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.

Current Wish List + Recent Buys

I do most of my shopping online these days and I've been absolutely smitten with a lot of the spring/summer collections I'm seeing.The downside to online shopping is of course debating over which size to order because brands vary so widely, but I'm finding that most stores have great shipping and return policies so ordering a couple of sizes if you're unsure isn't an issue. I also like trying things on in the comfort of my own home and not feeling the pressure to make a decision right then and there.Here are some of my recent favorites/wish list items. I have a couple of the LOFT dresses already (the dot and lace trim) and am waiting to pull the trigger on a few other wish list items.What are you currently craving? ...more

Our Weekend...

This Saturday, I had the honor of co-hosting a baby sprinkle for my friend Amanda as we anticipate the arrival of her sweet baby boy!Before gearing up for the day and running a ton of pre-party errands, I enjoyed a latte and it was made that much more fun with this sweet hand-stamped spoon from Jessica N Designs....more

RewardStyle Conference 2015 + Outfits

Happy Tuesday! I had such an amazing time at the RewardStyle conference last weekend and by far the best part was meeting so many wonderful ladies, including many I have "known" online for years.The first night of the conference was a welcome party hosted by Stuart Weiztman, poolside at the Joule Hotel. The theme was "resort wear" so I paired my CeCe by Cythia Steffe dress with cobalt woven Tory Burch wedges and a bright pink Kate Spade cross body bag ....more

Our Weekend…(in Dallas)

We took a long weekend in Dallas this past week so that I could attend the RewardStyle conference at the Joule Hotel and though it was an awesome trip, we are all exhausted and happy to be home! I'll share more about the conference in an upcoming post but I thought I would share a few snaps from our weekend. I didn't get to spend a ton of time with Kevin and Harper due to the conference schedule, but we did share some moments together as a family in between all of their fun outings and nap time ....more

Dallas Bound!

Happy Wednesday! Tonight I'll be packing for a trip to Dallas to attend the RewardStyle Conference! I was invited for the past couple of years to go, but the first year I was too nervous to go (which is silly) and the next I was like eight months pregnant, so I decided to skip it ....more

Our Weekend…& Lilly Pulitzer for Target

Before Harper turned one, we decided that we would buy tickets to Disney's Frozen on Ice as soon as they went on sale, because, she will love it right? I mean, she'll be almost two, we thought.It was kind of a risky move on our part and truthfully I was a little worried she would have a meltdown or not sit through the two-hour show. We went to the 3:30 show which is conveniently after her nap time, so at least there was one good thing on our side--- a well-rested toddler.Fortunately, we were also super close to the ice ....more
