Vine Princess

Hello! I’m Kirstie (“Keer – stee”) — a Southern California girl, raised on salt water, sunshine and a splash of that infamous LA traffic. When I’m not snuggling with my 3 fat French Bulldogs or snacking my way through Disneyland, you can probably find me:

  • Bullet journaling and scrapbooking (it’s cheaper than therapy)
  • Kicking butt at Mario Kart
  • Obsessively re-watching every season of The Office on Netflix
  • Spending too much money at coffee shops
  • Planning bucket list trips to every Disney Park in the world

Most of all, I have a passion for new places, new experiences, and the adventure of travel. I started this blog in the summer of 2015, when I quit my marketing job in Los Angeles to do just that: explore my heart out and see the world.

In an attempt to breathe some crazy into a life of routine, I moved to the tiny country of Denmark and began graduate school at the University of Copenhagen. I spent a year living in the rainy Danish capital, learning the ins and outs of an entirely new-to-me culture, and traveling all over Europe. It was amazing experience, filled with all sorts of ups, downs, and squiggly little learning curves. One year later, I said goodbye to Denmark and moved back home to the States to finish up my thesis.

I’m back in California now, living in sunny Manhattan Beach & chasing more adventures on this side of the Atlantic.




    1. I got my bachelor’s degree at UCLA in Communication studies, and then worked in marketing for a couple years before going back for my master’s degree in Cognitive Science. I don’t work for Disney; I’m just a girl with an Annual Pass and a major itch to visit all the Disney Parks in the world.

  1. Wow that’s so fascinating. The pictures you post on IG legitimately led me to believe that you worked at Disney. Which is your favorite Disney park so far?


  2. Can you tell me a little bit more about bullet journaling??? I’ve seen in your ig stories and this SoCal girl wants to get started, too:) thanks, Emily ig: thecoffeeandclassteacher
