Gettin’ Balanced with Jordan Younger: The Balanced Blonde

   Jordan Younger. Where do I even begin with this woman?! Blogger. Author. Clothing Designer. Yogi master. Podcaster. Recipe queen. Cat mama. Free spirit. She literally does everything, and she’s created an empire. As many of you know, I was Jordan’s intern/assistant until this past September when fall quarter at UCLA started up again, so Jordan and I have quite the history. Being a blogger’s assistant is a very unique experience. It’s definitely unlike any other job – do you get to go to a private Nick Jonas concert when you go to work?! Every day is different, and every day is exciting. You…

Chillin’ with a Chickpea in the City: Addie Martanovic

So you know how I like to feature lovely humans? Well, this week I’m featuring a lovely chickpea! LOL. Okay, but seriously. I’m obsessed with this girl. Remember when Instagram added Instagram stories and the whole world freaked out and none of us knew what to do? Like, should we use these? Do we like them? At first I wasn’t really sure what to do about them either, but what I did like about Instagram Stories was the fact that I was finally seeing the faces and personalities behind so many of the food accounts that I loved. Before, I…

Podcasts You Should Be Listening To

We all know I’m obsessed with podcasts, and I get asked all the time what my favorite podcasts are. This question overwhelms me because there are SO MANY. Most of my favorite podcasts are in three categories: nerdy health/science, lifestyle/pop culture, and self-help/self-love. A lot of people still haven’t hopped on the podcast hype, and I think it’s because they don’t realize how many podcasts are out there. There’s something for everyone. And they’re free! There are podcasts about health, fitness, pop culture, sports, science, life, television, murder mysteries….EVERYTHING. Podcasts are the best because they’re perfect for multi-tasking. I listen while I cook, clean, browse social…

Kalein It with Kate Van Horn

There’s nothin’ I love more than a good pun. And there’s DEFINITELY nothing I love more than a blog with a punny name, written by a woman who is so incredibly inspiring it kind of physically hurts. This week I’m featuring a blogger babe I’ve admired for a long long LONG time – Kate Van Horn from Kalein It! (Moment of silence for her blog’s name. I’m obsessed.) How gorgeous is she?! If you’re not already following Kate’s blog and Instagram, you’re SERIOUSLY missing out. I first found Kate through Instagram (typical), and was immediately captivated by her charm, positivity,…
