Loving: I’m refraining from saying these slides so someone doesn’t reach through their computer screen and slap me saying “WE GET IT KAHLA! YOU LOVE THEM.” Instead, I’ll say these over the knee boots that (let’s be honest) I’ll probably only get to wear one time this year. Ya know, because Florida. But they’re still just gorgeous in person and their my first pair of OTKs so excuse me for being excited.
Feeling: READY FOR VACAY. Ben and I are heading on vacation next week! It’ll be the first one this with just us two, so the quality time will be nice. We’re staycationing at the Opal Sands on Clearwater Beach. I’m really looking forward to the sun, sand, and some much needed down time.
Watching: We just wrapped up Friends From College and loved it. It’s a short series with only eight episodes so far. I feel like I related to each one of the characters at some point – which are all hilarious by the way. After flying through those episodes, Ben and I picked up Ozark on Netflix starring Jason Bateman. We’re three episodes deep and I’m hooked, but I can’t tell if it’s because I love Jason Bateman or if the show is actually that good. Hoping both.
Listening to: Bleachers! Are you a fan? I am so pumped because we bought tickets to see them when they come to St. Pete in September. I’ve never seen them live, but I’ve been a fan of their music for a couple of years now. This is way overdue.
Eating: Ben and I have been trying out Blue Apron for the past two weeks. Our friends Aaron and Jenny gave us a code to get our first week of meals free and it went surprisingly well. While cooking the meals there are a ton of dishes used, and a lot of prep time but the end results for dinner were actually pretty tasty. I accidentally cancelled too late to opt out for Blue Apron to charge us for a second week, so we got looped into another round of meals. I reached out to their customer service about it to explain what happened and they were incredibly helpful. They refunded me my money after I explained the situation, but since our second week of meals had already been shipped out we were still getting them either way. No complaints here. Ben and I were happy to try another few meals from them, especially for free.
Recommending: I’ve had a handful of cool collaborations come through Keeping Up with Kahla recently, and one of them was with the company Yes To. I had the opportunity to try out a few of their products, and I can’t say enough great things about this grapefruit single use mud mask. It helps brighten up your skin while minimizing pores. I’m also a fan of their charcoal mud mask which helps remove impurities from your skin. I can’t wait to try out the rest of what they’ve sent me and tell you guys alllllll about it.
What have you all been up to recently? Let me know in the comments.
Down for a round of shots 🍏🍇🍉🍊🍋? UM YES [ad]. @bigeasybucha’s cute little organic juice shots are now on the shelves at @publix. They go down so smooooooth and pack a powerful punch of the good stuff 🌿. Have you tried them yet? I love the Beauty one. 🥰 #drinkeasy #stayjuicy #publix #bigeasybucha @publix @bigeasybucha...
Growing up, I never had a pool in my backyard. Did you? Now I can’t imagine owning a house that doesn’t have one for a number of reasons: it’s perfect for when we’re hosting social events (not that we’re doing MUCH of that lately) 💦, I can sneak in a quick swim to close up my Apple rings 🏊🏻♀️, when Ben and I need downtime we just grab floats (usually my giant avocado 🥑 or a cute floatie from @minnidip) and hang poolside all day with a #summertime playlist 🎶. http://liketk.it/2S69Q #liketkit @liketoknow.it #StayHomeWithLTK #LTKswim #LTKhome #panamahat #poolfloats #amazonfinds #minnidip #clearwaterflorida #loveFL #weekendsathome...
Go big or go foam 🧼 #ad @geloclean hand soap literally makes me feel like I’m conducting science experiments in my bathroom 🤪. You just fill up the @geloclean bottle with water, drop your pods in, let them work their magic, and BOOM BOTTLE OF HAND SOAP. 💛 #gelohandsoap #tampablogger #clearwaterflorida #yellow...
One thing I really love doing when I’m overwhelmed or when I feel like my anxiety is all over the place is put on a ~feel good movie~ to watch 🍿. You know the ones - happy soundtracks, perfect lighting, usually based in a hustling, bustling city covering some form of love story or wanderlust plot line 🌃. They just HELP me reel it back in, ya know? What are some of your favorite feel good movies? I’m putting together a blog post of mine and would love to include some of your recs. 🤩 http://liketk.it/2RXch #liketkit @liketoknow.it #StayHomeWithLTK #LTKhome #LTKunder50 #sheinGALS #sheinUS #loungewear #targetstyle #joggers #lounge...
What you’ll find in my fanny pack during a long bike ride 🚲:⠀
Hand sanitizer - no question 🧼. Usually Ben and I bike to a destination where we might grab a quick bite so hand sanitizer is a must. It’s also essential for when I’m reaching for my snacks (below) during our ride. I LOVE the cute, yummy-smelling ones from @bathandbodyworks. ⠀
Chapstick. @mycarmex is my ride (literally 🚲) or die. ⠀
Something to snack on. I’m always grabbing for almonds or a mini @clifbar (the perfect size!!) to bring along. 🥜 ⠀
ID & a credit card 💳. I ditch the full on bulky wallet and only bring the essentials. Most times I can just use Apple Pay if I need to buy something. This is incredibly convenient since we all know I never leave home without my #AppleWatch on my wrist. #closetherings⠀
What are your essentials for a long bike ride 🚲? The less the better in my opinion, especially since I have to fit it all in a fanny. 🤪⠀

Ben and I are planning to do brunch at home this weekend and I’m already excited 😍 are you team mimosa 🍊 or Bloody Mary 🍅? I’m usually a Bloody Mary gal, but it seemed plain rude to decline a mimosa the size of my head. 🤯 #bangersaustin #austintexas #iloveATX #mimosa #mimosas #brunch http://liketk.it/2R7zC #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKunder100 #LTKstyletip #LTKtravel #bellsleeves #fponme #freepeople...
Happy Father’s Day dad 😘 I know the best gift I can give you is staying on top of checking the oil in my car 🚗.
