Saturday Takeover- Hel On Heels

Introducing Helen from Hel On Heels.


What made you decide to start blogging?

I had a blog in college, but I didn't keep up with it--posted once every few months and never really knew what blogging was about. I started again after I was asked to come speak to college seniors about finding a job and what to expect when you have one. I wrote a post to accompany my talk, remembered how much I liked blogging and decided to start again. I’m new to the professional world, living on my own for the first time, and taking life one day at a time. I blog about the things I figure out along the way.

How is life in Atlanta?

It's wonderful! I lived in the Atlanta area growing up, but I went to college in a teeny-tiny little town. Seriously, it is miniature. BONUS: Honey Boo Boo lives there and photobombed my senior pictures. Needless to say, after four years of small town life, I couldn't wait to get back to the hustle and bustle. Atlanta is such a fun city and we have great restaurants. There is always something exciting going on here. I even saw Ben Affleck filming a movie at the laundromat near my house the other day. I wasn't actually at the laundromat since I have a washer/dryer in my apartment...but when I heard he was filming, I decided to make a detour.


What is your favorite thing about working for a non-profit?

I wear so many different hats working at a non-profit, which is a great way to gain experiences in a lot of different areas quickly. Plus, I work with kids, so that's always entertaining. I get a lot of laughs from the hilarious things they say.

How would you describe your blog in three words?

Food, Fashion, Fitness, and Finesse. Ok, I cheated and used four, but those are the words I use to describe my blog to other people. Finesse is anything that doesn't fit into the first three categories, but I liked the alliteration.

What is a favorite post you've written recently? I think my favorite post I've written recently is "Having a Hard Last Name." My last name is really complicated to pronounce and actually means "little yellow weed." I wrote this post exploring the pros and cons of having a difficult last name.
