I'm Kelsey! The writer,  photographer and travel lover behind this lifestyle blog. Here we celebrate the beauty of  balance in everyday life, without the requirement of real pants.  And cheese plates. Always cheese plates.

Ok first thing first I don’t really consider myself to be all that great of a blogger.  I think I identify with photography much more than I do blogging! That being said I do love the community in blogging.  And I’ve been lucky enough to work with some of my favorite dream brands over the […]


Needless to say photography has turned into one of my biggest passions. It has become the one thing I feel like I spend the majority of my time and money on.  I’m luck enough to start making money off of it, but for a long time it was just something I loved.   Something I devoted […]

(Read: recovering borderline shopaholic over here.) Slowly […]


Dress || Purse 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 […]


Shopruche Dress || Gigi Pip Hat I wrote this post quite awhile ago and I wanted to give it a bit of an update.  With a couple years of photography under my belt my learning curve has sky rocketed.  Thanks to endless videos of watching other photographers edit and even sweet friend Megan always offering me tidbits that […]
