Welcome to The Kachet Life!
I’m Kachét, and before we go any further, let’s make sure you’re saying my name right!
It’s pronounced /kaˈSHā/.
It’s a soft sound, like cash. The t is silent. 🙂
I’m a Dallas, Texas blogger, content creator, creative community organizer, and marketing consultant with a passion for inspiring others to live their best lives and pursue their dreams, no matter how big or small.
The Kachet Life is just one of the ways I do so, by creating fashion, lifestyle, travel and personal content for you to connect with during every season of life! I believe in embracing the unexpected and giving convention the middle finger.
How it all began
” My goal with The Lipstick Giraffe is to inspire others to look within themselves and find something that they think is special and worth sharing.” – My first-ever blog post. This still holds true.
I started blogging as The Lipstick Giraffe in 2012. The blog was my creative outlet and a way to connect with others when I returned to my hometown and nabbed my first job after college. Back then, I was all about sharing my personal style and my economized life. Living on my own at 24 with no financial support pushed me to get creative with how I dressed and how I lived! I wanted my readers to believe that they could still live fabulously no matter what.
Before I was all in as an entrepreneur, I worked for ad agencies and in-house on brand marketing teams. I thought it was what I was supposed to do since it’s what I did immediately after graduating from college in 2009, but a layoff five years ago made me really evaluate the direction I was going. It also made me really look at my creative side hustle and its potential to grow into something greater! I harnessed the skills learned after years of working on award-winning teams and launched my marketing consulting business. I really try to become my client’s friend, understand their needs and wishes, while being the firm voice in guiding their decisions! I also use my experience to build up The Kachet Life brand without a coach or staff.
I relaunched my blog as The Kachet Life in October 2017. You can read all about it in this post. The name of the blog might be a little more mature, but I’m still the same lady. I’m starting to feel like the OG blogger…but I’m damn proud of it. 🙂 I love sharing what I know!
When I’m not Hustlin…
When I’m not behind the screen or on a plane, I’m networking with other creatives, enjoying a glass of sparkling wine, watching the latest episode of Chopped, or relaxing at home with my fiancé – or any combination of the previously mentioned. 🙂
Thank you for checking out my labor of love! Kick back and click around a bit.
