Hi, I am Tanya Foster, a Dallasite, lifestyle blogger, actor and empty nester who fancies myself famous—if only in my own mind. I’m also a wife and mom to four grown children. Pete and I are pet parents to two Norfolk terriers, Sparky and Max and an orange tabby cat named Ruby Lou with some serious attitude!
My blogging journey began in January 2014 with a simple mission to learn how to do something new. It quickly grew and in 2016 TanyaFoster.com – a lifestyle blog expanded to cover FASHION, BEAUTY, TRAVEL and LIFESTYLE. I’m on a mission to help women look and feel their best – at any age. Occasionally, I’ll invite my subscribers to an advance film screening where we can all have a good time. Are you on the list?
I’m an everyday gal about town always exploring new opportunities especially when it pertains to aesthetic procedures and a good retail sale! Do you have something you would like for me to consider in my editorial content? Be sure to contact me here. I hope you will stop by TanyaFoster.com often. My intent is to inspire you to try something new while we’re talking over coffee via the daily blog post. I love seeing you every day!
A NEW blog post is published five days a week at 6:00 AM and it distributes via e-mail at 9:00 AM to my subscribers. It’s like we are having our morning coffee together! All content is archived on the blog and searchable in the ‘SEARCH’ window. To date, over 1,400 blog posts have been published!
I am on the go and in the know. Enjoy the journey. xoxo – Tanya

How tall are you? I’m 5’8″
What sizes are you wearing in your pictures? Unless otherwise noted, I am wearing a size 6 or small.
How long have you been blogging? I’ve been blogging for over 6 years. It’s by far my favorite job and I love what I do!
Hair details please. Gaby Chico is responsible for my blonde tresses. Jessica Tigert cuts my hair. On most shoot days, I have gone to get my hair blown out at The Dry Bar. Here is how I manage my hair at home. UPDATE: Since November 2019, I have hair extensions. Michael Flores at the Michael Flores Salon does them. You can read about it in this hair extension blog post. Additionally, I swear by using Nutrafol daily.
Favorite make-up and skincare products? Oh gosh, there are so many! I love trying new products and discovering brands. I try products for at least 2 weeks before I share them on the blog. If they don’t work for me or I simply don’t like them, you will never see it on here. I simply chose to not write about it. My daily make-up routine can be seen here.

Where can we follow you? I’m on all social media and linking it for you (@tanyafosterblog). If you want to see behind the scenes, daily shenanigans and a lot of pet videos, be sure to check out my Instagram Stories. I feel like that’s the real me!

Is this your full-time job? YES!
What did you do before blogging? I was the President and CEO of the Dallas International Film Festival, which is why I still love all things film. Before that, I was a non-profit consultant, helping small non-profit organizations with their fund raising events. Prior to going back to work, I was a stay at home Mom which I feel is the most important job I have ever had. I have a BSED and taught high school for two years upon graduating from college. After that, I joined the business world and worked until I had children.
Do you have suggestions for charities to get involved with? YES! I’ve been a member or volunteer of the following organizations and know first-hand of their great work. Donating to any of these organizations is money well spent! The Crystal Charity Ball, Cattle Baron’s Ball, the Junior League of Dallas, The Family Place, Genesis Women’s Shelter, Community Partners of Dallas, EQUEST, After School All-Stars and Operation Kindness (where we adopted Ruby Lou)
