In case you were wondering a little about me...
I was born in Manhattan to two native New Yorkers who met working in the Garment Industry. Fashion was the family business. Suburban Connecticut is where I grew up and often daydreamed about someday attending New York Fashion Week.
When I was in college studying Communication & Media, I met Stephen Caruso— the man of my dreams. We married nearly one year after our first date, and have been adventuring together ever since. While we moved around the country for his job, I freelanced as a makeup artist, worked in retail, and blogged about style & beauty as a creative outlet.
Moving back to New York led to serendipitously working for two major fashion houses, where I learned the ins and outs of the industry, and attended Fashion Week both backstage and in the tents. Soon after, Verily Magazine brought me on as Beauty Editor, which was my dream job. It combined all of my passions and hobbies into one, and granted me a deeper understanding of print and digital media. One year after that, I had my daughter and experienced true fulfillment in motherhood.
Everywhere I have traveled, I have met incredible women who inspired me to be the best version of myself; to wake up every day feeling confident and ready to Carpe Diem. My Catholic faith has given me the understanding of my dignity and value that comes from God, who made me and desires me to be my very best self. It is from the relationship I have with Christ that helps me to persevere through life’s trials, celebrate the little things, and share God’s love with as many people as I can.
I want to inspire you to explore your feminine genius by investing in your self-worth. It’s a journey, one that I love walking on right alongside you. This website is the place where I can share my lifestyle and my tips and tricks to live a more fulfilling life, which include expert style and beauty advice, tips for healthy living, and reflections on marriage and motherhood.
