Creating a life you love


Hi, I’m Thea.

I started this brand as a personal online publication after graduating from Boston University with a degree in Marketing and Design. Originally from San Francisco, I was thousands of miles from family and friends, and needed an outlet for exploring my passions and connecting with others. My goal has always been to show others the beauty in enjoying life’s simple pleasures and to encourage others to look inward for self fulfillment.

Thousands of readers later, The Contextual Life has become a resource for anyone wanting a sense of community and a source of inspiration throughout their journey of life. It’s a place where readers can find suggestions on where to travel, what to eat, what to wear, and what to shop for, from experts who are almost like personal friends.

The Contextual Life brings our mission to life through news, products, experiences, and design. We are dedicated to providing the latest information to help you live a lifestyle that you love. Thank you for being here. Stay awhile.
