About Me

This is my personal style, fashion and sometimes food blog.  I started this blog as a hobby and a way to meet people in Chicago as I'm not from here.  The opportunities and the people I have met through blogging has been amazing.  Four years ago, I launched t+j Designs with my sister, Tiffany.  We design clothing and jewelry and sell our items all over the world.  Our jewelry has been featured in InStyle, Oprah, US Weekly, Who What Wear and many others.  My personal style press is located here.

A little about me:

I have lived in Seattle, San Francisco, New York and now Chicago
I am passionate about fashion (more like obsessed) and shopping
My career started as an auditor for a big accounting firm
Being a merchandise manager was one of the best and stressful jobs of my life
I have two little boys under the age of 3 so they keep me busy
I love shiny things - sequins, rhinestones, crystals
I love reality TV
Love the summer, hate the winter
Adore eating out - from tasting menus to Taco Bell, I love it all
I believe in doing what you love, working hard and success will follow
