Who am I-Ally, age 29
Where- Lexington, Kentucky
Growing up I always dabbled in the creative arts. As a child I was obsessed with my Fashion Plates. The toy that had interchangeable stencils to make outfits that you rubbed a black crayon over? Yeah that thing was AWESOME!! I still have my "collection books" I made. Music and marching band were my everything in high school, and in early college. Later in college I guess you could say I started having a love affair (again) with fashion, and indulged myself. The original purpose, and inspiration for PSBA was an outlet for my love of fashion, and focused more on a budget-friendly approach. It is possible to achieve a stylish look, and not break the bank. However, after realizing there are countless (and more successful) fashion blogs out there I switched gears, and took a bit of a break to regroup what I truly wanted out of this blog.
I still needed an outlet for my creative juices, and with the popularity explosion of Pinterest I realized I really wasn't the only out there who liked to experiment and make things, and share it with others. So I honestly thank Pinterest for getting me out of my "funk", and realizing what I want PSBA to be. I'm focused more now on DIY/crafting, home decor, but still throw in the occasional fashion post. I treat this more as a journal where I like to share great finds from shopping, outfits, things I've made or updated, and the like. Working in retail doesn't allow for a lot of free time, but trust me I'm constantly looking for ways to make my home, my life, and PSBA a better place! So thanks again for stopping by!!
