Something Pretty is a life and style blog where I love to share, reflect on, and dream up ways to never let something pretty pass me by. My name is Lisa, and since 2010, this is where I’ve been sharing inspiration for going the extra mile to make even the smallest things in life extra special, from wearing an outfit that makes me feel comfortable and confident, to making my home a place I truly love, to celebrating both big and small holidays in style.
My lifelong passion for writing led me to launch Something Pretty on a snowy winter day during my junior year of college. Since then, I’ve picked up my magazine journalism degree from the University of Texas, worked as a writer and editor at a national wedding magazine, married the love of my life, bought a cute little house in Raleigh, North Carolina, and welcomed a sweet baby boy to the world…blogging all along the way. While a lot has changed on Something Pretty over the years (it started as a wedding blog!), nowadays, the things you’ll find here most are my favorite outfits and beauty ideas, inspiration for celebrating throughout the year, updates on our home, and snippets of life with my little family.
The smell of peonies reminds me of my wedding day, city skylines make my heart skip a beat, bright lipstick and fabulous shoes are my weaknesses, and prayer with a side of iced coffee is my favorite way to start the day.
Thanks so much for reading–I can’t wait to get to know you!
