I started the Chic Site after I caught my Thanksgiving turkey on fire. Seriously. I was a wannabe domestic goddess armed with a printout from MarthaStewart.com. The recipe called for a brine and a cheesecloth… I’d never used either. The brine involved white wine, the giant turkey pushed the cheesecloth right up to the top of the flaming hot oven, the results were tragic. After I recovered from that disaster, I decided someone else needed to show me how to do things around the house. I wanted to try making things that were cool, but not fancy. I wanted to cook food that was delicious, but achievable. I wanted to figure out what to wear, but I couldn’t afford anything beyond the clearance rack. Also, I needed to accomplish these things in a reasonable amount of time. When I couldn’t find the type of content I was looking for, I decided to try and create it myself. I’m thrilled to report that I haven’t lit any poultry on fire since this site came to be.

I don’t know how to design your living room or revamp your wardrobe. What I do know how to do for you is what I do for myself… figure out a cool colorful accessory, try a bright hue on the wall, mix classic pieces with items that are trendy or blend polished with the bargain bin. Personal style is all about figuring out what you like, feel free to try out these ideas until you decide what that is.
In this category I discuss anything I think may better help you with something you’re going through. I discuss my postpartum depression, the struggles I’ve had in marriage and in business. I talk about raising my kids, my road to becoming a foster parent and navigating the loss of my brother. I share all the intimate details of my life because I believe that when we’re honest about our struggles, we give others permission to do the same.
