I've seen the concept of the capsule wardrobe (well explained + mastered here on this cute gal of Unfancy) traveling through the blogosphere and I have to be honest with you, it's not for me. I love my clothes. One... Continue reading

Hi April! With the Instax cameras you definitely get what you pay for. The pricier one definitely delivers much better quality photos and has some awesome features that I like - timer, ability to turn of the flash, macro mode. The cheaper ones just take so-so photos. If you're looking for one in between, I had the 50S before it broke this summer and was really happy with the results: http://tinyurl.com/lqmko9w Hope that helps!

A couple weeks ago I was lucky to head to California for a girls weekend with my friends Jenny + Elsie. We had no plans except to hang out at the Ace Hotel, drink some drinks (and coffee), talk a... Continue reading

Just one of the things I miss about Paris are my frequent trips to Merci. You might know it as the shop with the little red Mini out front. It was about fifteen mintues from my apartment and I would... Continue reading

Hi Rhoni! Unfortunately I don't remember. I just chose one outside the Grand Palace, there are tons of restaurants lining the streets over there. I don't think you can go wrong! Have a good trip!

Thank you! No Portland guide going up before your trip but there are a lot of recommendations posted on my Instagram and also blogged here: http://www.kellypurkey.com/its_me_kp/pdx/ - enjoy your trip, it's one of my favorite cities!
Hi Krystyn, I have been in the dark about the coolness of podcasts for so long that the only way I found the ones I listen to has been through other people posting about them. Twitter or blogs have been my resource, but you can definitely search through iTunes. I really like the ones on Heritage Radio Network. there's a huge variety to try out. Anne Marie also has a great list here, if any of these sound interesting to you: http://annmarieloves.com/2014/02/26/workspace-wednesday-favorite-podcast-episodes/#.U0SzzcdRGQk
