About Candy

Memphis Top Blogger…

Hi, I’m Candy and welcome to Keeping Up With Candy. Every girl wants to look and feel great without breaking the bank and this is what KUWC represents. I would love to share my discoveries with you. I hope you find inspiration here that is both relatable and helpful…whether it be fashion, travel, home, beauty, or food. I created KUWC as a creative outlet to express my love for a beautiful, yet affordable lifestyle.

A little about me: I was born and raised in Memphis, TN. Spent a couple of years in Springfield, OR and commuted between Atlanta, GA and Memphis, TN for about three years. But now I am back home in Memphis for the time being.

I have three kids and am engaged to George (or as I call him, G.Boo). We’ve been engaged for going on four years. I’d been dealing the child custody issues for a couple of years…hence the long engagement. We’re planning a  Summer 2019 wedding!!! Update: My beautiful G.Boo passed away unexpectedly on January 21, 2017.

I started blogging about five years ago under the name ‘Diary of a Southern Belle’. I started this blog while living in Oregon. I was reading a few blogs on a daily basis and wanted to do the same. I knew it was something I would enjoy doing. And I just did it. Due to child custody issues, I unfortunately had to give it up. It pained me tremendously to put on hold something I loved so much. Three years later after (and after winning my battle), I started ‘Keeping Up With Candy’.

I aim to inspire my readers and followers to live happy lives with affordable fashion, first-hand travel, home decorating, delicious recipes,  entertainment ideas, and scoring great deals!

I hope that through Keeping Up With Candy you feel like I’m just one of your girlfriends! Thank you so much for stopping by. I love having you here. So grab a glass of wine and stay a while. XOXO
