Welcome to Mad Cherry! This blog started as an extension of my perpetually on-hiatus online clothing store. (Read about my decision to say hello to blogging instead of trying to make the business stay afloat here. If you don't want to switch tabs, read on.)
I've always loved writing. Writing means more to me than anything in the world. Maybe not more than my husband and 3-year-old daughter, but writing comes a close second.
I've also always had a penchant for anything beauty- and fashion-related. This is how I try to marry those interests.
What can you expect from this blog?
My vision is for this space to be the go-to for any woman (or man) who wants honest, informative, and entertaining content about beauty and fashion.
The blog is sectioned into two main categories. Under the beauty section, you'll find series, news, reviews, and features. The same goes for the fashion section.
Expect to read a lot about topics relating to the Philippines, because it's where I am based.
Why am I semi-anonymous?
It's because I want this blog's content to take center stage.
Why did I choose the name Mad Cherry?
One day my husband and I were watching TV. The woman from the local channel which shows U.S. programs via satellite was talking about "match airing," meaning the shows would air here the same time it goes live in the states. Puzzled, my husband asked, "Babe, what's mad cherry?"
The misheard phrase became an inside joke (that you now know about). I decided to use it for my business because it had a ring to it. Plus, I liked the idea of being a mad cherry. To me, the phrase depicts a person with fiery passion.
It also reminds me of this quote:
“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road
Thank you for visiting this space! I hope you discover something worth your while.
