Start Here

What will you find here on Covering the Bases (CTB)? Let's start at the top -- aka the menu bar:


Home: (obvious) will take you back to the main page if you ever get lost!

Start Here: Hello! That's right here, so we're off to a good start.

----About: A little more about the site, what this thing is about and who I am. It's a pretty good read, but hey, I'm a little biased.
----FAQ: Have a burning question? I bet someone has already asked! Mosey on over here to see if I can answer your question for you. If not, email me! Let's chat.

Contact: Call me, beep me if you wanna reach me. Doesn't matter when, doesn't matter why (shout out to middle school and Kim Possible!) But really, email me if you have an unanswered question, want advice, want to work together, want to just say hi, you name it. Email me!

Subscribe: Want a little more Krista in your everyday life? Sign up for my fun newsletter to get a little dose of CTB in your inbox! You can sign up for daily posts, exclusive content and just overall glitter and hugs a couple of times each week.


Fashion: This blog is heavily focused on fashion, clothes and outfits worn and styled by yours truly. Here you can get a small preview of ALL my outfit posts on one page and click out to explore more of your favorites.

Some of my most popular fashion posts? Here, here and here

New here and want a better understanding of my style? This outfit, this and this are some of my favorite casual looks from the past two years while here, here and here are some of my usual M/O's. (No-pants party all year round)

Looking for outfits you can wear to work? Look no further than this post, this one and this!

How about seeing me with #AllTheMakeup and super fancy? They're few and far between but this one and this one are hard to miss. 

And finally, you tryna hit up a baseball game and have no idea what to wear? Look no further than this tag right here my dear!


Travel: Behind fashion, travel is No. 2 in content here on CTB. I love to travel and I want to take you on some fun adventures! Clicking the travel tab will show you all of my travel content but if you're looking for something a little more specific, check out the drop down options.

----Destinations: Here you can easily check out all the places I've been and all the cool things I've done! It's a great way to get an in depth account of my trips.
----Hotel Reviews: Looking for a place to stay and trust me enough to recommend a hotel? If you answered yes to any of the above then this tab is for you! I like to (honestly) share my feedback on hotels and my time there. And while some hotels give me complimentary stays, I will always keep it 100 with you.
----Travel Guides: My travel guides are there for you to cut right to the point. A quick one-sheeter on what I've done, what I recommend, things you can live without, things you MUST see, best places to eat and so on. These are also super link heavy so if you ever want to know a little more, there will be a more in depth blog post just a click away!
----Tips: I love to travel, I don't have a ton of money to blow and I have a 9-5 job. I feel I'm in the majority of people and if this relates at all to your life, I have some tips I think would be fun to share! I want you to live your best life and if that is via travel, let's DO IT.

One of my most popular travel tip posts? "How I Afford to Travel"


NYC: City of dreams #hello! Just like my travel tab, this NYC one is a general overview of all my NYC related posts. Come hang out at the Top of The Rock with me, or take a stroll through Central Park with a small picnic in hand. Want to be adventurous and bike down the West Side Highway? It's all here and MORE!

----Restaurant Guide: If you're really just here for the food (because let's face it, we all are) let me guide you through my favorite places to chow down in the city. If you make it all the way to New York and eat at a major chain like Red Lobster, you're doing it wrong. Let me help.
----Where to stay: I get it, there are a TON of places to stay in the city. Really a hotel on every block. Which one do I stay at? What part of the city is the best? How can I get the real NYC boutique hotel experience? All these answers and more await you.
----72 hours in the City: This is one of my most asked questions: "I'm coming to NYC for the weekend, what should I do?" This is your ultimate to-do-can't-miss guide. Let's have some fun.
----Christmas in the City: Best series ever or best series ever? Counting down the 12 Days of Christmas by hitting up my favorite Santa decor in the city. It's 100% worth a look any time of year.


Other: You're still wanting a little more? OK. I can help with that. CTB is also known to cover some other verticals and topics so there is a little something for everyone here.

----Home: I live in a 300q ft studio in the heart of the city and I have a TON of stuff. Here you can see it splitting at the seams with navy and white, find a mix of high and low items to decorate with and get a better peak into where the magic happens (magic = blog, get your mind out of the gutter).
----Video: In some circles, I fancy myself a vlogger. Here is just a collection of videos (I post a new one every Thursday!) that are embedded via YouTube. This is mainly for people too lazy to go to my page and like to stay where they're the most comfortable (here... at 3 am... creeping on my sister's friend's dog's Instagram photo from two years ago under the fashion tab wondering how you got there).
----Beauty: I honestly don't know what's under this tab seeing as how I don't wear makeup during the week and I have no idea how to french braid. Shall we explore what sage advice I have to offer?
----Blogging: Ever heard of it? This is one of my favorite tabs on the site because I get to talk openly and candidly about my life in the blogging world. Sometimes it's funny and relatable and other times it's helpful and resourceful. But either way, it's always a highly engaged part of my blog and I think everyone who checks it out loves it!

I mean, who doesn't love to know how to best manage a full time job and a successful blog? And of course you can't forget my most popular post of ALL time: Instagram vs. Real life


Shop: Hi, my name is Krista and I have a shopping problem. *Hi Krista* To share this problem with you, I just pick out a ton of stuff I like and threw it on a page for you to see. It's really more like a year-round Christmas list for myself and anyone else wanting to buy me stuff (hi mom) but you can check it out too. Don't worry, you don't have to buy me anything in the process.

----Product: If you want to get savvy and narrow it down by type of product, this is the place for you!
----Instagram: Ever ask where something is from in my Instagram and I'm just THE WORST and never reply back? (which doesn't happen but still, play along) Well look no further than my Instagram feed! Here you can shop my exact (or very similar) products via LiketoKnow.It and never have to wonder where something is from again!
----Snapchat: Sometimes I post cool stuff on snapchat and you want to know where it's from. This is the best place for you to be. And if you're not following me on Snapchat, I'm pretty sure you're like not even allowed on that page sooooooo just go ahead and add me now: @ kristalinn14

WHEW. IS THAT ALL, KRISTA?? High five for anyone who just read through this all and still wants to hang out. I'm currently writing this pumped up off of some Flaming Hot Cheetos and cucumber soda so I'm really at my all-time best for jokes right now. I hope you enjoyed.

Can we be friends now?
