About Us

To all our friends:

Welcome to The Six and Five!

This is a website gathering that fuels women to pause and be filled with joy and inspiration.

We’re Kathleen and Monica, two brown-eyed sisters who are thrilled to share with you our community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity in this shared passion project of ours. Topics will include fashion, beauty, food, motherhood and travel with a female focus.

We were born and raised in a family of seven children in Orange County, California. With our Irish and Italian heritage, there was much laughter, food, creativity and joy. Why our number name? Monica is the sixth in line and I’m the fifth in sibling placement.

Our goal with this site is to cover — through words, videos and images — moments of discovery and joy where you’ll learn about the most esteemed woman artists, speakers and a group of people who work hard, play hard and strive to make a difference in the world.

It’s important for us to offer you a little bit of everything. Monica is a Dallas-based wife and mom to Seraphina (my goddaughter!) so you’ll find her posts on motherhood, fashion, beauty and life in Texas. I’ll share with you my favorite things and happenings in California, particularly Orange County which I call home 🙂

We want to connect with readers from all walks of life by sharing content so valuable and so meaningful that you’ll want to return to each post again and again feeling inspired and confident.

Thank you for visiting our site! We appreciate you!

Kathleen and Monica
