Hello and welcome to A Fresh Coat! There’s a lot of ways a “fresh coat” can bring you a little bit of happiness. A fresh coat of nail polish can make you feel put together, even on those ponytail kind of days. A fresh coat of paint can transform a room from a boring white to a colorful oasis (or at least a safe shade of beige if that’s what you’re after!). The point is, there’s a lot of times in your life when you want to change and it doesn’t have to be too complicated or expensive to achieve those goals. Hopefully my blog can show you how to achieve that new, fresh feeling whether it be through a new beauty routine or an inexpensive way to improve your home. I’ll also share recipes, travel adventures and other ideas as they come to me!
Ten years in the magazine business has taught me a lot about the simple things that can put a smile on your face and make your day go by a little bit more smoothly. My articles have appeared in Woman’s Day, Ty Pennington at Home, Philadelphia magazine, Elle Decor, DC Magazine, Virginia Bride, Boston magazine, Remodeling & Makeovers and more. After stints in NJ, Philly and NYC I’ve finally settled in Washington, DC, our nation’s capital and have been a happy resident for five years. I plan on finding all the fun home decor and fashion finds in the District and around the globe! I hope you will come on this journey with me and check in often!
