My Day In the Life of a Freelancer with Uber!

Whenever I’m asked what my typical day looks like, I’m never quite sure how to answer. Because the truth is, there is no typical day!

Kinsley James Los Angeles Grand Opening Party

My wedding was two weeks ago today. It feels like it was just yesterday—and also like it was a dream that slips through the grasp of my mind the harder I try to hold onto it.

We’re Married!

Last Friday, at approximately 4:30 pm, Ivan and I stood before a hundred of our nearest and dearest and said our wedding vows.
