I’m Kirsten and welcome to my little corner of the internet. I’m a part-time blogger and full-time accounting graduate student. Sounds fun, right? Well, I started this blog as a creative outlet – somewhere I could escape to when the accounting numbers just became too much. As it turns out, combining something creative like blogging and something more analytical like accounting was one of the best things I could do. This blog has turned into my little passion project and gives me a way to share my life with you.
So how can I help you?
I’m successful, seasoned, and stylish (if I do say so myself) and can provide you with expert advice on getting through college and early adult life while living your young life to the fullest (and without breaking the bank)!
If you’re here because you heard I love to travel, well, you would be 100% correct. When I started this blog, I was traveling abroad almost every few months and always had a new trip to share. You can see some of my past trips in my archives! But, since I don’t travel nearly as often, I began to start writing posts that cater to the modern woman on the move. So travel tips, affordable lifestyle for a busy woman, and even local travel ideas – there is so much you can find here!
So a little more about me: I’m just your average girl with a few undeniable passions (just like you!). I’m a size 6, I don’t like working out, I eat too many tortilla chips at Mexican restaurants, I have an online shopping addiction… I’m not perfect either! Yeah, there are a few things that I’m pretty good at, and I want to share my advice with you. But everything I have is totally attainable! I’ve worked hard for everything I’ve achieved and there is so much on this blog that you can learn from.
I love connecting with other creatives, so please don’t hesistate to reach out!
About the Blog
The Wandering Brunette came about after hours of rebranding my former hobby blog with a title that I don’t care to reminisce on. I thought about rebranding this blog for a long time but finally settled on this: I am the Wandering Brunette. I’ve lived my short 22 years in several different cities (Sacramento, Reno, Redlands, and Los Angeles to name just a few) and had the privilege of being able to see a few far corners of the world. Traveling is something that really speaks to me and has shaped my personality, so it’s only fitting that it remains the name of my blog.
I started this blog in the summer of 2015, right before I stepped on a plane that left the country for 6 months. The name came naturally, not even from the idea that I spend all of my spare time traveling; the name stemmed from the fact that I can’t seem to put roots down in one place. However, I can’t spend all of my time pursuing my passion of travel, so that’s where my other hobbies come in: food and fashion.
So what is my ultimate goal with this blog?
I seek to provide young women with a unlimited source of inspiration to encourage them to chase their passions and follow their dreams.
Shortened, I like to emphasize that I am proving inspiration for “an affordable lifestyle for the modern woman on the move.” I strive to produce the best content and content that my peers can take inspiration from. Nothing I cook is too difficult for those with limited kitchen experience, no outfits I put together are outrageously expensive, and most of the trips I take are weekend trips from my part-time job budget.
If I encourage just one of you to try a recipe, put together a killer outfit for a job interview, or plan your next vacation, I’ve done my job.
So, sit back, relax, and stay a while! I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I’ve enjoyed taking the pictures and writing it.
