Hello readers of Rachael’s blog!
I’m Miss ALK and I blog over at Southern Belle in Training! I am so honored to be guest posting on Rachael’s amazing blog, and you’ll be hearing from me about once a month! On my personal blog I write about a variety of different topics including college life, faith, singleness, friendship, fashion, beauty and whatever else happens to float my boat! I look forward to sharing about many of those topics here in the coming months, but for my first post on Rachael’s blog I thought that I’d keep it light and just share a few facts about myself!
I describe myself as a “Mainer by Birth, Southern Belle in Training by choice“: I’m originally from Maine and I lived in the same small coastal town for my whole childhood and high school years! Maine is a beautiful and safe state and I feel blessed to have grown up there, but my high school years were pretty rough and I was ready for a change of scenery by senior year. So I ended up going to college on the other side of the Mason-Dixon line, down in North Carolina. And I absolutely LOVE IT! Southern living is where it’s at, and I hope to stay down south after college! I’m currenly a sophomore majoring in communications with hopes of working in radio someday!
I am OBESSED with 90s and early 2000s music and pop culture! Oh- how I wish I could have been the age that I am now (which is 19) about tweleve or fourteen years ago. I am completely and utterly obsessed with any music from these years! Old Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez… and of course all of the one hit wonders! And don’t even get me started on *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys! I was blessed to be able to see Backstreet in concert in August 2013… it was one of the best nights of my life! Many of my favorite TV shows also aired or started during these years… my favorite TV show of all-time is 7th Heaven! I love it so much that I named my car Lucy after my favorite character.
I am a total girly-girl: I adore fashion and beauty!! I love shopping (especially bargain shopping!) and I think that putting together cute outfits is one of the funnest things about being a girl! I love bright colors and florals, and especially those two things together!
I love Indian culture: Indian cuisine is my favorite type of food, and I’m also obsessed with Bollywood movies (you can find many on Netflix with subtitles!)! I would love to travel to India someday, as well as pretty much anywhere in Asia! Asian cultures fascinate me.
I am a firm believer in being ‘from this world but not of it’: My faith is very important to me, as are my morals. I am definitely a modern girl who loves going to college and experiencing life in a new place, but I choose to stay away from behaviors like underage drinking and ‘hooking up’. I believe that life can be just as fun (if not more fun!) without lowering your standards or going against your faith!
So that’s me! I hope that you’ll be encouraged to check out my blog in the meantime, and I can’t wait to share with you here at this time next month again!
xoxo Miss ALK
