Hi friends! I’m so glad you’re here and I’m excited to share a little bit more about my life behind the Instagram account. I am a thirty three year old Mom and wife. I have an eight year old daughter, Sophie, and have been married to my best friend, Andy, almost ten years. We have two four legged babies, Laney and Louis, who like to make appearances on IG Stories from time to time!
I am originally from Cincinnati and currently live in a small town in Indiana. Adjusting to life in a small town wasn’t easy at first (I mean, the Mall is almost an hour away…!) but the people I’ve met along this journey are some of my all-time favorites. I love it here and couldn’t imagine raising Sophie anywhere else. Some of my hobbies outside of blogging include traveling, fitness, and everything Essential Oils. I also LOVE a good book and am currently reading, ‘Girl Stop Apologizing’ by Rachel Hollis (I got an advanced copy btw, eeek!). On the list of things I hold dear to my heart my relationship with God is #1. Proverbs 3:5-6
This blog began as a way for me to share my style and inspire others to use fashion in a way that works for them while making them feel great. I love sharing a good sale as well as hair and makeup tips that will work for your everyday life! All opinions are my own and I will only post content that I truly believe is beneficial for my followers. Again I am so glad you are here with me and I’m answering some of your most asked questions below!
How did you meet your husband? As cliche as it sounds – in a bar. In our defense it was actually a restaurant too! I didn’t even want to be there that evening but somehow our two groups of friends ended up hanging out all night so I decided to stay for a bit. Andy had just moved back from SC and convinced me that we should exchange numbers because he didn’t know many people… yeah, basically the only true part was he had just moved back haha. He knew everyone haha! He still maintains the fact that little white lies can be necessary in certain situations and well, I guess it turned out for the best!
What are three products you can’t live without? Dry Shampoo, mascara, and coffee!
Where is your favorite travel destination? Hands down, Bermuda! Andy and I both agree we will be going back, it was amazing!
How do you stay so fit? Out of high school I spent two years studying Anatomy and Physiology and worked for a short time as a fitness coach at a women’s gym. I am fascinated with how the body works and learned a lot about nutrition. I’ve taken what I’ve learned throughout the years and apply what I can to my everyday life. I think you have to find a healthy balance for your own lifestyle to make it work for you.
How did you start blogging? At first it was just a hobby. I would often get stopped out in public with women wanting details ab my outfits, even hair and makeup. At that time I followed style bloggers on Instagram and thought it looked like fun! I had no idea what all was involved but decided to start an Instagram account just for style inspiration. My photos weren’t even shopable then, but as the following grew I had to get that figured out… and the rest is history really!
