Hi, I’m Hallie. Thanks for stopping by! It’s nice to meet you — or if we haven’t e-fficially yet (lol), click here and say hey on the ‘gram. Welcome to Among Other Things (formerly known as corals + cognacs, which you can read about here).
Here, you’ll find an almost-daily dose of lifestyle chats, outfit inspo, travel tips, international city guides, and a variety of workout and wellness topics. (I’m a fitness instructor, too!)
I’m a Midwest native (Cleveland) living in Chicago, although I’ve called both East and West coasts home — most recently, three years in New York City.
I’m a frequent flier, too — in the last couple of years, I’ve traveled through Australia, Croatia, Switzerland, Paris, Bordeaux, Thailand, Hong Kong, Kyoto, Tokyo, Florence, Tuscany, Milan, Cinque Terre and more… And counting. Check out my 10 favorite moments from six weeks in Europe (solo). And don’t miss the video I made.
- Likes: Traveling, music, red wine, late nights and good stories.
- Dislikes: Delayed flights, slow walkers, gum chompers, voicemails.
About Among Other Things:
I started blogging in 2010 — so, like, forever ago. Social media wasn’t even a thing yet! I quit my job and started blogging full-time in 2014 (and I was in New York City at the time).
Anyway, the site was initially called “corals + cognacs, but I rebranded to Among Other Things in 2016 to better encompass the variety of topics we talk about ’round here.
If you have more questions, I’ve probably answered them here. My “Questions and Answers” section is a work in progress, so bear with me.
Lastly, I’d love for you to click here and subscribe to e-mail updates (I won’t spam you, promise) so you never miss a post — and please free to connect with me on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, too!
