About Kallie Branciforte | Connecticut Lifestyle and Motherhood Blog

Connecticut Blogger and YouTuber

I’m Kallie Branciforte, the creator behind But First, Coffee. I’m a blogger, YouTuber, mom, wife, and usually in need of another cup of coffee.

A little more about me? 

In 2016 I married my high school sweetheart and the blog husband here at BFC. He’s my best friend and #1 supporter. BFC wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for him.

I’m also a boy mom to Miles who was born in 2018. My husband and I struggled through infertility and miscarriage to conceive, but it was worth it all 100x over to be Miles’ mama. I share a lot of motherhood content as a new mom.

And, in 2021 we welcomed baby girl Finley to the family!

I’m a morning person. My body pretty much shuts down at 8:00 pm, so I’ve learned if I want to get things done, I need to wake up early for them.

Connecticut Blogger Kallie Branciforte

I live in Connecticut and in 2019 we bought our little coastal cottage. You can see home posts and updates here and also shop/view my house by room.

I’m a big-time homebody.

I have a strong attraction to things that are fluffy: puppies, soft sweatshirts, throw pillows from Target.  I chose my Honeymoon to Peru partly because I knew I would get to snuggle alpacas and I did and it was AWESOME – see that here. If it’s not comfortable, I won’t wear it.

I love two things: saving time and saving money. You can bet I blog about how I do it so I can help you save as well.

About the Blog

But First, Coffee is a blog for the modern (well-caffeinated) woman. Here you’ll find tricks for making your beauty routine easier, lifestyle hacks, and D.I.Y projects. Essentially…if it saves you time or saves you money, I’m probably blogging about it. 

You can also find me on YouTube where I post new videos every Sunday.
