Hello, my name is Dani and I am a style and makeup-a-holic. I love the way style and makeup make me feel as a woman and I truly believe these are key factors in supporting a woman's own self confidence. Since my early childhood memories of sitting in my mothers closet watching her put outfits together and playing dress up with her Ferragamo shoes, paired with my first Sephora experience at the age of 15 on the Champs-Elysees in Paris, I have been hooked.
I live in the Washington D.C. Metro Area (specifically Old Town Alexandria) with my husband, David and cats Peaches and Pinky. I created Blonde in the District in October 2014 after leaving a job that left me feeling broken and uninspired. I longed for creativity and I stumbled into blogging as my outlet, not knowing where it would take me. Since then, BITD has become my world, my inspirations, and my passions. My goal as a blogger is to share my personal life, style, beauty, and travel experiences with all of you, to encourage confidence of self and confidence to chase after your dreams. Because that is what BITD has done for me.
