Feminine style and joyful living for city moms
Hey, sweet friend!
Welcome to Something Pretty! Whether you’ve been checking in since 2010 when I started this space as a wedding blog, or you’re visiting for the first time, I’m tickled pink that you’re here!
I’m Lisa, and I’m a New York City-born, internationally raised Texas girl who now calls Raleigh, North Carolina home. I’m married to the boy I had a crush on while I was studying abroad in Austria, and we have the sweetest blue-eyed baby boy. I’m a lifelong writer, and I’m passionate about my role as a mama, my Catholic faith, and seeking joy and beauty in everyday life. On Something Pretty, you’ll find feminine (but never fussy) fashion and beauty ideas for city moms, my honest reflections on marriage and motherhood, and peeks into where and how I spend my days with my little family. (Spoiler alert: we can usually be found in our charming little home or at brunch in downtown Raleigh.)
The smell of peonies reminds me of my wedding day, city skylines make my heart skip a beat, bright lipstick and fabulous shoes are my weaknesses, and prayer with a side of iced coffee is my favorite way to start the day.
Thanks so much for reading–I can’t wait to get to know you!
