First outfit photo! (Yikes...red eyes.)
When I came up with the original name, Bon Chic Bon Gastronomique, I wanted to convey my love for style, food, and all things French. It was a play on the expression "bon chic bon genre," or BCBG, which usually refers to preppy, "yuppie" style. I wanted my (made up and grammatically questionable) title to mean "good style, good appetite". However, as you can imagine, typing "bon chic bon gastronomique" got quite old.
A favorite look from the archives.
VISION: to be an ambassador for the busy, budget-minded woman.
MISSION: I believe that the good life is attainable for all. I share my personal style, kitchen creations, and everyday life to inspire women to discover their own good life.
GOALS: My brain is buzzing constantly with all the things I want for this little space of mine. A few goals at the top of my list:
- Collaborate more. There are so many bloggers and brands that I'd love to work with. Put myself out there.
- Be (more) involved in my community. I've said it before, but Kansas City, and its blogging scene, ROCKS. While in-person networking isn't my strong suit, again, I need to put myself (my live, real, homebody self) out there.
- Turn blog life into real life. By that, I mean that I'd like to use this space as a jumping off point to find a career that I love. Sure, I'd love to turn this into a full-time gig, but I'm not sure how I could (realistically) make that work. However, what I've discovered since getting back into blogging over the last couple of years is that I love to write. I need to write. Eventually, I want to turn writing from a hobby into something that pays the bills.
