Welcome to Beach Blonde!
I’m so excited to share my top two passions, as well as some of my other interests, with you! Beach Blonde is all about helping you make your life more earth friendly and your beauty and cleaning routines cruelty-free, in addition to happy and healthy.
A little about me…
I’ve grown up in the Pacific Northwest (the Greater Seattle area, to be more specific) my whole life. Living close to the water and going to the beach regularly with my mom and brother as a kid fueled my interest and love for the marine environment; so much so that I ended up majoring in oceanography and minoring in marine biology. Environmentally-speaking, my greatest passion is centered around the issue of marine debris, ocean plastics. My senior thesis research focused on microplastics (0.3-0.5 mm in size) and after finding plastics on every single beach that I sampled, am astounded by how huge a problem plastic pollution in our community is. If you’d like to know more about my research, or just want to talk marine debris, I’d love to chat!
In my spare time I love to workout by doing yoga, barre, running, or swimming; try new recipes, makeup looks, or hairstyles; style outfits; explore new places to grab a bite or drink; and go to the beach (when its actually nice out haha). I am also a notorious recycler and love to organize anything and everything, even if its just for fun.
Thanks for stopping by Beach Blonde, and I hope you find something you like!
