Kentucky girl here! I'm a wife and mama of 3. I'm also a licensed cosmetologist for over 10 years. I love beauty and fashion! I'm a homesteader (is that a word?)and homemaker. I love growing a garden, feeding my chickens, making recipes, cleaning, and just taking care of my family. But also......being a girl..playing with clothes and shoes, hair and makeup! With all that being said...I decided to create this blog to share all my passions! I want to share the bits and pieces that make up "me".
Umm..where should I start?! Here we go...I've got to give you some back story. I grew up in a very “country” family. My grandpa and most of my dad’s family were farmers. My dad grew up working a farm. My mama’s family was similar. So, it was passed down to me and my brother. I was raised tending a garden, fishing, hunting, homemade cooking...all that. It was our way of life and I never knew no different. And growing up I never realized how blessed I truly was. In the kitchen all day with my mama and nanny..you name it we made it. Nowadays organic is all the rave and we ate organic and didn’t even no it lol!! && today I do the same with my family!
Now, I grew up with a mama who didn’t leave the house without her makeup(she didn't wear much shes always been beautiful) and always looked her best. Watching my mama, that’s where my love for beauty and fashion started. Before I attended cosmetology school....I was doing hair in my kitchen, creating makeup looks on all of my friends, doing prom and homecoming hair and makeup. && thinking I was overly cool putting outfits together from my mom's 80's/90's wardrobe haha. Honestly, since I can remember I've been doing it. It's always came naturally to me. So, at 18 I started cosmetology school.
I have worked behind the chair, been a hair coloring educator, makeup artist, wedding and event styling specialist, and fashion stylist. I style the clothing, hair, and makeup for events and photo shoots on set. I've been published many times with my work being featured in national and international magazines! & this year I will hit over 200 weddings that I've had the pleasure to service.
As I start this blog, I hope to share with you my knowledge of beauty and fashion, entertain you with my sweet southern ways, and keep you up to date with my life as a homesteader and modern homemaker!
Ya'll get ready, there's a new day that aint been touched yet!!!
