Hello world! So this is happening! I’m finally starting a blog. I have to say, I’m VERY excited about this. I have been thinking about starting a blog for a long time now but never had the courage to actually do it. I come from a very entrepreneurial-minded family and they have been my biggest inspiration. My sister Lee Anne has been working on her blog, Life By Lee (formerly known as Life in ATX) for a few years now and has really inspired me to go after it. My mom is an author/blogger and I find myself on her site often thinking to myself.. why don’t I do something like this too? My step-dad is a web-developer and has his own site, webendev.com as well! Even my brother-in-law is doing his on thing and is a serial entrepreneur with three businesses under his belt already at a young age.
When my family gets together we literally pop open our laptops, put some coffee on the pot and joke about how we are now in the “incubator” where we all dream and work on new business ideas. It’s hard not to be inspired around these people I call family.
I actually stated a Youtube channel a few years ago and had so much fun doing that I wanted to also start a blog with the same name, The Scarlett Social.
So what is The Scarlett Social going to be about you may ask? I’m narrowing the blog down to a few of my favorite things in life: Fashion, Food, Home and Lifestyle.
Fashion: I’m a strong believer anyone can look fabulous without spending a ton of money. I also don’t think you need to wear expensive labels to look like a fashion blogger or a fashionista. ( after all.. we all aren’t millionaires. I know I’m certainly not close as I basically live paycheck to paycheck.) I want to help everyone look and feel like a million bucks without breaking the bank. #werkitgirl
Food: Where do I start? I’m in love with food. I love trying new happy hours in Austin, TX. I want to share some of my favorite spots with you. I love to cook. I want to share my favorite recipes with you. I literally use to hate cooking in college and moved to Europe for a few years and fell in love with it. I’ve realized cooking is easy and therapeutic.. anyone can cook and I want to help you fall in love with cooking too! #nowimhungry
Home: I remember when I was little my mom would let my sister and I redecorate our rooms and paint our walls. It quickly became one of my favorite hobbies. I’m obsessed with home decor and making my home look and feel like the most luxurious and cozy nest without spending a lot of money. I’m going to share my favorite home decor tips and also share interior inspiration photos that will make you say “ooo and ahhh.” #cozyandchic
Lifestyle: Here is where you will get a peek into my personal life. I’m sure you will hear all about my new British boyfriend, Richard often. ( He is gorgeous, hilarious and I could go on and on..) You will get to see and hear about my travels, family, every day life thoughts and quickly realize how strange I am. #scarlettsociallife
I’m SO excited you guys are here and I can’t wait for us to join this journey together. Feel free to leave comments below on any ideas you have for my blog or just to say hello! I’m currently in the incubator on coffee number two and brainstorming future posts so any ideas are welcome and appreciate.
