Kristi your blog covers an array of topics from crafts to fashion. Tell us about it and how you keep your ideas fresh. 

I have been crafting my whole life. I love being engulfed in a project. It is my sanctuary. I started my blog after starting a recipe sharing website. The blog on the site took off, and I enjoyed blogging the most. I decided to focus on that, and was born. has expanded from a DIY site to a lifestyle blog. I can’t tell you how much I love blogging. It feels so amazing to work for myself and to create something from scratch. I encourage anyone who is thinking about starting a blog to DO IT!


It is exciting to experience growth and have the flexibility to evolve into more than you ever thought possible. Are there bloggers or influencers that have inspired you?

A House In The Hills and Sarah Sherman Samuel are a couple of my favorite blogs. These ladies are SO STYLISH. 


Love them both. Aside from blogging what else are you up to?

I work full-time on my blog. The time I spend time with my husband and lil man outside of the blog is the most important thing to me. They are my everything. Life is so short and can be gone in a second. No to-do list or post is more important to me than spending time with my family. My son is turning one in two days. I am very emotional about it.

We couldn’t agree more! When hanging out with your family and crew what is your "go-to" outfit?

Right now, I love a flared jean with a fitted or flowy top and a hat. This outfit is so easy, and the hat hides my roots. With a baby, getting to the salon every 6-8 weeks just isn’t going to happen.


How do you accessorize your “go-to” outfit and what are a few of your favorite pieces?

I have a necklace from Target that I just love. It’s a long gold necklace with diamonds that interwove to connect. And of course I love my engagement ring. I actually consider it my wedding ring too. I opted for no wedding band.


I think that our styles naturally move into the decor of your home and lifestyle. Tell us a bit about how you pick your home decor? 

I used to spend a lot of money on home decor. However, now my theory is to be frugal when it comes to home decor because styles change so quickly. I would rather do an IKEA hack to make a piece my own than spend thousands of dollars on a great piece.

We couldn’t agree more. Our readers are always looking for fun and creative fitness ideas. Do you mind sharing your regime?

Of course now! I try to eat mostly healthy. However, I don’t believe in denying myself sweets and treats. I am big on whole and real foods over counting calories. My mom raised us this way. She was way ahead of her time when it came to diet.


Eating healthy is always a good trend to set and follow. Thanks for the reminder Kristi and thank you for giving us a peek into your life and blog.
