Hi all! My name is Whitney and I am the creator of Lulu & Bou. I've wanted to start a blog for awhile now but life always seemed to happen so here I am finally joining the blogosphere. Why now? you might ask. Well, after having my son in February, I felt like I needed an outlet to stay creative and to have a bit of my own identity besides being a mom, which I LOVE!
The focus of Lulu & Bou is to help other moms and women out there with helpful links and fun ideas who might not have the time to research or explore a ton of options. I am a research nut when it comes to style, travel and decor so I am so excited to share my favorites with all of you.
Q & A with WHITNEY:
How old are you? I'm 28.
How tall are you? I'm 5'7".
Favorite holiday? Definitely Christmas. My grandmother was basically Mrs. Claus so Christmas has so many fond memories. Plus I LOVE the snow.
Favorite movie? It's a tie between "Ever After" and "A Walk to Remember." Both are to die for but definitely bring tissues for "A Walk to Remember." I ugly cry every time. LOL
Favorite flower? Sunflower for looks but plumeria for smell.
Where did you go to high school? Pacific Grove High School, Pacific Grove CA. I was a cheerleader but total nerd at heart.
Where did you go to college and what was your major? Point Loma Nazarene University, San Diego CA. I graduated Magna Cum Lade with a B.A. in Social Work.
How did you and your husband meet? We are high school sweethearts! I was a freshman and he was a junior. We started dating the summer after my freshman year and got married in 2015.
Do you have kids? Yes! I had my son, Brae, in February 2021. He is the happiest, sweetest little guy!
Favorite place you have traveled? This is tough but probably a tie between Bora Bora, Tahiti, for the relaxation and sun, and Venice, Italy, especially in the rain - I find all of the small streets and shops throughout the city maze to be so romantic and quaint.
Favorite workout? Bikram yoga and spin. They both kick my butt which I always need!
Favorite skincare brand? Tula. I love their clean and invigorating ingredients. From cleanser and moisturizers to toners and brighteners, EVERYTHING is my favorite!
Favorite hair tool? Dyson hair dryer. It is definitely an investment but this thing is AMAZING! I have lioness status hair most of the time and this tool helps tame the mane every time.
How do you rest/reset? My ultimate reset is to get my favorite coffee and a pedicure and then go home and have a nice long bath with a facial mask. I feel like a whole new woman!
