Succulents & Stilettos
An.Eye.For...Decor & More

Let​​​​'s get to it.....about the blog & the business
Succulents & Stilettos is a lifestyle blog focusing on inspiring, motivating and guiding you on all the latest and greatest in clothing, home decor, fitness and of course family! succulentsandstilettos  will also have some available services  for styling and home decor. 

Styling - Fun, creative ways to style clothing, whether it's dressing up or down, I'm here for you! 

Home Decor - Simple and budget friendly ways to add some flare to your home, maybe its a mantel update for the holidays or filling an empty space within the home, I'm here to add the finishing touches! 

Fitness - This is what gets me through the day, I go to the gym every morning (it's my therapy).  One of the many things that motivates me to do this is having fun workout attire, I love fun quotes, color and confidence (and a love for addidas)! 

Family - What can I say they are my everything and we are so imperfectly perfect so why not blog about it, everyone needs a little crazy added to their life!  Fun road trips, wild kiddo stories and any fun mom tips will be blogged about (and a cyber cocktail when needed). 

Cheers,
Kim
