What is Window Seat View?
Hello! I am Jessica a Colorado-based blogger and creative entrepreneur. I started my blog Window Seat View a little over two years ago and use it to share creative content that is meant to inspire living a simple lifestyle that is full of adventure. The name Window Seat View came from the idea of viewing so much of the world from the window seat. Whether that be on a plane, train, boat, bus, car, airstream, or from any other window that opens up the world of adventure. There is so much to see in this world and I want to have a new view outside my window as much as possible.
Life Is A Journey
One of my dreams is to one day share how to be a digital nomad. But for now, I am sharing my journey until I reach the pivotal moment where I can leave my day job. And have the freedom to live my life on my terms. Working from where ever I want to be in that moment. Living the adventure. Exploring new places both near and far. Adventure in the clothes you wear and simplifying your wardrobe so you can be prepared for anything. Adventure in trying new things. And adventure in living your dreams.
Travel Near, Travel Far, Just Go
My traveling journey has started small, which means that I am currently exploring places that are near. But luckily I live in a state that has a lot to discover. As I explore Colorado I am gradually branching out to see more of the United States and the world little by little. A sustainable take on traveling. Eventually working up to my full-time explorer status. But I don’t just want to visit places for a few days. I want to fully immerse myself in new ways of life for months or even years at a time. But first, I want to show people that traveling the world is approachable no matter what your budget looks like and you have to start somewhere no matter what your budget may be. Make travel a priority.
Dressing for The Adventure
Traveling has to be done right and I believe it has to be done in style. Fashion is another area that I have been passionate about ever since I was a little girl. I have always been styling fancy outfits for every occasion. I love wearing romantic dresses, classic styles, floral prints, and most recently a lot of vintage.
My Sustainable Intentions
I am working hard to build a wardrobe that is found from sustainable sources, that are quality made, and fit my personal style. Fashion should be fun but it also should be intentional. Building a wardrobe is a lifelong investment and instead of throwing away money on all the fast trends you should be focusing on putting your money into clothing that is functional and that can be worn seasonally, year after year.
An Obtainable Low Impact Lifestyle
My ideal lifestyle is a work in progress, which I am sure you can relate to. But I like to share all my tips on how to build a sustainable lifestyle that is good for your health and the planet. Last year I started my zero waste journey and with just a few changes in my habits, I started living through my healthiest year. There is so much room for growth. But my zero waste journey catapulted me to shop at the farmers market every week (when in season). This one habit became an addiction. I wanted to learn more about health and where our food came from. I started visiting local farms in Colorado to see for myself what the difference between a freshly picked fruit/vegetable was like compared to a store-bought one. Which ultimately led me to become vegan. I became addicted to plants and investing in my well-being. I hope to expose more of this lifestyle so I can inspire people to make the necessary changes our planet needs for a healthy future. And that starts with the food you eat and the waste you produce.
Growth Takes Time
When you live more simply and intentionally you have more time and money for experiences. I am setting a goal this year to spend less money on things so I can have more experiences. 2020 is going to bring a lot of change and a lot of growth I hope you will stick around so we can learn and grow together.
