My name is McKenzie and I am so happy you've found yourself perusing The Z List. I started this blog in the summer of 2015. What started as a place to put my thoughts has turned into my personal canvass. I've always adored of my first words was Nordstrom. I've also always loved to write, but not about the fluffy stuff. I've suffered from clinical depression and generalized anxiety for years. It is words that have lifted me from my very darkest places. My blog highlights a lot of who I am. Whether I talk about style, mental health, food, or travel, I try and do it with vulnerability and authenticity. 

What else do you need to know? I have a 13 pound mutt named Fitz. He is a therapy dog and comes with me almost everywhere. I live in Winston Salem, NC, but I will always be a California girl at heart. I can watch Scandal all day. I'm obsessed with Brene Brown. I drink coffee like its water, and am most happy with a glass of Merlot.
