Hi everyone! Thanks for tuning in to our blog 😊 We’re Kareena and Soumya, two current second-year undergraduates at UCLA both pursuing a B.S. in Psychobiology.
Kareena is originally from Chicago, Illinois, and Soumya is from Orange County, California, and we both love going to school in Los Angeles! With both of us being busy pre-med students in college, we thought that starting a blog would be a great stress releaser and a fun way to express our thoughts with the community around us.
Having competed in pageants in high school, Kareena has always had an interest in health, beauty and fashion, and it’s been on her mind for some time now to further pursue these interests through some avenue. For Kareena, beauty consists of not only outer beauty, but also inner beauty, meaning taking care of your mental, emotional, and physical health as well. She’s hoping that through this blog not only can she share some of her tips but also to push herself to continue practicing healthy habits.
Even just a few years ago, Soumya would have never envisioned herself writing about beauty and fashion. While it was never a prevalent part of her life, she has developed a keen affinity to both through her college experience. Most importantly, she has learned the importance of fostering an atmosphere of positivity and mental-well being through stressful times both personally, academically, and socially. As a collaborator on this blog, she hopes to not only share her perspective on the duality of inner and outer beauty, but also to utilize this space as a creative outlet.
The mission of our blog, Beauty Binge, is to serve as a nexus of health, wellness, and beauty. Although our blog is called Beauty Binge, we both strongly believe in expanding the conversation beyond outer beauty. We hope to cover topics ranging from mental health, positivity, skincare, nutrition, fashion, and much more! While we’re well aware of the many beauty and fashion blogs on the internet, we believe we have a unique voice to add to the conversation. Often, beauty can be misinterpreted as just a superficial component to one’s self; however, seeing strong and successful women around us who also value health, wellness, and beauty has served as an inspiration for us in our personal lives and also in creating this blog.
