My Gal Friday is all about supporting other bloggers, and sharing some of my favourite pages with all of you.

This week I want to introduce you to Ruthie of Ruthie Ridley Blog.

I don’t even know where to begin! There are some people that manage to do it all with class, style, and a gorgeous smile; Ruthie is one of those amazing women. On top of running her super inspiring blog, Ruthie is a mother of three gorgeous (not to mention super stylish!) little ones, works full time, and is a wife (a full time job in and of itself!). I don’t know how she does it all with the most happy and light spirit! I love how not only does she post inspirational style photos, but she is not afraid to share her faith, and discuss the important things in life.

I met Ruthie through a blogging network her and Annie and Kat of Collective Passions started called StyleCollective. This support group has changed my love and passion for blogging.  Having a support group of other bloggers behind you will change your blogging life! I know it’s made all the difference for me. (Check out the StyleCollective page to learn more and join this amazing group of women!)

I had to narrow these pictures down from the million and one that I love of hers! Her smile is just so stunning, and her beauty truly comes from the inside out.

My favourite part about My Gal Friday posts is sharing a Q & A with the featured blogger. Ruthie was so kind to answer some questions to share with you!

  • What inspires you to blog?
“Connecting with people, being a light & a source of inspiration.” (Ruthie, you are a light and source of inspiration for me!)
  •  You’re a mom, a wife, your work, you blog- how in the world do you fit everything in??
“Lol! I prioritize! I sleep when I can and I fit things in where I am able. Time with my kids is so important since I work full time. I often shoot for an entire month in one day. It’s all in the planning + lots of prayer for grace!” (You are so amazing!)
  •  Favourite item in your closet?
“All of my oversized tees and sweaters. I’m all about comfort!” (AMEN.)
  • Guilty pleasure.
“In n out & gummy candies.” (I have yet to try In n Out!)
  •  Five words you would use to describe your style!
“Timeless, chic, loud, comfortable + personal.”  (I pick: chic, classic, bright, unique, and stunning- we are so on point!)
For this week’s My Gal Friday feature I am super excited to introduce a new feature! Ruthie shared with me three of her current shopping picks. I matched each of these with my own pick to create a blogging duo style list. (Click to shop!)

Go give the gorgeous and talented Ruthie’s page a peek! I know you’ll love her as much as I do, and she will inspire you to be all you can be.
