WELCOME TO PEACHES+SALT

Peaches+Salt is a lifestyle blog that shares a little bit of everything, from food to travel and DIY projects to fashion.

Founded by Madalyn Parr September 2014, Peaches+Salt was originally an outlet to share creative ideas and explore writing techniques. The idea for the blog came about one night at a bar and the next day it went live. Inspired by her two cats, Herbie and Ellie, the name for the blog came easily - Ellie is sweet as a peach and Herbie can be naughty and salty, as life can be sometimes.

Aside from the blog, Madalyn is also a full time Paid Media Planner at Edelman in Manhattan who loves to run, drink coffee and bake.


I'm originally from Richmond, Virginia where I grew up with 2 dogs and 5 cats over the years - I'm a huge animal lover. I attended Virginia Commonwealth University where I met my boyfriend, Jd Crawford five years ago. We both graduated with degrees in communications, Public Relations (me) and Creative Advertising (Jd), which helped give us the knowledge to kick off this blog.

We moved to New York in June 2015 on a whim when I suddenly found myself with an exciting new job offer and had 3 weeks to move. I moved in with my best friend Emily, who had already been living in New York for 2 years, and slept on her couch for 2 weeks until I found an apartment and Jd was able to move up with our cats.

Our life is absolutely crazy and we wouldn't have it any other way! I hope you enjoy the blog and feel free to reach out to us if you have questions or just simply want to say hi - we are super friendly!  

Sweet, little Ellie.
