ARCHIVE: All Lifestyle

Studio - painting 3My days here have been flying by and I have really been trying to focus on getting this space finished and start working on some projects I have in mind. I’m also currently expanding my styling business out here so that has been my other main focus as of late, which is why I’ve been taking a little break from outfit posts. But I thought I would give you guys a little update on the office and share where I’m at with it all!
Studio - painting 2I picked a super white paint to brighten up the space and freshen up the walls since this is where I will be doing all my filming for YouTube.
Studio - painting 4The space now has some furniture, however I am still waiting on a few things so I haven’t taken any more photos recently. But my rug should hopefully be showing up by next week since it was on backorder and I purchased this desk and this fun clothing rack. I am also working on figuring out which artwork I want to go up on the walls, but am hoping that the whole space will come together by early September!Studio - painting 1This originally was going to be my beauty closet, but instead, I am going to remove the two bottom shelves, install a horizontal pole to hang clothing and then add some drawers on the very bottom for jeans and pants etc. I also now have a large floor to ceiling shelving unit that is perfect for all my makeup and products, which I am in the process of organizing. Eeek!

Anyway, I have all sorts of plans for this space and can not wait to continue sharing them with you guys, so definitely keep an eye on this space over the next couple of weeks! You can follow my Instastories as well at @mystylepill. :) xo

Studio 1Happy Tuesday! Last week I shared some of my office inspiration with you guys, but I definitely wanted to make sure I shared what my soon-to-be-studio looked like beforehand, because I think before and after projects are so fun to watch, don’t you?

This space in particular never really had a purpose other than being used for random storage, so the flow and aesthetic didn’t have a cohesive feel to it, but I’ve made great progress on it so far, which feels great. Anyway, many more photos of the during and after to come!

Here is what I started with…Studio 2 Studio 3Studio 7

If you’ve been following me on my Instastories (@mystylepill), you know that I am in Seattle right now, and am currently in the process of expanding my styling business here (well, really all over), and am going to start splitting my time between here and New York. That means I need to create a functioning work space while in the PNW, so I’m starting to poke around Pinterest and Instagram to get some inspiration, and am getting really excited at the idea of creating a fresh place to create and film content!

The images above are of some offices that really inspire me and make me feel as if I can completely transform even just a wall with the right pieces and decor. I am making progress on my new work space and just finished painting the walls so now it’s time for the fun stuff! Right now I am in the market for a new desk, some rugs, shelving, art work, and plants that are fairly resilient. If you guys have any recommendations, I would love to hear your suggestions! xo

Sorry for that brief hiatus last week! Between traveling to Seattle (I’m currently expanding my business out west and transitioning to becoming bicoastal), work projects and clients, my poor blog fell to the wayside. But not to worry, I am back and getting into a good groove here. Right now, my main home project I am working on is decorating my new work space and turning it into an awesome studio where I can film all my YouTube videos. I am really excited to share the process along with the before and after photos with you guys, so stay tuned for that very soon. In the mean time, I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start and that the month of August is treating you well so far. Thanks for hanging in there with me during these changing times, I so appreciate your patience, support and understanding! xo

This past weekend, my best friend from college came out to visit me for a long weekend, and it was exactly what the doctor ordered. I’ve been going through a lot of transition lately and sometimes you just need your people to rally around you to make it all feel better. I keep reminding myself that I need to just take one step at a time and things will fall into place the way they are intended to, but that can be hard when you are in thick of change, uncertainty and life challenges. Anyway, things are looking up and I feel so lucky to have such supportive and amazing people in my life that love and take care of me. Thank you, Eang, for coming out. I love you! xo

I hope you all had a great weekend and now for some links I am excited to share with you guys!

I think it’s safe to say I am a perfume junkie. I just added this unexpected scent to my collection.

I’m heading to Seattle for the rest of the summer and think this hat would be perfect for casual afternoons at the park.

I see these backpacks everywhere and really want this mini guy in graphite.

I put this on everything I eat now.

Three LWDs for under $100: here, here and here.

And now some fun links courtesy of my lovely intern, Keaton.

I’m obsessed with this show. It’s so juicy and dark.

This magnet is so cute and so accurate.

This brand is one of my new favorites. How pretty are their necklaces?

My new favorite coffee table book. Writers and their clothing? Sign me up.

I love this top, such a cool take on a button up.

For the past week, my family and I have been camping and hiking in and around Bryce Canyon National Park and Zion National Park, and it’s so amazing here! To be able to disconnect, be fully present with my family, soak up my surroundings and take a bit of a digital cleanse seems to be exactly what I’ve needed. Unfortunately it tends to be a rarity these days but it’s so important to take time off from the internet, our computer and phones, don’t you think?

In a few days we are going to road trip back to Seattle so I can see my Grandmother, who is 101 (!) and a few other loved ones, but for now, here are some fun links from around the web that I wanted to share with you guys. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week! xo

I’ve been reading this book and can’t put it down. Thanks for lending it to me, Grace!

Recent Forever purchases include these nude pom pom ankle strap heels, this nude slip dress and these faux suede blush slides. (I’m sensing a color theme here…)

My collaboration with Cooper & Ella + Dream Downtown was covered in WWD!

Banana Republic finds include this wide brim, brown straw hat, (which also happens to be one of Olivia Palermo’s picks), another pair of suede slides this time in a rich “whiskey” brown and this crisp white off the shoulder shirt.

The Real Problem With Being Child-Free and Unmarried In Your Mid-30s

Next up, my lovely intern, Keaton.

Here are some links she’s been loving from around the web!

I’m really into this jacket because it’s cool and lightweight, and fits my compulsive need to bring a coat everywhere even if its 100 degrees outside!

Since I’m obsessed with denim on denim, these overalls are my best friend.

Now that it’s summer I’m looking forward to finally finishing this book.

Perfect for small spaces and adding some extra seating to a room.

The funniest comedy special I’ve ever seen.

Has my mug search finally come to an end?

Really digging these workout leggings.

Such a cool article.

Have a great week friends and don’t forget to stop by here this week because there will be some fun posts up about my summer uniform, and how to dress up denim shorts!  xo
