A new life away from the TV

I’m embarrassed. My name is Beth Penn and I watch way too much TV. I also check my Instagram feed way too much. Duuuuuuuuuuuude. I’m done.

let’s make time management cool

how to create a capsule collection

We’re talking wardrobe folks– capsule collection is a really fancy way to say I paired my sh$% down to 37 pieces of clothing that can mix and match with ease. I heard about if first from my friend Abby, who heard it from a blog called Unfancy. If everyone is talking about it, it’s worth […]

Our MakeSpace Try-Out

Those of you who know us well know that we preach the gospel of “Less is More” and we mean it.

Bneato Bar + DesignLoveFest = one spectacular closet

I was tickled pink when the DesignLoveFest crew reached out to us to lend a hand with Bri’s master closet. I mean, hello?! Have you seen this woman’s blog?! She rocks a killer style and she kinda wrote the book on how to ‘do you’ for your blog (which will now be a badass blog […]

how long does it actually take?

People aren’t usually maliciously late. Sure, sometimes it’s nice to take our time getting ready and showing up fashionably late to a party.
