Today, my long time friend, Marisa from A Lovely Living is guest blogging for me! Ever since we have been friends, all the way back in the 90's (hellooooo does that make me feel old!), she has always been super stylish, never missing a beat (or should I say trend)! Her blog is the perfect combo of fashion, home decor, and sweet recipes! You could say she is the modern day June Cleaver, Martha Stewart and Rachel Zoe all rolled into one! I'm super excited for you all to get to know her as I have over the years!
Hi Everyone! I'm Marisa from A Lovely Living and I'm quite flattered to be guest posting for Becky while she's off enjoying her trip to NYC! Becky and I go the whole way back to high school and we've managed to keep in touch all of these years. During our high school years I tagged along on a few bus trips that her parents arranged to visit NYC. Those trips could very well have been the start of our obsession with fashion. We've certainly come a long way!
Becky has always been an inspiration to me, so when she started blogging I couldn't have been happier to be able to receive her advice on a daily basis. It turns out we still have similar taste which turns up over and over in pieces that we both own.
You probably recognize this Gap moto jacket from Becky's posts and I think I get almost as much wear out of mine (see post here). We also happened to both be sporting this jacket when I linked up with her monthly Link-Up for styling a white t-shirt. I think we were both laughing the entire day. What are the chances??
I've gained so many useful tips from Becky during her time blogging. One in particular that reminds me of her daily is by using Bare Minerals Well-Rested Eye Brightener. She wrote about this product in one of her first posts and I am so thankful that she did because it is amazing! If you care to see a few of my latest beauty favs, which include those pictured below, click here.
Thanks to Becky, I was also introduced to Blair Ritchey, her college friend and incredibly talented handbag designer. I currently own her Mini Lulu Foldover and I can't wait to invest in more of her collection. Check out one of the outfits I paired it with here.
Thanks for taking the time to read and feel to free to stop by A Lovely Living when you have a chance! Fashion is big part of my blog, but I also enjoy sharing recipes I've tried (I have quite the sweet tooth!) as well as the occasional beauty and decorating tips. Essentially ways to make your living lovely Have a great day!
