I'm always humbled (and baffled) by anyone's interest in my blog, so if you're here - merci!
What do you do for a living?
A couple days of the week I work outside of the home at a globally recognized PR firm in Fayetteville, Arkansas as a writer. The other days, I spend at home with baby girl.
This hybrid SAHM/three-day-a-week working schedule was the perfect solution for allowing me time with my daughter, while also allowing me to keep pursuing my career ambitions in the public relations and creative industries, (with a darn great company, I might add.)
Where do you shop?
The better question would probably be, "Where don't you shop?" Locally, I love Maude Boutique, Savoir-Faire, Riffraff and Hazel's Haven. I try very hard to buy and source as many of my outfits and accessories as I can from small, local merchants. With that said, I always manage to find loads of treasures at Forever 21, H&M and Bauble Bar.
Who takes your outfit photos? What kind of camera do you use?
My sweet husband usually falls victim to this task, but I also use a tripod take my own using a self-timer. I use a Canon Rebel t3i and crop/edit my photos in Photoshop.
How do you create your collages?
For compiling collages, I love SnagIt by Techsmith and also Photoshop. I will say, it took a while to get the hang of Photoshop, but once I did, it became my go-to for making collages and blog banners. Pic Monkey also has a pretty cool collage feature, which I've used a few times on product posts.
Do you have kids?
We have a baby girl, Caroline Rose, born October 14, 2013 at 8:30 a.m. on the dot. You can read her official introduction posts here and here. We adore being parents and love our little peanut more than life itself.
We were also (very) surprised and totally pumped to find out we were expecting another baby (GIRL!) this past spring! Ainsley Catherine will be joining our family sometime in mid-December and, although we are anticipating plenty of craziness, we're over the moon.

Do you take guest blog submissions?
No, sorry. Just to keep things simple, (and because this is a small, non-income-earning blog in which I usually just ramble about my kid), I write all my own content.
Where do you get Caroline's clothes and bows?
I find a lot of Caroline's clothes on Amazon, actually. I've also found cute things at Walmart and Target, especially pajamas. My favorite brands are Nannette Baby, Mud Pie and Petit Ami. We also find great play clothes at Carter's and OshKosh Baby.
Bows! I order most of hers from Girl Girl Bowtique. Kat is super talented and her prices are out-of-this-world amazing. Top-notch quality, too. I've also ordered from Harts & Roses and really loved them, as well.
Who does your hair?
Crown Beauty Bar in Fayetteville. If you want good hair, you go to The Crown. The end.
