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 Sacramento, California 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 almost four 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.
The Year that Changed It All
2017 was a big year for me and the community! With my professional background, blogging experience, and travels around the world, I decided to activate the blogging and influencer community in Sacramento by starting The Blog Bloc.
We host monthly events, split into half networking and half education. With over 100 local influencers in our database, we also assist brands with their influencer marketing efforts. I love being able to do this in the town that made me who I am today!
As if that wasn’t enough, a couple of months after turning 30, 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 may 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 – or any combination of the previously mentioned. 🙂
