LIFE OF BLONDETTE - ENTREPRENEURS + FITNESS INFLUENCERS

Posted on

MEET LIFE OF BLONDETTE: Best friends for over 10 years, these babes are on a mission to inspire like-minded individuals to lead a healthy, balanced lifestyle. In 2008, Kirsten and Ashley were both going through a difficult time in their lives and began working out and catching up over coffee together every morning. Through this daily routine, they found the strength and clarity they were both craving. Their relationship evolved into creating the blog Life of Blondette, where they now share their favorite recipes, workouts, and the latest cafes and fitness studios they are checking out. Through Life of Blondette, they hope to create a community of people who can inspire and support one another.

Tell us about a time where you were faced with a situation that you could have been unkind, but chose to be a babe instead? 

In a workout class, we had a real sourpuss who “claimed” we were in her spot (there were no assigned spots).

She must have been having a bad morning…  – Ashley & Kirsten
