What motivated you to start your blog?
One day I clicked a link on facebook to a blog and in a moment where I felt alone, I felt heartbroken, angry…..I read that and suddenly felt like someone out in the world possibly understood. On the other side of the US someone that I had never met me totally was “meeting me where I was at” hundreds of miles away through a computer screen. In January of that year I started writing. I started talking about mama stuff, some heartache, struggles, csection scars, NICUs, my miscarriage….the list goes on. I also like to see the beauty in the everyday, share stories about my babies and what we wear as well as fun recipes. It’s my little space on the internet. I love it.
How does the city you live in inspire your day-to-day fashion?
I am actually not sure if where I live inspires it all that much! I find a lot of inspiration from blogs and pinterest!
Who are your style icons?
Sienna Miller. She’s fabulous!
Name one piece every woman should have in her closet and why?
A good pair of jeans! They can be dressed up or dressed down! Plus as a mama of three, I am in jeans a lot.
What items do you always carry in your handbag?
Lipgloss, my glasses/ sunglasses, diapers, my wallet and a few bobby pins!
What is the best beauty trick you’ve ever learned?
Dry shampoo and clip in hair extensions- AMAZING!
Tell us… what is something not many people know about you?
I have an easy time opening up on the internet through writing but in my “real life” tend to be really guarded.
What are your favorite prints or colors to mix? Do you have any tips?
I LOVE white mixed with fun bright accessories. It’s like a simple white tee and jeans can be completely dressed up with a great bag, a cute necklace and a hat or headband.
When you need a little pick-me-up, how do you add sparkle to your life and feel good?
Oh so many little things can go such a long way! Fresh flowers, an afternoon walk, a dance party with my babies…. the littlest things can add a ton of sparkle to a day!
How do you start your day? Do you have a morning routine?
I am a mama to three little ones under the age of four. So it’s normally different and wild every morning!
