Happy Monday cuties! I sat down with Galore Mag for a fun Q&A interview. From how I got started in blogging to beauty secrets and upcoming projects… Check it out!

So you got your start as a blogger. What were you first blogging about?

I saw my blog as a lifestyle online magazine. I would share things that inspired me, like what was going on with the runways and how to get the look for less. I’m all about chasing style on a budget. Then I noticed people wanted to see me more involved, so I started doing tutorials, and …

Do you remember when you were a little kid and your mom would pack up the mini van and head to the mall for the yearly back-to-school-shopping trip? Man I miss those days! I feel like I’m coming up on those days again but in a whole new way…so crazy! (disclaimer: I am not pregnant lol)

This outfit brings back nostalgia because I got the look from JCPenney! That seriously used to be my favorite department store growing up. Even though times and styles have changed, the one thing that hasn’t changed is the affordability. And I’ll forever be a …

Thank you all for the sweet birthday wishes yesterday! I had the most relaxing day ever. I’m in Texas visiting family for a few more days and thought I would share a fun little birthday post. I came up with 27 things I’ve learned about myself over the years. Don’t judge me for #20.

1. Honesty is the best policy – I used to think telling a little white lie here and there was okay, but the older I’m getting the more I’ve learned that honesty is the best policy. I kept Steve a secret from my parents for years …

One question you guys often ask (especially lately!) is when Stevie and I will have kids. By the looks of this photo it must be time, right? Not so fast….

Girl Talk (Boys skip this part): When we were in New York last week something felt different. I noticed I was a few days late – but that’s normal when I travel. What I couldn’t understand was why I started spotting. That never happens to me. I somehow convinced myself I was pregnant and told Steve the news. Stevie looked at me like God knows how many times when I’ve …

Today I’m going to share some tips for maintaining a positive attitude in the workplace. I know it can be tough (especially if you’re under a lot of pressure) but keeping the workplace vibe upbeat and positive can make a huge difference in the success of your business, and your life.

As you guys know, I started this blog on my own. I was the only employee for several years before Steve came on as my partner. At first, it was hard letting go of certain responsibilities when I was used to doing it all myself. Not to mention, working …

You read the title right. Several months ago, I got an email from a man named Jordan. He told me that his wifey-to-be (Rachel) was a HUGE supporter of mine. He then went on to personally invite Stevie and I to their August 2016 wedding in Canada. Never in a million years did he think we would even see the email! My first reaction was, “OMG. This is so sweet!” My second thought was, “Why do I have this strong feeling in my heart that I need to be there?” It took us just a few minutes after reading it …

We’re living in a world where it’s easier to quit on relationships instead of practicing new and exciting ways to strengthen them. Why is that? Maybe the solution is putting our phones down for an hour to actually discuss what’s going on. Maybe it’s taking the time on a busy day to simply stop, look your man in the eyes and say – I Love You babe. Maybe it’s both. In a fast-paced technology driven world I too forget to sometimes stop and smell the roses. Before I got married, Stevie and I decided to participate in a pre-marital program …

Did you ever think you’d see the day when riding in cars with strangers, having dinner delivered to your doorstep, and the best one – finding Mr. Right through a little swipe on a dating app would be an actual thing? I’ve personally always wished that dating could revert back to the innocent old days of sitting in a booth talking about silly things and eating ice cream. Unfortunately that’s not the nature of first dates anymore. Dating apps are taking over the single world. Read more..

Think about it.  Do you remember when chatting with strangers online was considered …

Hey everyone.. it’s ya boi Steveasy aka Sazan’s hubby Stevie. I’m the writer for this guest post on her blog today celebrating my wife and our 1 year anniversary coming up.

Or at least I’ll try 😉

When Saz told me that I would be writing a blog post for her site I have to say that I wasn’t exactly thrilled. Writing is definitely …
