It's Good To Be A Girl (Part 1)

Julie Leah // It's Good To Be A Girl (Vera Bradley Campaign)

I'm excited to be kicking off a three-part series celebrating all the reasons that it's good to be a girl. This is the latest campaign launched by Vera Bradley, and I think it's brilliant. Now, I will be the first to admit (and you already know this to be true if you've been following a while), I am all about "I am woman, hear me roar," but sometimes it's nice to just delight in the things that are good about being a female. My approach is basically, #ItsGoodToBeAGirl because I can do whatever I want - am I right?! Over the next few weeks, I'm going to be outlining lots of things that I personally love about being a girl, and I hope that you'll chime in and tell me what you're thinking too! You can join the conversation by sharing your reasons on social media using the hashtag #ItsGoodToBeAGirl and tagging Vera Bradley!


one. For me, a great outfit (or just a great bag!) can instantly change my mood and make my day amazing. If I feel good in what I'm wearing, my day is 100 times more productive! Simple, but true!

two. You can wake up one morning and decide that you're gonna pierce your nose. Which is exactly what I did last week!

three. You're always on the search for the perfect spot to take blog photos. Scouting out fun locations is one of my favorite things about blogging. Sometimes I think I drive my dad crazy, but it's such good quality time together!

four. Since I'm an only child, I love getting to play "auntie" to the cutest, cuddliest bunch of best friends' babies ever. Really, I just want to kiss all their cheeks.

I absolutely love your blog. I just want to know, where do you take the majority of your pictures? I know you took some at the Appalachian Fair, but as far as the rest of them, are they around Appalachia or where?

I just think it's awesome that you are a hometown girl with a blog.

Hi, Cathy! I take my pictures anywhere and everywhere! These were taken at the Arts Depot in Abingdon. Yes, I take them mostly around Appalachia - usually Abingdon and Bristol. If I ever post any from trips I'll mention in the post where I was.

You're so sweet! I'm so glad you enjoy my blog!

xo, Julie
