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.
I’ve been wanting to start this series for quite some time now. Though with all the traveling it’s been another item quickly moved to the back burner. But no more!
I’ve been such a big fan of Kate La Vie’s version of this type of post because with all that is going on in the world a couple of feel goods sounds quite nice. I totally believe in being informed and watching the news, but I’ve started to notice the finger pointing is at all time high. And rather than focusing on the negatives, I want to celebrate the good things that often don’t make headline news.
Oh hello! After taking a week off last week I’m excited to be back on a more regular schedule. Don’t get me wrong. Sipping wine on the beach and traveling with L are some of my favorite things… but I’m a routine girl. I like having my weeks planned out and after working an 8 to 5 job for four years… I felt odd. And jumping right back into makeup and cute hairstyles felt even more odd. So I figured I would just share some more snaps of some of my favorite Southern towns.
I’m quite the sucker for any weathered brick covered in vines and flowers (who isn’t?), which means the South always seems like a bit of heaven on earth. It’s littered with alleys lined with blooming trees and the details on the buildings would get any Fixer Upper fan excited. So when my family makes our way down to Gulf Shores I always get a bit excited about the chance to explore the quaint towns.
I know what you are thinking. We are quite past June now.. whoops! I honestly didn’t even think about it being a new month til yesterday. Double whoops. With all the moving and vacationing that’s been going on in my world I haven’t really been paying much attention to dates and much more to to-do lists. Move to Montana – check! Fly to Mexico – check! Don’t forget passport – check!
You get the point.
But with all that’s going I feel as I’ve been just talking at you, rather than sitting down and talking with you. So let’s grab a glass and chat!
Summer is easily my favorite season. Birthdays, reunions, and beach weeks it’s the time of year I always find myself dreaming of. Plus, it’s the season no one thinks twice about dinner parties and agrees on cheese + wine being a complete meal. Whether it’s the homemade desserts that are memorable or the wines that I always go back to there a few key pieces for a unforgettable summer party.
I was planning on saving my travel guide to Cabo San Lucas for another day, but I find myself already missing the plant covered downtown hotel we stayed in.
Though I should warn you… I really wasn’t a big fan of Cabo. Which I think is the first place I haven’t just completely gushed about on here. Or will urge you to visit asap. Which is probably a bit unfair.
This trip found us at an awkward time with only five days in Montana, where we were taking items out of moving boxes and putting them into suitcases. It was weird. So we didn’t really have time to map out the vacation of our dreams and to blame a lack luster vacation on the location alone isn’t totally fair.
Though a night at a family owned hotel downtown, helped turn into a much dreamier vacation then it first felt like.
It feels so good to be back here clacking away. I completely meant to blog while we were on vacation in Mexico but the move to a new state threw me for quite a loop! We didn’t have a dishwasher or stove in our apartment in Montana and were living in a sea of boxes, all while packing our bags for a vacation. It felt so odd.
And it felt even weirder trying to pack my well loved closet into a suitcase destined for 85 degree heat.
My impressive collection of sweaters I knew would do little good on the beach. Though rather than buy everything I had sitting in my Asos shopping cart… I slowed down. And started to pick out pieces that would cut it in the heat and only invest in what I truly needed.
