The story behind Good Obsessions: My business actually started as a a health and fitness blog, named many other things before landing on my favorite of Good Obsessions. The multiple name changes happened as a result of my inability to find the perfect fit to encompass everything that I do or have done in my life. I’m a Certified Health Coach. I’m a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. I coach youth volleyball.
At the time, I was looking for a way to blog about health and fitness for my clients in that industry, as well as blog about everything else in my life that I love…I love to travel and want to see as much of the world as possible. I have a love for anything artsy and crafty, which morphed into me starting up a reclaimed wood art business. So when trying to come up with a idea for my blog that would allow me to touch on all of that, I thought, “how can I talk about ALL of my obsessions?!”
And there you have it.
Good Obsessions went from a blog idea - to a business idea - to an actual business with a storefront - to an online boutique, and more!
While many of my products are still reclaimed, they all aren’t. I also offer products from different mediums, such as, wine barrels, wine barrel rings, drink-ware, acrylic, and hopefully more to come soon!
In addition to my online store and local pop-up shopping boutiques in the 805, you can catch me hosting DIY Workshop parties, or delivering some of my wedding and event rentals!

A bit about me…
Hi, I'm Kelley! I’m an entrepreneur, adventure-seeker, world traveler, wanna-be-blogger, and lover of all things creative. I have the cutest little monster of a pup. Her name is Gizmo. aka Giz, Gizzie, Monster, Nugget.
What I do: I wear many hats. I’m a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (C.S.C.S.). I coach volleyball. & I run this little business of mine building, creating, and painting all sorts of fun pieces… NOW FULL TIME! (eeee!!)
My current obsessions: yoga & podcasts!
Bragging Rights: I have been featured in multiple bridal blogs/magazines for my signs and rentals!
My goals: Live life. LOVE life. My goal is to not wake up one day and find myself going through life on autopilot. I want to travel to every continent. I want to see and experience as many different countries and cultures as possible. I want to be able to hold my own in multiple languages. I want to create things that bring happiness to people’s lives.
This and that: I own far too many pairs of shoes. I love pillows, and some would say I have too many of those also. I love to bake and cook, especially when trying new recipes. I live for the little things because of the joy they add to your life. Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year… although I love all seasons, which is why I love living in southern California. I am realizing that my creative side can be more creative than I thought. I don’t have a favorite color.. seriously. I love planners and to do lists. I love being outdoors and trying new “adventures”. I’ve run 2 half marathons… a full is on my bucket list, but I’m just not ready. I’d play volleyball every day if I could. I love photography, but am a total amateur. I tend to overestimate how much I can get done in one day. Oh, and I love planning and hosting parties!
