About me

Welcome Dahlings, I’m so happy you’ve taken the time to drop by my circus. I started this blog because I hope to inspire my fellow dahls with tips on how to be happy, healthy & fabulous! There will be fashion, beauty & travel tips from years in the entertainment industry. Everything from planning a party to trying to get pregnant…you’ll find it right here! We’ll talk about my “letter to God” to find my soul-mate, getting married in just 6 months, moving across the country from Nashville, Tennessee to Orange County, California and combining our country-coastal lifestyles together. I come from a big Italian family so there will be food & lots of it! I’ll share my Dahlicious recipes I learned how to make while being a contestant on MasterChef…and some family recipes that I will most likely be disowned for sharing ;) Please leave me any questions, comments or concerns…I really appreciate all your sweet support! I’m looking forward to getting to know all my dahls & making some new friends!
