My Versatile Style - A Midwest Life and Style Blog

I’ve indulged in all things fashion, beauty and lifestyle for as long as I can remember. As a kid, I’d spend hours a day in front of the mirror attempting to replicate looks from Seventeen Magazine with my mom’s Mary Kay makeup. There’s just something about nailing a new trend or discovering a brilliant new brand that’s always set my soul on fire. The only thing that’s ever seemed to thrill me more is sharing my finds with others. So I guess it was sort of inevitable that this midwest life and style blog was born.

While I try to share as much of my life as I can on social media (I’m on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter), there’s a lot about me you might not know! So here are some fun facts:

  1. My name’s Michelle, but I go by Meach. My mom gave me that nickname as a kid and it just stuck.
  2. I graduated from Ohio State with a BS in Communication and a minor in Media Production. I originally set out to work on-air as a reporter, but I changed course after college for a variety of reasons.
  3. Nothing motivates me more than putting a trip on the calendar. I love meeting new people and exploring new places!
  4. In addition to blogging I work full time as a marketing contractor. I find genuine fulfillment in helping businesses grow, especially small businesses!
  5. I’m a very visual person, and I love all things creative – photography, decor, design, etc.
  6. I’ve been to more Hanson concerts than any other artist/band. My sister and I grew up being super fans! In second place: Taylor Swift.
  7. I’m the youngest of 4, and I’ve been an aunt since age 3.
  8. I have the most wonderful and supportive Instagram husband, Dane (pictured above). We’ve been together since 2004 (LOL that sounds like a million years ago)!
  9. My lifelong best friend’s name is also Michelle, and I had 4 Amanda’s in my wedding (one being my sister). Sort of weird, right?
  10.  My celebrity girl crushes are Kelly Ripa and Jennifer Lopez. I think they’re both beautiful and brilliant!

If there’s something else you want to know, please don’t hesitate to ask. You’ll learn very quickly, if you haven’t already, that I love chatting and helping. Whether you’re from Cleveland or elsewhere, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for following along.
