Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Hi! My name is Lisa and this is my first year participating in the ultimate blog party hosted by the lovely ladies at 5 Minutes for Mom.  Yayyy!!!

 

London 2012

I am the founder of The Domestic Life Stylist and still consider myself a newbie blogger in the grand scheme of things.  Started in June 2011 my ramblings (otherwise called posts) have come a long way from the when  I first began.  I started blogging on a smaller level in mid 2010.   Back then, the blog was named after my first ebook “21 Smart Ways to Save Money”.

I quickly realized that I did not want to just talk about saving money but, I wanted to relate to women on numerous levels.  Entertaining, beautytravel, wellness, life at home are my passions and hence…it is all intertwined.  The Domestic Life Stylist is a celebration of a lifestyle that is rich with fulfillment, excitement and the occasional domestic chaos that comes along with being a mostly-at-home mom.

I live that life with my 2 year old daughter and my husband of almost 11 years.  We live in the DC metro area but travel more than most and love every minute of it.

St. Thomas, VI 2010

I am an avid home cook, lover of travel,  licensed drug pusher 🙂 and drink at least 2 cups of green tea a day.

Welcome and thanks for stopping by.  Please leave a comment and I will do the same for you (pinkie promise).

    Hello! I LOVE the look and feel of your blog! And I agree, there are so many fun things to write about… it’s nice to keep a broad range of topics 🙂

    Love that family picture, too. Thanks for stopping by my blog – ENJOY your upcoming trip to Disney!! You should take that little princess of yours to a character greeting with the Disney Princesses (get reservations!) – either Akershus (at Norway in EPCOT) or Cinderella’s Dining room at the Castle in Magic Kingdom – such a cool way for kids to get to meet them! 😉

    Have a fun blog party week!
