Hi everyone and welcome to thirty-ish. We’re so glad you found us! We’re Jen and Kelsey, two friends who decided we needed a creative outlet from our day to day 9-5’s, so we began this blog. We’ve been friends since elementary school and while we couldn’t be more opposite at first glance, but we have so many similarities, one of them being that we love to shop. We LOVE a good bargain.
While you’ll be able to find affordable everyday fashion, home décor, recipes, beauty routines and travel guides, we also want this to become a community for all women, a roundtable discussion have you. Let’s face it, life can get the best of us at times and we forget that we’re not the only ones struggling. We’re 30-ish. Sometimes we feel 30 in a 70 year old’s body and other times we stop ourselves from saying we’re 25 when asked our age. No matter what age you are, we’re here to find common ground. We don’t want to limit this blog. Health struggles, relationships, the good, the bad, the ugly…it will all be discussed! We hope you can find comfort, humor and most importantly, 2 new friends!
LET US INTRODUCE OURSELVES
Hi ladies! My name is Kelsey and I was born and raised in Massachusetts. While I get excited the second I see any big red clearance sign, you can typically find me posted up at home strategically planning future travel while binge watching Bravo, The Office or Friends reruns.
Both of my parents were heavy travelers in their 20s and 30s, so naturally, I followed suit. I’ve always had the urge to travel near and far, experience other cultures and cuisines. In 2014 I packed my bags and decided to work on a cruise ship. Yup, that’s right, I worked and lived on a cruise ship. Ship life is not for the weak, but I made so many incredible friends from all around the world and I’m grateful for each and every one of them. The stories are endless, but that’s for another day/post.
I pride myself on being honest, brutally honest (for better for worse) and I don’t sugarcoat anything. If I don’t like something, I won’t waste your time. If I love something, I’ll happily spread the word! I look forward to getting to chat with all of you!
My name is Jennifer and I joined the 30+ club last May. So far I am feeling flirty, fabulous and thriving. I am coming up on being married for 1 year in the fall. Being a newlywed has been fun, busy and educational. We learned to live with each other, adjust to lifestyles and joined families. We have been together for quite some time, but marriage and living together really made us feel complete.
This year I also became a Dog Mom to Lexi Mae; a Beautiful Russian rescue. We think she is a predominantly pointer and Shepherd mix. She is a curious, 40 pound lap dog, who loves being held and having her nose rubbed. Overall she is a complete bundle of joy. Her favorite treat is ice cream, especially with Auntie Kelsey comes to visit. I am new to the Dog World, I was not really brought up with them and I never considered myself a dog person. Lexi Mae has taught me responsibility, unconditional love from animals and how much she depends on my Husband and I to take care of her. She is slowing realizing that we not only are providing food and shelter, but love and a family.
In my personal time, I enjoy watching the Bachelor series, my husband and I are finishing up Breaking Bad! and This is Us. I enjoy cleaning my house and being outside. I am trying to get into cooking and meal prepping (baby steps!)
My two favorite places are Disney World and the Beach. Disney has always had a special place in my heart too and a large part of my life. I even was a part of the Disney College Program. More about my Disney love will absolutely be included in my future write ups.
