First, thank you for coming to my page and exploring it enough to be here at my “About” Page! 🙂 I am so excited for this journey of blogging and I am so glad you are here!
My name is Raka’ Pinkerton and I am the creator of Branded Blonde! I have thought long and hard about doing this blog till December of 2017 came and I finally decided to publish it where it is open to you all! My family and friends were the main back to this blog, they encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and do something that they thought I would be great at. So here I am hoping to encourage YOU, give you new ideas for fashion, food or inspiration for the day! (P.s. if you are a blogger reading this and you designed your own website from scratch like I did, you know that it takes a lot of time and patience! I have been working on my website since September ya’ll! So I am so excited it is published and I am so excited that I keep feeling inspired by you all to stay after it! It has always been something I have wanted to do!
Ok so lets get to the point! Here is a little info about me! I am a 22 year-old girly girl, and a senior at The University of Arkansas! Scary, right!? Only the senior part! Haha. I get so many “What are you going to do after you graduate” questions. I feel like you never know what you are going to do until you work for it and God puts the opportunity right in front of you! You can do SO many things in life and you are never stuck, so venture out and try new things! This is another random fact about me, I am very driven and I love Jesus. I believe that everything happens for a reason and that God always has a plan for every single one of us! So as being a senior or just anyone, trust God and stay connected with him. He will lead you to where you are suppose to be as you put in the work for it!
I grew up close to Fayetteville, which is in Arkansas! The town is not super big but its not super small either, it is the perfect medium! Some of my favorite things to do in Fayetteville (or NWA) are shopping, go to fun local places, go to the Farmer’s Market, go to the trail, take my dog on walks and go to Whole Foods. I love eating healthy and I love to cook so that is where the Farmer’s Market and Whole Foods come into play!
I have a little Maltipoo and her name is Lola! She has my heart! I just got her this past November and she has brought so much joy to my life! If you follow me on Instagram I am sure you will be seeing her. I may even do a post on here about her! She is big fluff ball that is full of love and kisses! Haha.
I love country music and pop music! Some of my favorites are Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, and I am starting to become a big fan of Maren Morris! Some of my other favorites are Justin Timberlake, One Republic, and Taylor Swift. Here recently I have started to become a fan of EDM! Who doesn’t love having jam sessions with the windows rolled down!?
My blog will mainly contain recipes that I make, different fashion styles, beauty guides, and lifestyle things! These are all of my favorite things so hopefully if your reading this you like to hear about a variety of things! 🙂
I hope that every person that reads my blog enjoys reading it as much as I do writing it! It is such a fun hobby to me and I hope to do it for a long time! I hope to inspire and be helpful in some type of way to every person that reads it as well. I love to meet new friends and I am always open to talk to people or give advice, so never feel afraid to reach out to me! 🙂 If I don’t know you, my goal is to be personal through each one of my posts where you feel like you could know me!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I hope to hear from you soon!
