My name is not Carrie….so who is she?

My name is not Carrie never has been never will be. So why is my blog named after a closet belonging to her?
It has caused some confusion to potential collaborators and possibly some readers who call me Carrie in correspondence, so I thought I would set the record straight.
 
Back in 2010 when I set up my twitter for the first time, I tried to think of a cute name rather than just my real one. I love Sex and the City and so decided on a related name. My first thought was ‘carriesshoes’ but I decided that there was too many S’s. And then I got to thinking (see what I did there?! classic Carrie line!) what is something which is associated with Carrie aside from her shoes? Her closet! (Wardrobe for us Brits but it does not have the same ring to it). And there ‘carriescloset’ was born.

So fast forward a few years and I start writing my blog and I make the decision to call it the same as my twitter which will make it easy to connect. I also like the fact that I am relatively anonymous on here and over the months whilst honing my blogging skills and carving out my niche, I started posting less private things about myself and over on instagram I rarely take selfies or photos that include my whole face. There are a few reasons for this but largely I like to blog about what I like rather than my personal life and that’s the way I want it. Everyone is different. 

I have always dreamed of having a large enough place where I can make a small room into a walk in wardrobe and dressing room. The closet that Carrie almost gets in the first Sex and the City film is just gorgeous and the closet below is the one she gets in the second film. To die for.

So there you have it – hopefully that has made things a little clearer. I don’t really mind what you call me Carrie or my real name which is Angela. Just as long as you like what I do and keep reading!
