A blogger, designer, aspiring influencer & forever optimist dedicated to helping you create a home you love!
I didn’t always know my true passion was interior design, sharing inspiration, and helping others along the way…
Born and raised in Long Island, NY I spent the first twenty-five years of my career in NYC as a successful Children’s Wear Designer.
During those years I side hustled on a mission to “Find My Why”.
I was also distracted being the best wife and mother I could be focused on raising two awesome, independent children now adults.
Then came the day I woke up and decided I was done just “showing up” for life, without a purpose, in a job that no longer filled my soul.
So I RETIRED from the garment industry and set out on a path to create a life I LOVE!
Along the way I struggled with self doubt and had to learn to accept the fact that it’s ok to start at the bottom in your second act.
Confidence only comes from taking action and being ok with making mistakes.
I did a lot of self help work and learned that my past does not define me.
With hard work and determination I CAN and WILL achieve anything I put my mind towards and YOU CAN TOO!
Mindset is everything!
What started out as a way to keep my sanity and stay creative during the quarantine of COVID 19 turned into clarity.
Through the process of finding my voice, I discovered I LOVE blogging just as much if not more than I love “traditional” Interior Design.
Aware of the need to pivot and diversify given the state of the industry and the fast growth of the online world I dove right into what quickly became an obsession with providing valuable resources and inspiration to as many people as possible through my blog!
Having grown up in a family that is the definition of DIY I learned by example that you can literally figure out how to do and make anything.
Your only limitation in life is YOU!
Passionate about teaching, giving back, and sharing I have discovered this blog is the perfect vehicle to share my journey and inspire others along the way!
I welcome you to follow along and #beinspired!
