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.

Though it's still over 90 degrees outside most days, it's safe to say that along with cooler temperatures, I'm craving a lot of other things fall brings--- like layering, coats, boots and bolder makeup looks.I got to test out some of H-E-B's Fall Beauty Picks and I'm sharing with you the look I created. The products I was sent to try are: | ...more

Our Weekend...

Kevin had his fantasy football draft Saturday, so I planned a fun mommy + daughter day. Though I absolutely adore spending time together as a family, there's something special about a one-on-one day with this sweet girl.Kevin joined us for Little Gym before he made his way down to his friend's house for the draft and then Harper and I headed out for some lunch after her nap.We shared some chicken roll-ups, tomato soup and slaw from Zoe's Kitchen. Yum! ...more

Wednesdays in White

Thank you for all of your feedback on getting back to the DSLR photos! Kevin has been a champ dealing with taking these every morning while holding Harper on his hip, so if there's anyone to thank for no more mirror photos, it's him!I pretty much compulsively buy white dresses and this J.Crew bow-back dress from a couple of years ago is a favorite. I paired it with a navy blue cardigan (not shown) when I got to the office.The one thing that's tricky about this dress is that the fabric wrinkles like crazy ....more

Misty Mornings

If the weather forecast and temperature gauge in your car haven't convinced you that it's too hot outside, behold today's photos.I had to deepen the contrast in them in iPhoto because as you can imagine, the entire lens fogged right up in the morning humidity…and I didn't notice until after we took them. Sigh....more

Recent Purchases + Haul Video

After sharing my hair tutorial video recently on my YouTube channel, I got a lot of sweet notes and wonderful feedback about making more of an effort to keep my channel up. I promised to try and film one video per month so I shared some recent purchases today in a "haul video" (I still think that's a bit of a funny term, but it is what it is). You can watch the video, below, or simply check out the items in this post! ...more

I'd Rather Be in Scrubs...

Dressing for this office isn't always fun. There, I said it. Sometimes, I look at the doctors and nurses in their scrubs and I think to myself "yes." Yes to all of that.Yes to wearing the same, comfy thing everyday and not asking myself when the last time I wore that dress was or having moments where I come to the realization that I've worn the same pair of pants three days in a row.Yes to never wearing heels, ever, and instead having an awesome collection of brightly colored running shoes.I definitely feel a sense of burnout sometimes coming up with new outfits ....more
