Hello and welcome to The Practical Pineapple! This blog is all about you. Though pineapples are a great metaphor for life and represent a motto that I try to live by, “stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside,” I believe that pineapples bring many other things to life. When I think of pineapples, I think about summer, beaches, and pina coladas. I think about fruit salads, smoothies and pineapple upside down cake.
This blog though is yes, all about pineapples, but more importantly, it is about standing tall when you get knocked down and feel like giving up. It is about wearing a crown even when you are in the kitchen with your hair in a knot and juggling multiple things at once that you still feel like a pretty woman. It is about staying sweet when the world changes around you and expects for you to change for them. The Practical Pineapple addresses all of those moments. I offer fashion advice, book reviews, sweet recipes, routines to make you feel awesome, living life on a budget and much more.
I was a recent college grad with one goal. To be awesome at EVERYTHING. Well, life doesn’t work that way does it? It is impossible to be perfect at everything and still stay sane. So when life hands you lemons, you make lemonade, right? NO. You throw the lemons in the trash, slice open a pineapple, and you make PINEAPPLE JUICE. Turn those sour lemons into something sweet, girl!
After college, a spark was ignited inside of me. Feeling overwhelmed with my personal life, I decided to get my priorities in check. I desire to help people. I hold a degree in communications, and through multiple brainstorming sessions, I decided that I want to share my knowledge with the world. I decided to better myself so that I could better other peoples’ lives as well.
That is what The Practical Pineapple is all about. Are you tired of feeling overwhelmed, stressed out, feel like pulling your hair out because you just don’t know what to wear today, cook tomorrow, or what book to read next? I’m here to offer you clarity. My mission is to help you feel content, satisfied, and fulfilled. That you’ll stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside. I’m here for you every step of the way.
