“I was born a small town girl from Bremond, Texas who turned big city goals and ambitions into the dream lifestyle I live today. I believe I was put on this Earth by my savior Jesus Christ to love my unicorn husband with all my heart, as true love is a special blessing from God. I have a passion for fashion, design, fitness, community and exploration while also believing in full circle good karma. I strive to sparkle and shine in all tasks I undertake and enjoy celebrating all of life’s victories – no matter how big or small they may be. It is my ultimate goal to empower and encourage each and every one of you through my transparent lifestyle blog. The world needs more light and positivity amongst the unfortunate weight of its brokenness, therefore, I truly hope you enjoy the shimmer that I have to share.”

Well hello to all my beautiful blog followers!  Let me tell you a little bit about my life.  I am Randa Yezak Carrabba from Bryan/College Station, Texas and I am 29 years young.

I am the founder of Southern Jewlz Boutique, and now I’m a new and upcoming lifestyle blogger.  I recently lost 38 pounds and got in the best shape of my life in the last 3 years!  I love all things pink and sparkly, I’m obsessed with being blonde and I aspire to be the best version of myself and to live the fullest life possible!  I don’t want any regrets, “what-if’s”, “I should have’s” or “I wish I could’ve’s” at the end of my life journey.  I am by no means where I want to be, but I thoroughly enjoy this journey call life that’s helping me get there!

I recently married the love of my life on February 4, 2017 at Miramont Country Club in Bryan, Texas.  My husband’s name is Grant Carrabba and he is 32 years old, born and raised an only child in Bryan, Texas.  He is the most handsome and incredible man I have ever known, and I am beyond proud to be his wife!  Anyone who knows him will tell you I married the most respectful, well-mannered, thoughtful and professional man around.  He pushes me to be the best version of myself every single day!  I recently closed my storefront of 6+ years to make Grant my top priority with my career #2.  I like to justify things by “What will I think when I’m 80 years old and looking back on my life?”  I want to be the best wife that helps contribute my part to a beautiful and wonderful marriage.  I am so proud of myself for being so brave in the world we live in today to step back and put the worldly success I have had beneath my husband.  True love is a gift from God!  Some people search their entire lives and never find it, while others let it wither away.  I however choose to cherish it and make it the top priority of my life.  I love you Grant!

You can learn even more about us on the wedding website I built for us at www.GrantandRanda.com.

Whenever I started dating Grant, I inherited the most precious little fur child – Bucky the Bulldog!  If you follow me on snapchat, you know he is the main little love star of our lives!  Being a bulldog mom is easily one of my favorite titles to date!

This blog will be a reflection of my life, mine and Grant’s adventures and travels, my fashion fashions, my health and fitness suggestions, our dream home design (that Grant started building as a surprise for me the day after he proposed while we were still in Las Vegas!), beauty tips, girl boss talk (believe me, I’ve learned some hard lessons and want to help you avoid some of the hardships I had to go through), and my life as being a wife to the one God created for me!

I like to keep everything pretty raw and real.  I post pictures and posts that I know won’t be the most popular, but those that are near and dear to my heart.  I don’t post anything that doesn’t reflect my own personal style, nor anything that I wouldn’t purchase, wear or try on my own!  Thank you so much for following along!
