ABOUT


Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm Chelsea and I've been blogging here at Tea Talk since June of 2009. I'm 27 years old and grew up in the heart of the desert in Phoenix, Arizona. I'm a wife, influencer marketing professional, coffee connoisseur, and downtown Phoenix supporter. I married my sweetheart of 9+ years on January 18th, 2014! I spend my days blogging, going on adventures with my husband, Scott, sipping on iced coffee, playing with our two pups and kitties, Piper, Scout, Boots and Peter, and also spending time on our 10-acre orchard in the outskirts of Phoenix. I'm passionate about my local community, social media, influencer marketing, being a pinfluencer and encouraging others to follow their dreams. This blog is where I share my personal style, our adventures and daily life. Enjoy!
