Welcome to my blog! This site will be dedicated to all things I love. Beauty, Mindset, Fashion, and FOOD!!! Before that, here is a bit about myself. I was born in the Bronx, raised in Staten Island, and work full-time in the big city (Manhattan). I come from an Italian background so my body composition is approximately 50% pasta, 30% cheese, 20% wine. And yes, Sunday dinner is always entertaining an easy 20 people.
My lifetime dream was always to get into entertainment, fashion, or the beauty industry. When I graduated college I tried to get interviews at VH1, MTV, Nickelodeon but it was next to impossible (and I had an in). Considering I have the voice of a screaming goat and little to no acting skills, entertainment industry was kind of out of the question. Truth is, I didn’t mind so much. It was an industry everyone wanted to be in so you get hired making little to no money and working around the clock. With my expensive taste at such a young age, that was never going to cut it for me. As luck would have it, I landed a job in a growing information technology company right after I graduated college. At first, it was just temporary till I found something else I wanted to do. I worked hard, was adaptable to change and grew with the company. 13 glorious years later, I am very fortunate to say, I am still with the same company. During my employment, I quickly moved from job to job and have had amazing success in my field. I love my job, I love the people I work with, and recently I officially became a “home employee”. As you may know, life in corporate America isn’t always rainbows and butterflies which is why I started a side business about 4 years ago.
At that time, I was working 12 hour days on top of a 3 hour commute. I was recently engaged, and saving for a wedding and home with my then fiancé, Joe. In the midst of this, my father had just lost his 4 year battle with Cancer. To make matters even worse, my sister-in-law suddenly passed 6 short weeks later. Life was seriously starting to wear me down and it was starting to effect the people around me. I needed something. Something solely and completely for myself. Something positive I could focus on that was just for ME. That is when I came across a business opportunity that totally intrigued me and I jumped right in. 4 Years later, I am top 3% of the company and continuing to grow my business alongside my full-time career, while being an amazing wife (obvi) to my husband, and loving fur mom to my gorgeous pups.
Though I do have a full plate, I certainly have always had a passion for fashion and I am finally ready to share my love with you. I have zero background in any of these topics. I just want to share my experiences, options, and love for all things shoes, clothes, and accessories!! I have read Vogue for as long as I can remember and check my favorite fashion bloggers pages DAILY! I am super excited to share some of my favorite looks and most importantly hear from YOU! I am a first time blogger so feedback is more than welcome!
