So, The Glitter Vixen. For years, I ran a blog called Hanging in the Blossom Tree. It had been my email address for years and the song I took these lyrics from is still one I listen today. However, towards the end of last year I started feeling like I'd outgrown that name. I wasn't an angsty teenage girl anymore so the song just didn't fit me anymore. One day, I was running on my cross trainer (note to self: start using cross trainer again) and the word "vixen" popped into my head and from that moment on, I couldn't get it out of my head. I realised that I wanted to start over in the blogging world, and "vixen" was going to be in my blog name somewhere! I won't lie, part of it is because my boyfriend's surname is Foxx and he definitely sparked my little fox obsession I've got going on. But Supervixen by Garbage is a very special song to me, and well, let's all cringe together now, a Supervixen is something I aspire to be. When I think of vixens, I think of strong, sexy, powerful women and well, I wouldn't mind being strong, sexy and powerful.
So, that's how Vixen came about but what about the Glitter? For ages, I thought I had to have an alliterative blog name. Violet Vixen, Velvet Vixen - I tried these but they're associated with burlesque. What other words beginning with V did I know? Violent...er, nope. Vigorous...maybe not. Voluptuous Vixen? Absolutely not! Finally, I decided to ditch the obsession with alliteration and try other words. One thing I loved about my old blog which I've carried onto this blog is my glitter background. Since I learnt how to do it in Photoshop, I've been obsessed! Glitter is fantastic. It's sparkly, it's pretty and is definitely an appropriate word to have in the title of a Beauty Blog! So, The Glitter Vixen was born and I haven't look back since.
How did you blog name come about? (If you don't have a blog, what would you name it if you did have one?)
