Up, Up, and Away We Go!


We here at Quirky & Co. are still undergoing some, er, technical (and design) difficulties, but due to my extreme eagerness to start blogging, we'll just pretend there's an "Under Construction. Hard Hats Required." sign hovering over us, not that I want you, dear reader, to have to cope with hat hair. Now comes the part where I make an attempt at a formal introduction that will hopefully convince you to become a faithful reader of my blog forever (fingers crossed). Ok, here it goes,ahem: Quirky & Co. is quite simply the musings of my curious adolescent mind on style, beauty, food, pop culture, and just about everything in between. I'm always plagued by ideas and opinions in my daily life on all sorts of things and thought "Hey, maybe somebody will get a kick out of this." So, I give to you Quirky & Co.
About the Title: After hours of brainstorming and bugging (and screaming at) everyone around me for the perfect title for my blog, I came up with nothing. As I was later digging around in my desk drawer, I came up with a drawing from when I was about 9 or 10. I had drawn a shop (quite well, I might add) where it appears technicolored wigs, British flag jumpers, and bananas of all things were sold. The title on the storefront reads "Quirky & Co." What's a more appropriate name for a blog written by quirky kind of gal on a smorgasbord of topics? Alright, so, up, up, and away we go!
P.S. Doesn't the picture above remind you of the film The Red Balloon?
P.S.S. Those feet in the picture on the header are indeed mine, in case you were wondering.
P.S.S.S. I could go on for hours, but I'll spare you.

I love your header picture, it's too cute. And your blog looks good so far even if its "under construction"
