How it all began…

Like every other blogger I know, I began my love of webdesign with Expage, which to my dismay is no longer available for the up and coming blogger. Sad, I know. Who could forget those pixel dolls, blinkies, and CSS shops? From Expage I moved onto geocities where Lulu hosted me on her old domain. We became great friends, and we still write to each other. In 2003, I became the owner of, a personal blog and domain that documented my daily life as a high school student and book enthusiast. When I began college, I started to want a new online identity. I’ve always been known by friends and family as “the girl with the curly hair,” so I decided to make that part of my online image and settled on the name

This website began as a simple blog that documented my life as a college student and slowly evolved into a health and beauty blog as I began documenting my weight loss in early 2007. Now, Curls has found its happy medium as a lifestyle blog that centers on fitness, recipes, cruelty-free beauty, and the daily life of an English teacher who loves to feel great both on the inside and out.

I currently accept paid and sponsored posts since I am just as much of a product junkie as some of my other bloggers. For more about that portion of my blog, please visit my PR page.
