10 outfits with the lularoe carly dress- army blouse

Are you super busy and active and struggle with looking stylish?  I’ve got you covered.  As a former teacher and now stay-at-home mom of young twins, I have nailed fashionable and functional style!  I don’t want to be in sweats all day, but I also don’t want to wear clothes that need constant readjusting.  Who has time for that?  Plus, I will show you that you can be a fashionista without breaking the bank.


I also love makeup.  I think it’s fun and interesting, but I don’t have all the time in the world for primping.  I know I am not alone in this!  I share simple makeup ideas that will make you look and feel like a queen, as well as review makeup and beauty products so you don’t have to put much thought into what you should purchase.  I also love to find high-performance drugstore makeup items that can be used in place of high end, designer products.

Want a chic, organized living space but struggle to find the time for it all?  I discuss ways to get organized and add elements of cozy and whimsy to your home.  I even mix in a few of my fave recipes here and there!

Why I Blog

I have loved makeup and fashion since my preteen years.  I knew I would someday express that love to the world!  Enter this blog.  But before creating it in February 2016, I completed my undergraduate studies with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a Minor in Music.  I had to do a lot of writing as a part of my studies, and I really learned to enjoy it.

I then went on to obtain a Master of Science Degree in Teaching, and I started out my career teaching 4th grade before moving up to 5th.

During my 6th year of teaching, I discovered I was expecting twins!  My husband and I decided that on many levels, it was best that I stay home and raise the girls, especially during their younger years.

 After the girls’ 2nd birthday, I realized I was really ready for some adult interaction and that I needed to stimulate my mind and expend my creative energies.  Blogging is the perfect outlet for that and allows me to continue writing, which is something I love.

I really want to share my realistic ideas with the busy woman…the everyday girl!  Subscribe to my blog for 1-2 posts per week on what’s up regarding how to be stylish, functional, chic, and smart as an everyday girl.
