Hi, I’m Kitty (yep, real name). I’m a wife and new mom to our little girl, Harriet, who’s passionate about creating a beautifully simple life and home from Minneapolis, Minnesota. In 2015, we bought our first home – a 1950s rambler. To put it bluntly, it was ugly. We had to look past the crazy wallpaper (in every room, but one!) to see the place had really good bones and great flow to the space.
Together with my husband, Joel, we start renovating the day we closed on the house and haven’t stopped yet! We’ve kept the vintage charm of our mid-century home and thoughtfully brought it into this century.
I share our process of renovating and decorating our home, along with my simple, sustainable lifestyle, capsule wardrobes, plant-based lifestyle and journey through motherhood.
So, that’s me in a nutshell. Glad you’re here!
What camera do you use?
I use my Canon 6D for most of my photography and sit-down style videos. I have the kit lens and 50mm 1.4. Went I’m on the go vlogging I use my Canon G7X. Everything in between I used my iPhone. I also love my GoPro 4 for wide angle and action shots.
When did you go vegan?
September 2015 and I’ve never looked back! I was vegetarian for several years before going vegan.
What hair products do you use?
I really need to a video dedicated to my hair. I seriously get so many questions about it. I’ll link it here.
Where are your favorite places to find clothes?
Madewell, Levi’s, thrift store, eBay, and Abercrombie & Fitch (yes, I still shop here. lol).
Where are do you find furniture and home decor?
Craigslist, thrift store, West Elm, World Market, Target, Ikea, Home Goods, and Wayfair are some of my favorite spots. When I can’t find what I’m looking for (or it’s out of my budget) I DIY!
