The Girl Behind The Up Side

Hi my name is Kara! I’m a twenty-something Raleigh, NC resident. I was born in New York. I love photography, food, music, and I am a face mask enthusiast. I love a good book!

Writing has been something I liked doing for a while and it feels great doing it! I love being able to share my passion with you. In March 2017, started The Up Side and it has been a wild ride since. So much learning and growing has been done since then and will continue to be done. Thank you for stopping by!
