Hi, I’m Natalie!
Welcome to my lifestyle blog
I’m 26 years old and live in the Chicago suburbs with my husband, Zak, and our 2 boys, Brody and Ryder. I created this blog to share the things I love, my best tips and tricks, and my everyday life experiences to connect with other women and moms. My goal for this blog is for it to be an inspiration destination for you for all things motherhood, fashion, beauty, fitness, and wellness.
Fun facts about me!
- I married my husband, Zak, in September 2018. We started dating in 2015 and knew we were meant for each other. We met through mutual friends. He makes me laugh everyday and he is truly my best friend. We love spending quality time together. We are 4 years and 4 days apart! Our children are truly our WORLD.
- Brodybear is my stepson. I truly believe we were meant to be a family because when I met Brody, it was a very natural and special connection. Brody is the sweetest boy and big brother. He just turned 6 years old in November. Becoming his stepmom changed me and I love watching him grow and learn everyday.
- We just had our baby boy, Ryder, this past June. He is such a fun + happy boy. He is 7 months old. He loves his big brother so much and is so intrigued with everything he does. I love experiencing life through his eyes.
- I am a lululemon store manager. I have been with lululemon for almost 6 years and love my company. I have grown in more ways than I can count through the leadership skills they offer. I have met some of my best friends and have made so many amazing connections.
- I love collecting dainty gold jewelry, working out, fashion, a good latte, cooking and relaxing with a glass of wine.
- We are super close with both of our families. We live 5 minutes from Zaks parents and 30 from my parents. They love coming over to visit the boys.
- I completed my 200 hr yoga teacher training in 2014. I still enjoy teaching when my schedule allows. I love mindfulness and starting my day with gratitude.
- At the end of 2019 we purchased our first home! It’s a new 3 bedroom 3 story townhome. We are currently working on some projects around the house.
- I love cooking and eating whole nutritious foods. I enjoy finding recipes and putting my own spin on them and creating new ones.
- I love chocolate!
