I’m Anna, and I don't think style has to be sacrificed for price! I love creating DIYs that don't look homemade and look deceptively expensive. I just had my first little one with my incredibly supportive husband Ryan. I got my degree in Mathematics and work full time at home, but also run Practical and Pretty! I hope you like saving time and money, because that's what I'm here for!
