Sooo what's going on with Spiced Beauty?

I know that I haven't really and publicly put this out there but I changed my blog name. 
My blog is now called MY SPICED LIFE.

The first question, I got was why....
I started this blog at 23 years old, living with my family having a boyfriend and just finishing college. I was BORED.  Now i'm in my early 30's, living with my husband(same guy I dated for 10+ years) and owning my OWN business. 

My views and likes/dislike have changed drastically. 

I know that some people are asking "Will this still be beauty blog?" 
Beauty is still one of my first loves. It will NEVER go away. I still have had numerous people.. not just WOC come up to me and tell me that I was one of the first Beauty Blogs that they found in Canada. But I want to share other stuff of my life without being confined to just beauty. Like my love of travel, electronics, food, random events.... I could go on and on. 

Also Wedding things. 
I didn't really get to divulge during the time because I took more of a hiatus to plan but there still a lot of things I want to share with you guys! 

Please let me know your thoughts! So being that a lot of blog related info and I don't think I have done a tag in a while! I want to share some info about my life and maybe share some little titbit that you don't know about me.

Is this your only blog?
Yes, this is my baby that I created in 2008 and it is still up and running.

What is your blog about?
I started out as a beauty blog now I've decided to officially a branch out and tackle more things that I like. I've been told for years, that I need to do more than beauty.  Now that I'm getting older and married, my priorities have changed and there are several things that I'm interested in which I feel like my "audience" would be interested in as well.

Why are you still doing this?
I won't lie.. I debate this all the time. I've put A LOT of work into her but I do sometimes feel like it goes nowhere.. I know why but I won't get into the politics of life.
Let me put it this way- As I said before- every time I want to quit I met someone who tells me not to.

Where do you see your blog in 5 years?
If you told me in 2009 that my blog would be still is around, I don't know if I would've believed you. I have no idea at all. In 5 years...maybe not here. Things change so easily.

What does your blog name mean?
I really wanted something that reflected my skin tone/culture. I told myself that I wanted to be a Toronto Beauty Blogger. So then Spiced Beauty was born. Now I think it's more of a life movement so that's why I changed it to My Spiced Life.

What are your goals when it comes to this Canadian Blog?
I think my main goal is to get somebody to try something new! Sometimes you need somebody to be the guinea pig. Sooooo that's me!

Secondly, to show other darker WOC that there are products for our skin tone. I hate meeting people who tell me that they cant find a red for their skin tone or that they can't find a good eyeliner. My answer: It's out there! If you can't find it. I'll find it for you.

If you have any questions: Leave them below and I'll answer then in another post.
