Veronika

My name is Veronika and I'm mom to sweet baby girl Harper Reese and proud wife to my husband Kevin. I work full time as a public relations professional in the healthcare industry and I love my job. 

I was born in Slovakia. My parents and I escaped communism when I was just three years old and we moved to Canada where I lived, went to school and graduated from college. That's when I met my husband and moved to the place I now call home- Houston, Texas.

I always loved all things pretty growing up, and having modeled when I was in Toronto, I loved fashion.

After our 2009 wedding, I decided to start blogging when my inbox was flooded with emails about my hair, makeup, etc. I wanted to share all of my favorite things, tips and tricks in one place and develop relationships with like-minded women so we could share our love for all of the girly things we loved.

I also focus on personal style, showcasing my daily outfits and I love sharing our home decor and DIY projects. Recently, I've ben blogging about motherhood as well!

My husband and I have a shi-tzu/miniature poodle mix , Lulu, and and we are so delighted to be blessed by recently becoming parents to our first daughter.

Our Weekend...

We had a pretty fun-filled weekend starting with a playdate at Meg's house with Katie, Judy and Michelle and our kiddos. Meg is launching an online baby boutique called Little Kennedy Boutique so we got our little ones together to shoot some of the offerings! Katie, me and Meg Harper and daddy had a special story time moment later that night since we were gone most of the day ....more

Skirting It

It's getting to that temperature in Houston where when you get into your car after work, you have to blast the AC at maximum levels because your car has been baking in the sun all day. But I said I was looking forward to warmer weather, so no complaints here! Today I wore this beautiful full skirt from Madewell ....more

Harper Reese- 10 Months Old!

We're in double digits, folks! Just two more months until this baby is one year old and each and every month I still marvel at the time that has gone by. Does the world just run in "fast-forward" mode when you become a parent? ...more

Our Saturday...

This morning by some amazing miracle, Harper woke up at 6:30, had her bottle, played around in our bed for a bit and then went back to sleep until 9:30! It was glorious and though I had to wake up to pump, I did get about an hour and a half of extra sleep after that. What a great way to start the day!After our morning sleep-in, we went to Harper's last swim class for the season (we will resume again in the fall) ....more

(Spring) Cleaning

It's Spring and I've got cleaning on my mind. Cliche, I know, but there are days (and weeks…and months) where our house just gets out of control. I'm talking stuff on every surface, laundry not put away, the floor of my closet covered in clothes…it goes on and on ....more
