Hi, there – I’m Annie!
I love talking with other women about making our lives more the way we want them to be. There are a lot of blogs out there which will show you how to live a perfect life, have a perfect home, and be a perfect parent. Reading my blog should never make you feel that you are not living up to some arbitrary, unattainable standard. I believe that we each have our own unique style and connect with each other through our aspirations, imperfections, and vulnerabilities – so I am willing to share real stories from my own messy effort to create a plenty perfect life.
As a single mom and entrepreneur, I understand living in a real house with real kids, a budget, a dog, and never enough time or storage space. I believe we have a lot to learn from each other and can benefit from sharing ideas for getting more of what we want out of our lives.
Over the last few years, I have built a business as a Style Consultant and offer my clients fine menswear through J. Hilburn Custom Men’s Clothiers.
I meet with men and help select fabrics and styles which flatter them and feel comfortable. Together we build a wardrobe full of outfits which enable them to present their best selves in any situation.
Working with men is very rewarding, but one of the best parts of my job is mentoring my team of Personal Stylists. We are all finding ways to do work we enjoy and make our dreams come true.
— ANNOUNCEMENT —
My business has expanded and I am currently looking for several independent, motivated, entrepreneurial people to take leadership positions on my team. Please contact me if being a J. Hilburn Style Consultant sounds like fun to you!
My experiences have given me a unique perspective on what it really takes to create a home and build a family – and balance that effort with work that is fulfilling and engaging. I have moved 10 times to 7 different states, lived through national disaster and divorce, and have created a new home for my family each time.
I am a gal who can happily swing a hammer, bravely dispose of bugs and pesky varmints, as well as manage a busy family, decorate a beautiful, comfortable home, and make the work I love to do fit into my family life.
I am on a journey to make the next phase of my life what I want it to be – and I am happy to share the ride with you, my friends who are readers and readers who are becoming friends.
Grab a cup of tea and let’s get to know each other a little better! I would love to hear your stories and hope you will enjoy and be inspired reading about my experiences with intentionally styling my life, my home, and my work in a way that makes me happy.
Thanks for stopping by!
All my best, Annie
