Oh, hello! I didn’t see you sitting there. I was just relaxing by the fireplace in my roomy Beverly Hills mansion, enjoying a Cuban cigar and sipping a nice glass of cognac, resplendent in my satin smoking jacket.
That is a lie, of course.
Hi, I’m Kelley, the newest member of The Impulsive Buy’s crew of reviewers. I’m actually wearing pajama pants, sitting in my apartment in Mesa, Arizona, a part of the greater Phoenix area commonly known as “The Valley of the Sun.” If you’re to believe crime television shows, it is the asshole of the United States, a terrifying desert filled with escaped convicts and deranged murderers. This is only partially true.
A short background about me: I lived in Anaheim, California for the first 22 years of my life. Yes, I worked at Disneyland. No, I wasn’t one of the princesses. Got a BFA in English with an emphasis on creative writing. Moved to Mesa, worked a couple of secretary jobs. The usual stuff.
I was practically raised on fast food and junk food, and my love of these unhealthy eats has never waned. As I grew older, I started to take notice of just how ridiculous the marketing of these foods are, and a few years ago, I started thinking about creating a blog that would highlight this insanity, and also introduce the Internet public to new and/or crazy food items. Last year, I finally created Junk Food Betty. TIB was a great inspiration for me.
Now I’m a reviewer for TIB, and I am enthusiastically grateful to be one. My style is pretty straightforward: I’m not a girly-girl, I cuss like a drunken sailor (unless my mother is in the room), I haven’t worn a dress since I graduated high school, and if I review a product that I think sucks, you’re going to know about it. Conversely, if I try a product and love it, I’ll make sure to tell you why I think it’s great. I look forward to channeling my verbosity into words and paragraphs that will entertain and possibly even educate you, the Impulsive Buy reader.
