nice to meet you, cat


tell us about yourself...

Hi ya! My name is Cat and I blog over at
BrideBlu. I love animals but hate spiders {but can never bring myself to squish them when I find them in the house; so, instead, I trap them and let them go outside}. During the day, I work for the man ... in the retail world ... but happily moonlight as a blogger. I also dapple in jewelry making.


what is your favorite thing about blogging...

Meeting new people, hands down. I am amazed at the number of bloggers I have meet through my journey ... many of which I would call friends. The blogging world is one filled with much love, support, and amazingly talented women {and men!}. I am proud to be a part of such a powerful, inspiring community!

who are your favorite artists & designers?

A quick look through my blog and I think that it is fairly apparent that I feel a magnetic attraction to the independent/local artist community.
Etsy is an amazing world that I could get lost in for days! At one point in my life, I really, really, really wanted to be a fashion designer and still find myself drawn to this world as a spectator {primarily through my glossy addiction...Vouge, InStyle, Allure ... to name a few!}.

favorite food, movie, city, and store:

food :: my favorite guilty pleasure is candy ... with black licorice and taffy at the top of the list.
movie ::
I am all over a romantic comedy like white on rice ... if Vince Vaughn is in the line up, I am pretty much guaranteed to love it {I have a serious crush on Mr. Vaughn}. Though if I had to call out a single movie, I am going to go with
Along Came Polly {no Vince but the romantic comedy rings clear and true}
city ::
there is so much of this crazy, inspiring world that I have yet to see but drawing from my travels to date, I would have to say Cat Island, a small island in the Bahamas {not technically a city but a small enough island that it could be!}. Hubs and I went there for our honeymoon and I quickly realized that I have an "island girl" inside me just dying to get out. Maybe someday {fingers crossed!}

store ::
Sephora makes me a bit weak in the knees

one of your favorite summertime memories is...
Flea markets. Nothing beats spending a warm, summer day, strolling the grounds of a flea market. It is like a treasure hunt ... only no eye patches, parrots, or ratty treasure maps.

any advice for first time bloggers/business owners?
Be yourself. One of the greatest things that has happened to me {which was totally unexpected} was finding my voice through blogging. I have always been a bit on the introverted side but since blogging I have started to come out of my shell ... not only on my blog but in my "real life" too.
