Behind the Blog

August 10, 2010

Some would say you never venture far from home without an American Express card, however in my world the AMEX is replaced with my favorite tube of lipgloss and my daughter’s pacifier, thus the muse behind the blog name. I am a 30 something stay at home mother to two beautiful children…well make that three if you want to include my husband! I have a true love for all luxurious and fashionable items ranging from clothing, to home decor to accessories. Despite my expensive taste and love for fashion, on my best day, I would have dropped off to school, did laundry, taken care of an infant, picked up from school and had dinner on the table by six o’clock clad in my favorite jeans, a t-shirt and a well brushed pony…a long cry from my pre family days!!

Although I am completely devoted to my family, I find it very important to find time to devote to the things that make me happy. Two of my favorite past times include writing and socializing, so I thought to myself what better outlet than a blog. I am sure this blog will become very random at times, I have been known to be quite comical and all over the place so this blog will be a true indication of my likes, and dislikes, thoughts and reactions to things and events that I encounter in my roles as a wife, mother, friend and most importantly being myself
