about me

My degree is in fashion merchandising, but after staying home for 10 years to raise my boys, I went back to work in a completely unrelated field. After telling my husband that if I was in college now, I would want to be a fashion writer or blogger, he said “why wouldn’t you do that now?”  So here I am! My boys are 15 and 18 and they are not into fashion, in fact, they really don’t understand me at all…. 

 Currently I live in the burbs of Chicago, too close to Oak Brook mall. Whenever I get stressed or something comes up where other people might say ” I need a drink”, I say “I’m going to the mall”. I don’t even have to buy anything, I really like browsing around, it’s my therapy. Oh fine, yes,  I also say ” I need a drink” from time to time. But drinking and shopping do not a good combination make.

Have you ever noticed when you’re shopping and a salesperson asks you if you need help, what do you say? 

“no thanks, I’m just browsing” 

There you have it. Next time you say it, think of me!

Thank you for stopping by.
