About Us


My name is Jenn, nice to meet you. I have lived all over the east coast and I currently reside in Baltimore, MD with my boyfriend Patrick and our cat Pig. The Cheap Luxury is a lifestyle blog dedicated to bringing you inspiring budget-friendly information to help you live a more creative life. I have lived my life pinching pennies and trying to live the best way possible. I want to share the tips I’ve learned along the way including recipes, styling ideas, and projects you will be able to do yourself. My mom taught me to sew when I was a little girl. She always made our Halloween costumes and anything we needed for school plays and projects. My dad was a photographer who influenced me a great deal throughout my life to capture everything because life is amazing. I am inspired by film photography, fall weather, vintage textiles, and bright colors. I am lucky enough to know so many talented people who will be contributing in different ways throughout this blog. Thanks for reading!



Hey there, I’m Emily! I grew up in a quiet farm town in western Maryland, but have called Baltimore home for close to a decade, where I own a home with my husband Alex and our boxer Luke (aka “The Beast“). During the day I’m knee deep teaching Middle School Art, and I spend the majority of my days wrangling boisterous 12 and 13 year olds so I try my best to use my evenings to calm down and de-stress by keeping my hands and brain busy while making things of all kinds. My goal has always been to put my stamp of individuality on the things around me; whether that’s tweaking recipes to fit my diet and lifestyle, refashioning thrifty clothing finds or making my own things to mimic the more expensive trends my teacher salary can’t get me.
