My name is Melanie and my passions include, fashion, beauty and writing. I have been writing since a very young age and always especially loved writing short stories and poetry/lyrics. The name for my blog "annpaige", comes from my middle names, so it was not random, but still me!
I am a mom to a beautiful little girl and a wife to be to the love of my life! I also have a full-time job as a Brand Marketing Manager and I have two business on the side that I love doing. One is my own jelwery line Annpaige Boutique that I sell online and the other is my own makeup biz with Younique by annpaige.
I started this blog back in 2009 when I was in college. It started as a "Diary of a Fashion Student" when I was in school for Fashion Design, with posts written once-twice a semester. When I started writing articles for Vervegirl Magazine, I thought to my self, why not change the direction of my blog and do similar article/review style posts.
If you go back to some of my older posts, they are no where near what you see bloggers doing today. I am not a professional photographer and I never had the best lighting or scenes for my photos. I never intended for my blog to be anything more than a place to share my thoughts and my love for fashion and beauty.
Today, blogging is such a larger world then it once was and I never want to stop. I will always continue to share my passions on here, and I hope that you enjoy them!
