About Trish

I never thought I would be a blogger. I was quiet, shy, and sort of a wallflower. But here I am! The Trish List is a lifestyle blog based in the Finger Lakes of New York. I get asked often for that reason if I like wine. Uhhhmmmm Duh?! 

My name is Trish and you have stumbled upon my blog which I fondly refer to as the zen between the chaos

I have consistently struggled on a focus for this space. I love showing up and sharing stories with each of you, but I never really thought about what the purpose of this space is. Recently, after one hot mess after another, I realized something... 

The zen between the chaos is my life. I am just a girl trying to navigate life as a new mom while trying not to lose herself in the process. 

Everyday I feel like I am going through a metamorphosis, discovering a new layer to myself as I grow my wings and take flight into the next adventure. 

You can expect life posts which may or may not be a little nuts, fashion posts, where I'm trying to keep breast milk and spit up off my clean shirt, and all things wellness. I sort of forget I am a certified yoga teacher at this point.

I started this blog back in 2014 when I was a single 30 year old living off of anything I could get for free. It was either that or not eat for a week. I applied for every freebie, sample, coupon, party package, etc. out there. This is how the blog was born. I was posting reviews of all of my free stuff once a week on another page that no longer exists. I decided early on while blogging that I wanted to write about more than just products I got free in the mail.

Today I am 35, been married for almost 2 years, have 2 fur babies (Rick and Grace), and just gave birth in April 2018 to my first child who we refer to as Baby Bloob. Oh and he was born 5 weeks early at a cool 6lbs 2oz. My giant preemie. I am the complete lifestyle package, don't ya think?

My Dreams

One of the topics I am writing a lot about lately are my life long dreams. When I was in my early 20's I had a kanji symbol for 'dream' tattooed on my right foot. I thought long and hard about this before putting something so permanent there. 

Today it reminds me that I had big dreams and somehow along the way I got off track. That's the best thing about life. You can get back on track anytime  you choose. It took me a few years of being broke, alone, and just plain miserable to realize all I had to do was make different choices.

A lot of those dreams include travel and self discovery. I am always growing and evolving myself. This is something I want to pass on to my son. I want him to see the world we live in, in an unbiased eye. I want him to discover it for him and not for what others tell him it should be like.

Honest and Raw

You may wonder what to expect here on this page, and honestly I wonder too. I will tell you whatever it is, it is something I believe in. You will see the good, the bad, and maybe the ugly at times. I enjoy having a pretty space to look at, but I also know I can't offer pretty styled photos of myself everyday (this is why I got a letter board. I can style that in 5 minutes!).

So.. Welcome!

If you're still here, bless your heart. I applaud you. I can't wait to share this journey with all of you. Whether it be life stories, fashion type posts, or some kind of weird yoga pose, I will be here 3 days a week for your reading pleasure!
