Ariana and mommy

Hello, beautiful! You are brimming with radiance and light. Thank you for stopping by. Let's pop the vino and start the introductions, shall we?

I'm a multi-tasker extraordinaire---wife, mother and career woman. But in the eyes of my five-year-old, I'm 1/2 unicorn, 1/4 mermaid and 1/4 fairy. The Gospel of Beauty is more than just a style, travel, home decorating or beauty blog, it's a love letter to my bursting-with-curiosity daughter, Ariana Grace. Every post is meant to teach her the important and finer things in life, like how to find happiness, how to live healthy, how to decorate her room like Joanna Gaines, how to travel like a Parisian and how to have breakfast at Tiffany's ala Audrey Hepburn.
