I'm a writer. I'm a social media nerd. And I'm happy you're here!

My name is Kiersten, Kes for short, and I'm a 24 year-old living in Brooklyn, NY. I live with my husband Oliver, who composes music over at NYU. We basically live in a shoebox, try to budget like crazy, and on the hunt for the best homemade mac & cheese.

Right now I'm a Lifestyle Writer for Bustle and a Social Media Specialist for Hearst. In the past I've worked on staff with, Michigan Avenue Magazine, The DePaulia, and helped develop 14 East Magazine - a new online magazine through DePaul University.

In my free time I like to use this online space as a way to teach others how to live minimally & healthfully. I offer a weekly meal plan service, teach others how to cook, and show my tips on minimal living. I drink coffee a lot, and currently trying to see how many historical fiction novels I can fit in the 2017 PopSugar Reading Challenge. Thanks for visiting!
