About Me

Hello-Helloooo!

I’m Ginger Zimtbaum and I want to Welcome you to Ginger & Zimt!

This is my little home in the blogosphere where I like to chit-chat about life, gush over cute outfits, and share reviews of my favorite (or not so favorite) things.

I’m a highly creative, ADD driven, 40-something, career SAHM of two daughters (ages 13 & 8), with a serious knack for fashion & personal styling, a 100 pound weight loss under my belt, a passion for shooting Traditional Archery (my meditation), and an addiction to volunteering in our schools!

My blog’s name, Ginger & Zimt, is a combo of my real name and expresses my love of being a natural Redhead!  Zimt is the German word for Cinnamon. My last name actually translates to Cinnamon Tree (seriously, how cool is that?!?).

In 2015 I took up the hobby of Blogging because I desperately craved a creative outlet and I really enjoy writing.  Then I ended up finding bliss within the act of learning to blog and learning the many skill-sets that go along with it!   This blog will forever be a blog in development because there is so much to learn!  Since blogging is my hobby and doesn’t pay the bills (at least not YET) I need to work it in as life permits, so I don’t post according to any set schedules and the post frequency is not very consistent!  I hope that will one day change.

Ginger & Zimt is a personal, Midlife Mom blog where I share my life and my experiences in the hopes others will be able to relate and perhaps gain something from it.  Check out the My Styling Bliss segments for style inspiration and My Self Improvement Project segments for weight loss tips and motivation (as well as other random self-improvement challenges I assign myself)!  I also chat about the deeper stuff, like grief, and anything else that life throws my way.

I LOVE doing reviews of the products we use and activities we do (in our real lives)!  I’m one of those indecisive consumers who wants to know as much practical information about something before I buy it or book a vacation spot (usually a camp site), so I like to share what I find with others!  The reviews I do are usually of products I personally purchase from the store.  IF I ever post a collaborative review (something that I did not personally purchase, that was sent to me by a company for review) I will clearly state so in the post.

In 2017, my personal style inspiration segment, My Styling Bliss, inspired the launch of Ginger & Zimt Boutique, an in-home and online, pop-up clothing boutique with an emphasis on private shopping, personal styling and concierge level customer service!  You can visit GingerAndZimt.Boutique for all the details as it is a completely separate venture from this blog… but it helps pay the bills which does support my blogging!  =o)

Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by, hope you will visit again really soon!
