Lauren: Hello! Thanks so much for visiting Salt & Pippa; I hope your time here adds a pinch of happy and a dash of inspiration to your day. As for a bit about me, I spent my time at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities studying interior design and a few years after that working for high end residential firms in the area. So as you might surmise, the blog does focus on that topic from time to time. But variety is the spice (Salt & Pippa, if you will) of life, and I also love fashion, food, travel, dance, the Green Bay Packers and new things in general. So spice up your week, and check back on the regular for some lifestyle inspiration. For a more detailed outline of what you can expect to see on the blog, please take a gander at the calendar.
Pippa: Meet Pippa. She’s the pretty princess (USA version) who puts the ‘Pippa’ in Salt & Pippa. Ok, actually she’s my cute canine – a chocolate lab mix – that I adopted a couple of years back. She may not be a quote on quote ‘princess’, but I tell her she is anyways. Her pastimes include napping, chasing squirrels and soliciting tummy rubs from anyone who is willing. Oh, and she and I are currently working on becoming a therapy team. Once she is trained, we plan on volunteering at nursing homes, hospitals, etc. I think that Ms. Middleton (UK version) would be proud of her namesake!
