About mary

In every sense of the word, I am a born adventurer - exploring enticing places and enchanting topics that pique my intrinsic interests, unveiling their natural allure. Most of my life experience, past and present, is documented on camera or etched in my memory. I’m here to spread the love and make your day a little brighter with the heartening anecdotes and hilarious lessons I’ve learned along the way.

My name is Mary Van Hiel and I started this blog to share my affection for travel, style, food, beauty, and design. Spending the majority of my career cultivating young minds as an elementary school teacher, I’m now moving beyond the classroom and sharing my passions with the world. From essential fashion to easy gourmet; must-have exploits to joyful collecting; to the inherent charm within it all - I’m here to dish on all things delicious and good.
