Our Philosophy


Hi Friends, and welcome to our little slice of heaven!  We are entrepreneurs, wives, mothers, and believers in the art of working hard, loving harder, and finding balance in everyday life.  We believe that life should be lived beautifully at any stage in life, and can be refined on any budget.  We whole-heartedly believe that refinement is not just reserved for the rich, but can be accessible to anyone passionate enough to seek it out for themselves.  We constantly seek to learn from every experience, stay open to new ideas, and live every day with joyful purpose.  The French call this “l’art de vivre”, or the art of living well.

Through our own education, experience, and passions we hope to inspire you in the art of living well.  Whether you’re looking for inspiration on styling your home to on a conservative budget, seeking the best ways to care for your skin, searching for a great pair of shoes, hunting for recipes for healthier fare, or tracking down classy, doable entertaining ideas, you’ll find it all here at The Refined Lifestyle.
