Personal note: From Me to You.
BHLM was created to document my everyday style. When I started BHLM, I never had any idea of the potential of starting a blog. I started BHLM to document my life, like a digital album that I can use to reference my past. Little did I know about the journey that I would have with this child of mine.
Coming to the name of my blog, the intention was never to start a fashion/ style blog. Hence I did not add anything related to style in the blog name. Instead, I used my personal signature to name something that is so close to me.
BIG hair does not imply a voluminous hair contrary to what it sounds like. I’m a person who changes my hairstyle/ hair-colour very often and LOUD mouth stands for my love of bold lip-colours that I’m rarely seen without. Hence a characteristic of me, one that everyone associates me to, is my ever changing hair and my bold lips which had to become my blog name BIG hair LOUD mouth! Tada! Now you know! ( I won’t begin to write how many people have asked me to repeat my blog name because of the mixed reactions that it gets)
I have always wanted to document things happening in my life via my blogposts hence I write about everything that I love. Since I love dressing up a lot, BHLM gained popularity as a Personal Style Blog. But it doesn’t just end there, for my love for learning new makeup techniques also enabled me to start a Beauty Section and the wanderlust in me motivated me to start a Travelogue section, which will hopefully be filled with contents from across the continents in the years to come.
BHLM turns 5 in June 2017, a baby that grew with grainy pictures of an awkward woman in her early twenties, sneaking to take pictures for her blogpost with the help of her colleagues in Yahoo! during office breaks, to a kid that now has fairly well edited, good resolution pictures of a woman in her mid twenties, who gave up her IT career to pursue her passion and I can’t wait to grow BHLM into the teenager version, nurturing its growth as I grow along with it.
