The Healthy Couture was derived from my son, my two daughters, and my passion for food, fashion and fun. I have always had a passion for fashion but was never able to share that passion with the world due to working long hours. I am now a stay at home mom and thought that now is the perfect time to turn my hobby into a blog and share it with everyone.
My son, Anthony, is an avid fitness buff who went from scrawny to fit. After constantly being told how skinny he was, he decided to read and figure out how he could gain both weight and muscle.
My oldest daughter, Courtney, is a Junior at Spelman College. Courtney has loved fashion since she was old enough to dress herself. She learned from an early age how to shop on a budget and still look like a million dollars. After graduating from high school and moving to Atlanta, GA for college, Courtney really came into her own as far as her fashion. She also, like me, has struggled with her weight and eating healthy. Courtney is excited to contribute to this blog and share her weight loss journey to help motivate other college students who may be facing the same challenges.
My youngest daughter, Madison (“Maddie”), is a 13 year old fashionista. Because I worked long hours, I never saw how Madison dressed for school. After becoming a stay at home mom and noticing that she was wearing the same thing (leggings and a Pink t-shirt), every day, I decided it was time for a change. Little did I know that I was about to create a monster. After our shopping trip to change her wardrobe, she was complimented on a daily basis by her teachers and her passion for fashion emerged. Through Madison’s “Teen Corner” you will get a glimpse of Maddie’s fashion and trending teen styles.
As a young girl, I always loved fashion. I remember going to the resale shops to shop for clothes in high school. I always knew how to be fabulous on a budget. My love for fashion continued to grow. I developed a love for high end designer fashions. Particularly, Chanel and Hermes. I am constantly taking note of the latest fashions.
After struggling with my weight for years, I finally decided to live a healthier life in January 2014 and lost 61 pounds. After a major life change in September 2015, I have managed to gain most of the weight back. This blog will document my journey to a healthier and more fabulous me.
