Why hello there!

I’m Brielle, and I run the website Little Black Checkbook. I created this website in 2020 to document my journey as a millennial trying my best to practice slow living and minimalism in this increasingly fast-paced and materialistic world.

What’s the story behind the site name?

It’s my spin on the iconic “little black dress”. I want this website and everything I explore on it to be long-lasting, versatile, and widely accessible. I replaced the dress with a checkbook because personal finance is one of my major passions and something I talk a lot about on here.

What am I generally up to?

  1. I’m a Chartered Professional Accountant and Chartered Business Valuator. I spend a lot of my day in Excel and working with clients.
  2. I’m a certified yoga instructor and have my 250 RYT. You may see some photos of my practice on Instagram.
  3. On this website, I write blog posts about life, personal finance, and offer life advice that I’ve found helpful over the years. If you’re reading this and would like to suggest a topic, please send it to me and we can make this blog better together.
