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!
This was my first time driving to Vegas from LA and had no idea it could be so beautiful! Even dusted off my Nikon and took some photos. It has been 6 months since I’ve felt creative enough to do some photography so this was pretty awesome .
