Here’s My Story.

Hi, I’m Heather! A small town Texas girl, I grew up loving horses, high school football and books. Oh, books. It’s quite possible I loved reading more than people as a kid (ask my little sister…I ignored her for hours to catch up with Nancy Drew). In fact, it was through reading that I discovered fashion – BSC’s Claudia was my style icon in 4th grade. If you’re the type who likes to snoop, you might be interested in watching my First Time video. Lots of (not so) juicy facts there about my younger days!

Now days, I’m married to The Boy, who is pretty much the coolest person I know. We have two fat kitties that like to sleep, eat and cause general destruction to the house. I love that my job lets me be creative – and also involves lots of shopping, making and coffee-ing.

About How to be Fancy

I started blogging as an extension of my etsy shop around 2008. It was just a little personal site where I explored design of the fashion, art and interior variety.

In 2010, I created How to be Fancy as a place to chatter on about my blossoming obsession with beauty and fashion. I wanted How to be Fancy to be more than just a place for me to upload my thoughts – I really wanted to make a space where other equally smitten beauty lovers could come and have a chat. In 2011, when I began making YouTube videos, I realized what an incredible conversation starter they were. Since then, I’ve been addicted to finding new things that we can talk about!

The Fancy community (YOU!) is so special to me – I wrote this post about what I think is most important about the things we share. It’d mean the world if you took a peek!
