nordstrom rack reno

Last week I had the chance to go check out Reno’s local Nordstrom Rack store after being invited to by the staff. Over on my @abbeykayblog Instagram account I took you all on a tour of the store via my Instagram Stories & it was so much fun. I’ve shopped at this location before a…

monday morning encouragement: more body love

I don’t ever remember a time when my pant size was less than double digits. When all of my friends in middle school & high school were wearing hip hugging jeans, I was wearing stretchy denim pants that were high waisted. I was okay wearing pants that weren’t “in” so that I could feel comfortable…

monday morning encouragement:

Self-doubt. It’s totally the elephant in the room today. At least for me it has been. It’s the reason that I’ve written & re-written what to say about six times already. It’s made me second guess every single idea I’ve thought was good. It made me hit delete, delete, delete on my all of my…

macy’s + levi’s

Fall is my most favorite time of the year. It’s a time of change on so many levels. The colors are vibrant, the weather gets colder, & we switch up our wardrobe to accommodate both. I’m so excited to announce that this fall I’ve teamed up with Macy’s to promote their exclusive Levi’s Wildflower Collection. It’s a limited…

monday morning encouragement: it’s revival time

I’ve sat here thinking about what to write for quite some time. I wanted the topic that brought this series back to be something profound. I wanted it to be some sort of word explosion that had everybody at the edge of their seats & begging for more. I’m not sure if I’ll have the…

abbey kay + soapbox soaps

Hey guys! Can you believe that it’s already fall? Time has flown by this year & I have so many things coming up to share with you all. First up is an intro to this rad brand called Soapbox Soaps. A few week ago they sent me a few of their products to try out &…

create like dre

Two men from two different worlds on opposite coasts that I had known pretty much nothing about suddenly had me guessing how & why their stories mattered to their combined one point of relevance; music.

last year’s trip to las vegas

Last May I took a trip down to Las Vegas to visit my brother. He showed me coffee shops, the desert, restaurants, & parts of Vegas that I never knew existed. I’m heading there again this week & thought I’d finally share my photos from last year’s trip. I had so much fun, & truly…

12 months of rae

Today my niece turns 1 year old! I can’t believe it’s already time for us to celebrate her first birthday. This year has honestly come & gone so fast. I can remember the day she was born so vividly as if it literally happened yesterday. I documented the day  from beginning to end & shared it…

celebrating 5 years of blogging

Last week my blog turned five. FIVE! I have no clue how I’ve been doing this for five years already. It seriously blows me away that I have had this space for that long. It’s been a ton of fun, a lot of hard work, a bunch of great opportunities, & quite a bit of…

abbey kay & lemaire photo

Last summer I had the pleasure of doing a photoshoot with a local photographer, Danny Lemaire of Lemaire Photo. I did the shoot to celebrate my blog turning four & I’m just now getting around to sharing the images.  It was such a dream to throw on this summer red romper & head south of…

my dad

My dad is truly one of the greatest gifts in my life. He has always been there for me no matter. Whatever I needed, whatever I dreamed for, whatever I’ve wanted to achieve, he’s been there to supply, support, & help in whatever way I’ve needed. He has been an example of true selfless love…
