Hi! I’m Chelsea, an Oakland-based beauty and lifestyle blogger. Having dreamt about the West Coast the majority of my life, I relocated here 3 years ago with ambition and whatever I could pack up into my car. I live with my boyfriend of 8 years & our dog, and love Harry Potter a little too much. I graduated with a degree in Fashion Merchandising, and to be honest- still don’t completely know what my “career” will be 5 years from now. What I do know is, I’m a creative, hence the start of Buffalo By Bay. I love to absorb, aesthetics, artistic expression and answering questions -with my opinions of course. I created Buffalo By Bay as an outlet for this creative side of me, and as a voice for all of the people who are constantly asking me for tips! Think food, beauty hacks, experiences around California.
What is Buffalo By Bay?
I strive to be a best friend to my readers. Relateable, honest and transparent for all the content I create. How did I get through college and working full time? How did I move across the country without a job? Is that new makeup sponge really as amazing at it seems? It’s hard to get the truth about real nitty-gritty questions here in the saturated blogosphere, and I’m proud of the connection I have with my followers and the trust I am building. Buffalo By Bay is fairly new, it’s been an idea I’ve had for years, but just launched in January of 2017. It’s still a work in progress, daily I’m learning the back-end and business side of blogging (which I will happily answer any questions about!) and creating a brand I am proud of as my own. I want girls to know it is possible to relocate from your small town, to switch jobs until you’ve found your passion, to express your opinions without fear of judgement.
Want to connect?
Building bonds and relationships with other bloggers, creative entrepreneurs and women in business has been one of the most rewarding things about this experience so far. I love to collaborate, to brainstorm and talk about the process with anyone who will listen. I am excited for what the future of Buffalo By Bay holds, and look forward to future partnerships and friendships with bloggers and businesses alike.
