I can't believe I've never shared the inside of our home here on the blog. I've been meaning to do a house tour for the longest time. But excuses always came up as to why I couldn't. Our place is too small. The windows don't let in much natural light in the winter. We'd actually have to hang all our art, finish this and that project, deep clean, hire a professional photographer. Too overwhelming. But then my friends at Porch.com asked me to share just one special spot in my house for their #LoveYourHome series. This I can do. And... Continue reading

Welcome new friends and old. Today is a special day. My big giveaway for 24 Merry Days! I couldn't be more pleased to partner up with New York-based jewelry designer, Alexis Russell. Her work is absolutely stunning, no? Understated, minimalist and modern. Bohemian, earthy and natural. Yet perfectly classy and refined. I'm a huge fan, not only because her jewelry reflects my style (I seriously want her entire collection), but also because it's ethical. She only uses recycled metals and conflict-free gemstones and diamonds. I collaged a few of my favorite pieces above, but if you win, we've made the... Continue reading

Thank you Caitlin! SO cool you are specializing in animal reiki! That's definitely something I want to learn more about in the future. It was my sweet little sick kitty who turned me onto reiki in the first place, I owe her everything :) xo

Don't you love how there are SOOO many episodes of Parenthood? You can marathon for weeks/months! :) I'm on the most recent season, which is the final one... so sad.

Ahhh Noemi, I'm thrilled to hear you completed the Level 1 course - that is amazing. Congrats to you as well! How was it? It makes me smile knowing introduced you to reiki. I hope you continue forward. It just gets better and better with time and experience. You'll find that it affects your life in so many beautiful ways :) xo

Practicing: Reiki, in a whole new way. If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I just returned home from a 3-day mega-healing intensive class to get my certification as a Reiki Master-Teacher! I'm now able to instruct others and give attunements to this ancient yet evolving artform. We learned advanced techniques, two new symbols, and how to incorporate crystals into the practice. The more I discover about Reiki, the more it blows me away. This love-energy is so powerful - truly life-changing. I can't wait to share more of this gift with you - stay tuned, friends. Reading: Art,... Continue reading

I had no idea you could check out ukes (and apparently other things) from the library! How fun! Are you going to take one for a test drive? My mom is always trying to get me to use the library more often (she was a life-long librarian before she retired) and I'm finally starting to put my card to use. I'm just really bad at returning things on time, ha. I'm starting a nice little fine collection ;)

Good for you! I think when I have littles, I'll be decorating as early as I can. It's such a special time with children and they'll remember it fondly when they get older :) xo

Last weekend I had every good intention to decorate for the holidays. Normally, this doesn't happen until later in the month. But we had our first snowfall and everything felt so magical. I flicked on the fire, cranked up Christmas tunes, lit a few candles, and opened the door to our doll-sized storage closet. Everything ended there. Our holiday decorations were buried in the very back, underneath a mess of pet fountains, Halloween costumes, recycled gift bags and a gaggle of other miscellaneous much-needed junk. Then I glanced over to the only corner of our house that could possibly fit... Continue reading
