A handful of beautiful blooms, handwritten notes and pretty parties… These are just a few of the lovely details that keep me going every day. As a blogger, designer and lover of entertaining and stylish soirees, I'm so blessed to be doing what I love day in and day out at Style Me Pretty.

I live on the coast just North of Boston with my husband and our two sweet pets. When I'm not coordinating pretty features for Style Me Pretty, you can find me designing or writing for my personal blog, Bisou Style, crafting a delicious meal, playing with decor or obsessing over gorgeous calligraphy.

I am beyond thankful I am to be doing what I love every. single. day. Working with some of the most talented vendors and bloggers I've ever met is an honor and I can't wait to keep curating the pretty for you!
