Well, hello there! I’m thrilled you’re here on the newly designed Winsome & Gold blog!
Here’s a little FAQ to answer all those questions of yours!
Did I really need yet another creative outlet? YES! I can’t get enough. My last blog (MFD) was a blast but I wanted to take Winsome & Gold in a different direction. Writing about business type things wasn’t really getting me as jazzed as I’d have liked. Winsome & Gold has a life + style focus so in the coming weeks, months & years – you’ll find tons of content relating to design, fashion, interiors, beauty, my personal life, travel, inspiration, and SO much more.
How bout’ that name?
I’ve wanted to get W & G off the ground for quite some time so a few months ago Pearce (my husband) and I sat down and brainstormed names for HOURS. He came up with some pretty outlandish stuff. I made a list of about 50 things I loved (think: ocean, blue, gold, magnolias, Mexican food) and started throwing things together. Some of the combinations were pretty adorable so I headed to my trusted friend Google to see if the domain was taken. How’d that work out? Let’s just say there are a LOT of blogs out there. I fell in love with Winsome & Blue but after a few hours of meditating on it, it sounded a bit… depressing. I chose Winsome & Gold because the word Winsome is one of my favorites – it means attractive or appealing in character and the old english meaning was more like cheerful and lighthearted . Fun right? As for gold – it’s just fabulous.
