Where With Elle

Think of this blog as a little black book brimming with the best ideas for a healthy, vibrant, verdant life — where to go, shop, and stay — as well as smart, simple solutions for sustainable living and evergreen guides geared at fostering a more mindful, curious lifestyle that’s filled with adventure.

With roots on a farm in North Georgia and an industrial design degree from Georgia Tech, Hunt-Ralston is all about editing, living simply, and timeless aesthetics to boot. — Jezebel Magazine

Jess L. Hunt-Ralston

Hello! Thank you for stopping by my new journal (here’s my old one, Rose & Fig). Through Where With Elle I hope to help others create a big, beautiful life filled with exploration and compassion.

I’m an INTJ interested in sustainable and ethical living, so within these pages you’ll find lots of lists, series, and dramatic monologues organized by project. I am obsessed with simplicity, efficiency, nature, oxford commas, and good design.

I work as a communications strategist at my alma mater in Atlanta, Georgia. When my suitcase is unpacked you’ll usually find me biking the BeltLine with my husband, catching a concert, helping out with our little neighborhood organization, or walking the pups — Kipper and Pimm’s Cup — to the farmer’s market for a bite to eat.

Through my work as a writer, photographer, and model, I’ve been featured in The Atlantan Magazine, Modern Luxury Weddings, Maxim, Georgia Tech Alumni Magazine, The Daily Meal, and on CBS Better Mornings Atlanta. I recently appeared as a sustainable lifestyle expert on Good Day Atlanta and am honored to be named among Jezebel Magazine’s “Most Beautiful Atlantans.”
