Why I’m M.I.A & A New Start For 2022

We all know the last two years have been rough. And I am sure we are glad that 2021 is over. In addition to world events I lost my mom in 2020, nothing can really prepare you for that. It is a slow climb out of mourning but there is light at the end of tunnel. Life can be difficult we all know that, but it is true that time heals all wounds, or least lessens them. Currently I am in the process of selling my mom’s house, and as you can imagine this is no easy task.

I don’t even think I will make Fashion Week this season, I just have too much going on with selling the house and moving.

I also signed a lease on a new apartment which is great, but they do not allow pets, so in addition to losing my mom I have to find homes for her two cats. I was going to keep them but now I cannot, then my sister said she would take them, but now she says she can’t, so that is another sad element I am struggling with. Clearing out a house someone has lived in for over fifty years is no joke, and doing this with a full-time job eats up all of my time and leaves me exhausted. I don’t even think I will make Fashion Week this season, I just have too much going on with selling the house and moving. I will be glad when all of this is behind me, but this is why I have been M.I.A and I am not on the blog all that much. But I will be back soon! Wish me luck and I will see you all on the other side!


  1. Take all the time you need. I understand you have a lot going on with selling your mom’s home & rehoming your cats. I hope everything will go well & you’ll be back soon.

  2. I was actually thinking about you the other day! You’ll get through this.

  3. Praying for you and good luck.

  4. Sorry to hear what you’re going through. I definitely understand and had to do the same when my best friend passed away, it was a lot. I hope the time off will help you, time away can definitely be a good refresher sometimes. Happy 2022! Sending positive productive vibes to you for a new start!

  5. I can not immagine what you are going through… The fact that you have to sell the hause is a difficult moment, a second loss because is the place where you knew your mother was safe. I am sure that you will get through it and you will become stronger because you did what a good doughter does, you honoured your mum in every moment.
    I am sad for her cats but I am sure that they will make happy other persons too.
    Hope 2022 will give you so many beaufitul things and will repay all your sacrifices. Hugs!

  6. I wish you the strength to get through the house clearing and selling.

  7. That’s no easy feat. I hope everything goes smooth for you. Good luck. Wishing you only the best for 2022!

  8. Sending you virtual hugs, Allie! It definitely sounds like you have a lot on your plate; take all the time you need – we will be here waiting when you come back! x

  11. Sorry for all the difficult changes, I know things will get better. I am being hopeful that 2022 is a great year.

  12. Hi dear,

    trust me you will get through this!
    been there done there 🙂


  13. You have so much on your plate, especially emotionally. Take your time to sort through it all and process. The blog will be here when you are ready again!

  14. Praying for you my friend! Missing fashion week is fine and keep focusing on your needs. Wishing you a peaceful 2022.


  15. I wish you luck. Selling the home is always a lot of work….and moving is always stressful. On top of a full time job, it’s no wonder you have no time left. I hope you will find a nice home for her cats, there are people out there who are very open to adopting adults cats. All the best to you in 2022.

  16. Allie, as the others have said, take all the time you need. What you are going through takes such a tremendous amount of strength, not only physically but mentally. (((BIG HUGS))) I am truly sorry to hear that not only are you doing the selling and cleaning up, but the fact that you have to lose her cats too…I’m sure they will go to a great home though, and all will turn out well. “This too shall pass.”

  17. Oh Allie, I’m so sorry to hear this, you must take the time you need, we will be here for you when you come back 🙂
    All my best wishes and prayers sweetie <3


  18. I’m sorry to hear about you mom, it can’t be easy processing the aftermath at all. All the best!

    1. Thank you so much!

  19. Sending you hugs and prayers, Allie! I can only imagine how difficult this must be for you, and so time consuming. I will be saying a special prayer for your mom’s cats. As an animal lover (and momma to two rescue cats), my heart breaks just with the thought of that. I will be praying they get a very special, loving home, just as I’m sure your momma provided them with.

