Dear Readers of,

On Monday, June 2, 2014, the server my blog was hosted under needed to go through a standard change, and I was told Life Unrefined would be up and running again in a day or so. On Wednesday, June 4, 2014, I was told that due to a series of unforeseen circumstances, my blog got wiped out in the process.

Knowing that nearly two years of work can just disappear in an instant has been difficult for me to swallow. Though most of my writing and photos can still be temporarily accessed through Google’s cache, and I could potentially start piecing some of my blog together again, the thing I mourn most is that I have lost all my readers’ comments and those can never be recovered.

Thank you to all the readers who have continually visited my site, and supported me through my journey. Thank you to those who have not only expressed their opinion about my weekly outfits, but also engaged in the times I spoke more personally from the heart.

Thank you mostly for just letting me be me.

I have currently decided to take a break and rethink the purpose of my blog. The tentative plan is to relaunch Life Unrefined again by the end of summer.

If you have any thoughts, questions, brilliant ideas, or just want to receive a notification when Life Unrefined is live again, please send me an email at lifeunrefinedblog (at) In the meantime, I can still be found on Instagram and Facebook.

Stay true. Stay authentic. I still believe that’s when we’re the most beautiful.

With love,
