Hi, I’m Katey, the face behind Holly Goes Light.
HGL was created as an attempt to live lighter by embracing simplicity and leading a more sustainable, intentional life. Here you will find my thoughts on slow living, as well as guides to traveling light, minimal wardrobes, and reducing waste.
I currently reside in a one-bedroom apartment in Los Angeles with my boyfriend and our two cats. Away from my computer, I enjoy sitting on park benches and people watching, power walking like a champ, leaving my phone at home, and practicing yoga.
A few years ago, I decided that I wanted to build a life that was intentional, sustainable, and less focused on material possessions. Simple living seems unnecessarily complicated at times, but all you really have to do is start paying attention: to what you’re buying, what you’re consuming, what you’re holding on to, and then evaluating how it makes you feel. And then being open to making the change if you decide that this isn’t the life that you envisioned for yourself.
This site is my documentation of trying, and sometimes failing – which is great for character growth – to build a better life.
