About Me

I’m Barbara, B, or Babs to most people. Barbara Jean, if you are a family member or childhood friend (Thank you Mom for naming me after a Soap Opera Character). By day, I am an Operations Manager , 24-7 Mom of three, and moonlight as a self-proclaimed shopper extraordinaire (read: shopaholic). My blood type is Starbucks, you will almost always find a pack of peanut M&M’s in my bag. (never know when you’ll have a M&M emergency, for me it’s on the daily), and I never met a nacho I didn’t fall madly in love with!

I live with my boyfriend, Dave in Westchester County, NY. We have a yours & mine situation happening here! I have a 21-year-old son and Dave has two young kids 10 & 8, who live with us. I am a firm believer in destiny, Dave and I met in High School, dated for two years, went our separate ways, and ended up back together 20 years later.

Why did I start a blog?

I have been talking about starting a Life & Style blog for years. I genuinely love life and every crazy curve it throws. I’ve been through ups and downs, single mom trying to make ends meet, horrible dating life, to being reunited with the man of my dreams and helping him raise two young kids. I am not a professional writer, but I have a story to tell, food to eat, places to see, and shopping to do.


Why follow B’s Sweet Life?

I love to Shop, Eat, Travel, and Have fun…not necessarily in that order, although it seems like a good plan. As much as I love to eat, Cooking is not my thing, I once made an entire meal for a dinner party in a toaster and microwave, it was delish BTW and my best DIY creation was an old shirt wrapped around a roll of paper towel to create a headband holder for an 8-year-old. Needless to say, I will not be the next Martha Stewart, however shopping, eating, traveling, and having fun makes me unbelievably giddy and I want to share it with the world. I have great friends and an amazing family, you’ll want to stick around to see what type of shenanigans we get into!
