Why a fashion-focused blog? Well, I spent most of my young life struggling to find something, anything that fit. My weight fluctuated a lot, but I was always very curvy and nothing seemed to work. For a long time, I gave up and just wore t-shirts and mens jeans.
I studied design in Europe, England, and in America. It was my lifelong passion until I met my husband and we began our family. All my priorities changed and I let go of some things that weren't important anymore. The early years of motherhood were a blissful chaos, but as they grew and I realized I that I needed to be an example of confidence for them in how I dress. I didn't want them to hate their bodies the way my mother hated hers and I in turn hated mine for so long. And I didn't want them to feel that they had to conform to certain ideas of beauty and talent.
I felt like it was finally time to put some effort into learning to dress my shape and to pursue some interests and personal goals, so that one day I can help them navigate all the unflattering trends and the unattainable shapes out there to find joy with their own unique beauty and interests.
Being a stay-at-home mom makes me joyful. I may not bounce out of bed everyday to sing with the birds and dance in a field about it, but my family is the most important thing to me and I consider myself very blessed to be able to be home with them. As an added benefit I am now extremely busy in a positive way. We're constantly on the go and usually on foot, so I feel like I'm in the best shape of my life (of course I also make exercise a priority). We also deal with numerous food allergies which means I make all our meals from scratch.
As we travel through life and around the world, we are learning so much. Life is an amazing experience and it is worth living it deliberately.
I am so happy to have a way to share my interest in fashion, design, cooking and crafting. I hope I'll inspire you with ideas for your own style and creations.
