Irish&Scandi is a community created by lifestyle blogger Kathleen Utschig to merge many interests into one place.


For years, Kathleen struggled to find her identity thinking that she had to fit into one box. It wasn’t until one day she realized that she wasn’t meant to fit into one category:


You can have superficial wants/needs and also be really into spiritual practices. 

You can be free-spirited but also really into designer duds. 

You can want to eat vegan most of the time, but also really crave a burger once in a while - preferably grass fed :).

You can want to travel the world but also be a homebody.


At Irish&Scandi, we encourage you to come as you are and be who you are.


We encourage you to follow your heart.

We love to watch you grow. 

We shine a light on all of your strengths and your weaknesses. 


Human beings were made to evolve. And rules were made to be broken.

About Kathleen

Kathleen Utschig is a lifestyle blogger from Westchester County, New York. She began blogging in 2010 under the name “Get Glowing” while studying to be a Holistic Health Coach at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Since then she has been blogging off and on but found her real niche when she threw away what she thought her blog should look like and embraced what felt real to her.

Along with being a Certified Health Coach she is also a Certified Yoga Teacher and holds her Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies with a focus in Psychology.

She lives in Westchester County, New York with her husband, Andrew, and their pup, Kali. You can find her commuting in and out of New York City, running up and down the Hudson River, and foraging local goods at her favorite local farm.
