Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog, The Stylish Cupcake by Anita Fosen.

DSC03278-1

For the past months my life has been a long list of excuses as to why I could not blog. There was always something in the way, and when I finally had the time I ended up getting sick or feeling uninspired. I started writing for the online magazine Unwritten and suddenly I was contacted by Thought Catalog and  started as a writer there as well, all of course in addition to my university assessments which I had to get an extension for because of being ill with tonsillitis. Life has been busy you guys. I have written more words than ever before, and yet my blog remained empty. I tried to sit down and write about what was going on in my life, but realised that I had no interest in writing about it and you would have had no interest in reading about it either. So I wrote nothing.

But even though I did not feel like writing a diary blog about my daily life anymore, it did not mean I didn’t want to write at all. All I want is to write. My fingers itch after touching the familiar keyboard and every night I plan out new posts in my mind before going to bed. I knew I wanted to write, but I knew I wanted to do things differently from now on. Dipping my toe into the water of online magazine publishing, I realised that what I wanted to do was use my new knowledge and experience and encounter it into my personal blog.

And this is why I welcome you to The (new) Stylish Cupcake, written by Anita Fosen. The layout and design has changed (click to the home page to see it all), the theme and course of the blog has been tweaked a bit, but it is still The Stylish Cupcake and I am still Anita Fosen. I will still write as I always have and I will still be the same person with the same passions, I will just do things a bit differently from now on. I want to give you quality content on fashion, food, beauty, blogging, travel and (maybe most importantly) life lessons. I want to write the type of posts that I myself read and save on a daily basis, and the posts that I wish I could have read but can’t seem to find anywhere. I want to introduce weekly series, familiar ones like my Monday Readings and completely new like my Beauty Product of the Week. I want to dive more into the ocean of beauty blogging and show you my favourite looks and products. I want to continue to share with you my outfits and restaurant reviews. I want to write even more personal pieces on life lessons, because we all need some encouragement from time to time. I want to be there for you, my readers, as you have always been there for me.

I hope you will follow me on this new journey I have decided to take, and join me as I try, fail and succeed. All I can say for now is that I am extremely excited to be back, and I can’t wait to start writing and publishing again.
