It’s Friday Fun Fact time! Just thought I’d share a few fun facts about myself with you guys so that you guys can get to know me better! 🤗🤪
.
1. I never eat the complimentary airplane peanuts or pretzels that they provide on flight - I always end up handing it off to somebody else (currently LOLing because I typed this caption on my flight & just instinctually accepted their pretzels)
2. My very first Instagram ootd outfits were captured by my handy-dandy iPad (good times 🤣)
3. I was always a drifter when it came to identifying the “ideal” career path for myself. From dentistry to nutrition, I couldn’t quite seem to put my finger on what I wanted to do for a living. All I know is that I wanted my career and my work to directly help my community and move things in a positive direction - which leads to the next fun fact 😉
4. The main reason I started a fashion Instagram at first was to “cure” and “justify” my shopaholic tendencies, LOL - let me explain. I used to spend $200+ or more at Forever 21 per month & realized that I frequently bought cute outfits, but always managed to gravitate more towards my comfortable college sweatshirt and sweatpants combo, hah 🤦🏻‍♀️ To justify the amount that I spent, I decided to create a visual gallery of outfits that I’ve purchased and styled - which lead to the creation of Missmisschelle. Little did I know that starting my Instagram page would lead to a life full of connections, opportunities, and most importantly, a new career in the making ✨
.
Now it’s your turn! Name one random fact about yourself in the comments! 😉

There’s no place I rather be 😌💕 #forevermysecondhome

When today’s self-care ritual comes in the form of comfortable PJs by @shopcosabella, a DIY sugar foot scrub & mani-pedi, a good book, & a whole lotta sleep 😌💆🏻‍♀️ (And usually coffee, but not these days while I’m sick 😂) - how much more grandma could I really get? 👵🏻

This weekend reminded me about the importance of prioritizing self-care and health. After a very productive Saturday, my body suddenly shut down and I became very sick, out of the blue. Mentally, I was ready to create content for the entire weekend, but physically, my body said otherwise. I couldn’t talk without a burning pain rushing down my throat, & I couldn’t breathe at all during my sleep. But instead of embracing rest like a normal person, I grew frustrated with myself and annoyed about how I got sick over the weekend when I had already planned multiple video projects weeks ago & had my nephew’s 1st birthday party to look forward to. After talking to friends & family, they helped me come to terms with the fact that I need to prioritize taking care of myself first before I take care of anything else. I mean, what’s the point of creating half-assed work or churning out unfulfilling content if you’re not feeling 💯?
.
Thus, I will be taking the time to rest & recover for the next few days 😴 Just wanted to publish this post as your Monday reminder that we all need to listen to the signals that our body gives us, and that mental health should be just as important as physical health.
.
Remember that a healthy body & mindset will get you a lot farther in life than a mind & body that accumulates a load of sleep debt and overtime hours 🙌🏼 Besides, it’s about the quality hours that you put into your work that matter, not the quantity 💫

There’s nothin’ that makes me feel more youthful & relaxed than a good ol’ skincare routine 😌 Sharing a few AUGUST SKINCARE FAVES (including both my fave brands & their holy grail products) with y’all - find a detailed product review on the blog! Link in bio 💆🏻‍♀️

“Stocks, bonds, investments” automatically translated into “blahblahblah” whenever the topic of finances came up. From being a once uneducated finance noob to now a passionate finance geek, I have never felt in so much control of my finances until I picked up @ramit’s “I Will Teach You To Be Rich”.
.
To be honest, I was always the type of gal who told myself, “You’re only human. There’s only so many things you can know in life. You don’t need to know about subjects that others may have majored in or have a career in. Finances is one of them. Just make money, and you’ll be fine”.
.
But with this kind of narrow-minded thinking and logic, do you know who was limiting my knowledge & self-growth? Myself. By feeling disinterested towards doing any kind of financial research & remaining oblivious towards current events, I made it within my control to NOT to know about these things. As more people around me began to bring up financial-related topics, I often tried to change the subject to a topic that I had more expertise in. But I asked myself, “How long will you put up with this conversation-diverting charade, Michelle?” Not long, it seems.
.
After picking up this book, I finally got up off of my lazy, unknowledgeable-about-finances ass and actually made an effort towards changing my financial goals. Hardcore budgeting and strategic investing became the norm and finally, I couldn’t have been prouder to be on my way to “adulting” financially 💸👍🏻
.
The gist of today’s caption is to say if you are unhappy or unknowledgeable about a certain life aspect and really want that to change, don’t just wait around and expect something magical to happen. Stop waiting for the right moment, & start doing. Start creating a life that you want today - and that day starts now ✨
.
P.S. LOVE the DMs you guys have been sending me about finances, whether they are filled with your personal finance goals or questions that you have for me! There’s nothing that I love more than using my knowledge & personal experience to help better your life in some way. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to use my social platform to spread positivity and helpful advice to you all 🤗💕

Happiness is laughing hysterically without any control for your double chins. Happiness is when your friends accept you for all that you are - weirdness & more. Happiness is when you can create a business (@irose.social) from the bottom up & watch it flourish before your eyes. Happiness is when I know my work can make a positive difference in the world, one person & brand at a time. What is your definition of happiness? 🙃
