A Poke of Pretty is a source of inspiration for those interested in fashion, beauty, travel and all things pretty.


I started A Poke of Pretty in 2014 during my sophomoreΒ year of college. I always knew I wanted something to call my own. After creating a fake websiteΒ in a class I took,Β I realized how much fun I had. It no longer felt like an assignment but rather a way to express my creativity and enjoy myself. I pushed even further and taught myself basic HTML and the Adobe Suite.

Two years later, A Poke of Pretty continues to grow and change. With this blog, I hope to show you everything I chat to my friends about. My favorite beauty products, the latest fashion trends, and stories from my travels.
