WELCOME TO LA LA LOVELY—a lifestyle blog, written by Trina McNeilly, that inspires and encourages women in their everyday lives

Hello! I’m Trina, daughter, wife, mother of four, author, and a sometimes stylist who has a habit of looking for the lovely—some days I find it in perfectly styled spaces and other days in the broken places.

In 2008 I founded La La Lovely as a place to share my favorite finds and work out my words. Over the years, La La Lovely has become a popular lifestyle blog that offers weekly inspiration—sharing tangible beauty, seen with the eyes, as well as soulful beauty forged through faith in the deep places of the heart.

I believe that beauty is everywhere and in everything—even within our darkest days—it just takes noticing—paying attention!

Let’s get to looking for the lovely and noticing beauty, together!
