I know “brutally honest reviews” have popped up a lot in the beauty community, but sometimes I feel like their “reviews”/”first impressions aren’t always so true, and that’s just the world of business.
I started this blog as “brutally bossard”, but I thought that was too harsh and my last name will change here soon. However, I wanted to incorporate this word: Brutal. By definition brutal means: punishingly hard or uncomfortable. direct and lacking any attempt to disguise unpleasantness. And that’s what this blog is about. Being direct and without any sugar coating. Which means, yes some of my opinions might be unpleasant or uncomfortable to talk about but this is my avenue to be as honest as I can.
So I needed a supporting word, to soften the blow. Which leads me to… Honest. This is a platform for me to lay it all out, open and honestly. Honest: free of deceit and untruthfulness; sincere. Whether it be talking about beauty products or family which sometimes is a touchy subject for people like me.
But what does the last B stand for??
I left the B blank, mainly because I couldn’t decide! I had so many options. I bounced between a bunch of ideas, that I figured, I‘ll keep it simple until I lock a B in. I refer to the blog as the BHB because I want to differentiate myself and it’s simple. Plus I think like a marketer, and I don’t want to take you down that rabbit hole.
My Options, So Far:
Brunette: I have attempted at being a blonde so many times, but I just am either super impatient, get overly bored with the process, or run out of money to be a blonde. So I am just going to accept the fact that I am, and always will be a brunette. But IDK that doesn’t really tell you anything about me?
Bitch: The second word that came to mind when creating the blog name, I have been called this countless of times and honestly, it’s just overused. Nexxttttttt.
Boss: You can either take this as a shortening of my last name, or a literal boss. But, I am not a boss nor do I strive to be the boss, I’d rather be a leader. And there is a big difference.
Bossard: Simple, my last name, and I really thought this was going to be it as that was what the blog was named previously, but as I stare at the foreign new friend I have on my finger I know this one isn’t going to last.
Beauty: This was a big contender for me, but just not there yet. I didn’t want to limit my blog, or myself for that matter to looks, or a perception of beauty. I love all things beauty products. I live for youtube reviews on new products and try hard not to go out and buy the newest stuff. But, I don’t want to portray myself as someone who is that of an expert in beauty, because I am not. Yes, I am so fascinated with it and I love spending hours doing my makeup, even if I have to take it off a few times to get that ~perfect~ look. Maybe one day I will call myself a “beauty guru” but nope, not there yet. Also this blog is so much more than just me talking about beauty.
Babe: Please keep reading…. I am embarrassed this even crossed my mind.
Butterfly: Solely for the fact that I was doodling ideas for a logo, and the one that stuck out to me happens to look like a butterfly. With the backwards B next to the H and B. But, I am not really a butterfly fanatic and it doesn’t tell anything about me. So eh.. I’ll keep thinking.
Blog: Again – I don’t want to limit this avenue of just a blog! Maybe one day, I’ll do podcasts (I’m obsessed with Podcasts) or a vlog (which would also be super cool) or even a book! (a life long dream) So for now she’s staying a B.
That’s it for now, see you next time!
