Hello, world!

I've been thinking about this first post for a long time now and the reality of it is nothing like I had envisioned. If I continue to wait until conditions are exactly the way I've been imagining, I will never give life to this thing.

My vision for the birth of Missellanea required an entire team including a photographer, web developer, graphic designer, hair stylist and make-up artist. I also needed to land a major retailer who would sponsor a weekly makeover feature, and I needed to pre-write at least three months worth of content.

I've given myself permission to set aside my unrealistic expectations, dive in, and let it evolve.  So, here I am. It's just me.  Let's do this.
