A true California girl at heart. I was born and raised in southern California (Long Beach to be exact), then found my way up the coast to sunny San Luis Obispo where I attended Cal Poly SLO, became a certified yoga instructor, and worked at a software company for a few years. I've recently moved further north and now reside in the Outer Sunset district of San Francisco. Some of my favorite things to do include practicing yoga, hiking with my boys (boyfriend & German Shepherd, Zeus) and attempting to keep up with this blog. The majority of my posts are focused on food and fitness, but you’ll find a bit of style and travel inspiration sprinkled throughout too. As I like to say, I'm a Libra so naturally, it's all about balance!
I started this blog as a creative outlet for myself, and hope that it inspires others to explore new places, try new things, and fall in love with life. And if you were curious about the name, Take Off Your Party Dress? It's a line from one of my all time favorite songs, Alison by Elvis Costello.
