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.
The more I dive into photography the more I realize just how much I tweak my favorite Mastin presets. When I first started out blogging I was on the hunt for a Lightroom preset that was going to give me exactly what I want. And it wasn’t too quickly that I learned there simply isn’t one. Which is a good thing! No photographer, blogger or creative should ever depend on a preset so heavily. Otherwise we all become one big blob of same-ness and let’s face it – I seriously doubt there is one that could make all of us completely happy.
That being said there are some consistent tweaks I make in Lightroom for my photos for my coveted Mastin Labs Presets.

Beauty routines are much more than the makeup we wear. It’s the solid base that gives our foundation and cream blush that extra something. And rather than slathering on layer after layer of high dollar products, an intentional routine that gives beauty inside a n d out is the best way to go. No confusing directions needed.
Just simple commitments that anyone can do no matter what brands they believe in!
It’s been so long since I added to this series. I certainly believe in being informed about what’s going on in the world, but let’s just be honest – this isn’t the website for hard hitting news. And rather than always droning on and on about skincare bits (like pick a bottle already Kelsey 😉 ), you can share these stories or let them simply brighten your day.
Having ultra sensitive, fussy acne prone skin is hardly anything to brag about. And it makes going bare skinned at times… daunting.
So after a month of using PMD I’m excited (nervously so) debuting makeup free skin. Their personal microderm tool seemed to give my skin a complete 180. My uneven skin tone, breakouts and black heads have started to disappear right in front of me . The crazy thing? It’s week four and supposedly it gets even better from here.
I feel as if I am unable to start a Peach Parities post without mentioning just how crazy it is that we are on another month… so let’s not break that streak. How. Is. It. November. It feels as if I every time I log on here I am writing up another one of these bad boys. Of course that’s simply not true, but the feeling is definitely true!
So here we go. Bullet points of this whirlwind month!
I feel as if you could use one word to sum up the homes in my life it would be: quirky. My first home that I had through college was the definition of quirky. It’s charming brick chimney and open closet design was often drowned out by the slanting floors or horribly placed light switches. Our new apartment suffers from some of the same quirkiness. The lofted bedroom with slanted ceilings and spiral staircase are so quaint, but the outdated bits + super small upstairs shower makes it a touch awkward.
There is nothing like the challenge of finding home decor for these spots. It takes much more creativity than a simple couch or chair for our unique spaces.
