Tell our readers about yourself and your blog
I started this blog as a college course assignment in 2014 during my senior year. I’ve since graduated with a Bachelors degree in Marketing, became a Florida resident, got my first post-grad job in my field with a NHL team, welcomed two sweet pups into my little family and got engaged to my other half since then! SaraMagnolia.com serves as my creative outlet to share my travels and inspiration on fashion, beauty, and home decor.
