Hi there, welcome to Life Happens!
I’m Stephanie Lauretta AKA Lee from Beauty By Lee. I started my amazing blogging career as a Makeup Artist with huge hair and even bigger dreams. While a lot of my dreams came true like being in beauty campaigns, magazines, in store makeup ads, and getting to travel around the world for work. I’ve visited Cannes, Paris, South of France, Aspen…and the Golden Globes where Sarah Jessica Parker said I was beautiful-Ahh see dreams! Makeup was just my creative outlet which led to so much. I’m grateful but I’ve evolved.
I’m a full time mama with three kiddos and a little fluffy dog named Gigi. I’m a wife to my Best friend and husband Vincent. I always envisioned just two children, a boy and girl, a move in ready home and a big ole backyard with amenities. Ha! Well “Life Happens” they said and boy does it.
Finding out I would be a mama of two under two was never on my wish list, or that I would live through renovations that I would be tackling with my Husband and family because we are just young adults who definitely do not have it like that. The best part is that I absolutely did not move into a backyard with amenities however it is pretty big but ugly! Surprisingly to some of you I have a green thumb and really love seeing things grow.
Life definitely happened and I am taking you all along for the ride. Since moving I have documented my walk through of this home we decided on purchasing and all its glory or not. There is the good and bad of home renovations and what I have learned. Mom life and home life with my husband all while still being active in the beauty industry.
I started out with a passion for beauty and found myself in love with whats beautiful in life and love. Proper skincare is still very important to me so I’ll never forget to leave tips and tricks for you.
Thanks for stopping by, this mama loves a little adult conversations especially after long days a chatting it up with the little ones.
