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 delicious food and a chic, organized living space but struggle to find the time for it all?  I discuss ways to combine organization and decor and share delicious, easy recipes that you won’t want to miss!


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 then went on to obtain a Master of Science Degree in Teaching, and I started out my career teaching 4th grade.  After 3 years in 4th grade, I moved to a different school and taught 5th grade for another 3 years.  During that third year, 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.  The past couple of years at home, I have fine-tuned my cooking and decorating skills and revamped my wardrobe and beauty routine, and I want to share my ideas with you!

Follow my blog for thrice-weekly posts on what’s up regarding the above topics!  Thanks for stopping by.

      1. Sure I’ll subscribe and we’ll keep in touch definitely
        Thanks for participating
        Who are you self hosted with ? Were you able to migrate your old posts to your new blog ?


      2. I am severely delayed in seeing my notifications. They no longer “notify” me, so I think there is nothing, but then when I go to my computer, I see things. It’s confusing. Anyway, I believe I migrated my followers with Jetpack but I am not positive yet. I am on WordPress.org and hosted with Bluehost. I love that I could design everything. It was so fun! I just hope I can keep the traffic. Do you see my Q&A post or Battle of the Drugstore Crayons in the Reader? I am hoping my posts will be visible… Thank you!!!
