Who am I?

Hi, I am Haleigh and welcome to my little corner of the blog world. I have a passion for traveling and exploring other cultures. You should know that I adore fashion and I adore food so I try to moderate both, a little vegetables to look fabulous in my skinny jeans and that sort of thing. I want to use this blog as my creative center to talk freely and write about what I please, whether it be fashion, baking, or traveling.

A little more about my past…. I met my Swedish husband at the University of Oklahoma in 2006. After we got engaged, I moved to Sweden in 2007 so that we could be together while he finished graduate school. While living abroad, I learned more about myself than I ever thought was possible. I would recommend living in another country to any one.. it really brings a sense of peace and pleasure with the world and with yourself. I recently moved to the Charlotte, NC area and will be studying Communications and Journalism in the near future.
