Hello there! If you’ve clicked on this page, then you’re probably interested in finding out who is the geeky person behind this blog. If that is the case, then I bid you a most hearty welcome.
I’m a late twenty-something who lives in her birthplace of Brooklyn, NY. I am a proud Roman Catholic and feminist, which to many is oxymoronic in and of itself, as many people do not believe that Roman Catholics can be feminists. To those detractors, I say that Roman Catholicism in its own way is inherently feminist, although culturally, we still have a great deal of work to do. More on that later.
I’ve started many iterations of this blog throughout the years. I tried starting a hair blog, but I didn’t want to just talk about hair. Then I tried starting a beauty blog, but I didn’t want to just talk about beauty. Finally, I tried starting a faith blog, but my faith is deeply ingrained in almost every aspect of my life, so separating it from my favorite pursuits was anathema to me.
It finally dawned on me one day last year that I should combine all of it. My passion for my faith, my love of the beauty business, food, travel, health, wellness, as well as my passion for connecting with women from all walks of life. As I approach the end of my twenties, I realize that I don’t want to talk about one thing. I want to talk about everything that matters, and I have every intention of doing so.
So if you’re going to come along with as I talk about things, know this: my faith will be front and center in everything that I do, but it is not going to keep me from listening to and accepting other viewpoints. There are certain labels that I may use to describe myself, but it will not stop me from speaking to others who disagree with my viewpoints, as long as we disagree respectfully. We live in a world that is increasingly investing in the idea that conversations mean nothing, which frightens me. Families are falling apart, decades-long friendships are being broken apart, and people rejoice in it. That’s not my way.
I hope that I haven’t frightened you away with my manifesto, but I’ve always believed that straight talk makes for straight understanding. If this isn’t for you, great. I wish you well.
However, if you’re still interested in reading my ramblings, then…..as we say in Spanish, ven conmigo.
Come with me.
