The Ocean Minded is one of my favorite bloggers on Instagram. She's real, transparent and shares so much value with her audience. She has the best advice.

With that said, let's dive in deep with The Ocean Minded.

1. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? Give us your whole life story.

I am a 30 year old (very single) girl living in the San Francisco Bay Area in California. When I’m not working, I’m doing something active outdoors, at the beach, sipping on spicy skinny margaritas, on a Bumble date, traveling, wine tasting, writing or reading, online shopping, or taking photos.

2. What do you think your audience comes to you for? 

I’m not your typical influencer that’s constantly pushing products to their audience, so I doubt they’re coming to me for the newest, hottest face wash. I think my content resonates with them because I’m relatable. I’m doing life just like they are, but with cute clothes.

3. What motivated you to go all in on yourself and make a change?

When I graduated college eight years ago I weighed the most I had ever weighed in my life (142lbs at 5’3”), and when I lost 20 pounds I swore I would never let myself get that unhealthy again. In 2019, I was closing in on that post-college weight again. By my 30th birthday in May I knew something had to change, and I had to commit to myself again.

4. What’s your favorite healthy snack?

Right now I’m really into mini sweet peppers, with a little Kite Hill chive almond milk “cream cheese”, and everything but the bagel seasoning.

5. Biggest self-care tip?

I love ice-rolling and following up with a good face mask from the fridge. I also need my nails done every two weeks, my hair done every 8 weeks, Botox every 4-6 months, and a microblading touch up every year.
