Hey! Welcome to my melissaperkins.co.

My name is Melissa (well, technically it’s my middle name) and I’m a twenty-something accounting student living in Houston, TX and working on my second degree. My first degree was actually in communications and journalism. But after working a short time in the creative field I realized that even though I love being creative, I like to do it my own way, not by someone else’s standards. Also, the opportunities weren’t as abundant as I expected. After spending months trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, I decided to start blogging as a way to stay active and creative.

My blog has been through many seasons, and has changed just as much as I have over the years. As I’m getting ready to close out another chapter of my life, (graduation May 2018) I wanted to really dedicate my blog to being a helpful resource to the ladies out there who may be going through the same situations as me. I’ve grown to love Youtube, blogs and Reddit for the information resource that they are and I want my content to be just as helpful. The new Melissa P. will cover topics related to beauty for brown girls and locs, travel tips and ideas, study and career tips/advice and health tips for mind, body and heart.

I hope you find my blog helpful and decide to subscribe to my bloglovin’ and Youtube channel so we can connect. If you have any other questions or suggestions, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email.

Thanks for stopping by!
