studio update: how I finished my space

If you’ve been following along on our home renovation, you know that we’ve had to do (and are still doing) A LOT to make the space our own. Luckily for me, the new studio space was almost move-in ready. So far, all we’ve had to do was paint the floors twice, build some shelving and bring in […]

home progress: dresser found!

My search for the perfect dresser ended with a big heeeeeell yes! Quality dressers are SO expensive and even not so great quality dressers usually cost more than I wanted to spend and when I find myself in that predicament (which I much too often do) I turned my search to vintage. I started googling […]

my style: travel basics & anthropologie giveaway (closed)

Anthropologie sent me these beautiful pants from their colorful line of Hyphen Chinos just in time for our trip to Miami and they quickly became a staple in my travel wardrobe. I picked the “candied ginger” colorway, which happens to be my latest hue obsession. You may also recognize it from my new studio floors… CAN NOT […]

DIY – painted floors in my studio

Here’s the first peek into my new studio! Until recently it has been filled with moving boxes, with the exception of where I carved out a small corner for my computer desk (a glance in here last week and you would swear I was a hoarder), but I have slowly cleared it out so that […]

travel stories: Classic Campers, New Zealand Part 2

We decided to stay up in the north island this trip so that we didn’t feel too rushed trying to fit everything into one visit (which also means we have a really good excuse to return for the south island). As it went, we still managed to stay in a different place every night and […]
