I’m Felicia — your typical millennial-first-time-home-buyer who didn’t know what the fluff I got into when my first tax payment hit my escrow account. I’ve always had a passion for decor like most. I also have always been broke. So my DIY, decor-on-a-budget was born out of necessity and creativity! After desiring to share my home ideas for years, I finally took the plunge and began hellohomegirl.com. Many of my projects are applicable to both homeowners and renters alike. (We all deserve a beautiful yet affordable space!)
I live with my longtime partner, and together, we tackle renovation projects that upgrade our house into our home in Dallas, TX. I affectionately refer to him as The Honey. He makes brief cameos as he’s camera/blog shy! Often, I tackle projects by myself as well.
In March 2020, I was fortunate to be featured in the online magazine ShoutOut DFW where I discussed DIYing my way through the grief of losing my mother.
Some fun facts about me:
- I’m an art nerd. Visiting museums is my jam.
- I’m an adventurous eater. If I can’t pronounce it, I want to eat it.
- I prefer secondhand furniture over brand new. It feels better in my spirit.
- My favorite vacation spot is Paris, with Denali Nat’l Park in an extremely close second.
- Travel, shopping, and eating are my favorite hobbies. Go figure!
