I am Suzanne… a proud 40+ Mom of 2 teens, Wife and Business Partner to my husband Rick Bell at Alain Pinel Realtors, Realtor, Lifestyle Blogger, Avid Thrifter, Pinterest Junkie, Lover of a Great Beach Read, Style Lover.
After spending 16 years as an Executive at Nordstrom Inc., I retired in 2003 to pursue a career in Real Estate here in the heart of Silicon Valley. Though it was a difficult decision to leave to Fashion Industry, I quickly embraced the flexible schedule that came along with being my own boss.
AskSuzanneBell was launched in 2014 as a passion project and creative outlet. A people person, I love helping others achieve their goals; be it the home of their dreams or a perfectly organized closet filled with items YOU love. I strongly believe that personal style goes way beyond what you wear; it is an expression of our most inner self – who we are at the core. It’s a feeling that comes with knowing who we are and being confident in how we choose to present ourselves to the world. The best part? Great style can be had by anyone, at any age, on any budget! I believe in the power of style; that a fabulous pair of shoes and lipgloss can instantly change your mood! An avid thrifter, I love to share my tips and tricks to finding designer pieces at second hand prices. ThredUp and Poshmark are Ebay are two of the best sites created to help us reuse and recycle fashion from the comfort of our homes.
Style surrounds us and all that we do, everyday; why not have some fun with it? I know I will learn a thing or two along this journey and hope you do as well! Thank you for joining me along the way!
