This is it. After five years of umming and ahhing, I finally took the plunge and started a blog. A blog that focuses on my passions: beauty, style, travel, and home decor. Yes, it’s yet another lifestyle blog written by a twenty-something woman. You, dear reader, must be rolling your eyes at me. There must be thousands of similar blogs out there in the ever-expanding blogosphere. But, hey, there is only one written by moi and this is it: La Vie Stella.
Just to clarify, my name is not Stella, although I wouldn’t be adverse to it. My real name is Helen. A name I love to bits even though it’s no longer fashionable. Helen is great, but it doesn’t quite roll off the tongue like Stella does. La Vie Helen or La Vie de Hélène, the proper way to say it in French, just doesn’t sound as cool. Why Stella, of all names? Well, I love star gazing, so much that I plan on getting a constellation tattoo at some point. Stella, of course, means star in Latin. It just clicked. Of the dozen potential blog names I came up with, this was the one that made the most sense to me.
Another day, another blog is born on the Internet. Here’s mine.
