Raised in North Carolina I have always loved the Tar Heel State! I am currently working on a finance degree at East Carolina University - go pirates!

I love anything with a bow on it, thunderstorms, bright colors, and anything with a monogram on it (If it's not monogrammed is it really yours?). I'm a sucker for a shift dress and believe the higher the hair (or heel for that matter), the closer to God. It's no secret that I have a Pinterest problem, a shopping addiction, as well as a love affair with Trader Joes.

I started Pick Your Beau as a creative outlet - for years I have been reading other blogs and admiring the strong and confident women behind them. Then I realized that every girl can be that girl, and that definitely included me (and you reading this!). As Elle Woods once put it "you must always have faith in people, and most importantly you must always have faith in yourself".


  1. I love your blog and I am so glad that I found it! Again, congrats on your internship. You're gonna kill it! :)
