DIY // WISHBONE STENCIL NAPKINS

Even though I already celebrated Thanksgiving with my Grandma and fam this past weekend, I still can’t believe the holiday season is here. Crazy. Well with my second Thanksgiving celebration this week, I wanted to add a little festiveness to the Thanksgiving table since I don’t participate in the cooking. That’s what fiancés and mothers… Read More


SEW // FRINGE CAPLET

I found Cleobella on Instagram a while back and fell in love with their Sasha caplet. This isn’t the first fringe caplet I’ve fallen for (see here, here, here), but I could quickly sew in my head how I could make one so I added it to my sewing list. I was happy to take on the challenge… Read More


DIY // FAUX FUR RUG

With cold temps setting in, I needed a solution to keep my (and my pups) toes from getting frostbite in my studio.

Cue to last season when I hit the fur lottery by finding this amazing… Read More


NEW TOOL! SILHOUETTE CAMEO

I’ve seen agate coasters all over the internet and found the answer to my… Read More




DIY // EDIE PARKER INSPIRED CLUTCH

Pretty much my whole life my brothers have poked fun of my affection for sparkly things. They even joked I would like the glitter box better than the present that is in it. #truth Things haven’t changed much except my affection has turned to expensive sparkly boxes like clutches. And no one is doing the glitter clutch like Edie Parker. Founder… Read More



HOME MANTRA: THRIFTED, GIFTED & HANDMADE

At the start of 2014, I was focused on pulling together the apartment my boyfriend and I share. During the process, I did an inventory of the decor and furniture in our place and where everything was sourced. Mostly everything had been thrifted, gifted or handmade. This was a cool realization because it’s the first place in my life where I have made a… Read More
