Her Morning Coffee


Hello! Thank You For Visiting

Hi! I'm Vanessa and I'm so excited you stopped by for a visit. My goal is for us to sit and have our morning coffee together so we can get to know each other. My hope is you find tips, new ideas, fashion and beauty advice, fun recipes, and inspiration while you sip your morning coffee!

A little about me. I was born and raised in Los Angeles California, to parents in the entertainment industry.  I fell in love with acting when I was 12 years old. I was fortunate enough to be considered a "working actress" for my entire life. I did a lot of TV shows and movies over the years and still do. I began to realize there was so much more to life than waiting around for an acting job. I also stopped feeling as passionate about acting as I got older. I moved to Nashville for love and I'm married to an amazing man named Miles. We have a blue heeler named Dakota and a baby boy on the way! In my down time, I discovered a serious passion for fashion and a true love for designing jewelry. I developed a jewelry line called Vanessalee Jewelry where I collect gems and pendants from all over the world to create one-of-a-kind statement pieces and simple, dainty, everyday jewelry for everyone.

Fashion has always been in my blood. I was the kid in the family who at age 4 my mom would lay out three clothing options for me and when she came back in the room, I was in something I had chosen from the closet on my own that did not match and some would say was "eccentric"!  As I got older, I was the girl everyone called for skin advice and makeup tips. The one to call when looking for a new foundation or face serum. I've usually tried it ALL.

I love people so much, I truly enjoy sitting and getting to know a stranger on a deep level, and I love helping people. Helping others has always been top of my list. On my journey, I discovered the joy it brought me when I was able to help a friend or even a stranger feel fabulous in an outfit or sparkle in one of my hand made necklaces, or help someone find the perfect product for their skin. This brought such joy to my heart. Then I got the chance to start doing charity work in other parts of the world and my heart completely cracked open. There is no better feelingthan spending time with children in need who appreciate a hug more than they do any "thing" you could offer them.

Her Morning Coffee started as an idea as most things do, when several people began messaging me on Instagram and Facebook about my travels, clothes, and what skin & hair products I use. I began receiving lots of messages from people asking me if I had a blog or ever thought of starting one. The thought had honestly never crossed my mind until then. I began to think how fun it would be to share my passions with everyone and all the cool ideas and things I find on my adventures. I'm just trying to keep it as real and honest as I journey through this crazy thing called life!! That is how Her Morning Coffee was born!
