Welcome! I am so excited to have you here! I’m Keating and I’m the woman behind the blog. I’m a mommy blogger, lifestyle photographer, military wife, mommy to an adorable little girl,

I am Maine raised, but am currently learning to navigate Southern California with my husband, daughter, and fur baby until summer 2018. We then plan to move back to Maine to be closer to family and friends, buy a house and officially settle down long term.

I’m a graduate of Southern New Hampshire University where I earned my BA in Communications and Public Relations. I also have an AS in Business with a concentration in Marketing and am now working towards my MA in Sport Management. Try saying all that five times fast!

Rather than pursuing a typical 9-5, I’ve been very fortunate to have been able to turn this amazing blog into my full-time job. Between my husband’s job taking us all over the country and being a new mom, I absolutely needed something more flexible. I wanted to have the time to dedicate to my family and blogging gives me that!


I first started blogging back in early 2014, shortly after I got married. I had just moved to North Carolina to be with my husband and wanted an easy way to keep our family and friends back home updated on our life.  My blog started out as High Heels and Combat Boots and was focused around our military lifestyle. As a brand new military spouse, it was a great way for me to make connections in the blogging and military communities. I loved having the added support of those who truly understood this challenging lifestyle and everything I was going through. My readers were there for me through so many big life changes and I couldn’t have been more thankful for that.

My blog has since grown into a life and wellness blog with a focus on motherhood, health and fitness, marriage, beauty hacks, our everyday life and so much more. I take pride in creating an authentic and supportive community focused on inspiring my readers to live a happy, healthy and balanced lifestyle. I want to provide modern moms with the resources and support needed to take on their day.

In addition to loving my readers, I’m also completely in love with influencer marketing and working with amazing brands. I’ve worked with brands like Target, TRESemme, Jergens, John Frieda, Davids Bridal and many more. It makes me so happy to have been able to build my own business and I couldn’t be more in love with what I do.
