I live and work in the sunny, beachy, and beautiful Tampa Bay area. By day, I have a blast teaching Pure Barre classes (and taking them too). By night, you can find me working here on my little piece of the Internet. Aside from blogging, the remainder of the time you can be sure to find me shopping for a great new fashion find or amazing beauty buy. I’m a girl on a regular budget; I don’t think you have to break the bank to look and feel like a million bucks. Hopefully, some of my bargain shopping and inspiration can be of service to you.
If you’re new to Helpful Homemade, you can expect to see posts about DIY projects, personal style, beauty products I love, a generous smattering of recipes and food, and other goodies. My husband and I are in the process of decorating, remodeling and DIYing our house to our heart’s content to make it into our perfect little space.
Our furbabies Lucia (she’s an Australian shepherd) and Sherman (our rescue pup…we really don’t know what breed this little monster is) also like to pop in to say hi from time to time. My site is my happy place, and I hope you find it to be one for you as well!
I am also available for freelance writing and social media consulting projects. Please refer to my LinkedIn profile for qualifications!
If you would like to collaborate, are interested in advertising, or simply want to say “hi,” please email me at email@example.com – I love hearing from you!
I write honest and fully disclosed review posts about worthy products. However, I do reserve the right to not review an item sent to me if I feel it isn’t a fit for my personal style/my audience. If you would like to send me something for review, sponsor one of my outfits (or part of one), or just want to get in touch, please email me your inquiry and we can discuss opportunities!
