would like to thank you for reading my posts along with sticking with my random posts whatever they may be about.
I kind of literally went through my Twitter feed to figure on what to put as my facts and items.

Rainy Lazy Day

1. Watching Doctor Who and catch up on Bloglovin’

MAC Makeup

PhotoWizardCreated (1)

Just yesterday, I went to the local mall and went to the MAC Cosmetics counter at Nordstrom (even though I could’ve gone to the store about 45 minutes away), I have gotten these amazing colors from there.

As I have heard that MAC is some make up Goddess, like seriously the best make up probably like ever. I have gotten everything pink for the Spring season and I can’t wait to wear it!

Materials:
Pigment: Kitchmas (some sparkles)
Eye Shadow: Let’s Skate (a pink color that uses to stick the sparkles on)
Lipstick: Raspberry Swirl ( I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS COLOR LIKE FOREVER!)

P.S. Actually I’m not a color of pink, but they all are.
