Happy Sunday! I was working on a Sunday Style tip for this weekend when it dawned on me – I never explained how I came up with the name for this blog! For those that are interested, I have a little story to share:
It all started in my college dorm room….I know, groundbreaking, but stay with me on this. For years, I knew I wanted to write a blog but delayed it because I wasn’t sure of a name. All I kept thinking of was that it needed to be fun, short, unique and tell a story. Every idea I came up with until then just didn’t seem right.
So, one random day, I started from scratch. I grabbed the notepad app on my phone and jotted down every potential name I could think of with those ideals in mind.
Multiple hours and a few T.V. breaks later, I came up with “stylistic reaction!” I wanted the personality of my blog to match this entity that had a chic sense of style, the ability to take on every situation with grace and a love for sharing the best information. (Think Audrey Hepburn or Emma Watson as a journalist.)
Once that was settled, all I had left to do was pick a specific topic! Since I love to help people, write about fashion and find a good travel bargain, nothing seemed like a better focus than fashion and lifestyle on a budget.
Every college kid and 20-something knows that buying what you love and not ruining your bank account isn’t an easy balance. Plus, most people have a vision of the person they want to be. If I could help people get what they want, learn how to do things the right way and maybe get their finances in order – why not?
Over 2,500 views later, I’m still following this mission. 🙂
Hope you liked my mini history lesson!
