You know that same little face you see popping up here and there as you navigate through the pages of this blog? Well, that’s me. My name is Kirsten and I’m the face behind everything that goes on around here. After several years now in the business school, you would think I have this ‘elevator pitch’ somewhat nailed down by now, so here it goes:
I’m a business major attending school at the University of Arizona – Bear down! (P.S. If you want to know the story of why we say ‘bear down’ and we’re the wildcats, message me. I was a tour guide at the U of A so I know everything.) I created this blog way back in my freshman year and it quickly grew into a creative outlet for me as I progressed through my college career.
I’m a bit of a self-proclaimed social-introvert; so basically, I love being around people and socializing, but I thrive off my alone time. I’m the most creative when I get to brainstorm by myself. All those cool posts and ideas you see around here are all products of my ‘quiet recharge time.’
I love connecting with other creatives, so please feel free 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 started this blog in the summer of 2015, right before I stepped on a place 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. I’ve lived my short 21 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. However, I can’t spend all of my time pursuing my passion of travel as a full-time student and 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 limitless source of inspiration to encourage them to chase their passions and follow their dreams.
As a college student myself, 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 for the average college budget, 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 crack open that bottle of wine because I’m doing the same. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I’ve enjoyed taking the pictures and writing it.
