Hi! My name is Jennifer Arrigo, I am 26 years old, and I have an amazing husband, Tony. We got married on September 23, 2013 by a double proxy marriage. Double proxy is when both people cannot attend (He lived in Germany and I lived in Virginia), so lawyers stand in for you and marry you. Obviously not the most romantic story, but we knew we loved each other, and I wanted to move to Germany to be with him. Anyway, we got married after only dating for about 5 months. I met his sister in college in TN years prior, and that’s how I ended up meeting Tony. We never talked until 2013 though, online, when he was in Germany. I guess you could say it was meant to be? 🙂
We currently live in Charlotte, North Carolina. We have no idea where this life is going to take us, so who knows where we will end up! We moved from Germany in 2016 to Alabama, and now North Carolina in 2017, and still have the travel bug in us. Eventually we want to settle down, but for now, there is too much to see and explore out there!
We have a pug named Ellie, and a coon hound named Boone. I adopted Ellie and brought her along with me when I married Tony, and we adopted Boone when we moved to Alabama.
I started the switch to a green lifestyle when I lived in Germany. I have always been the drug store makeup kind of girl. I literally wouldn’t buy my makeup anywhere else. I would stick with the same foundation, concealer, blush etc, even if it didn’t match my skin tone. And I would continue to repurchase them! Clearly I’ve learned a lot since then, and I’ve done my research. I switched to wearing cleaner products in makeup and skincare, because it makes me feel good. There are so many chemicals and scary ingredients that go into beauty items these days, and it just started to freak me out! I watched a million YouTube videos on organic beauty tutorials and followed different bloggers and soon had to make the complete switch over. I’ve gotta say, I do feel pretty darn good now that I know what’s going on my skin!
We recently had our first baby, Jack, on April 20, 2017 and we couldn’t be more excited! If you have any tips or tricks, I’d be happy to hear about them! I will be sharing lots of baby things on this blog as well so I hope you enjoy!
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy what you see!
