I’m Cassie, the owner and operator of The Brunette With a Blog! 

I should warn you beforehand, that I’m not like regular beauty bloggers or lifestyle bloggers.. I’m KIIIIND of a mix of both + a huge nerd + obsessed with my cat + boyfriend (and don’t even get me STARTED on the two of them together) + sports fan!

I really don’t like to consider myself one or the other, really. 

AND I don’t think I fall into either of these categories either. I must say. I think it’s safe to say, that 

I’m kind of my own species of blogger.

I take silly selfies and try not to take myself too seriously. I’ll also be the first to admit that while I look put together, I’m just a plain ol’ hot mess. I often find myself writing vague essays about my life + lessons I’ve learned throughout the years. So please, while you may decide to take my advice, remember I’m no expert! 

As much of a public blog as this is, it’s also a personal diary.. sooo.. basically what I’m trying to say is that here’s the place to come if you wanna read my rambling’s about all of the random things I love.

More about me…

I’m a super simple #girlboss who’s following her dreams + doing what she LOVES, all while running a blog + business + brand, and making sure my boy + my kitty are fed and cuddled by the end of the day. 

I’m a hopeless-romantic who wears her heart on her sleeve and isn’t afraid to show her true feelings.

The two things I want in life are: happiness + love ….. + to one day have a novel published. I’ve dreamt of being a writer ever since I was a little girl — and I KNOW everybody says that, but it’s true. I was making up little fantasies back in first grade.. I’ll save that story for another time. 


That’s pretty much me in a nutshell, and that’s pretty much what you’re gonna get on this blog. I sure do hope you stick around and enjoy the hilarity that ensues throughout my life.
