Live In The Nautical

// Travel // Fashion // Lifestyle // Self-Love //

Author: K.M. Sutton

I am a country girl living on the Upper East Side of the concrete jungle. My friends call me a modern day Renaissance woman. I have dabbled in a little bit of everything, from being a yoga instructor to holistic chef, to skating coach, to glorified nanny, to student. I am a self admitted coffee junkie. A wannabe mermaid. A wanderluster who dreams of other countries. A fashionista who really does need a bigger bank account. But most important of all, I dream of living in a bungalow by the ocean and being a published writer (in style of course) sipping coffee in the morning and a martini in the evening. I love to meet my readers, so feel free to comment or email me. Happy reading!

It isn’t Sadistical it is Passion

As an active toddler who wanted to keep up with her siblings, a competitive figure skater, runner, all around athlete and yogi, physical pain I am use to. Let’s face it in some ways athletes – regardless of where you are on the demanding spectrum dancer to football player- are sadistical. We train hard, getting up at ridiculous hours, going ….


Aging vulnerabilities and Happy Birthdays

I have never been one of those people who have had an issue with aging. I can hear your laughing in disbelief, but it is true. You might think so. Especially since I live in a city that takes great pride in appearance and youthful exuberance. Where there are just as many Sephoras’ and other cosmetic stores as there are ….

Perfecting the Imperfections

I have written about this a lot. In my journals, poetry, words to get out, to help me heal, personally in private. I have debated a lot about whether or not to post this, I have debated with myself that to post this is to open myself up in a way that for a long time I haven’t been able ….

Country Girl meets City Slicker

Sometimes I wondered why I moved here, don’t get me wrong. I love it, every time I walk past Louis, or the plaza, eat at another orgasmic tasting restaurant, or practice yoga in the park I say a silent thank you to the gods above for letting me live here. But let’s be honest there are some very nasty aspects ….

Aging the Journey

Another year. Another age, do I feel older? Well from yesterday? Uh no. Sorry. I see the crestfallen faces. No twenty-three does not feel different from twenty-two, give it some time people it has only been sixty -eight hours* Isn’t it funny how people automatically assume these transformations? Transformations don’t just happen. You can decide they happen, but it doesn’t ….

Easter Bunny Coming to NoCo

I have been super quiet all week, because I didn’t want to say anything, but today is the big day. Today is the day I become the favorite child. I kid, but I think I do rise quite a bit, in my parents eyes. You see I have been plotting with my brother’s girlfriend who is going to be picking ….

A Good Friday

Success! Pure and utter success! My flight was a little bumpy coming in, (it always is flying into Portland!) and I hate it! Ce le vie though. It was hysterical because my brother’s GF had a sign waiting for me. And what was more was we had both dyed/changed our hair! Oh that is right Small Town Asanas, I am ….

To Finally Love Yourself

My trip has truly been interesting and extremely refreshing, not going to lie. I am truly reminded and blessed and happy to be where I am. Saturday night was beautiful as always (the candles are my favorites part…and no it has nothing to do with playing with the candles as a kid…to much) Afterwards I spent it with my madre, ….

Sit Breathe Observing Silently

I feel like a cloud has lifted. Which I am finding happens with anniversaries. Unfortunately with that cloud has also come a crash course in having to get my observing hours in. Seriously between my slump With Jacquie’s birthday and going home for Easter I have been really naughty about getting my hours in! Not good. Not good either is ….

Happy Birthday Sugar

I have the best friends seriously. My one friend (who has been a huge source of inspiration and encouragement) picked me up at the airport. Sweetest thing ever! Then for the last couple of days I have been depressed. Not in an I hate myself way, because NH pretty much confirmed I am on the right track. But in an ….
