I’ve had this blog since 2009. It’s transformed a lot. From a place where I started sharing my design work to a place where I introduced advertisers (that was the worst)…and I’ve simplified it yet again. I am designing + taking photos every single day and I needed to stretch another musc

I’ve been listening to Call Your Girlfriend (the podcast) lately. I love the topics, the casual vibes and the ladies. As you get older, you find that many of your friends don’t live in your apartment or down the street anymore. College friends disperse, bffs get jobs across the country and some of

I love supporting local but I don’t tend to post a lot about Columbus here on my blog because I know many of my readers live all over the world. That doesn’t mean that I don’t love my city. I REALLY love my city. We have the most amazing food scene, such talented artists and […]

I’m a woman. I’m under 30 years old. And I own my own business. Owning a business is one of the most rewarding and difficult things I’ve ever done. But every day that I wake up I have to smile because I’m able to do this. I get to do this. I don’t take the little things […

Over the past year, I’ve really simplified my wardrobe. This summer I found myself wearing the same few pieces over and over. 80% of those items are from Everlane. I’m hooked and I don’t see myself parting ways anytime soon! Before purchasing one of their silk blouses, I scoured the internet f

I don’t think, in the history of my blog, that I’ve ever posted a style/what I wore blog post. To be honest, I keep things pretty casual around here now that I’m self-employed. I’m usually in yoga pants and a tee but when I do get ready – I keep it basic. When Henry and Belle [&he

I ordered these salt and pepper shakers on One Kings Lane a few weeks ago. Lately, I can’t get enough of silver, bronze and gold. Without making our home TOO feminine, I’ve been slowly introducing small accents into our home and when I saw these – I couldn’t pass them up! In general, I l

While I’m away on vacation – Tori is guesting posting for me today! Enjoy! Hello again, everyone! So, in case you missed them, thus far in our Meaningful Art series, we’ve talked about how to remember your first home, and some DIY projects that will instantly make your house feel more like a

While speaking at The Influence Conference, I was introduced to fashionABLE – a non-profit that works with women who have been exploited due to the effects of poverty. I was incredibly moved by the stories and presentations and I instantly bought a scarf. Each scarf comes with a tag by one of the women th

While many of you are shivering and welcoming in the cool, fall weather…we will be off to a tropical vacation soon! Instead of planning some favorite warm weather outfits…I waited until the last minute and all the stores only have furry hoods and boots for sale. This board is a little bit of what I

So back in August, I vowed to take on a 60-day spending freeze. I cheated once and then again on day 50. I figure, “Eh whatever. I lasted 50 days.” Since then, I have shopped but I’ve been focusing on investing in pieces (vs impulsively shopping). During the freeze, I started slowly making a

Hello again, friends! So, in case you missed them, thus far in our Meaningful Art series, we’ve talked about how to remember your first home, and some DIY projects that will instantly make your house feel more like a home. Today, I wanted to share one of the most overlooked forms of art for your […

I recently bought this sparkly Nine West makeup bag ($10 at Marshall’s!) after selling a lot of my clothes at Plato’s Closet so I thought it would be fun to share exactly what I keep inside! I keep my makeup pretty simple. It’s never drastic and I like to stick with neutrals. I’m not exa

Another round of Good Goods! This month’s round up is a compilation of things currently on my wishlist so I can’t necessarily attest to whether they’re actually good. Feel free to check out my other Good Goods boards here. I try to limit my “materialistic” posts here on my blog a

Despite being on a spending freeze, I still keep track of some lovely goods that I’ve come across via blogs or Instagram. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve taken a screenshot of something someone has posted because I don’t want to forget it. Sometimes I wish there were better ways to

Another round up of my favorite goods lately: Symbol // Looks like such a great book! Want. Striped tank from Target // I bought it in 4 colors. Deborah Lippmann in Lara’s Theme // The perfect orange. Mineralogie cream concealer // Dark circles be gone. Water bottle with storage // Perfect for the gym! An

I thought I’d start June off with a Good Goods post (read my favorite goods from April). Here are my current favorites: Draw Your Tomorrow planner from Poketo: Seriously the best planner I’ve ever had. Lots of space for notes and the ability to start the year whenever you want! Giovanni 2Chic Shampo

This month’s Birchbox was delivered this past Saturday and it definitely wasn’t one of my favorites. The box was “Gossip Girl” themed (which doesn’t really mean a lot to me since I don’t watch the show) and had the following inside: Birchbox Notecards – This was an bonu

Lately I’ve been trying to avoid materialistic posts. I tend to get tired of that when scrolling through my Google Reader but beautiful, quality products still catch my eye. I thought maybe once a month I’d post a “Good Goods” post. It’ll be a combination of things I’ve recen

Time for my monthly Birchbox review! This month’s was lovely. First off, I loved the bright green tissue paper. I’m not a huge “pink” person and so I definitely noticed this month. Inside I found: Befine daily moisturizer and body scrub. The lotion (SPF 15) definitely smelled a bit like

Today’s post pretty much sums up the name of my blog. I have lots of little things to share with you so I thought today’s post can be a compilation of all sorts of things. First of all, I thought I’d share what I got my in Good & Lovely box this month. It definitely […]

I’m back on the Birchbox bandwagon! I’ve missed it and I’m glad that they started accepting new subscribers again (they had been maxed out for awhile). If you don’t remember, I reviewed Birchbox in November and December. This month’s box was great and had lots of variety. I receive

I received my monthly Good & Lovely box this month and I’m excited to share what’s inside. I really loved this box and the variety was amazing. Inside I found: An aromatherapy shower tablet Lavender body and hand lotion Gourmet chocolate covered pretzels Three bags of chamomile citrus tea Topica

It’s that weird time when the weather could be cold one day…warm the next. We had such a mild winter that obviously it hasn’t been that cold out but the temps seem to be ranging between 40-60 degrees. I thought I’d share some of my favorite “in-between” season items right no

About a month ago, I tweeted to Leigh Ann (a freelance makeup artist), “Hey you. I need help finding the perfect lip shade(s) and a brand. Can you assist? Do you do this kind of thing? ;)” She promptly responded and we set a date to meet at Nordstrom during my lunch hour. An hour […]

I found the two photos above (found on Scouts Honor Co./Xnet) and realized how much I adore peach hues. I like to wear peach in the summer when I’m rocking a tan but it’s a fun color to add to your wardrobe as hints of spring start popping up. Depending on what my tax return looks […]

I received the prettiest package in the mail last week. The experience of opening this beautiful scarf was as much of a delight as the actual product itself! Sonya, who I “met” through blogging last year, graciously made this scarf for me with the yarn that I supplied and I couldn’t be more th

Last month, I saw a blog advertisement for Good & Lovely. I remember clicking over to their site and thinking it looked like a fun monthly subscription box. It wasn’t until I kept reading and exploring that I realized it’s even better than just a box of goodies. It’s a box of goodies deliv

A few months ago I discovered Turntable Kitchen’s Pairing Boxes via Halle’s blog! I absolutely loved the idea and knew I’d want to subscribe soon and give it a try. The whole experience leading up to receiving my box was wonderful. I subscribed through their website and blogged about it the fo
