About Me


Hi, I’m Tess!  I’m married to a wonderful man named Eric and we are quite in love with each other, and our daughter Isla.  We met working next door to one another in college and have been together ever since!  I spend most of my days chasing around my little booger and trying to teach and entertain her, but in my spare time, I LOVE to shop and find affordable and fashionable items to incorporate into my wardrobe.  I also love to cook and create or try new recipes.

I appreciate photography and design and consider them a few of my side hobbies.  Oh, and laughing.  Laughing is my favorite hobby.  I am incredibly sarcastic, because you just can’t take anyone (including yourself that seriously).  I can often be found either having small dance parties with my small human and husband or unloading the dishwasher.  I love listening to podcasts and music and watching movies over and over again.  I love to read a good book and get lost in the words and am notorious for finishing every book I read, even if I don’t like it.  I love traveling and having lots of experiences — because I believe that in the end, that’s what we look back on – the experiences, the moments, the little things.💛

Thank you for taking an interest in this blog!  I hope you find a new outfit or a new recipe that you enjoy, or at least someone to relate to in this crazy thing we called life! XXOO
