I’m Kellie, a Virginia girl who lives right outside of Washington D.C.

…I idolize Audrey Hepburn… obsessively watch The West Wing… have degrees in political science & secondary education… had youthful dreams of Broadway stardom but now serenade my dog… went to Egypt on my honeymoon… have a crush on Jon Bon Jovi… love studying the First Ladies & named my dog after Abigail Adams…


A “yuppie” is a term coined in the 1980’s for a young urban professional. This blog chronicles not only the stylish & creative things that I love, but also my life. My dad would always tease me that I lived in “yuppie-ville”,  inspiring

I’d love to hear from you!

    I have been trying to find local (NOVA area) fashion or beauty bloggers lately and I stumbled across yours! I hope you don’t mind that I totally internet stalked you and realized that we have a ton in common. 🙂 I am also a teacher (just switched careers after working in the beauty industry for many years). I work as a middle school English/Sped teacher in Virginia and maintain a wedding makeup biz on the side. Anyway, just wanted to say I adore your blog and glad to “meet” someone like me! Yay! 🙂

    I just found your blog via SITS, and I’m so glad I did! We have a lot in common. I love reading about first ladies – especially Jackie O. I just finished a book called “Upstairs at the White House” and loved learning about all of the first ladies – from Eleanor to Mrs. Nixon. I’m a Audrey Hepburn fan and love Paris. Lastly I’m a retired high school teacher and can empathize with you- especially these last weeks of school – I loved it and wouldn’t have traded a day for anything.

      I’m going to have to check that book out! Sounds right up my alley. And yes, the last weeks of school are the worst.
