I was born and raised in the beautiful beaches of Monterey Peninsula and am currently residing in Southern California.  During the day I work as a career counselor/young adult advocate for an awesome non-profit company where I help young adults meet their educational goals and connect them to a variety of job opportunities in the IE.

I grew up with a very mature palette, being able to cook delicious somethings out of nothing, and vegetarian at that! On top of that I always very adventurous with my fashion.  Being able to travel to Italy in high school helped and my mother’s vintage pieces have helped broaden my fashion senses. My seven favorite fashion essentials are prints, studs, neutrals, denim, leather, florals and lace.  My hope is to be able to bring you food ideas and fashion tips to try out, please feel free to share your ideas.  Please contact me at bluelillypad7@gmail.com

Blue Lilly Pad Blog is a journey into my three loves: fashion, vegetarian cuisine and letters to encourage you! All three of my gifts and passion all collaborated in one.

Enjoy everything positive and beautiful!
