My motto’s “suffer the pain of discipline or suffer the pain of regret.” I work as hard as possible all day, every day to build the life of my dreams. I recently graduated with my doctorate in Piano Performance and a second Master’s in Musicology (aka music history). I couldn’t be happier because I’ve been in school for what seems like eternity. I got my BM at Peabody then my Master’s at Juilliard so yeah, I’m not kidding when I say I’ve been in school five-ever.
I’ve been teaching piano at Johns Hopkins University for the last 8 years, but I’m taking a break post-graduation because I need a breather. So, I’m currently blogging full time and freelancing as a social media consultant and food photographer. For those of you interested, I also have a second blog called Nomtastic Foods! I run it with Scenic Path, and we update it every Monday, Thursday and Saturday so make sure you guys take a look see.
When I have down time, I like gorging on delivery food and bingewatching Netflix, but I spend a lot of time exploring as well. I’m big on trying new things because life’s short, and I want to make sure I take advantage of every second.
I’m also a crazy dog lady! I seriously wish I could adopt every single shelter dog, but maybe in another lifetime. I have an adorable maltese named Daisy – click here to follow her on instagram for cute pics – and she’s the love of my life. She knows how to put a smile on my face, even after the worst of days.
I started Sensible Stylista back in 2011, and I’ve been going strong ever since. I pride myself on being a smart shopper who knows when to save and when to splurge. So, if you’re looking to live a glam life on a budget, make sure to follow along. I’ll be sharing all sorts of good stuff on here – think bargain finds, incredible deals, and much, MUCH more.
You don’t need to spend a fortune to look AND live like a rockstar, and I’m going to show you how to make the most of your moolah. Check back every Monday, Thursday and Saturday for new content, and don’t be afraid to reach out! I always love hearing from you guys, and I take requests for topics so don’t be shy.
