    My Jobs & How I Do Them

    Pet Profiles : The Cornish Kids

    Hey friends! I did some polls on my Instagram before the end of the year asking what y’all wanted to see on the blog & more than once the response was, “more of my dogs!” I am definitely on board with this! So today I am going to share profiles on each of our fur kids! First up is my old man Solo! Solo is 9 years old, he’ll be 10 in May. The shelter I rescued him from said he was a Border Collie mix but I really think that’s just because he’s black and white! We have no idea what he’s mixed with but he’s just the handsomest…

    Girl Boss : Make-Up Artist Mallory Belote

    I met Mallory via Instagram a few months ago and we instantly clicked! She has one of those personalities people are just drawn to. In fact, she’s SO super nice that when I posted her story about being featured on my blog to my story, two people instantly DM’d me with excitement to read this feature! Mallory is also the whole reason I joined Style Collective. She has such a heart for others, whether you want advice on make-up, blogging, dealing with grief, or just advice on life she is there for you. When I met one of our fellow SC sisters IRL, Mallory came up in conversation & we…

    Our Love Story

    Happy New Year friends! If you follow me on Instagram you know I did a poll yesterday asking about a variety of possible content topics for the blog in 2019. One question I asked about was if you were interested in relational topics, the answer was a 100% YES! So I figure before I can dish out what relational knowledge I have, I should start with sharing Scot & I’s love story! Let’s rewind to the end of summer 2010. I was working for a pet resort, (which shall remain nameless) & was in the process of transferring locations to move into the on site apartment at the location Scot…
