Hi! We’re Sass and Sweetness, aka Christie and Samantha, two 29 year old lifelong besties living in New Jersey on a mission to live a healthy lifestyle! We love incorporating healthy living into our everyday routines, even when that everyday routine includes a glass of pinot! Most days you’ll find us working (because someone has to pay the bills), getting our fitness on, meal prepping, shopping online, and throwing together cute outfits. We started this blog simply to spend more time together and show ourselves and you that when life gives you lemons, you can still make it fun and beautiful! See below for a little bit more about each of us!
Christie: You might be wondering where the nickname Sass came from! Well, I was given the title Sassarella by my roommate in college (Hoya Saxa!) for my no nonsense, straight up, and sassy way of telling a story and it just sort of stuck with me! Anyway, since then I’ve moved around from Washington, DC to Boston, Massachusetts, and now finally back home to New Jersey with my husband and baby girl, Lucia. My goal is to show myself and all moms out there that we can still be our best selves even though our lives are not simply our own anymore.
Samantha: I coined the name Sweetness back in our childhood years playing house and restaurant! Though I was called Sweetness, I was quite the bundle of energy and ended up becoming a gymnast and cheerleader for most of my life. That is where my passion for working out and living a healthy lifestyle comes from and though the gym is my second home, you’ll only see me in flat shoes when I’m there. Otherwise, you will always find me in heels and usually overdressed for every occasion. Now back in New Jersey after living on the West coast for a few years, I’m planting my roots again in the Garden state. My goal is to be an inspiration for women of all ages by showing them how they can incorporate health and confidence into their everyday life.
