I'm Lisa Kirk, a wife, mama, writer, and founder. Since 2010, Something Pretty has been home to my favorite memories, reflections, and inspirations. Thanks so much for reading!

Small Business Saturday has such a sweet new meaning this year.

I’ve had a few requests to bring back Outfit Diary posts, which is so encouraging to me. Even though it has been a while, I love hearing that those posts are informative and fun to peruse! Looking back over the last nine months, I realized there are a handful of pieces that I’ve relied on […]

I’m excited to share my fourth annual Catholic gift guide today! Every year that I’ve been curating this post (see 2020 here, 2019 here, and 2018 here), the search for products I love has gotten easier and easier. There are so many incredible artists, writers, creators, and innovators in the Church who are sharing their […]
