I’m Courtney!! Thank you for being here.
I started my blog a little over 3 years ago as a way to add creativity back into my everyday life. I had just graduated from college at The University of Oklahoma and was working at my first big girl job. My degree is in Marketing but I didn’t start in that field so I hoped my blog would be a way to learn and grow in social media marketing. Little did I know 3 years later, I would have a full time career as a digital marketing specialist and have grown my blog and Instagram into what it is today.
If you haven’t met them yet, this is my fiancé Russell and our 2 year old golden, Ryder. He is the light of our lives and you will probably be seeing A LOT of him if you stick around. Russell is in the Air Force so you will probably hear references to that :). We have been together going on 6.5 years but that is not the beginning of our story. We actually met in art class in middle school on my first day after moving to Oklahoma from Kansas. We ended up going to the same high school but never had another class together. Fast forward to sophomore year of college when we reconnected. A couple of weeks later, Russ left for basic training I was devastated and knew when he came back I wanted to explore whatever it was I felt for him. Thankfully, we have been inseparable ever since!
A little more about me and this space, my blog was originally named The Finishing Touch, but as I grew and evolved so did my styled. I realized that It was time for a change and so ‘Sneakers and Staples’ was born! I have always been a sneaker lover and my closet is full of basics, especially jackets. Give a girl a great pair of sneakers and a leather jacket and she can rule the world.
I am a huge football fan (Go Chiefs & Sooners), love watching dirt bike races with Russ (especially when he is in them) and hanging out with my boys. I am an avid reader and can never get enough Mexican food! You can always find me curled up watching movies or hanging out with family.
Thank you again for being here! If you ever have any questions please feel free to send me an email or shoot me a direct message on Instagram! I love to connect with you!
