Hello there! I’m The OG!  You can call me Amber, because, well, that’s my name.

Here is a bit about me:

I am a thirty-something woman with my life mostly (eh, maybe halfway) put together. I’m a stepmom, a sister, a daughter, a cousin, an aunt, a partner, a friend, an individual and a Bonafide Broad. I’m from the Northwest, but I currently live with my guy, Mr. OG in Flagstaff, Arizona.

I have always loved blogging, and I follow quite a few lifestyle, beauty, and fashion blogs. I’ve noticed that many blogs are no different from fashion/beauty magazines. Everything seems very staged. I’m not slamming on that. After all, we all want inspiration, something to strive toward.

But I want to see a blog that talks about real life. Let’s see more than just a highlight reel of the good stuff. I want it all! The pretty AND the ugly. The organized AND the messy. Because that’s what makes it real life.

You know what they say. Sometimes, you’ve just got to do it yourself. That is how The Bonafide Broad was born.

I hope that women out there will find my imperfections endearing (or at least not unbearable). I hope to provide women with a resource they can relate to, that helps them feel empowered, and less inadequate.

So…that’s about it. Cheers bitches!
