Hello & Welcome! I’m Kimi Avila – the chronic overthinker, coffee & matcha drinker, kid-at-heart, gluten free foodie…and yes, thought maker & picture taker of this site!
Here you will find me celebrating all the bits of life as a work at home wife and mom of 3 (one plus twins), sharing my passions for healthy living & creativity, and expressing my HSP INFJ heart on life and love and everything in between.
A Little More about Me:
I have a deep love and appreciation for nature and the arts (Yep, I’m one of those crazy plant ladies). I believe strongly in kindness, compassion, creativity & gratitude: these are some basic pillars I want to instill in my kids. When I’m not working, chances are I’m researching my latest obsession (I’m a perpetual learner), cooking up something equal parts tasty and healthy, or still in my pj’s crafting &/or having dance parties with my kids in our living room 😉 . I was born and raised in Northern California where I worked as a barista for 5 years, and a commercial artist & letterer for 8. Now I am working from home doing product photography & imaging, and also running my illustrative design business where I specialize in handlettering, chalk art and custom design work.
My goal for this blog is, and always has been, to share my heart with you. Whether it be my feelings on motherhood, living with anxiety & asthma or life in general, to my favorite recipes, crafts & products, DIYs, or must-have lists: all opinions and thoughts on this blog are 100% me. Some of these posts may be sponsored ( meaning I was gifted a product/experience or paid to share with you), and that will always be disclosed in the post. While I do share some of these things in partnership with certain brands, I will only share products or services with you that I myself actually use and love. There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes of these posts and photos, and many products and brands that don’t ever make the cut because I either don’t believe in them, they don’t fit my personal values, or they just aren’t something I feel would benefit you guys. I hope this helps with any questions about the topic of sponsored content, but if you have any other questions, please reach out and ask! I’m always happy to help!
