When I say “bridal shower of the century,” I’m not exaggerating. I think Jaymee’s shower (thrown by an insanely talented team, including Miss Style Eater!) definitely qualifies for that title. When I arrived a few hours early to help set up, I was immediately blown away by all the details: the food, the flowers, the table settings, the colors…the kind of details that Pinterest dreams are made of.

Nothing less than the best for the beautiful bride-to-be!

John and I recently had a conversation about the longevity of social media outlets and how long we thought each one would last. I was trying to convince him that Instagram would be around for quite awhile. After all, why would Facebook invest a billion dollars in it if it didn’t have some sort of lasting potential…? But then again, maybe that’s just wishful thinking on my part since I eat/sleep/breathe the ‘Gram.

It’s pretty apparent by now that I take my Instagram very seriously. Waaaay more serious than the average bear. I set all sorts of rules + boundaries for myself. I agonize over what filter to use like my life depends on it. I also believe that less is more when it comes to hashtags. And by less, I mean no more than three. Not. Ever. All of the photos above are under the hashtag #onmydesk, which makes makes for a fun ongoing series that I am constantly adding to. It’s not exactly original (as made obvious by the 1000+ photos under that name), but it perfectly embodies what my day is looking like on any random Wednesday. Plus, it sure beats what’s going on behind the camera (#disheveledfreelancerwearingsweatpantsalldayeveryday).

Like I said, I have boundaries.

This past weekend in San Diego was quite successful when it came to finding new desk supplies that I probably didn’t need, but let’s face it, I totally needed. Between a visit to the swap meet and a stop at Fashion Valley Mall where I discovered my new favorite shop, Typo, I came home with some real gems.

I’m taking this stroke of luck as a sign that I need to move back to San Diego. Like, yesterday.

stamps, teal scissors, tape dispenser, double hole punch (a gift from Amy!): typo // stapler, red fringe scissors: kobey swap meet // neon pink ink: paper source // yellow tape: target

While in Cambria last weekend, I came across the most amazing little succulent shop called Grow. It’s not often that a store will blow me away with well-designed details and carefully-curated product selections, but this one stopped me dead in my tracks. I was (and still am!) completely obsessed. Words won’t do it justice, but if I could sum it up into a single phrase, I would describe Grow as the Anthropologie of succulent shops. It’s that good.








If my bank account would have allowed for it, I easily could have walked away with one of everything. Instead, I brought home that bright yellow pot that you see above and had a great time filling it with succulents yesterday. Like I mentioned on Instagram, I sense a new obsession coming on…

This past weekend, I was up in Cambria celebrating Jamie + Kareem’s wedding (I’ve only talked about this event once, twice or maybe ten times on this blog). It really was the perfect weekend getaway for everyone, because quite honestly, you can’t beat 60 degree weather + those dramatic Central Coast ocean views. I got home late last night and instead of unpacking and climbing into bed, I immediately opened up Photoshop and started editing the almost 1300 (!) photos I took over the past 72 hours. And of course, once I start editing, I can’t stop myself! Here are a few photos from the big day:















It was such a great weekend. More photos to come!

This is what my Wednesday morning looked like:


Packing stamp orders while wearing workout clothes on top, pajamas on the bottom and hair haphazardly shoved into my headband. There was definitely no makeup involved and – real talk – probably no deodorant either. Biz cas at it’s finest.

P.S. How awesome are the Olympics? Loving every minute of it! And loving the timeliness of the “London” stamp order that I shipped out this afternoon (:

A few weeks back I shared the invitations I designed for a tea party-themed bridal shower. Well, that bridal shower that we (it was nothing if not a collaborative effort) had been planning for months and months finally arrived and made for a wonderful day spent with great people. Family and friends, you need to get married more often! (;

Yesterday I told myself I would allot one hour for organizing before I had to get started on my work. Well…that one hour turned into several hours and I didn’t finish my actual work until 3am. Ahhh, the beauty of working from home…

Almost everything office/craft-related has a designated home now and I feel so much more inspired to get to work. It’s amazing what a little organization can do for the soul.
