Hello, all! Like the new topic title? I do. I've used "From the Trenches" for so long, I decided it was time for something new. Which brings me to what has got to be the most asked question in my Inbox. And I have been meaning to answer you, I just couldn't find the right words. Well, all that's changed, so here goes:
(To paraphrase, like, 30 questions):
Hey! I liked 'Holy Matrimony'! What gives? Aren't you concerned about confusing your readers/potential clients?
First of all, thanks everyone for your interest in me! I am forever grateful that I have such great bloggy friends out there watching my back. Now to answer your question:
This answer has three parts.
1. I wanted something new and dynamic. I love making a splash! I always have. Goldiluxe started as a little dream I had nearly 4 years ago. The seed grew while I work as a bridal consultant and finally blossomed sometime during the planning of my wedding. I immediately began cultivating, blogging, dreaming and scheming. The closer I got to taking Goldiluxe public, the more I knew I needed something I could really get behind. After brainstorming over 50 titles, meeting with my besties for critiques and copious amounts of soul-searching, Goldiluxe Events and Consulting was born! And you know what? I didn't worry about my readers and clients at all. I deserve something spectacular, something I can be proud of and so do all of you!
2. This year is my golden birthday and Goldiluxe represents a re-birth of sorts. On November 29th, I turned 29. 29!! Can you believe it. I always tend to wax poetic around my birthday in anticipation of another year. This year I took a long, hard look at all the things I've been through, all the things I've learned and experienced and I just felt.......new. New, at 29. Wow. Goldiluxe is a representation of the beautifully luxe life I intend to have. Goldiluxe exists to bring a piece of that spectacular beauty to you.
3. I love gold! I mean, seriously y'all. I LOVE gold. I love the phrase, "You're golden." I love the bittersweet idea of gilded cages. I adore Golden Ages. There was a song we used to sing when I was a Girl Scout that went like..."Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold." I loved that song. I still do. I will teach it to my children, I will sing it until the day I die. Above all, to me the idea of gold is something kind of magical. Something everlasting and wonderful.
So, there you have it. A teensy, tiny little window into Goldiluxe Events. I hope you like what you see. I do.
