About Me


Welcome to Magnolia Mama, I’m Marcy, just your average fashion addict, born and raised in Louisiana.

Graduate of Fashion Merchandising with a Business Minor.

I love vintage furniture, lace, Audrey Hepburn, stripes, coffee, the beach, being organized, oversized sweaters, traveling, The Breakfast Club, the color pink, and chocolate chip cookies.

Things I like to do include cooking, scrapbooking, shopping, and spending time with family. Babies and animals are my weakness. I have an adorable baby boy named Dillon. I am married to my high school sweetheart of over 13 years. I have a cockapoo named Lola. I love helping other people whether it be in how to dress, or life in general.

We live right outside of New Orleans. The name of my blog is inspired by Louisiana’s state flower, the Magnolia. I am a Southern, mama, old soul who wears her heart on her sleeve.

This blog here is a creative outlet for me to share my take on styling, food, travel,  and a little budgeting as well as hopefully inspire others in the their own life endeavors. I also have an online shop where you can shop, it’s called Magnolia Mill.

This blog has become much like a very public diary. I love sharing my DIY experiences, personal heart aches, life’s rejoices, and just spreading smiles around. I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read and I hope to bring you words of encouragement, crafty ideas, fashion advice, or simply a laugh.
