Mom of two girls and wife to my high school sweetheart, I share fun family anecdotes to remember every detail I can about this motherhood journey.
The Story of me
When I was a little girl, playing dress up was what I looked forward to every single day. To feel beautiful, fancy, put together, and express who I am or want to be through what I was wearing gave me a sense of freedom and artful expression, even at a young age. My mother can tell you I have surely gone through phases, but little did I know at the time that it was expressing myself as an individual and being a trendsetter. When I would play dress up (Pretty Pretty Princess was my jam starting from at least 4 years old) I would get a little bossy with my friends because I felt I wanted to extend my fashion wisdom. I wanted to style them too! I just love how an outfit can come together and how it can make you feel so beautiful even when you are feeling your worst.
Be Your Own Self Portrait
As I got older, I would get more and more attention around my choice of wardrobe or outfits. Compliments and criticisms never stopped me being who I am. For me, choosing an outfit feels like painting a picture of yourself. Each brush stroke equals a styled feature like earrings, shoes, how I’ll wear my hair today. All of these decisions add up to one portrait of me, and if I can inspire anyone out there through my blog to dress a certain way my advice will always be to not forget your individuality. You can be a trendsetter, trend follower, “basic,” or whatever way you want to put it, as long as you don’t stop being true to yourself and your own self portrait.
I later developed an eye for interior design, and furniture DIY design as I got older and had my own homes to furnish and little to no money to do it. I began finding great pieces at thrift shops and redesigning for my taste to fill my home. It has truly grown to be a huge passion of mine and I love sharing my DIY wisdom with others! My hope is for my posts to blossom into joy, confidence, creativity, and inspiration for someone out there and I want to thank you for being here!
