seven / blog name

The blog-tember challenge is a fun, daily blogging challenge created by the
lovely Bailey Jean of Brave Love blog.
Today is DAY SEVEN: Tell us about your blog name. Where did it come from?


My air conditioning went out a couple days ago and it kinda threw off my blogging groove, but I am here now and catching up   🙂

 

Untitledall thing britney lee

When I first started this blog over a year ago, I didn’t have a specific niche that I wanted to focus on.
I love sewing, crafting, hair and makeup…and plenty of other things and I didn’t want to limit what I could talk about by having a name that goes with a specific niche.
My name is Britney, and it was the name I liked the most at the time.

I honestly don’t 100% love my blog name…I’m a very quirky person and I love to be unique…and I just feel like “all things britney lee” sounds very generic…
It doesn’t POP…it isn’t memorable…at least to me it isn’t.

But I don’t know what name I would change to!!
I still would like to have a niche-less name, something weird but catchy.
I would love something with a PUN!! I love puns!

Do you like your blog name?
Why did you name your blog what you named it?
I’d love to know!!

two / the perfect day

The blog-tember challenge is a fun, daily blogging challenge created by the lovely Bailey Jean of Brave Love blog.
Today is DAY TWO: Describe your ideal day. Where would you go and what would you do?


The perfect day…I can come up with a million different scenarios depending on how I’m feeling at the moment.

and then there’s the perfect REALISTIC day that could actually happen…
and the perfect day where I do all the things I love and could ever want and it would have to be 1000 hours long.

They both start out the same…
First, I’d wake up early with no alarm, and feel totally rested. Then Brodie and I would cuddle in bed for a little and then get ready for the day. My hair and makeup would look great and not take forever…Put on some clothes…

Then BRUNCH! Brunch really is way better than breakfast. Your stomach has been awake for little bit so it isn’t angry at you for eating all the eggs, hash browns, pancakes, and bacon you want!

Then we would head back home and I would work on some sewing, blogging, or crafting while blasting music. I would be ULTRA productive and get so much done and feel like super woman!

crafts

Now this is where real life and fantasy life would be different…

FANTASY: Of course I would have to include Disneyland! We would magically teleport there with our entire families and spend the rest of the day at there. We would ride all the rides and eat all the snacks!! Dole whip, beignets, matterhorn macaroons…We would watch the World of Color show in California Adventure…then ride more rides!

disney

OR: Brodie and I would go to a comic convention, like WonderCon again, and I would dress up again!! It was such a fun experience to do that and it was so fun meeting new people there!

REAL LIFE: Brodie and I would go to the movies and see whatever new disney, marvel, hunger games, etc movie that came out and then we would meet family for dinner or it would just be the two of us, depending if we want to be alone or not and then we would come home and watch some Netflix shows or movies while cuddled in bed til we fall asleep   🙂

 

What would your perfect day consist of?

DAY FOURTEEN: why am i blogging?

when did you start blogging and why?


keep calm

i started my blog and made my first post (which you can read here) on the 20th of february. it feels like forever ago but it also feels like yesterday. i had grand plans of posting all the time but didn’t set goals for it…so i didn’t post for a couple months. so i RE-STARTED and my “first” post that kick started my actual consistent blogging was posted on the 3rd of july.(read that one here) i am excited to say that my goal of once a week has been met so far and now exceded with blog-tember and posting everyday!

there are many, many reasons why i started this blog. none of them are more important than the other.

– i started discovering bloggers and their blogs and loved how much inspiration i got from them. i wanted others to look to me and feel about me how i feel about them.

– i want to inspire people! whether that be making something, trying a new makeup/hair style, loving themselves more, getting through something tough in life, laugh at something, etc.

– i want to have my own little slice of internet to do whatever and write whatever i want. and be whoever i want! i’m keepin’ it real, yo.

– i want to make friends! at my age it’s really hard to find people that have time to spend at the same time you have some to spend. everyone is working or in college or both. like my husband. i’m pretty lonely a lot of the time.

– i want to grow this little blog into something amazing. i want people to come here and feel at home and feel just as inspired as they do when they are on pinterest.

– something that i’m adding to my list that wasn’t there when i started is that i realized i really just love to write! i never really liked it growing up but i think that’s because i had specific assignments in school with specific parameter of how long and what format. it didn’t let me be creative!

i am so excited to grow this blog into something and have it be a creative outlet for me!

why did you start blogging? if you don’t have a blog, and you’d like to, then you should do it!!
