Hi friends, and welcome to my very first blog post! After fantasizing about running my own fashion and lifestyle blog for a while, I’ve finally decided to put aside all of my excuses and go for it! I’m so excited to share my experiences, as well as my favorite styles and products with you guys. I figured I’d start off by telling you a little bit about myself…
Who am I?
Hi, I’m Laura! A 28-year-old newlywed writer with a lifelong love of both words and clothes. I was born in Brooklyn but mostly raised in Central New Jersey and my style definitely reflects that—I tend to go back and forth between laid back, comfy clothes with sweeter vibes and edgy statement pieces that turn heads.
I am most definitely a bargain shopper, which will be reflected in some of my future posts with outfits and links to buy. I’m all about saving money but still getting quality items that look awesome and are made to last, so hopefully I’ll be able to help you guys find some great deals and offer up some style inspiration that won’t break the bank!
Why start a blog?
This blog just feels like the perfect way to combine two of my passions. I work full-time as a copywriter in the pharmaceutical industry, and while I absolutely love what I do, my job involves a lot of medical research, referencing, and fighting to be able to say the things I want to. Blogging will be a creative outlet for me—a way to be able to write the things I want and unwind at the end of a long workday.
I also really enjoy experimenting with looks and mixing/matching pieces to create new ones. I get a lot of questions about where I buy things from, and my family is constantly making fun of my vast clothes and shoes collection, so I figured I could document everything on here and provide some inspiration/ideas.
What type of content will I post?
Mostly fashion and lifestyle with my own personal twist, including seasonal guides and favorites, great sales and hauls with links to purchase, and some other fun tips and tricks that I find useful (I just got married so I have tons to share about my experience with wedding planning). I also like to cook, so I’ll post some new recipes I’ve found/come up with once in a while. Since I work full time, I will touch on finding balance with a crazy schedule—trust me, agency life can be insane sometimes, but there’s always a way to fit in the things you truly love and want to do!
I think that’s all for now…thanks for stopping by and getting to know a little bit about me. I hope I’ll be seeing you again soon. Feel free to drop a comment below with any questions or feedback. Let me know what you’d like to see in my posts, or if you have any beginner tips since I am just starting this blog.
Hope you all have a wonderful day and I’ll be back with post #2 very soon! <3
