Welcome to my little blog, where we dream big,
laugh lots, and wear high heels!
I wear a lot of hats - wife, mom, small business owner, blogger (not to mention cook, laundress, and housekeeper). My blog is about some of the things that make me smile:
- beauty (I'm addicted to beauty products)
- fashion (I also have a fashion addiction)
- product reviews (I love, love, love to try new products!)
- D-I-Y projects (both crafty & for the home)
- traveling (including reviews about places to stay, things to do, and places to eat)
- my family
I enjoy being an influencer and working with brands to help spread the word about awesome products.
Remember - life's more fun when you stop to enjoy the view!
Here are some things you might not know about me:
- have an 10 yr. old miniature Australian shepherd named Riley (AKA Nubby, Nubbybutt, & something I can't write here)
- have a 11 yr. old cat named Angus (AKA Goosey, Goosey Mon (in a Jamaican accent), and Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat)
- was raised in a teeny-tiny rural Appalachian town in Ohio
- moved to Kentucky 9 years ago, after living in Ohio for 45 years
- worked as a nurse for 19 years, but retired in 2001
- homeschooled Buddy & Lulu for 8 years
- never discuss religion or politics unless I've known you for a bazillion years
- margaritas & bourbon, but not necessarily together
- the beach
- the color pink
- manis & pedis
- The Walking Dead & Doctor Who
- Starbucks black iced tea lemonade (Trenta, with 3 Splendas please)
- spiders & snakes
- waiting in line
- that clothing designers and/or store buyers think that if you're petite and/or over 40, you must want to wear polyester, large prints, elastic-waist paints, and appliqued sweaters
- camping (when you grow up in rural Appalachia, your childhood is like a 15 year camping trip)
- cold weather
- people who don't do what they say they will
- spam (both email & the canned kind)
I hope you'll stick around and read a few things - and then come back to read more!
