You Bet Your Pierogi is a source for inspiration that covers everything from fashion and beauty to home and travel. I hope to encourage people to find the joy in their everyday life! I consider myself a budget-friendly fashionista and love sharing my discoveries with you guys in not only fashion, but also healthy recipes and fitness strategies, dog mom tips, travel, DIY and more.  You can view the contents of information on this site by category at the top of this page.

Born and raised in the suburbs of Boston,  I’m still hanging close by with my fiancé, Nico and our goldendoodle, Freddy. I like to blend my European roots (pierogi are one of my favorite Polish dishes btw!) with the fast-paced East Coast style and hope you will find inspiration in both fashion and lifestyle.

My Story

I started this website in 2014 and loved every minute of expressing myself through writing. I looked forward to my 30 minute lunch break at work so I could work on the blog; responding to comments, running social media, working with brands, styling looks, shooting content, writing content, finding inspiration, the list went on and on. It made me happy and excited and kept me motivated, however my (then) “real” job did no such thing. I was stressed, unmotivated, overworked and…. it showed. Because I was getting busier and busier at work and my lunch break consisted of driving home to take my new puppy (he’s 2 now!) out for a walk, my blog suffered.

After several months of debating whether or not to quit my full-time job and take the leap to full-time blogger, I decided it was time this year. I had reached a point where I knew if I didn’t take the risk, I might not ever be able to. So with the encouragement of my lovely husband to be, our family and friends, I have decided to run You Bet Your Pierogi full-time. Having the ability to focus solely on my business is like a weight lifted off my shoulders and now I can finally start achieving the things I had always dreamed of doing. The thing about my story is that it is still being written and everyday brings a new adventure or opportunity, that’s what is so exciting and thrilling. So, thank you for following along and for your continued support as I relaunch my blog! Read more about my journey here.
