Meet My New Kitten!

It’s official. I’m a crazy cat lady. I’ve always been a pet person. I still remember when we got my puppy way back in middle school. An adorable shitzu named Milo. We unfortunately had to give him to family friends because he was too much work for our family of five. Puppies take a ton of energy and I was a spoiled eighth grader who left all the work to my mom. I’ve wanted another pet ever since. KB and I work full time and as much as we’ve always thought of ourselves as “dog people,” pups are needy. Let me […]

3 Reasons to Wear Feminine Pins

I’m way behind on this trend – but pins are everywhere. There’s a plethora of pins on the market, but when I really set out to shop I struggled to find one thing: pins that were feminine. I’m definitely not a girly girl (my wardrobe is 90% black) but I’m obsessed with contrasting my all black everything with feminine accessories. I needed to find my perfect feminine pins and I totally lost my mind when I found these little gems from Red Bandana Pins. Express yourself! I think what I love most about pins as accessories is the ability to […]

How to Lose Weight While on Vacation

I’ve been doing so much traveling lately and as I’ve bounced from city to city I’ve realized just how hard it is to stay healthy while on vacation. From sipping on way too many craft beers in Portland to all you can eat buffets in Mexico, I haven’t exactly been on top of my fitness regime. As KB and I have spent the better part of a month traveling I’ve found small ways to stay healthy – and even lose weight – while on vacation! Choose healthy foods (most of the time). Alright alright, I’m not saying to pass up on […]

The Story of my Quarter Life Crisis

Hello. My name is Kelsey and I’m having a quarter life crisis. I’m not sure I ever thought quarter life crises were a real thing. Or mid life crises. But if this week has convinced me of anything it’s that the quarter life crisis is real and oh em gee it’s happening to me right now. I want to preface this entire thing by saying I’m not after a pity party and that I’m well aware of how good I have it. I’m so lucky to live the life I live. I’m surrounded by amazing people who care about me. […]

Celebrating Our 3 Year Anniversary at Riu Palace!

KB and I celebrated our three year anniversary at the end of July! It’s seriously crazy to think three years have come and gone. We’ve been up and down the California coast and sunbathed in Positano. We’ve picked pumpkins and shucked oysters. It’s been awesome to have a best friend and partner to have life adventures with! As our anniversary approached we brainstormed ideas for how best to celebrate. While I’m always just as happy to hit up Capitola, we decided we needed a relaxing getaway instead. After a ton of research we opted to head to Cabo San Lucas […]

How to Pack the Perfect Gym Bag

I am not a health nut and am definitely not a gym rat. A month ago I basically wouldn’t have been caught dead within 50 feet of a gym. I was an athlete in high school and although I gave that up once I hit college, I stayed active enough (and had great metabolism) that a gym wasn’t necessary. Flash forward to age 24 and my metabolism isn’t what it used to be. I am a full believer that life’s too short to not enjoy food – but exercise isn’t negotiable. I’ve been getting up early to hit the gym […]
