Hi friends! Welcome to Balanced Miss Bailey - I'm so glad you're here. As you can guess, my name is Bailey. I'm a 30-something year old living right outside of Washington, D.C. with my husband, dog (Lacey) and the newest addition to our family in January 2022, our daughter Eleanor.
Let me share a bit about myself! Several years ago, I started my Instagram to document my journey onto a healthier lifestyle. I was at my highest weight, and more importantly than the number, I wasn't feeling great in my skin. With the help of Weight Watchers, I lost 85 pounds and felt amazing. A few too many tacos and margaritas and years later, I'm certainly not 85 pounds down, but my perspective has changed - I no longer have the same thoughts and feelings about my body. I am on a constant journey to feel as good about myself as I can physically, but I've also learned that my mental health will always come first, and happy hours with friends and Friday night pizzas will always be worth a few extra pounds.
Fast forward several years, and my Instagram has evolved in many ways. While I still follow WW and look forward to continue sharing healthy (and not-so-healthy) recipes and cocktails, you'll see much more than food in this space! I'll be using this blog to share what I'm learning as a new mom, my travel itineraries, fashion and beauty, home decor, and more.
You'll mostly find me exploring a new coffee shop or drinking iced coffee with oat milk on my back deck, planning trips and traveling, going hiking with my golden retriever Lacey, tackling home projects, at Penn State football games with my husband Charlie (where we met!), petting every dog I pass on the street, listening to Taylor Swift, eating tacos, gardening, and more.
