Welcome to The Galista,

I’m Hanna.

I created this lifestyle blog because I want a place where I can share all the things I enjoy in life.

I’m still scrambling to figure out all the parts of me, but let me tell you what I know:

I’m 22 years old, and I married my high school sweetheart in December of 2015. So corny, I know. He is enlisted in the Army. A few months after we got married I left my small town in Indiana to move over 740 miles away to North Carolina with him. It was terrifying and so exciting at the same time. Besides being away from friends and family, I enjoy it here. I like the experience of living somewhere new. Surprisingly enough the wanderlust is still strong in me, and I’m excited to see what our next adventure will be.

I am a lover of all things thrifted. I just love the hunt for a good deal in general. Every time I get a deal high, my poor husband has to play the “Guess How Much I Bought all of this for”. Every. Time. Does anyone else know what I’m talking about? The “deal high”?

I am a total foodie. I don’t often discriminate when it comes to my food, but my two main vices are pasta and chocolate. Everyone always ends up comparing me to the Snickers commercial. Hangry? That is totally a thing in my life.

My guilty pastimes consist of watching copious amounts of YouTube and binge-watching Netflix. Though I dabble in all the pop culture shows, my all time favorite t.v. show is Gilmore Girls. I first watched it in middle school have been obsessed ever since. Not much has changed, besides now I have an undying longing for a Revival Part 2.

Lastly, for now, anyone that knows me knows I’m a total pug enthusiast. I have two black pugs, Bella and Zoey. They keep my heart warm and fuzzy (even when I’m my hangry self). I also have pug boxers, pug socks, and even a few pug mugs. Basically, name the pug paraphernalia and I probably have it in my collection.

From my little blog, you can expect to see thrift hauls, DIY’s, my must have’s and so much more!

Thanks for checking out this weird thrifty gal’s first post, I appreciate it so incredibly much. Before you go, I’d love it if you told me a little bit about yourself in the comment section below. See ya next time!
