Congratulations!! You made it to my blog! I bet you couldn’t be more excited if you tried. This really is a good day for you. My name is Taylor, and I am so happy you are here.
Welcome to Blonde & Ambitious: Beauty, Fashion & Lifestyle. The main purpose of this blog is to help you look and feel your best, in what you wear, what makeup you put on, and how your home feels, so, ya welcome. I obviously love all things fashion and beauty, and I want to help you love them, too! Everyone should feel their best every day (plus purple lipstick is just fun, you know?). Let’s discover the best and most wearable trends together. The lifestyle side of B&A comes out in marriage advice, travel tips & tricks and healthy habits. This is a jack-of-all-trades kind of situation.
I am a 23-year-old college graduate, with a degree in Biochemistry (I know — what??). Originally, I was going to work in cosmetic chemistry, developing makeup. I am a professional makeup artist here in St. Louis. I have amazing clients and am kept constantly busy with all kinds of projects. I was featured on KMOV Channel 12 this past October for my halloween makeup. I work on brides, high school seniors, newly engaged ladies and more. Makeup is my passion and you will definitely see it shine through here on my site. Visit this page to see my services & prices if you’re interested in booking me for a service!
I married the love of my life, Adam, on April 9th, 2016. I am the luckiest human in the entire world. He is endlessly patient, kind and funny. I definitely married up. We are expecting our first baby July 2019!
Adam and I are also fur parents to our sweet Isabel (a tortiseshell kitten we adopted on Valentine’s Day of 2017) and Chester (a little orange & white tom cat who basically adopted us when we found him sick and injured outside of our apartment in August 2017) and Archer (our mix breed pup adopted in September 2018). The cats are little BFFs, and I wouldn’t have it any other way (#catladyforlife) & Archer fits in nicely and really rounds us out as a family. He’s energetic and BIG. At six months old, he’s over 50lbs. We can’t wait to see what this beast grows up to weigh! I wouldn’t say he and the cats are BEST friends but everyone gets along and we all enjoy each other’s company. 🙂
I am an avid reader, clean freak and a completely terrible cook. I have too many lipsticks and too many shoes but I think that’s okay.
I have a feeling we are going to be friends, so don’t be a stranger. Introduce yourself in the comment section below! I love hearing from my readers. I’m excited to share in this journey with you!
