The Elegant Parent Website
This web resource is for you: all the Elegant Parents out there who want to build a home and a life that is calm, fun, beautiful, cozy, exciting, adventurous and elegant.
Hopefully this will become a frequent stop during your website time, where you will access resources, come away with ideas for family time and date nights, learn a few things, and teach me as well!
This website is a resource on elegant living, and it can be broken down into (slightly grandiose) themes:
Womanhood and Femininity
Manhood and Honor
Children and Innocence
Living well on a Budget
Looking Good on a Budget
This website also holds “My Funny Blog” which is a shared diary or …the written webisodes of my life. In the blog, I chronicle my life as a mom actively pursuing elegance…my life as a woman, a wife, a mom, a daughter, a spiritual person, a human being. There’s no “perfect” in my blog, people, I am SO not perfect; I don’t try and put up a facade or sell myself as a “brand”, you just get pure, unadulterated Tiana: a mix of silly, suspicious, funny, shy, outgoing, smart, bookish, loyalty ad infinitum.
And here’s your host,
Alec Trebeck Tiana!
I am a classically trained oil painter, a craftswoman, a writer, and an inventor. Before children I lived a life of quiet research, filling up on anime, pizza, and foreign films. Now, as wife to a 6-syllable scientist (who also drives me insane, Moonstruck style) and stay at home/work from home mom to a precious 3 year old and a sweet, sweet, 1.5 year old a LOT of my time is spent CLEANING -_-” but when I’m not cleaning, I’m talking with you, homeschooling, crafting, inventing, and…living 😀
A little bit more about me…I love elegance and luxury. I have a high appreciation for the history and craftsmanship of luxury items: Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Beulah London, Burberry, Erin Fetherston, the list…is extensive. However, I also LOVE couponing, finding deals, and I’m on a strict budget.
So how can you enjoy a luxurious lifestyle on an extremely modest budget? Is it possible to be elegant if you are struggling in your finances or in other areas of your life? (yes dahling, it is! read on!)
“But what is elegance?” You ask. “And why are you pursuing it?”
Well, keep reading and let’s find out together 😉
