Hi there, friend!

Welcome to my blog, The Joyfull Now. My name is Nina and it is my joy (see what I did there!) to share my musings, feelings, fashion, beauty, and lifestyle tips with you. 

The English degree in me could not pass up the opportunity for a good, old-fashioned definition, and while I know that the correct spelling of joyful includes only one "L," I intentionally added another one. I'm a word junkie; I love learning new words and trying my hardest to accurately and fully express what it means. Joyful with one "L" simply didn't do enough. 

Joyfull. Happiness that is complete. Delight that is not lacking in any way. The Joyfull Now is my life. It's where I am at, and where I constantly choose to be.

Does this mean that my life is only peace, sunshine, rainbows, and fabulous things? Nope. I have experienced these things, yes, but my life has also been filled with heartache, disappointment, frustration, and missed opportunities. Yet, I am learning to seek joy along the way. To seek joy in spite of these things. To seek joy in ALL of these things. 

Yes, my blog is going to offer beauty tips, fashion finds, fitness suggestions, and much more, but I wanted to first give you a glimpse of who I am. I hope that you find joy, as you journey with me.
