Perfect for diving into 2010

It took me a long time to decide on the name for this blog. I was going with "Style and Think" for a while, but it seemed too impersonal. "The Philosophical Stylist" and variations seemed too stuffy, not to mention pretentious!

Finally, I decided to stick with "Kalonity," a name that has served me well for years on the internet. I came up with the term back in the beginning of high school, when I used to be super into looking up word etymologies (haha I was a nerd but it's not like anything's changed), and discovered that "kalon" was an obscure term meaning "inner beauty."

Ever since, I have stood by that principle. Every year, I am beginning to understand it more and more. The old sayings are completely true- what is gorgeous on the outside needs to be sustained by the inside!

So consider this my cheesy obligatory introduction post, and welcome to the blog. I can't promise yet what the content will bring, but rest assured there will be plenty of aesthetics and philosophy. Open entirely to an unpredictable evolution, of course.

Love,
Tee
