My name is Mélissa but I go by Mel for short. I reside in New York City and I work in the luxury beauty industry as a marketer. Thebasicx.com is a lifestyle blog launched in October 2015; a breeding ground for ideas and excitement. I hope through this magnificent medium I am able to inspire, affect a life and encourage people from everywhere through fashion, beauty, travel, and personal experiences. I feel there is going to be a lot in store, so I hope you stick around.
