The word “ShuGar” is not misspelled. It’s our nickname. It’s a combination of the first three letters of my hub’s last name and the first three letters of my last name. You pronounce it like “sugar” but it’s spelled S-H-U-G-A-R. We officially began using our nickname for our Beatles-inspired wedding with the theme “All You Need is ShuGar Love.”
I am a writer at my core. I’ve been writing on and off since I was a little one. When I decided to create my blog, I was thinking about what has inspired me to finally make my writing public. I immediately thought of Mr. ShuGar’s love and our marriage. Because of his support, I felt the confidence to write from my heart. Therefore, I decided to use similar colors, fonts, and theme from our wedding for my blog.
I blog about the Heart and all there is to Love. My blog is a snapshot of my heart, inspired by the “ShuGar Love” in my life. It explores my love for art, photography, The Beatles, traveling, indie films, dance, books, food, LA, fashion, beauty, family, marriage, baby, and, most importantly, love. I invite all to share in the love.
Now, a glimpse into my ShuGar heart.
I adore my daddy, mama & sister. Mr. ShuGar and our ShuGar baby bring me rainbows to my life every day. I don’t like chocolate, but I have a weakness for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups & Snickers. I enjoy wearing Mr. ShuGar’s socks after a long day at work. Our ShuGar Boy is our physical reminder that miracles and unconditional love do exist. I still believe in happily ever after.
My closest girlies are gifts in my life. I cherish their inside and outside beauty.
If I weren’t in education, I would be a dancer, stylist and writer. My personal style can be defined as eclectic and whimsical. I adore color and jump at the chance of mixing patterns in fashion and decor. I am a lover of all things romantic and vintage, but with a twist of modern.
I can watch The Office, I Love Lucy, Amelie, Project Runway, Shopgirl and Annie Hall over and over again. Turquoise rocks my world. I am seriously addicted to traveling. A woman can never have enough shoes, necklaces, earrings, purses and rings. The Beatles are everything. I enjoy discovering the hidden gems in Los Angeles. My definition of a perfect date is going to a museum, eating dinner and drinking some wine at any of L.A.’s trendy restaurants, followed by watching an indie flick at one of our fave movie theaters. I can eat pasta and ramen for every dinner. I love being in love.
