Reichel R. Broussard
FOUNDER & EDITOR
I’ve always loved home decor magazines, growing up I remember raiding my Mom's Better Homes and Garden's magazines and tearing out pictures of the rooms I liked. It drove her crazy! :) I've combined my love of home design and my love for all things tech related into a career.
My previous jobs have included working in design and marketing; ranging from marketing at a clothing company to working in the creative department for Pottery Barn. I currently freelance on different creative projects as well as offer style advice and interior design services focusing on lower budgets, but high style. On top of all that I also take the time out to contribute to my blog Copycat Chic.
My husband and I bought our first home a few years ago in the San Francisco Bay Area. In order to afford the high mortgage, we've learned to budget and bargain hunt! When not working, I scoured the internet for sales, closeouts and bargains in order to make our house into a home...on the cheap. I started finding so many deals that I couldn't help but share them with everyone else. And that's how Copy Cat Chic was born!
Announcing the arrival of Arden!Arden was born on March 1st, 2011. Don't worry Copy Cat Chic's original premise will stay the same, but I might have a couple of baby-focus "extra" posts once and awhile!
Other hobbies include riding horses and swimming. The Mr. and I also have a huge interest in living an eco-friendly lifestyle, especially after little Arden was born. We eat mostly organic and I'm currently vegetarian.

Hey guys! I'm Lindsey and I'm thrilled to be a part of the Copy Cat Chic team. I live in Austin, Texas, where I spend my time eating breakfast tacos and renovating my new home with my man Jake and our useless cat Panda. I hold a degree in advertising from the University of Texas (hook em!) and, as a former art director, I believe that designing our homes is less about making something pretty and more about creating a beautiful and meaningful reflection of who we are, regardless of our budgets. I'm a huge fan of using DIY projects to create that feeling of affordable luxury in my own home, so whether I'm picking out a kitchen backsplash or building a chandelier for my dining room, my happy place usually involves power tools and a paint brush. I love nothing more than a great bargain, and I'm looking forward to sharing some of my tips and tricks for getting a look you love without breaking the bank. You can find me over at my blog, Lindsey Does, or say hi on Instagram at @holalindsey
Hi there! My name is Erin and I'm so excited to join the Copy Cat Chic team. By day I am an auditor and a grad student working on my MBA, but by night I moonlight as a home design, fashion,and DIY blogger at Livin' the Glam Life. I grew up in the Bay Area and when I moved into a cute little place by myself, I discovered that I absolutely love interior design and finding gorgeous pieces at a steal. My philosophy is to DIY anything and everything and to create spaces where you just can't help but smile. And that includes using a lot of color! When I'm not studying or working on my house you can find me hanging out with my bff around the Bay Area, an 8-pound maltipom named Ella and loving every minute of it. I can't wait to start sharing with you a little bit of my style and a lot of great finds :)
