This is how I hope I feel when I go wifi freeeeee!

phone free weekends…

It’s been almost three weeks since I’ve returned from The Unique Camp – a creative business summit held up in Big Bear. I have found the experience impossible to put into words – even though it’s all I could talk about the week after I returned home. My husband and friends all nodded their heads with […]

Real Simple May 2016

did you spot me in Real Simple Magazine?!!

I have never been so excited (ok, maybe when Adam and I got engaged and the day we got married are stiff competition) but still, this is pretty epic. Real Simple came to our house back in December (ages ago) and shot it for the May FEATURE. EEEEEP. I’m not sure who is the bigger […]

This got me thinking about the types of homes I commonly see. In my mind, there […]

candle crush

This might sound strange, but one of my fave things about fall are candles. Yes, wax pillars with a cord in the middle get my heart thumping as the leafs change outside. Forget scarves, sweaters, and boots, people (I can, because I’m in LA)! It’s all about candles. They add ambiance to your space both […]

the pros & cons of stockpiling

If you’ve watched TLC in the last decade, odds are you’ve seen at least one couponer and their stockpile (thank you, The Learning Channel, for teaching us about storing bulk items).

garage sales, thrift stores, flea markets, oh my!

Some of us just love our deals: estate sales, flea markets, garage sales, thrift stores, antique malls = COUNT ME IN! When I travel, one of my favorite things to do is check out the local flea market and antique mall. Why? Because I love learning about what people collect in different regions by what they’re […]

when “sparks joy” just isn’t cutting it

By now the odds are you’ve heard something about her royal organizing highness, Marie Kondo (creator of the KonMari Method and author of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up). She’s the woman notorious for telling those wanting to change their hoarding ways to ask the simple question of each object in their home: does this spark joy? More precisely, she […]
