First, I want to thank you all for stopping by to check this out; it truly means a lot to me. This has been in the works for what seems like ever, but after much thought, sweat and occasional tears, I have finally created what I feel is a solid foundation for my blog.
That being said, I’d like to let you know a little bit about me, and also some thing that you will and will NOT find here.
What you WILL find:
-relatable fashion and beauty tips
-lessons I’ve learned from my journey through motherhood and real life
-occasional ramblings related to fashion, beauty and motherhood
-pretty photos + pretty things in general (because I tend to be on the girly side)
-positivity, encouragement and relevance for women.. particularly millennial moms
What you will NOT find:
-exclusively designer fashion
-negativity of any kind
-perfectionism of any sort
-political, religious or other hot button issues
-how to live a Pinterest-worthy life (although the recovering perfectionist in me would love that)
Now that that’s out of the way, here’s a little bit of background on me 🙂 I’m Natalie, and I’m a twenty-something Romanian-American currently living in the PNW. I’m married to an absolutely wonderful man, and we have a 19 month old son who I’ll refer to as A. We are also expecting baby #2 in January 2018. Needless to say, I’ll have my hands even fuller than they currently are! I’m slightly terrified, but mostly excited. My background is in fashion marketing and merchandising, but I’m currently a stay-at-home mom. Prior to becoming domesticated (ha), I graduated with a Bachelor degree in Fashion Marketing and went on to work at a very well known global outerwear and sportswear company. I always thought I wanted the corporate life, but then my Aquarius spirit- and pregnancy- happened. I’m an entrepreneur + free spirit at heart, and there just wasn’t room for those traits in that environment. And leaving my 5 month old for 12 hours per day, 5 days per week, was freaking HARD. At the time, it just so happened that all of our childcare options basically fell through, forcing my husband and I to re-evaluate what made the most sense for our family.
I’m so very blessed to be able to stay home and raise our son- something I never thought I wanted- and this blog provides me with a creative outlet that changing diapers, tackling mounds of laundry and attacking grocery shopping with a rowdy toddler don’t 😉
Whew! So there’s the gist of it. I really hope you’ll stick around and make yourself comfy, because I truly enjoy good conversations and meeting new people. And I would love to get to know you, too!
Xo until next time,
