About Candy

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
