TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOU.
I am a wardrobe stylist, shopping consultant, and style blogger living in Nashville. I am an avid animal lover; I ride horses regularly and have my own horse named Delila. She’s my baby! I also enjoy visits to local coffee shops, anything Jane Austen, and traveling.

WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO START BLOGGING?
I actually decided to start blogging to support my styling and shopping consulting business and grow my name. I fell in love with blogging and started posting regularly a few months ago. It has been so much fun to watch it grow and meet some awesome creative people in the process.

AS A WARDROBE STYLIST, DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL STYLING TIPS YOU COULD SHARE?
Wear what works for your body. If there’s a trend out there that you see and you are unsure about it and how it will look on you, don’t wear it! We always look best in what we feel most confident in.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?
My personal style draws from a little bit of everything. I definitely have some bohemian influences with layers and prints, but I also love classic, structured pieces. I think it’s the most fun to blend these two styles and create unique looks.

WHAT ARE YOUR TOP FIVE FAVORITE BEAUTY PRODUCTS? DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL BEAUTY TIPS?
I am a distributor for Motives Cosmetics, so most of my favorite beauty products come from this line ☺

« Motives for La La Mineral Mascara: can’t live without it, I literally wear it every day. Mascara opens the eyes and helps you look more alert and awake. This adds a lot of product to my lashes, making them look more full. Plus it’s mineral, which I love!
« Motives Element Color Box: this is my go-to eye shadow palette. It has every shade that I need, so I wear it almost every day. It has multiple uses too, I use the dark colors with an angled brush for liner, and the light colors as highlights on my cheekbones.
« Lumiere de Vie Rejuvenation Crème: I swear by this stuff. It moisturizes deep into my skin and leaves my skin glowing. I put it on every morning and every night.
« Fixx Dry Shampoo: I’m always on the go, and sometimes my hair needs that little extra help in the morning (I don’t want to make it too obvious that I just rolled out of bed!). I love this product because it makes my hair easier to style and doesn’t leave a sticky residue.
« Motives for La La Lipstick in Red Carpet: you can’t have a bad day while wearing red lipstick; I live by this rule! I love this shade because it’s bright and stays put throughout the day.

Beauty tip: One of my favorite little tricks is highlighting my cheekbones with a light gold eye shadow. It makes them pop and gives just enough shimmer to make them appear more prominent.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT IN NASHVILLE?
Hmm…I’m a vegetarian and we have a fabulous all-vegetarian restaurant here called Wild Cow. I think that would have to take my vote as my favorite spot to eat here in town!
