Questions? Answers!….


Thank you for stopping by! All the Ambience seeks to inspire you to live creating a life with a beautiful ambience. I am confident that if you take care of yourself (self-care!), you will be able to generate good vibes to put positive energy back into the world, and create a world of beautiful ambience.


Who am I?

A twenty-something girly girl who loves to look good + feel good + live good.

Where do I live?

Total suburbia, a bunch of miles west of the beautiful Chicago.

What did I study in college/what am I doing with my life?

I majored in English and minored in Secondary Education. Currently, I teach 9th grade English classes and also keep up with my other hobbies and passions. I know this for sure: I love writing…blogging…fashion… and education…

Do I have any children?

I have a beautiful and intelligent daughter named Alena. She’s going to be a 6th grader in the fall… And yes, I was/am a young mom!

Am I single, dating, married?

DATING… a really sweet, and very tall, guy named David. ♥ My boyfriend is the best and he takes most of my blog photos!

What do I do for fun?

I’m a total girly girl. I love getting dolled up, shopping, getting my nails done, spa trips, going out for breakfast (especially with my daughter)! I also love going out with family or friends to movies, dinners and to Chicago for city nights! I keep active, and I feel like there is pretty much always something going on…

When I have “me time” I love relaxing with a glass of moscato and watching a movie, or reading a great book (see what I’m currently reading on Goodreads)!
