I live and work in the sunny, beachy, and beautiful Tampa Bay area. By day, I take on the role of a technology instructor. By night, I serve as a writer and freelance social media specialist. The remainder of the time you can be sure to find me shopping for a great new fashion find or amazing beauty buy. I’m a girl on a regular budget; I don’t think you have to break the bank to look and feel like a million bucks. Hopefully, some of my bargain shopping and inspiration can be of service to you. If you’re new to Ruffles & Truffles, you can expect to see posts about my personal style, beauty products I love, a generous smattering of recipes and food, and other goodies. My husband and I moved into a new home last year, and I’m in the process of decorating and DIYing to my heart’s content to make it into our perfect little space.
