I started this little bloglet a few years ago (2010, to be exact!) and have had SUCH A BLAST posting about all my current lust list obsessions, affordable finds, and favorite products. I cover everything from home decor to beauty to fashion. I’m a hopeless shopping addict and I’ve loved sharing my finds with you.
TheFashionMagpie is my creative outlet. During the day, I run a start-up technology company that I founded with my husband, Mr. Magpie, in 2015. Prior to launching this business, I headed up product for two different edtech non-profits, and prior to that, I was pursuing an advanced degree in the humanities. Talk about a squiggly path to success, eh?
I was born and raised in D.C. alongside my four beautiful and brilliant siblings. I attended Georgetown Visitation, then earned my undergraduate degree at UVA and my graduate degree at Georgetown. In 2010, I married the love of my life after dating him for close to 7 years. We were pretty close to being high school sweethearts–we started dating when I was a second-year in college. About a year after we tied the knot, we hopscotched up to Chicago when my husband was recruited to work at Groupon.
Thank you so much for giving me this energizing creative outlet. Thank you for reading, for listening, for loving.
