When I initially started this blog back in 2014, I had a different vision than I do now. The “Skinny Belle” name was supposed to be the go-to source for all things lifestyle, fitness, food, etc. Over the last 5 years I’ve grown a lot and learned a lot about myself. Where I’m at right now, I don’t believe anyone is the “go-to source” for anything. We are all just big kids trying to figure life out, and do our best. I don’t want to pretend I am perfect, and don’t think I’ve ever done so. That’s where I have been going with my videos for the last year or so. Trying my best to be brutally honest about my shortcomings, failures, and struggles. Simultaneously, I have learned a thing or two in my day and DO have some awesome tips and tricks for you. Whether it’s about dating, beauty, or food… I DO have a lot to say on those subjects! And somewhat consider myself an expert? No. Not expert… just a friend, who has experienced things just like you.
What I am trying to get at with my rambling today, is I’ve made the decision to move away from the Skinny Belle brand and self-title my blog, videos, and other content. It feels right. This gives me the freedom to be ME. Which god knows is an ever changing construct (help?? haha!) I want to have the ability to not always be perfect. Skinny Belle just sounds… too proper. If you’ve been watching my videos for the last 6 months or so, you know I’m the farthest thing from proper.
Not sure if this decision warrants an announcement, but I thought I’d let you know the reasoning behind the change. Albeit small, it is meaningful to me.
Thanks for listening, or uh.. reading lol. The gist of what I am trying to say is I want to be unapologetically me, and the only way I know to do so is through my own name.
OK, that’s all for today! TBH it’s been forever since I’ve done a written blog and I really miss this. Old school haha!
Bye bye, love you.
