07 Aug Hello, my name is…
Have you ever been to an event where you have to wear one of those big red stickers that say “Hello, my name is…” and you write your name in the blank space? There is always at least one person that tries to be cool and ends up writing a stupid name that resembles more of a dad joke than a James Bond introduction (Bond, James Bond in case you missed it). Well, starting this blog kind of felt like that.
When I first decided to create this blog, so many ideas came to mind that fell into place. Colour schemes, layouts and fonts came naturally but it was the name that took the longest. I don’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to names. In 2013, the morning after a Beyonce concert in Sydney I impulse purchased a beautiful Beaglier puppy. It was love at first sight. When I left the store her name was Mimco, it was so official that I had it engraved on her collar and by the time we got home 2 hours later, her name was Nala (her name is still Nala in case you were wondering).
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always found there to be power in a name. I wanted the perfect name, the name that stood out and just screamed fashion, style and elegance, the name that would stand the test of time. Well over the past few months I slowly came to the realisation that no name would ever be more relevant than my own.
So in saying all of that… Hi, I’m Mel. This blog is essentially everything about me and the things I love – fashion, beauty, food and travel. It’s going to be a journey but I’m hoping you’ll join me for the adventure ahead.
