about me

Welcome to my blog, texasweettea! I'm so happy you're here!

I'm a recently married gal who loves to share my way of life to help others. Whether you're in search of advice on relationships, organization, vegan meals, fashion, DIY, or anything else you're in the right place.

Frequently Asked Questions

What you need to know...

I was originally born in Scotland, but I grew up in Houston, Texas. Somehow, I ended up attending school at the University of Alabama and majoring in Public Relations. I was also a Kappa Alpha Theta (#tlam). 

I managed to adopt two pets while away at the University of Alabama. My 20lb cat, Denny, and my 5lb Chihuahua/Terrier mix, Peanut. Yes, you read that right. No, it's not a typo.

I got married to my high school sweetheart in October 2020. From online dating to long-distance, we've done it all. I waited 6.5 years to finally get to be his wife, but it has all been worth it! 

Why Texasweettea?

Texasweettea began in January 2014 because I'm a person who always feels the need to be creative. I found myself envious of people with blogs and I finally decided to start one for myself. I love having an outlet where I can share my favorite recipes, fashion inspiration, and everyday life. When I'm not blogging, you can find me trying out new recipes, organizing my planner, or trying to pet every single dog I see.

I'm sure you're wondering about the name though. Texasweettea? Well, believe it or not, I used to be obsessed with being 'preppy'. And I was all about embracing southern culture. So basically, it's a play on words.
Texas + sweetie = texasweettea. 
I skipped out on having two of the letter 's' because it spells quite the unfortunate word. And between you and me, I don't even really like sweet tea too much. Shocking, right? But the name just sort of stuck with me and I haven't looked back!

You're a vegan, right?

Yes, I am! As of January 1, 2017, I am a plant-based princess. It has been one of the easiest decisions I have ever made regarding my health, the welfare of animals, and also the environment! I have a whole lot of advice for people who want to make the switch (or even if you're just curious)! I'm very open about my diet and lifestyle, so don't be afraid to talk to me if you have something you'd like to share! Also, check out my foodie Instagram @peepmyplants!

If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email or if you're shy, leave me an ask as an anon on Tumblr. I'll be sure to help you out as quickly and as best as I can!
