Back in 2009, I had a little blog titled Vanessa’s Runway on Blogspot (which has now been taken over by someone else – hopefully you’ll always wind up here though!). I had a lot of fun expressing myself creatively and meeting new and interesting woman from all over. At the time I was fresh out of college and working part time trying to land a full time job, so the blog became a hobby that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Unfortunately due to time constraints and not having a clear vision of where I wanted to take my blog, I decided best to delete it a couple years later. I knew I wanted to come back to blogging, but was just waiting for the right time. There are so many great blogs out there, amazing woman sharing their stories, their secrets, recipes, closets – it’s so inspiring. Before I was unsure of my vision for my blog, but today I’m a little older, wiser and more confident. Truth is I’m just like you. I love glamour, but on a budget. I love experimenting with new recipes that look great, but are super simple. I love home decor, but want one of a kind pieces that won’t break the bank – so I do a lot of DIY projects (and believe me those are SUPER simple too!).
As you can probably assume, the blog will focus on style from high to low end, beauty reviews, local hot spot discoveries and fun DIY projects. I want to inspire woman to feel glamorous in any shape or shade. I won’t put my name on something I don’t believe in. I also won’t follow trends just because they’re all the rage. I’ll be keeping this genuine, because in realty most of us can’t afford Valentino shoes or would dare to wear them from 9-5pm. We’d also probably prefer a basket of fries over a small box of macaroons, am I right?
Join me on my adventures, let’s share and discuss! xo
