I believe in the power of inspiration.  I am a mom, a wife, a pet lover, a girly girl and a lover of all things beautiful. I love a full life, an embellished life, one that includes a little bit of everything.I started MBellished Life as a creative outlet and a place to catalog that which I stumbled upon and caused me to linger, feel or pursue creativity. Since then, MBellished Life has evolved into a lifestyle blog that features original content related to fashionhome decor, entertaining, and lifestyle topics that are meant to inspire you to be your most creative self. My family and friends are a huge inspiration to me so you'll see them mentioned often in my blog. And while they are the true embellishments of my life, I have to admit that I get immense pleasure from the little things in life like buying a perfect handbag, planning a fun dinner for friends, finding thoughtful gifts for loved ones or going on an exotic trip!  My passion for design has been a constant through my various careers as a marketing consultant in Silicon Valley, home furnishings business owner, stylist and interior designer.
I live in Menlo Park, California, with my husband and two energetic and spirited kids.
It is such a privilege to curate this small online space and I am so appreciative of my fabulous readers. I promise to keep it interesting so hope you'll follow along!
