Favorite three things on the Internet right now: This Fantastic Mr. Fox costume idea is brilliant and adorable. Did you/are you dressing up this year? I’ll be a sponsor over at SRSLYLIZ.COM next month. If you aren’t a reader, become one! Sannah Kvist’s project titled, “All I Own.”

Currently on my shelf…waiting to be read. The Naked and the Dead The Fates Will Find Their Way American Rose Freedom White Teeth The Secret Lives of People in Love What’s on your list? Lately I’ve found that sharing book recommendations can either be a really fun conversation or a really awkwa

I’m in the process of finding some fun items for my office at work and I thought it would be fun to create a little wishlist. Cheeses is Love print. This isn’t just on my wishlist. I bought this. I LOVE CHEESE! LaCie firewire speakers on Amazon Allen + Roth light at Lowe’s Ripple Ivory [&helli

My weekend was filled with lots of Columbus and I loved it. A portrait session in German Village, a trip to Tigertree, an early dinner at The Jury Room, and a fun photoshoot at Brothers Drake. While not pictured above, we also drank and bought wine at Camelot Cellars, saw a friend’s band perform, and [&he

Some of my favorite lady bloggers. All very different, but I love them all the same. Sonya just started blogging again (which made my year!) over here. sassfacedblogpunch. I won’t lie. The Bachelor/ette are my guilty pleasure shows. But I for real love Ashley’s blog, Say No to Cosmo. Whether she&#82

Don’t worry, this won’t be one of those “I-KNOW-EVERYTHING-SO-YOU-SHOULD-LISTEN-TO-ME-POSTS.” I created this post to spark conversation and then hopefully it will help you decide: Rdio or Spotify? For those that don’t know, they are both a streaming music service available on comp

My triple round up for this week includes: I am so excited for She & Him’s Christmas album. A Very She & Him Christmas comes out October 24. I will be playing Christmas music, then, for over two months. Kate shares her recipe for rosemary gin lemonade slushes. May summer live on forever. The Mixe

I eat local. I shop local. I even design local. I love all my clients (whether they live near or far) but working with those that are local feels like you’re just helping a neighbor. I’ve been able to work with Andrea from Food Embrace, Megan from The Bibliophiles & Beverages Society, Mark from

I have many wishlists. I have one on Amazon, one on Pinterest, a wishlist tag in Evernote + various other materialistic ways in which I track all my ‘wants.’ The thing is, I don’t shop very much. Most of the things that I want, I’ll never have. But somehow, making a list or compiling tho

Choosing a typeface is a critical step in design. If I’m not creating a custom typeface, I usually spend a lot of time researching which ones I want to use. As a freelance designer, I do invest in typefaces. And when they’re offered for free, I donate a sum of money to the designer. I […]

Now that the 30 Day Photo Challenge is over, I’m excited to get back to regular blogging. This is my 50th Monday Link Love and I’m excited to be sharing some fun content from The Internets. Don’t Fear the Internet. While this isn’t new, I still wanted to share. It’s basic HTML &am

I recently spent an afternoon at the Columbus Museum of Art with my grandmother and Adam. It was my first visit and I really enjoyed it. While being a smaller museum, the quality of work and themed rooms really made the visit unique. My favorite pieces were those of Dale Nichols (top image: with his […]

Even though the majority of my trip was spent on Nantucket, I was able to spend an afternoon in Boston! Kellyn and I took the ferry/bus back to Boston on Thursday and I was able to see a bit of the city. The highlights: finally meeting Rachael (and her beautiful baby girl), eating oysters, traveling with [&hel

Last week I ventured out to Nantucket to visit one of my best friends, Kellyn. It’s absolutely gorgeous out there and I was treated to sunny, 70 degree weather. After leaving, I realized that I could easily get used to living right on the beach, living without allergies, and eating seafood every day. View

I love stats. I thought it was pretty interesting to break some of the details down. Especially the fact that there were WAY more dog photos than cat photos. (GO DOGS!) When compiling all the information, I excluded myself from all the totals and only used data from the submissions that made it into the [&helli

Day 30: Yourself…30 Days Later. The 30 Day Photo Challenge is officially over! Can you believe it? To me, it went by incredibly fast and I can’t believe it’s October already. Obviously, compared to Day 1, there is a substantial amount of people that didn’t make it into this post but we s

Day 29: Clouds! I love the variety of clouds in this set. Sometimes a cloudy day is perfect and other times it’s nice to see only a few in the sky. I love #6! 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 Tomorrow’s post will be of the last

Day 28 : Incorporate Motion. To me, motion in photos makes them more candid and a better reflection of what was really happening. I think this set is a great example. Your favorites? 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 Tomorrow I’ll be po

Day 27: Natural Light. I pretty much only shoot with natural light. I really admire those that can handle studio and artificial lighting well. I am not one of those people. What do you prefer? 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | […]
