Bachelorette Emily Maynard leads such a fabulous life, we can barely keep up! This southern belle has been chillaxing in Charlotte, North Carolina since The Bachelorette Season 8 wrapped up filming last year, and despite the fact that she's laying pretty low in the wake of her highly publicized breakup with Bachelorette winner Jef Holm last Fall, girlfriend hasn't been idle. Psh, far from it.
Not only is Emily a full-time mom to her adorable seven-year-old daughter Ricki (a role that takes up most of her time), she's turned her love for beauty and fashion into a full time job! Emily recently debuted her lifestyle and fashion blog, which features advice, beauty tips, and a even a section where you can ask Em questions. Since launching her blog in early March, this gal has dished the secrets to her amazing skin (spoiler alert: hella products), tips for keeping makeup organized, and naturally a few beauty must-haves — like her trusty Clarisonic!
As far as Emily's love life goes, this gal is still single, and she insists that dating isn't her top priority. "I have so many things going on and I’ve realized that after going on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, I gave it a pretty good shot," she said back in March. "I probably should start focusing on something else. Obviously I’m a mom before anything, so that’s my first focus."
Get it, girl. And by "girl," we mean self-described West Virginia Hood Rat.
In other news, it looks like rumors of Emily's big move to California didn't pan out. Despite the fact that the internet has been abuzz with speculation that Em wants to move to L.A. to further her career, she seems happy as a clam in North Carolina, where Ricki's grandparents, Rick and Linda Hendrick, also live.
