Happy Monday guys! I received an email last week from a woman who wanted to know a little more about Bright Stripes and why I chose to start it. If you're interested, take a gander. If not, the winner of the PCA Skin Care kit is posted below. :)
Q: Why did you start Bright Stripes?
A: For years I was told that I should start a blog. A blog focusing on fashion, beauty and all that comes with. I never really put a lot of thought into it until around the middle of last summer. My little family was dealing with something very difficult and I needed an out. Something to "take me away" from the crap I was dealing with at home. I was excited for the new adventure. I scoured the internet for fun ideas. I had never even looked at another style or mom blog until that point and was in 'awe' of how many strong, stylish, amazing women (and men) were out there! I knew then and there that I wanted to be a part of this exciting community. I have connected with some incredible people through my blog and I am so grateful for each and every reader that I have. Receiving your emails and questions about items in my posts are what keep me doing it. You guys are awesome and I just want to thank you all. :)
Q: How did you come up with the name Bright Stripes?
A: Easy. My son, Brighton. He is my all. He has been my strength through my hardest trials and has been the only reason why I've even gotten out of bed for months on end. He challenges me and continues to make me want to strive to not only be a better mother, but person in general. He has brought such a "brightness" into my life that I wanted to reflect that into this blog. He always loves to look at my posts and tells me what is "pretty" and "cool" and what's not. So, if you see things you like on here, you can thank him for letting them pass the cut. :) Oh, and I'm a big fan of stripes.
Q: What is your favorite thing about your blog?
A: Like I mentioned earlier, one of my favorite things is connecting with people. It's been so great getting to know other bloggers and feeding off of each other. But one of my favorite things about my blog is being able to share my thoughts. I love online shopping and finding fun and unique pieces so when I do, I get to share them with you all. And that makes me happy. :) Both Bright Stripes and my integrity mean a lot to me, so I can assure you that you will never see anything on here that I don't either already own, or would like to own.
Thanks to Jessica for emailing me these questions to answer! It was fun.
