Hi, I’m J and welcome to City & Salt, my personal page to rant and rave as much as I want to. Let me get this out of the way – I am not a doctor, a therapist or really even an adult. Nor do I claim to be any of those things. So don’t blame me for any consequences you may face as a result of taking my advice. Capice?

I’m a fairly normal, single female residing in San Diego. I like my nightly glass of Pinot Grigio, other peoples dogs and I live for the half-yearly sale at Nordstrom. I also make jewelry and use my sleuthing skills to help my friends gather useful intel on their Bumble matches before a first date.

This blog was inspired by me dealing with more than my fair share of shady men, unfair stereotypes, and toxic people (Don’t worry, names will be changed to protect the guilty). Here I will share advice based on what I’ve learned in these unnecessarily stressful situations, as well as inspirational tips to help you live your best life.

So grab a glass of Rosé and stay a while. I promise you, it’s just about to get good.
