Speed dating is a weekly series with some of our favorite brand evangelists.  Today in the hot seat is Kimia Kalbasi, a San Francisco-based blogger and influencer.

Kimia (@kimia.kalbasi) is the founder of Kimia’s Kravings, your ultimate go-to guide for where to eat, drink, and be merry.  She is a highly acclaimed content creator and influencer who focuses on food, travel, and lifestyle.  She shamelessly intertwines punny positivity in all that she does.  Kimia has also been featured in the Huffington Post, Socialfly Live, TRL, ABC News, Good Morning America Digital, PA Live, and Forbes.  We were thrilled to team up with Kimia to help her furnish her new SF pad.  We convinced her to take a short break from blogging to join us for a round of Speed Dating.
