The Girl Behind The Blog

Hey y'all! My name is Claire Austin Hooks. I go by Claire Austin (it's a double name, like Mary Elizabeth). I'm thankful for my mother's obsession with finding the most original, southern name for her baby girl, because I love my double name. I'm 18 years old and I'm an upcoming freshman at North Carolina State University majoring in industrial engineering. Go Pack! I've lived in the Raleigh area, NC my whole life. Blonde hair, blue eyes, complete shopaholic and fashionista. I have an out of control obsession with monograms - I monogram EVERYTHING. I would describe my style as preppy, southern, glam chic. My favorite color is and always will be pink! I created this blog because I hope to inspire other girls to be more fabulous, much as other blogs have done for me.  I love gathering all my thoughts and putting them out there for someone to read. It makes me feel witty and confident. I live my life by "keep calm and be fabulous" because I would rather be completely over-the-top than completely boring. No matter where I am or who I'm around, I know I will always stay true to my fabulous self. Xoxo
