Thanks, Rachel! I printed them through Persnickety Prints - you can do 6x12 prints or they also print 12x12 really cheap so it can save a little money if you plan ahead (which I don't often, ha!)

1. Because this just makes me feel happy. 2. 5 Tools of Digital Elite Travelers from USA Today - I definitely learned some things from reading this list. Do I need an Apple watch... I just might? 3. The Eight... Continue reading

Hi Camile! The camera is a Fuji x100 and my favorite camera I've ever owned. 90% of the photos on here are taken with it and I highly recommend: http://bit.ly/1LPbH3q
Thanks, Vicky! I use a fine tip Sharpie - they're my favorite for writing on photos.

Week Six and still having a lot of fun with the 6x12. This was the week I was a shut-in at home and those days consisted of nothing exciting + a lot of work. I did go to Chicago for... Continue reading

A funny thing happened as I sat down in a very crowded coffee shop in Brooklyn to write this post. I had just clicked the compose button when two men approached and asked if they could share the other side... Continue reading

Thank you! I am going to do a post on suitcases + bags soon but the small tote I use the most is an older one from Amy Kathryn. I love the look of these from Everlane: https://www.everlane.com/collections/womens-bags
Hi April, I've customized my blog design on the backend so it's 620 pixels wide (yours might be set to a default right now, I'm not sure) but I size all my photos to be that width in Photoshop before uploading. Then I upload them to the post at full size so Typepad doesn't resize them at all. I'm not sure if that helps you or not, but I hope so!

I've been talking a lot about packing in pouches and it's been fun to share some of my favorite things to put inside. Last time it was carry-on favorites and today I'm talking about the smallest one in my set.... Continue reading

I have always wanted to live in Stars Hollow. Haven't we all? Back in November I discovered that living in Charleston, South Carolina would be the closest thing I'd ever come to being a Stars Hollow resident. This charming city... Continue reading

Week Five of Project Life and I'm still loving it. I was actually feeling down in the dumps the other day and the first thing I thought of to cheer me up was to work on the album. I think... Continue reading

Hi Olya! I usually don't say anything and do my best to be polite + discreet about it. The majority of places I've been are completely fine with it and actually love the exposure.

I've spent most of the month in Michigan, where it seems like winter will never end. Tons of snow. Very, very cold. Pure Michigan. Yesterday while I was working I kept taking breaks to watch the snow fall. It seemed... Continue reading

I've been thinking a lot about that nasty F word. Fear. It's been the topic of conversation lately. Things we are afraid of. Things that give us pause. Things that hold us back. Things that paralyze us from making a... Continue reading

I'm excited to be contributing to some posts over on Common Table Co. - a website dedicated to gathering friends around a table. You know there's nothing I love better. You can see my first post on the Brooklyn spot... Continue reading

Hi Nat! I can't remember what brand wipes I've used but I just picked them up at Walgreen's - probably they were Sally Hansen in a five pack? The only issue was they smelled super strong, but they definitely were a great thing to have in my toiletry kit. So glad you liked the pouch post :)
Hi Beth, the dies were exclusive to Simon Says Stamp and they have decided to discontinue them - I'm sorry.
I haven't but that's really interesting to know, I have never thought of that!
I think your mascara tube is ok to just pack in your suitcase, I take a powder foundation when I travel. I love the Bare Minerals ones :)
My favorite set ever.

Project Life in 2015 continues! This week I spent the beginning in Brooklyn and then the weekend in the Bay Area. I chose to keep it simple and instead of trying to make it a tale of two cities (ha!)... Continue reading

Yep, doubled checked the TSA site before posting so I wasn't giving misinformation ;) They call it 3-1-1 for 3 oz, 1 bag per 1 person.

The other day I shared my packing secret to success in the pouches post, so today I wanted to expand on some of the things that get packed inside them. When I travel, I really like to carry-on my suitcase... Continue reading
