Hi! I am Rachel and I am so excited to be starting this blog with my best friend Lauren! Knowing each other for 13 years is one of the things I am most thankful for in life. After moving to my hometown in second grade and jumping into things mid-year, I thought it would be difficult. But one little brown-haired girl sitting in a desk cluster shouted out “Mrs. Williams, she can sit over here!” and the rest is history. Now we are all grown up (sort of!) and living together while attending the same university. It could not be more fun and its kind of scary sometimes how much we have in common and know about each other!
Why did we want to start this blog? It’s no surprise that we love similar things in life: cooking, fashion, decorating, traveling, and finding new hobbies to do together. Basically, we want to share our ideas, finds, and friendship with anyone and everyone! Our blog will be a positive and fun atmosphere where ideas can be shared and it will be something great to keep all of our memories we don’t want to forget in a safe place! So get ready for lots of laughs and I can’t wait to start this new adventure with my best friend!
Hey guys! I’m Lauren and I cannot even begin to express how excited I am to begin this journey. I don’t want to brag but I seriously have the most supportive, loving, and kind best friend in the whole world (but I am a little bias)! I mean, she’s practically my other half. We’ve been inseparable since the second grade. She even stuck by my side after my horrid eyeliner mistakes in the eighth grade (that’s true friendship). There aren’t many people that can say they went through the crazy roller coaster, that is college, with their best friend. Thankfully, I am one of those people! And now we get to tackle blogging together and I couldn’t be more excited!
Why did we start this blog? Who would’ve thought that 13 years down the road, we would be starting a blog together? Definitely not us! But at the same time, I know this is kind of what we were meant to do. I mean, we get to share our favorite things in life with you guys, what more could we want! I’m just going to tell y’all right now… we laugh… A LOT. BE PREPARED! Sometimes we’ll be very serious and get down to the nitty-gritty, but for the most part, we want this to be a fun place to showcase our memories! To quote the Cheetah Girls, “The party’s just begun!!”
Where did our name “Besties with Bliss” come from?
Obviously, we are best friends! We have so much in common and always have fun together, so in our minds, that equals bliss!
Why did we start a lifestyle blog?
Living together for three years, we have found out who we truly are and what we are passionate about. We have a love for an abundance of things in life and thought it would be fun to share that with other people!
Where are we based?
It sounds cheesy, but Texas Forever! We grew up for most of our life together in a small town. And by small, we mean SMALL. After high school, we didn’t get far from home and are attending a small town university! For the most part, our blogs will consist of us visiting towns all around Texas that we adore but also plenty of experiences from our own kitchen and living room.
Who are our favorite bloggers?
There are so many! But these two are our faves.
Sarah Tripp – @SassyRedLipstick. She is curvy and confident and loves pink and Chanel!
Rachel – @Austinfoodstagram. A Texas girl like us who just really loves food!
Where is our favorite place to shop?
Old Navy, Kohls, TJ Max, and Marshalls just to name a few. We love to find thrifty and cute clothes at a low price!
