I’m Erica, the author of Coming Up Roses. And I’m really friggin’ stoked you’re here. I’m a Philadelphia-based life-and-style blogger, brand strategist, business consultant, newlywed, and wine-and-cheese enthusiast. The Wharton School of Business at UPenn was my four-year home, but there was not a chance in you-know-where that I was ending up on Wall Street. (They don’t like pink enough.)
Now, I live my passion working as a blogger, content creator and digital influencer for brands, as well as creating courses for bloggers (hollah, BossPitch!). I also help businesses and entrepreneurs build brands the right way, creating custom brand, marketing, and social media strategies. I discovered that I’m 100% more fulfilled when I can change your life through changing the way you think about brand-building and your business. And when I can make you believe in yourself a little more and feel a bit more joyful, that’s the icing.
In other news, I’m fueled by strong coffee, loud laughter, a bold lip, and great accessories. I use bobby pins only slightly less than oxygen, I’m one cat short of crazy cat lady status, and I’ve yet to meet a latte or cupcake I didn’t like. I live right outside Philly with my awesome husband and our cats, Moose and Pumpkin.
I am so grateful you found yourself here. I appreciate and lovelovelove your support, and I hope your day is Coming Up Roses!
I hope Coming Up Roses feels like your best friend, through a blog. My whole inspiration to start this shindig in the first place spawned from wanting to create a space where you could go to feel a sense of community and connection. It’s not meant to be this uppity, overly aspirational hub of pretty things – it’s meant to be the pretty, real things. The things that you genuinely connect with and “get,” and the things that are realistic for you to bring into yo’ everyday life.
Think of CUR as your go-to platform for being more authentically joyful and inspired to live your best life, all with a cuppa coffee or glass of Cabernet in hand. Here you’ll find everyday style inspiration, affordable lifestyle tips, #RealTalk inspiration (because we never shy away from a good girl chat), and authentic relationship advice. Not everything in life is all pretty and perfect, and every rose has its thorn. But here, we’re blossoming into our best selves together, so everything is…coming up roses.
Now, I want to hear about you (because that’s what best friends do, amiright?). Come over to Instagram and drop a comment, shoot me a tweet, or leave a shoutout on the CUR Facebook page. And for more rosy action, get the #CURation once a week, every week. I won’t let you down.
