Tell us a little about yourself. I have been blogging about beauty and style for the last five years. I am a lover of all things creative and this is one of my favorite outlets. Blogging has provided me with opportunities I would have never thought possible. I have attended New York Fashion Week several times, appeared in commercials, quoted in several magazines including Vogue, Allure & Cosmopolitan and traveled to areas of the US I had never before visited. On a personal note I am married with three children and enjoy living life to its fullest. I am 100% devoted to my family and consider them my greatest blessing and accomplishment.
We love the beauty tutorials on your blog. What’s your favorite part about styling hair and makeup? When it comes to styling I love the fact that anything goes. There are no ‘rules’ when it comes to hair and makeup. I encourage women to do what makes them feel beautiful, as minimal or extreme as that is. I am constantly on the search for new ideas to share and want to bring women the latest in styles and trends.
How did you get into blogging about fashion? Blogging about fashion was a natural transition from blogging about beauty. I feel the two go hand in hand and it was an additional way i could share my creativity. I am only 5’1” and dressing such a small frame can be a challenge. I like to share tips and ideas on how to dress the best for your body type.
How would you describe your signature style? I would describe my signature style in two words, effortless chic. As a mother I need a wardrobe that allows for movement and running around but I also like to look my best. I look for items that aren’t fussy and allow me to get ready in a snap.
Where do you get style inspiration? I get style inspiration from several sources. Movies, television, magazines and of course, other bloggers! Style and trends are constantly evolving and I like that I can go from boho one day to uptown the next.
What's your go-to outfit for summer? My go-to summer outfit includes any flowy tops or dresses with a hat. I like the coolness and breeziness from flowy clothing and the hat provides my face, body and hair with sun protection while allowing me to be stylish at the same time. A win/win!
