Get To Know Me

Hey y'all! My name is Claire and I am from Scottsdale, Arizona. I am a 3rd grade teacher by day and blogger by night. I have seen lots of new faces around here so I'd thought I would give you some background and let you in on a little bit more about me. I hope you enjoy and I hope you stay a while. 

I was originally born in Detroit, Michigan but grew up in Orange County, California. When I was 18, I moved to Phoenix, Arizona to attend ASU and pursue a dream of changing kids lives. Four stressful, grueling, and dedicated years later I graduated with a BA in Education. I found a cute little apartment in the heart of Old Town, Scottsdale and started teaching the sweetest 8 year olds I had ever met. They warm my heart, make me laugh, and remind me of how important life is. I couldn't ask for a more fulfilling job. 

I love everything about fashion, beauty, and being the best version of yourself. I am a firm believer that if you look good, you feel good, and therefore, you do good. I am a dedicated Nordstrom shopper, skin care enthusiast, and Starbucks lover. I live for the fall; The crisp, air, beautiful colors, cozy sweaters, boots, and delicious comfort food set my soul on fire. Not just me, but my family and friends believe that I come alive during this time of year. 

I am an introvert and love to keep my circle small. It is important to be to have my alone time; I thrive on my independence, solitude, and time spent with Jesus. Because I am a teacher, I have a passion for influencing others (not just kids). I have a passion for mental health, self-care, and empowering other woman. I want to exude confidence, happiness, and stability everywhere I go and I am here to help you do the same. 

My goal for this blog is to be a place of positivity, inspiration, and creativity. A place where you can go after a long day to feel happy and rejuvenated. Thank you for following along with me on this journey. I really can't tell you how much it means to me.
