About me

Hi there! Let me introduce myself! 

I'm Tessa and I started this blog almost two years ago to document my journey into first time motherhood. But I blog about a whole lot more nowadays. Besides parenting and blogging, I also have a passion for shopping, baking, traveling, fashion and design. I also graduated law school in '09 and have been working full time ever since. Oh, and I also happen to be diagnosed with a little thing called klippel trenaunay syndome. 

All of these aspects of my life can pretty much be found here on my blog. No, I dont have a niche. I blog pretty much about everything I want, when I want. Since I make super long hours at work, blogging regularly can be a bit of a challenge. I do however try to put a new blog post up once every two weeks. It may not be the best blog in the world, but it's my blog. I blog because it's simply something I love to do. Nothing more and nothing less. This is and always will be a non commercial blog.

So, there you have it! A little something about the gal behind the blog. You are more than welcome to stick around for a while and look around this little blog of mine!


  1. Hi Tessa! I just came over after receiving your comment on my Trends post. I am digging on your blog color scheme! Hehe we must have good taste!

    I wanted to drop a line and let you know that you are a no-reply blogger, so I couldn't respond directly to your very helpful comment about lipstick (thank you!). If you want to turn off no-reply so that I can email you back after comments (and other bloggers can too) here is a really good tutorial: http://www.venustrappedinmars.com/2013/06/google-ultimate-no-reply-blogger.html

    Have a wonderful rest of the week and I look forward to following your blog :)

    1. Hi Laura!

      Thank you so much for the tip! I'm definitely going to check it out and see if I can fix that. I guess I'm still a bit of a noob when it comes to this whole blogging thing. And yes, mint and gold are the best! Haha! :)
