Veronika's Blushing

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.

Atlantis Resort- Paradise Island Review

When we were picking a vacation destination for a family trip earlier this year, I was looking into options and saw that a friend of mine had traveled to Atlantis recently with her husband and toddler son. I checked out the website and there were a ton of attractions that appealed to me--- water slides, aquariums with tens of thousands of fish and other aquatic species, a splash pad for kids, lots of excursions and experiences, etc...not to mention the gorgeous beach and abundant pools! I figured if we had bad weather, we would have other things we could do at the resort ....more

Holiday Gift Guide: Toddler Girl

Christmas shopping for a toddler is fun--- but I think we can all agree on one thing--- there are always too many toys! With the limited space we have, I try to make it a point to store away and/or donate toys that are no longer used or that she's grown out of, but I couldn't resist picking up some new items for the holidays. I love seeing her expressions as she opens and discovers new toys and books.Below are some gift ideas if you have a young toddler like me! ...more
