Tell us more about you and your blog

Southern Chick Journal is a lifestyle blog based in New Orleans featuring Southern baby, travel, advice, fun giveaways, inspiration and so much more! The blog was created in honor of my “Southern Chick” baby girl arriving in June. It’s grown from being solely about my adventure to first-time parenthood to a lifestyle blog for anyone looking for inspiration with a Southern twist!
