Hi! I’m Angela! I’m a simple thrift loving mama sharing pieces of my life on YouTube and my blog!

I started my blog many years ago as a school project (I majored in journalism) and it’s stuck with me over the years.

Here’s a few fun facts about me:

Angela | Angela's Balanced Life
  • I’m a fitness enthusiast and love weight lifting
  • I enjoy thrifting and buying the majority of my wardrobe secondhand
  • I’m married to a wonderful husband, Jake, and we have a beautiful daughter, Reia
  • I LOVE to travel and can’t wait to do it again (here’s a few places I’ve travel to: Smoky Mountains, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Detroit, Winona, Minnesota)

more about me

I was born and raised in Minnesota, and still live here despite our very cold winters. Minnesota’s beautiful summer and fall months makeup for the winter weather, and all of my family is here. When I’m not working my day job or at the gym, I love spending time with my husband and daughter.
