Hi! I’m Tonya!
I’m a prairie girl transplanted to Wisconsin by way of Kentucky. I’m an attorney by education and trade and I hold licenses to practice law in Kentucky and Wisconsin. But I gave up the practice to give myself more time to raise my 2 kids and relish the little time my husband and I get together. I now work part time for a hospice company as their Director of Human Resources.
I love all makeup and face masks, but also spreadsheets and planners and data.
I love paper products (Erin Condren, russell+hazel, knock knock- just take all my money) and small leather goods.
I never buy new clothes but you’ll always see me carrying a Kate Spade handbag.
Mike Nesmith has been my first love since I was 10 years old. I also adore Ben Gibbard and Joel Hanson.
But my heart truly belongs to my very own Ukrainian. My husband is from Ukraine (he immigrated at 28) and you will see that influence in some Ukrainian elements in my brand, including my adorable Team Poshtryoshka logo designed by one of my Posh team members, Brandy Miller. (Nesting dolls are called matryoshkas in Russian. Posh + matryoshka = Poshtryoshka!)
I love to travel. St Thomas and Kiev fight for my favorite places on earth. Next up is London, this summer.
My guilty pleasures are vintage candy and soda. (Cracker Barrel is usually my dealer!)
I love floaty pens you get at tourist traps with the items that float back and forth when you tilt the pen.
I am a huge recycler.
I believe there are better ways to test cosmetics than on animals.
And above all, I believe you can’t take care of others if you don’t take care of yourself. If you’re giving so much you have nothing left for yourself, it’s time to reevaluate. Or at least pop on a face mask and hop in the tub!
