About

Hey Y'all!  I'm Laura, a native to Western NC, and still living in the small town where I grew up.  I am 37 and my age doesn't bother me at all....at least not yet!  Mostly because of all the things I have learned in my years have shaped me into the woman I am today.  That, and my love for Botox and Restylane doesn't hurt either. Ha!

I love to shop for clothes, shoes and bags; but I am cost conscious.  I don't think I have ever paid more than $40 for a pair of jeans.  I love a good bargain and shop sales the vast majority of the time!  I just don't think you have to spend a fortune to look like a million bucks.  I consider my style to be feminine and classic, think Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O'. I tend to invest in items that I think will be around for a long time and I will get a lot of wear out of too.  

I also love to cook and try new recipes and cooking gadgets.  It is so therapeutic to get in the kitchen and cook up a great tasting meal for my family.  And I especially love to bake....chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes anyone?  In my spare time, you will find me reading a good book or listening to great music, mostly country, because I love the lyrics and stories intertwined.  I also love to watch a great movie, but nothing scary.  I am a wimp!

I started this blog as a way to connect with others that enjoy similar things and can't wait to get to know you all.  Thank you so much for checking out Illuminate; I hope you enjoy the content and stick around for a while!
