I’m your [not-so-typical] Long Island girl whose dream always was to land a career in the fashion industry. As an accessory designer, I’ve been honored to work for some amazing companies such as Steve Madden, Henri Bendel and Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet. I decided to start my Long Island-based blog And Simple Things in 2018 after making a New Year’s resolution to finally turn my #ootd’s on Instagram into something more.


I needed a creative outlet to fill a void I felt working in corporate.

It was only a matter of time before I realized I loved the graphics part of my job more than the actual product I was designing.


I started my graphic design business as a side-hustle creating logos and business cards for local small businesses on Long Island. Today I help small businesses bring their brand identity to life through logos, business cards, social media graphics, websites and more!

I absolutely LOVE Michelle's work. When creating my website I got so lost. With her help, I was able to bring my vision alive and I couldn’t be more obsessed with how everything turned out! She’s so kind, patient and she really tries to get every last detail to your liking which I love. So happy I got to work with her, I would one hundred percent recommend her work.
