Favorite Things

Resources for clients and some of my favorite things and places. Some of the links on this page are affiliate links meaning I get a small commission if you purchase through those links. I only share resources that I love and use.

I used Tone it Up to get in shape for my wedding in 2016 and throughout both of my pregnancies. I love the variety of workouts, the fun upbeat and positive vibe and the familiar coastline scenery of Manhattan Beach, CA, where I used to live.

Tone It Up - Workout App

I have used skincare products religiously since I was 18 or younger. These products are new to my skincare routine but I have noticed immediate results and highly recommend.

Environ Skin Care

Free meditation app, has loads of guided meditations that make it really hard to find an excuse not to mediate.

InsightTimer - Meditation App

My Favorite Self-Care Things

This device is key when traveling with littles who are old enough. I love that you can shut it down remotely from your phone and avoid a power struggle.

Amazon Fire Kid's Tablet Ages 3-7

Can operate via app on your phone. Key for masking noises and recreating a familiar environment for your littles when sleeping somewhere other than home.

Hatch Rest- Nightlight and Sound Machine

Compact and lightweight, the perfect travel stroller and everyday stroller when living in Europe. Fits in the overhead compartment of an airplane, so no need to check it and also is narrow enough to fit down the aisle of the airplane.

Michelle has been doing my hair for over 15 years. When I go home to LA, she is the first person I see. She really is an expert at what she does and I can’t recommend her highly enough. Check her work out on Instagram @ms.beautynbliss. Look closely and you may see me in a before and after pic!

You like my website? Me too. The Lovely Geek is a small woman-owned business, based in Sacramento, California. However, we built my beautiful site 100% remotely. Cristina Robinson the owner and operator truly captured my essence in my branding and was immensely patient with me throughout the entire process.

“Katie truly brought a new perspective to my life. She got me to do some “love soul-searching” and to see things I usually ignore. It is an eye-opening experience through heart centered coaching. Katie is very knowledgeable and tells it like it is in a professional and loving manner. I highly recommend this course to anyone, single or not.”
