How-To-Wear-A-Pleated-Skirt

Welcome to The Blue Eyed Dove!

In a nutshell around here we focus on the fun things in life like style, fashion, planning parties, home decor and everything pretty. Now onto a few fun facts about me and the blog!

Why I blog…

I studied journalism at Indiana University, but decided to pursue a different career path that steered me away from writing and journalism in general. After a few years in the workforce I started to really miss writing and wanted another outlet that allowed me to be more creative. At the time I was also a huge fan of blogs myself and it just made sense to finally move in that direction and start a blog of my very own.

 

How I chose my blog name…

This conversation is much more fun to have in person, so please bare with my sarcasm 😉 My last name is Dove, and I have blue eyes…get it? See much more fun to have in person. When choosing the name of my blog I came up with lots of different options. Then one day while I was getting ready I went to put on one of my favorite vintage necklaces {a silver dove with a blue rhinestone as the eye} and the name stuck. Not rocket science, but it was my first blogging “aha” moment.

 

Where I live…

I am a born and raised Hoosier and currently reside in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I grew up in what I’d consider the suburbs of Fort Wayne and can’t imagine living anywhere else.

 

A few of my fave things…

Chai tea lattes {usually iced}, accessories, themed-parties, bright colors, chips and salsa {with margaritas!}, mornings, Bravo TV, gummy bears, dalmatian print {and the actual dogs}, singing in the car, cake and my family

 

My go-to Pandora stations…

Footloose, Boyz II Men, Nelly, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson and Grease

 

My fave holiday…

I love them all 😉

 

Things I know more about than any girl really should…

IU Basketball players and the program’s history, the Real Housewives franchises, and contestants from current and previous Bachelor/Bachelorette seasons

 

Thank you so much for stopping by. I’m thrilled you are here!
