Hello! I'm Kelsey and I'm writer behind this little corner of the internet! Here I celebrate the beauty of balancing out life with a passion of skincare and beauty to my newest travels - I love chatting about it all. I'm so happy to welcome you to a balancing peach and as always - real pants are never required here!
And a bit of a mid 20's life crisis... from a road of heartbreak and a desire for balancing out my passions, I started out as a beauty blogger. But I soon found my true passion in bringing my camera up from my vanity. (Ok you got me I still love a good beauty bit.)
Balance is what it's all about here!! You may find beauty finds to travel musts and back to just daily lifestyle posts. I'm so happy you found my corner of the internet and am happy to share the beauty of balance with you.
Your products deserve more than a snapshot. They deserve a view of the hard work and heart put behind them.
Ok. Let’s just admit that sometimes less is hard. It can be eye opening and life altering absolutely. But it can also be really freaking hard. Especially when you open your closet doors and yep. The same old pants, sweater and shoes stare at you and dare you to find a combo that you haven’t already worn. Three times. This week.
I really do think less is a mindset. But I also have had those moments where the two sweaters I stashed in my checkout cart are starting to look r e a l good. So here are some ways I help fight the ‘But this top will change my life’ moods.
Irony of all ironies…. my life has felt pretty unbalanced these days. Which is a bit embarrassing as I’m supposed to be all about balance in this corner of the internet, but I think its fair to say I’ve been failing over here. Though this is the reason I didn’t called myself ‘the balanced peach.’ I’m certainly not an expert. Just passionate about balance.
And I fail. A lot sometimes.
It was one night when I had blearily looked up from my computer from editing and realized I hadn’t spent a night with L not in front of my computer screen. And I hadn’t reached out to any offers about meeting up with new friends. It was one of those late night, half hearted lightbulb moments that I needed to commit to some new habits.
Fall is the time of cozy knits and pumpkin spice everything. The season where we can come up with endless excuses to have wine and cheese nights. And where the ratio of time spent in my PJs gets dangerously close to 50/50 to real pants. But possibly the best part of this season… giving.
It’s a season we start look past our own checklists and needs and start to look around a bit. While I wish I could say I always am taking the time to give back to my community, it’s unfortunately one of those things that gets constantly pushed to the back burner. So I started coming up ways that help it stay on top of my mind.
As much as I love beauty products turns out that I’m actually quite a little cynic when it comes to products. Products often seem a bit over hyped these days and it takes me awhile to commit to buying them. However, when you find the ones that well worth their formulation and packaging you don’t let them go.
I l o v e taking photos with the goal of connecting with people. It brings me way too much joy and often challenges me in the best of ways. That being said it’s also quite confusing. It’s more than standing in front of a pretty scenery (though one of my favorites), it’s about capturing one still moment people can connect with.
Though getting the key components to lifestyle photography practiced and utilized are much harder than standing peacefully in front of a mountaintop.
Business is easily my weakness. I could create all day long. Whether that’s running around town taking photos all day or sitting down and writing, creating is where I feel the most confident. Anything business related makes me immediately get nervous and has me checking my bank accounts. (Read: recovering borderline shopaholic over here.)
Slowly over the last few months I’ve been getting my un-business like mind in order. And stepping into better girl boss shoes. While everyone has their own ways of growing I love keeping simple sayings like these to help move into becoming a better girl boss.
