Hi! I’m Stacey Kay. The creator/owner/author of this blog.
Born and raised in the Greater Binghamton area, I couldn’t wait to graduate high school and get the heck out of here! I tried going as far away as I could (California), but my parents said they wouldn’t help me move out there. So I took my second choice — Ohio.
I know, I know. Ohio is a far cry from California, but I inadvertently fell in love with Kent State University, and since they had a top three fashion program, I decided to attend college there. I took advantage of every opportunity that was offered there, and ended up studying abroad in Europe and Hong Kong, as well as doing a stint in New York City for my fashion internship.
After graduating college, I settled in the Cleveland area for about two years – working in marketing and store management as well as building my own fashion social media brand – “Goodwill Huntingg”. I absolutely loved the blogging community there and have met a lot of wonderful people through social media.
In 2012, I moved back to my hometown of Binghamton, NY. Hence the name “The Binghamton Blog”. I wanted to use this blog as a way to promote local places, people, restaurants, and events. I started exercising and eating healthily, and fell in love with cooking & creating recipes. I also took up running and participated in a few races around town.
Fast forward to 2014: I’ve just accepted a position in the fashion industry in Houston, TX and will be moving there to start my new life! I’m going to be sharing bits of my adventure on here so that my friends & family back home can stay connected.
This is my journey.
