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.
In some ways I almost didn’t want to write this post. It seemed as though I was trying tackle the holy grail of beauty blogging and opting for the ultimate click bait. Still. I have a few tricks up my sleeves to help fit my love for skincare + beauty products into a smaller budget. And I figured everyone should know about. Whether you use them or not is up to you!
Well we are officially in Montana! And while I already am little impressed with our new state’s beauty, I’ve been missing my finished closet back in Laramie. L finished this brick + copper beauty one weekend before we moved and I so wish I had more time with the new set up… but I also know our friends who bought our home will appreciate it even more. So it’s a win-win.
I’ve been thinking about my well loved wardrobe a lot lately because with a trip to Mexico this Friday I have been t h i s close to buying an entire new wardrobe. I mean in my defense I can hardly use any of my sweaters in Mexico, but I’m so proud my well loved wardrobe essentials will get me through an entire tropical vacation! Though I have yet to really mention much about what it takes to maintain such a wardrobe. While it certainly does take the age old adage of “investing in quality” it’s minding the quality and keeping that quality freshly stocked that keeps your well loved wardrobe… well loved.
I’m really not much of a cocktail person. My effort for some refreshing drinks typically ends at opening a bottle of wine or finding a good whiskey to sip on at the end of the day. But there is something about summer that makes me want to try a little bit harder. Or maybe not give up as easily.
Plus, rosé and grapefruit are some of my two favorite things!
I always seem to have rosé on hand in the summers and after cutting my grapefruit in half the other day I couldn’t help but dream of the goodness of pink grapefruit rosé sangria.
I’m jumping ahead quite a bit with this post. Actually 9 days to be exact. My birthday isn’t until the 18th, but with all that’s going on I was so worried this would become yet another forgotten about post. (I swear that keeps happening to me!) With a big move and then a trip out of the country within two weeks, I’m feeling the pressure to say the least.
And rather than sitting on the floor with Zeus laying in my lap whilst I think about all the “What if’s,” I want to stay positive and look at all the things 27 years has taught me.
I’m finding out that it takes me quite a long time to commit to buying products. I always, always have a wish list going, but I rarely ‘pull the trigger’ and hit checkout. So it always surprises me when I find a few products I didn’t have on my radar. They are typically Birchbox samples, but sometimes they products my friends mention, I try theirs out and I’m hooked!

Between my ultra calm dog and hyper (border line neurotic) kitty my house is a bit chaotic on a day to day basis. L is always bugging me to take videos as he claims we could have been a Youtube sensation months ago. I think he is a bit optimistic, but it is really quite entertaining.
My little kitty Finnick is constantly sprinting up and down the stairs, while my large 90 pound pup Zeus, tries to stay out of his way, as cuddling is more his speed than wrestling. Still… there are a couple tricks and things that helps Finnick calm down… or advert his attention from stair sprints. Any empty cardboard box would do the trick for Fin, though make it a bit hard for us to live our lives. So I love when I can find normal, heck even cute items for our home, that have actually help Finny be a healthy (and very active!) kitty.
