About

Hey y'all! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

My name is Sydney, but everyone calls me Syd. I'm the blogger behind Anchored in the South (AITS) a primarily fashion & lifestyle blog. Where I cover topics like style, college, fitness, travel, beauty and just about everything under the moon or however that saying goes.

And well to quote Rory Gilmore, "I can't believe I'm in the blogosphere."

Founded in August of 2014, Anchored in the South was just a creative outlet for me. Or rather my own online personal diary that I thought nobody would take the time to read. I am so thankful to call this my hobby and I love all the friendships it has brought into my life.

Since you clicked on this 'About' page you probably won't to know a bit about me, only makes sense! I was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs but I've always been a southern girl at heart; hence where the blog name comes from.

I  attend college at Mississippi State University studying Communications with a concentration in Public Relations and a minor in Marketing. It's quite the mouthful.

My favorite brands/stores: J Crew Factory, Old Navy, LOFT, Sperry, Sanuk, Lilly Pulitzer, Bath & Body Works, Steve Madden, Target

My major four food groups include: pizza, chicken, ice cream & chocolate

A few of my favorite things: Arnold Palmers,  BBQ, running, photography, bookstores, cheesy Hallmark movies, stationery, country music, anything with stripes, football & baseball, rainy days, HGTV, cowboy boots & traveling

This is just a brief overview of who I am because I don't believe that a person can be defined by just a few paragraphs. But that's what my blog is for!

Whether I can make you smile, teach you something new, add some inspiration to your life, or be a hazard to your credit card. I hope to see y'all real soon!

"Be a girl with a mind, a woman with attitude, and a lady with class."

  2. HGTV is my favorite addiction! I'll also be senior in the fall and I totally agree. The future is terrifying but in an exciting way, especially applying and getting into college!
