7 reasons to give up the paperback & get an e-reader

I’m a bibliophile. I’ve also been an avid e-reader user for the past 3 years. Here’s why I made the switch: I can carry a “bag-full of books” in one hand. I like reading multiple books at the same time; with an e-reader I can carry multiple books without weighing down my bag. I can […]

pillow talk: are you with the right one?

Are you sleeping with “the one”? No, I’m not talking about a human, I’m talking about a pillow! A recent experience led me to consider who, I mean, what, I am sleeping with, and if it’s really treating me the way I deserve to be treated. #ITakeNappingSeriously A few months ago I stayed overnight at […]

never see junk mail in your email inbox again (video)

Here’s something crazy: 183 billion emails are sent and received each day. Thankfully, all 183 billion aren’t landing in your inbox, but some days it can feel like they are. Some of it is unavoidable and needs to be dealt with. Some of it can even be enjoyable. But we’re guessing that there’s a good […]

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 […]

5 ways pets improve our homes and lives

One of the first things my husband and I did after our honeymoon was adopt a chubby little 8-week old mutt from a local shelter (she was born at the shelter because her mom was dropped off pregnant – how sad!). Her name is Emmylou and I’ll be inserting photos of her throughout this post. […]

open the mail already

I love mail. As a child, I could spot an invite and distinguish junk mail from a mile away. I’d gotten it into my head that those who received mail were people of importance (that is, adults). Now that I’m firmly in my adult years, not much has changed. It’s a daily habit to check […]

Be Content

We’ve heard all the quotes, “You are not your stuff,” “less is more,” “simplicity is bliss.” I repeat, tweet and pin these inspirational one liners all day long. The truth is however, even as a relatively organized person, I constantly struggle with attachment to stuff and a desire for more. It’s a natural tendency and […]

Trying too hard to impress others

Simplicity. It’s a word that, these days, seems aspirational rather than common. But why?
