The Blonde+Butter Story
I’m Kelsey, a blogger and marketing manager living in the glorious city of San Diego.
I have to be honest. It sounds f*cking dumb saying I’m a blogger. Like “Oh you have a blog? Oh how interesting. My 6-year-old cousin has a blog and hers has triple the views that yours has.” I know. I get it. Everyone has a blog these days, and it’s probably about food or fashion.
So why do I blog? In short, I’ve loved writing since forever. I majored in Journalism/Public Relations in college, breezed through every English class, and have dabbled with writing for some pretty sick websites.
While writing for other sites is cool, it doesn’t exactly allow me the freedom to write whatever I please. And although I always knew I wanted to start an awesome blog that covered all my interests (and that other people would want to actually read too), I couldn’t help but get annoyed with the whole female “blogger” stigma that now exists in our crazy world of technology.
You know the girl. Her Instagram is perfect. She has thousands of followers and gets hundreds of likes for posting a photo of her spinach smoothie. She just released a new recipe on her blog that’s actually just a bowl of fruit with chia seeds on it. She travels everywhere and no one knows how. Or why. She just finished a two week juice cleanse. She posted an OOTD and it’s like a personal photographer followers her everywhere.
SHE BLOGS THAT YOU SHOULD USE COCONUT OIL INSTEAD OF BUTTER. And that is where I draw the line.
Don’t get me wrong, I follow these trendy blogger chicks all over the Instagram machine (and I like them, and I’m friends with some!). But that’s not what Blonde+Butter is about.
Blonde+Butter is a raw look at real life. It’s embarrassing dating stories, diet struggles, working as a twenty-something, celebrity gossip, pop culture garbage, life inspiration, drunken messes and a shit ton of laughs.
I’m not saying that I’ll judge you for eating the fruit bowl with chia seeds. I’m just saying that if you decide to drive through McDonald’s and get a McGriddle instead, pick me up on your way.
Butter (obviously), my cat Wizard, traveling, red wine only, cheese, burritos, dating guys I shouldn’t, my phone, trying and failing to make my Instagram look cool, my badass parents, trying weird food, Amy Schumer, Mexico, Britney Spears, starting workout programs and quitting after two weeks.
Being sick, screaming children on airplanes, when something smells in the fridge and you can’t figure out what it is, long toenails, Goldschlager, low phone battery, sweating at the club, getting speeding tickets.
