I’ve always been hesitant to call this space a “lifestyle blog”. It seemed a little bit daunting & overwhelming….placing this little outlet of mine in the same category of so many powerhouse blogs & brands. And to be honest, I never really believed that I had a place in the lifestyle realm; a 5′ 5″, size 6 (on a good day) with very little knowledge of fashion & decor is a tough sell against the leggy blondes with waist length hair who look more put together in the school drop-off line than I do on a night out. Plus, I don’t have one of those Gucci belts that seems to be the most recent
lifestyle blogger badge of honor. 🙂

I’m really not making fun; I live for following those women and I get so many ideas for my wardrobe, skincare routine and holiday decor from each of them. They are true influencers. But, sometimes, I feel SO disconnected from the lifestyle they sell.

Which got me thinking…wouldn’t it be fun to cultivate a “relatable” lifestyle blog; a space with ideas, tips & tricks but also lots and lots of real life. I want this space to be as simple & fun as my favorite skincare products of the month, yummy recipes and the most recent hobby I have taken up to get myself through this pregnancy but I also want to be vulnerable and transparent and share posts like the Letter to my Daughter I shared last week. And most of all, I just want to create content that makes other women (and eve men, you’re invited!) say “YES. Me too!” and “Glad I’m not the only one!”

So, I promise to be consistent in posting and always try to remain relatable if you promise to check in often and share with your friends?! Yes? Perfect!

This will be fun, let’s do this. 🙂