    Can’t wait to see you back again, but please take time for you during this difficult season and I have no doubt, things will become brighter for you!

    1. Thanks doll, yes it was hard, in some ways more stressful then if I had to put them to sleep. But my friend who found them the new home is a vet and of course an animal lover so I trust her judgement. Thank you for your kind words.

  20. I’m sorry that you’re facing all these struggles, including the need to find a home for your mum’s two cats. Sending you all the love in the world for you to find the best solution. Wishing you a much happier and prosperous 2022. <3


    1. Thank you, yes it was quite sad giving up the cats. But I know they are in a good home.

  21. Hi
    I wish you all the luck in the world in this delicate task of yours, I believe it’s not easy to get rid of memories, furniture and kittens!


    1. Thank you Marisa, so true!

  22. Sucess for you, and the best for you in 2022


  23. So sorry to hear about these hard things for you, I hope that 2022 will be better.

    1. Yes I hope so too!

  24. Sorry about your mom, dear. Take it easy with the selling and moving, give yourself time to rest too at least for a few days.
    Take care always, carina!


    1. Thank you so much I will?

  25. Sorry to hear that about your mum and all the hustles you going through, Allie. My sincere condolence and all the best with selling of the house. Much love to you.


    1. Thank you hun??

  26. You have my extremely heartfelt sympathy and condolences for all you have had to deal with and have been going through.
    I knew things were rough for you and your sister both financially and emotionally after your mum passed away,
    but I did not realise at the time the magnitude of it all.
    I am a sentimental person and lost both my own adoptive mother and later my natural mother many years ago,
    but did nor have to let go of as much as you have. I have felt quite sad just trying to think what to say.
    You have soldiered through it amazingly.
    I was just watching your video titled NYFW SS 2022 Vlog | ALLIE NYC – YouTube again.
    Best wishes for much better times, health, success and much happier times in Year 2022 and in all the years thereafter,
    xx <3

    1. Thank you so much, such kind words. I am sorry you lost both you adoptive and real moms, you know how it is. I am looking forward to the next chapter and kind of getting back to normal. And so glad you liked my NYFW coverage, that is my goal.

  27. Good luck with everything!


    1. Thanks doll!

  28. I’ve lost my Mom 2004 and up till now there is a void in my heart because of my loss.
    I totally get what you are going through ♥


    1. Yes it is something that is always there, you just learn to live with it.

  29. Happy New Year to you. Hope everything gets done smoothly.

    1. Thank you so much!

  30. I totally get it- you’ve got a ton on your plate. Moving is stressful, selling a house (especially one that belonged to your mom! For 50 years!) is super stressful. Sending you good vibes, babe!

    1. It is, not fun but I do have a new place so looking forward to decorating it. I will be happy to be on the other side of all this.

  31. Hope everything goes ok for you <3

    1. Thank you doll.

  32. Sending all the hugs your way with all you have going on. Grief is so unpredictable, and adding in a big move and saying goodbye to pets who are our family makes it even harder. Hopefully you can get to one of the Fashion Week events which will help you escape for a bit <3

    1. Yes I hope to get one at least lol. Yeah giving up the cats after everything else was a bit rough. And Thank you.

  33. Oh, Allie, I am so sorry for your loss! I hope everything goes smoothly and the process gets easier for you.
    Sending you all the positive vibes and love to you and your family.
    Take care, Aimsy xoxo

    1. Yes it does get better with time. Thank you.

  34. Everything is gonna be okay dear!

    Sending virtual hug and loves!


    1. Thank you for your kind words

  35. I wish you all the best for that big endeavor! It will all turn out the way it’s supposed to <3

    Lots of Love,
    Krissi of the marquise diamond

    1. Yes it will, and thank you

  36. I wish all is well with you.
    And I’m sorry about your mother.


    1. Thank you!

  37. So sorry that things are still so rough for you! I hope that you find time and space to process everything and are able to finish up the house selling process soon!

    The blog will always be here when you have capacity for it again!
