Where I’m based: Boise, Idaho
How long I’ve been blogging: I started my blog about a year ago, but I’ve been actively blogging for three months.
Blog/business basics: DIY, fashion on a budget, home improvement projects, becoming a runner — anything and everything that’s going on in my life.
What do you enjoy most about blogging? Connecting with other bloggers! I’ve made some amazing friends and love getting inspiration from their creative ideas.
Guilty pleasure: Reality television. You name it, I watch it. It’s a personal goal of mine to get on the show Big Brother.
Last thing I bought: A cute fedora for my trip to Lake Tahoe.
What’s your favorite thing in your closet? My black maxi dress. It’s become a staple this summer and I love to layer it.
Accessory of choice: Anything gold!
What DIY project in your house are you most proud of? Probably my TV stand because I got it for free and only had to purchase paint and new knobs to fix it up. I admire it every time I’m in my living room.
So how’s your first year of marriage treating you? It’s gone by so quickly! We’ve purchased a home, rescued a dog, gone through job changes — it’s been a crazy year! I’m lucky to have such a sweet, supportive husband to come home to every night.
