Hi There! I'm Kim. Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the inter-web.  I am a 20 30-something gal who loves fashion, design & travel. Who doesn't?!?!  I currently live in Long Beach, CA but was born in Michigan and lived on the island of Kauai (Hawaii) for most of my childhood.  Then I moved to Washington State for college, my husband and I just did a 3 year stint in Charlotte, NC while he finished up his PhD and we just moved to California. So far so good! 

One of my current obsessions is Instagram (@thevintagemodern). You can find me scrolling through photos first thing in the morning, with one eye cracked open. My favorite day of the week is Friday. and if I could only do one thing in life it would be to travel. So far, my favorite places we have traveled to are Iceland and Italy but I hope to add many more to my list.

Happy Reading, 


  1. Hi Kim! Thanks for joining the Instagram hop (I love following you there, and I'm glad to jump over here to check out your blog as well!) I'm actually from Charlotte (I grew up in Matthews), and of course don't live that far away now (just in Asheville). Yay for all your travels! xo

  2. Hey girl! Nice to "meet" you! I have a fun/cool blogging opportunity for other local Charlotte bloggers that I'd like to extend to you. I couldn't find an email address for you, so if you'd be interested let's chat via email (hodgespodgesblog (at) gmail (dot) com)!

  3. Hi Kimberly,

    I'm working with a start-up for food bloggers in Washington called Tabelog (www.tabelog.us). They're a subsidiary of the largest company in Japan, Tabelog.com (similar to Yelp here in the US).
    We’re bringing their annual restaurant awards to the US that are judged solely by a panel of local food bloggers (all online). The winning restaurants get a framed 2015 award and the food bloggers get an 'official judge' icons and related PR for their blog. We’re looking for bloggers from Washington to invite as an official judge. Is this something that you would be interested in? My contact email is awards_washington@tabelog.us.
    Thanks in advance!
