hi & welcome to my little space!
Brewed Blonde came about in summer of 2017 due to my inability to decide or focus on one “profession” in life (hey, I’m being honest here!)
I’m a firm believer that if multiple things interest you – do multiple things. I have grown tired of hearing people tell me to stick to a certain career because it is what we are “supposed” to do.
I am a personal trainer who works in a PT clinic, but I also have a passion for looking cute, writing & helping other women! And I have FINALLY accepted & embraced that.
My husband, close friends & family love me for my ambition & desire to follow my passions, & to me, that’s the most important motivation.
I love multi-tasking (& like to think that I am good at it), so welcome to a blog that includes a bit of everything, but that’s what makes it mine!
As someone that has always been “too mature” & has always stuck to the plan, I am allowing myself the chance to be a little less organized, a little more chaotic & a bit more care free.
I’ve been known as @shredbeforeyouwed for the past 3 years & although it is still a part of me (& still exists! <3), it isn’t the full me.
So, welcome to Brewed Blonde – brewed together it is everything lifestyle, fitness & fashion!
In other words, everything Helen!
My husband, Tylor, & I have 3 dogs. We love anything that involves the outdoors & seasons & document our adventures on our blog Where the Leashes End. Yes, another blog 😉
I graduated college in 2014 with a Bachelors in Kinesiology.
I am from San Diego, CA but in 2016, my husband (then fiancé) & I made a move to his home state of Oregon. I have surprised myself & fallen in love with the adventure & free spirit of Central Oregon.
I have always loved writing (I was the Editor-in-Chief of my high school newspaper) & so this blog is my creative outlet to embrace my inner nerd.
I’m low key addicted to coffee (duh) & am obsessed with wine. I prefer Rose & a Pinot Gris in the summer & a good Merlot in the winter.
I enjoy summer, but secretly am now in love with snow (shh don’t tell Tylor;) & count down the days for winter snuggles by the fire with a hot buttered rum in hand. I guess I was never meant to live in San Diego forever, hah!
My favorite attire comes from Lululemon, Alo Yoga, Free People, Nordstrom & Lulus – all the expensive things which is why my closet is so small! Hah!
I want my creative spirit to flow & I hope you guys enjoy this space!
xoxo – BB
