What’s In A Name / Current Favorites


What’s In A Name?

Everyone knows Aurora Blake, first original clique blogger, but no one knows how I became Aurora Blake.

For as long as I can remember, I loved the name Aurora and nickname Rory. Once I rediscovered blogging, they just clicked together. I thought of many other names ( Sierra, Hathor, and Victoria were my top three favorites ), but Aurora was always first and foremost. As for the surname Blake, I’ve always loved guys first names as girls last names, and Blake was really the only one that fit for me.

After I had the name, I needed a URL. I thought of a few address’ like aurorablakexo, just plain aurorablake, theaurorablake, but I liked Official Aurora Blake the best- sounded more proper and well, official.

There isn’t too much I can say about my URL, it didn’t take too much time deciding, there isn’t a large backstory.

My Current Favorites:

Movies: Pitch Perfect; Warm Bodies; Beautiful Creatures

Books: City of Bones; The Hobbit

Colors: Mint; White; Coral Pink

Apps: Wanelo; 4 Words 1 Pic; Snapchat

Hairstyles: Medium-wand curls; Waterfall braid;  Messy bun

TV Shows: The Vampire Diaries; The Carrie Diaries; The Walking Dead

Music: Drop In The Ocean; a Thousand Years; The Class A-Team

Stores: dELiA’S, Bloomingdale’s, TopShop

I know this post was short, but I have a consolation prize? Anyone who comment/likes will get a comment/like back 🙂
Also, this divider and signature are my new constants, please don’t use them!
