Hi, I’m Hailey!
My mission here at The Pretty Priority is to help you make life pretty every day, whether it’s with a new outfit idea, a beauty product I love, or something for the home. I’ve always had a passion for all things pretty, so I hope that I can bring a little bit of that to you!
Other facts about me:
I was born and raised in Texas! I grew up in Mansfield, which is in North Texas about 30 minutes south of Dallas.
I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in Health Science. My original track was Biomedical Science with a goal of going to medical school to be a pediatrician. However, once I got to Biochemistry my junior year, I decided it was NOT for me! I finished out my degree, and then I did an alternative certification program and began teaching elementary in 2011. My goal was always to work with children, and that’s exactly what I’m doing!
I am also a part-time freelance makeup artist. I work for a small business based in Dallas (Tease to Please Hair & Makeup) and I mostly do makeup for wedding parties and brides on their big day! I also have a YouTube channel where I post videos and tutorials, so check that out!
I met my husband, Kyle, in February of 2011, and we got married in June 2016! We have two dogs, Maverick & Bella, and we are rockin’ out the newlywed life! This includes home improvement projects, traveling, trying to stay up past 9:00PM, buying mattresses… adulting… you get it.
I have an Etsy shop called Mum + Arrow. I am a huge DIYer and crafter and I love to build things! This is where I list my latest projects that are for sale.
Things I love:
Books. I can’t resist a good thriller or murder mystery! I am your typical “stay up till 4am reading because I have to know what happens” girl. One of my favorite authors is Gillian Flynn. That girl knows how to write shocking twists!
Animals. I am legitimately obsessed with animals. I want to cuddle them all. Even dinosaurs. ESPECIALLY dinosaurs!!! Favorites: elephants. otters. whales. dogs. lambs. horses. bunnies.
Sci-Fi. I can’t get enough Harry Potter, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Marvel, DC, etc.
Travel. I love going new places and experiencing new things with friends and family. My favorite place I’ve ever been is Antigua so far, and my favorite thing to do while traveling is try new food. I also collect Christmas tree ornaments from all the places I travel!
Guns. One of my favorite things to do is go out to the range. I especially love shooting my shotgun!
Makeup. I think this one is pretty obvious and self explanatory. You’ll be hearing a LOT about all the makeup I love!
Chick-Fil-A. I’ll take a #3 8 count with some BBQ and a sweet tea anytime, anyplace. 🙂
Glitter. I try to leave a little sparkle where ever I go… know what I mean? 🙂
Disney. I know… so basic. But seriously I always dreamed of being a Disney princess!!! Belle is my favorite because she’s feisty and loves to read.
I am so glad you found my little spot on the internet. I hope you find something that inspires you!
Live long and prosper,
