Hello!  Welcome to For the frill of it!  I’m Cristen – a small town mama that loves to blog about the people, places and things that inspire me.  I’m married to Aaron, and we live in Northern California with our two girls, Kendall (4) and Charlotte (7), our boxer Laila, and our kitty Winnie.  You may recognize me from my other blog, The Naptime Reviewer, where I offer reviews, life tips and more.

Meet the Family

At For the frill of it! you can look forward to reading about the following topics:

House | Find home decor inspiration, learn some new DIY tricks, and discover great products.

Travel | I have a passion for travel and find inspiration from the places I’ve been, and even places I haven’t been.  My travels inspire my blog posts, my style and even the way I decorate my house.

Style | I share everything from beauty products and tips to style for the whole family.

Life | Let’s face it.  Adulting is hard!  My hopes are not only to provide you with stories you can (hopefully) relate to, but to learn more about your stories, as well.  I love reading your comments and engaging with you all, so don’t be shy about commenting.  I will also be sharing fun party planning ideas, recipes, products I adore, and more.

You can often find me posting about the above topics on my Instagram page (instagram.com/cristencasados).
