A Little About Me...
Hi! I’m Vera – the mom behind Lady and the Blog. I’m so thankful you want to get to know a bit more about me. I was born in NYC and raised in Queens. The same goes for my husband, Bill. We married in 2001 and moved out to Long Island after having our second child together. Now, with three kids and a brand new rescue pup, we can truly say that time FLIES when you’re having fun. Lady and the Blog is actually not my first website. I started blogging with a celebrity gossip site called “I’m Not Obsessed” which I started it in 2005. At one point, we had 7 employees under our belt just to help keep it afloat. It was a juggernaut and way too much for one person to handle. I slowly shifted into the mom/fashion space in 2009 and haven’t looked back since. We closed “I’m Not Obsessed” a few years ago and I don’t miss it. Is that mean to say? Celebrity gossip ruled my life and I am so grateful that I am not attached to that neverending spinning wheel anymore. Nowadays, I focus on food, fashion, and family. That’s exactly where I want to be. My drive on this website is to create a space for women to visit where they can get advice to help them live a stylish life without the stress. I love clothes. I love to host parties for my friends. I even love to decorate (and redecorate) my home whenever I find the inspiration. But I want to do it with EASE and without breaking the bank. This site is for the everyday woman who wants to still stay on trend and feel good about herself without constantly feeling like she has to play catchup with the rest of the world. Easy BREEZY.
