About Jenn


I'm Jenn, how are ya?

When I click on "about me" tabs I'm usually looking to see if we should have been friends all along. 

So here's the goods: Jenn Rych, 38, Buffalo, NY, I have 3 boys - 14, 11, and 9.
My husband, who you may see me mention here and there, is Matt.

If you're also wondering if I have pets, I do - 2 cats, a dog, and a mess of fish - and btw, you are my people. Gimme all the kittens and puppies!

Once upon a time (back in 2011) this blog was a hub for an online book club. In 2020, it became a place to chronicle the weirdness of life and a personal writing journey. And eventually it morphed into a lifestyle blog, heavy on the clothes and books.

And now? Well in 2023, it's become my place to share my process of moving my life to a more intentional, slow, more sustainable life. My goals are to embrace and share things that are easy, economical, or environmental (ideally, all three at the same time!) without compromising who I am and what I love. Including a love of beautiful, everyday luxuries.

I'm stumbling my way through, but I'd love to have you follow along! I'm focusing on posting things about thrift shopping and secondhand fashion, gardening and flowers, home making, and more. I also love to sprinkle in little local moments from all the beauty and fun we have here in Buffalo!
As a full-on boy mom, I tend to over-do the girliness and flowers (for balance?), but I think that probably would have been true if I'd had girls, too, so...it's just who I am. Pink and flowers for days!

Here are some miscellaneous minor details that may or may not interest you:

  • I'm a Virgo Sun, Scorpio Moon, Sagittarius Rising with my North Node in Gemini in my 5th house. (You can see all of my personality types here.)
  • I drink...a lot of coffee. Like, a lot.
  • I love clothes and shopping to probably a "problem" level. Especially thrifting.
  • Raspberries are my favorite fruit, but they sometimes give me a headache so....it's torture.
  • I'm a novice yogi.
  • I have an Associates in Humanities & Social Sciences and a Teaching Assistant Certification and I do nothing with them. Whoopsie.
  • Chardonnay is my adult beverage of choice. Key Lime LaCroix is my non-adult choice.
  • I drive a mini-van and I love it, get over it.
  • I'm obsessed with color, birds, basically anything that grows, animals, and my kids.
  • I hate the numbers 13 and 6 and will do weird things to avoid seeing them or any combination of them. 
  • I believe that if you're going to spend the calories on something naughty, it better involve chocolate.
  • I have ADHD and GAD and I navigate them through therapy and the occasional ramble here on the blog or Instagram.
  • I study Spanish just for funsies.
  • I try really, really hard not to take life too seriously.
