1: Casey and I are in desperate need of a living room wall makeover, so I’m really loving this gallery wall for inspiration

2: Our bedroom in the apartment is really dark, which can be nice when sleeping in, but I still love a bright yet cozy bedroom.

3: Sharing this image just because these cute girls make me smile.

4: Again with that natural light! A nice bright, white kitchen would be so amazing to cook in, don’t you think?

5: Colorful clothing is great, but sometimes all black everything is all a girl needs.

6: Working on attaining cool fonts and came across these awesome free ones!

As I ease into January and get back into the swing of things, I’ve been thinking about a few things I want to try and be more consistent with on a daily basis. I have my bigger life long goals, like keeping up with my gym routine, eating healthy and drinking more water, but I also have smaller, slightly less intimidating goals.

One in particular being more proactive and present on Pinterest! I remember a few years ago when Ben Silbermann approached me at an IFB conference, handed me his business card and told me he had started a site called Pinterest. I didn’t really know what it was back then but it’s so amazing to see where the company is today. It’s truly such a great place to find and share inspirations as well as a great way to keep everything visually organized.


1: I really want to be somewhere warm in the upcoming months. These palm trees have me dreaming of the beaches in California.

2: Cream colored, cozy turtleneck knits are my jam. I love my oversized one I found for $5 at Value Village!

3: DIY chalkboard mugs! LOVE.

4: The lovely Arielle from Something Navy, looking stylish as usual. I want to recreate/DIY this look with a cheap pair of faux leather pants.

5: Easy to make (and healthy) egg muffins! Yummmm.

6: Le sigh. Emmanuelle Alt makes me want to own only simple, classic pieces. And tuck my shirt in. And wear blazers.

That said, as silly as this might sound, sometimes I just get so overwhelmed with everything that is out there and feel like I’m on social media overload at times. That there are more blogs and vlogs than I can ever read or watch, that I’m not posting enough on my own platforms and that I will never be able to tackle and clean out my overcrowded inbox. Because the truth is, instead of delving in, sometimes I just shut down. Does that ever happen to you guys? Ugh, it can be the worst!

But the thing is, I’m not complaining or being negative…actually the opposite. I want to take a look at what’s overwhelming me and slowly but surely, carve out time for what needs to be taken care of, take it one step at a time, and get it done. So, one of the things I’m starting with is, growing and expanding my presence on Pinterest. I want to share more inspiration with you guys, because well, it’s visually stimulating, inspiring, makes me happy, and it’s fun! I’m excited to delve in even deeper and fall down many amazing “pin holes” if you will.

So, in an effort to start flexing my P-muscles, I dug around and found a bunch of images (and the sites they came from) that I like at the moment to share with you guys. You can follow even more of my pins and boards here, so I hope you guys will follow along!

As always, thanks for stopping by and reading what I have to say.

I’m always so appreciative of you guys and your amazing support. xoxo


Good morning, everyone! Can you believe it’s the first Monday of the new year? I’m excited for what’s to come in 2015 but so very thankful for what 2014 brought me, which included my sweet boyfriend, Casey. He’s quite a gem and I feel so lucky to have him in my life. I posted about him being a saint here, because when we took these photos, it was FREEZING outside. Poor guy didn’t have gloves on and let me tell you, the wind coming off the water was brutal. I can handle cold weather, but when you involve  crazy wind, no thank you. He patiently shot and reshot until I got what I wanted photo-wise, and kept a smile on his face for most of it. My Dad is the same way – patient and supportive. Thank goodness for these two amazing men in my life.



Can you tell by the look on my face that I’m freezing? Haha, I was trying so hard to keep it together! Oh, what I will do for a good photograph!



As you can see, I am desperately trying to hold my hair down and keep it from blowing straight up or across my face. I’m sure I looked insane to any bystanders, especially when I took off my jacket, but I really wanted to show you guys my sweater! :)

I am very lucky and blessed in so many ways and feel thankful for all that I have. Thank you to you all, my friends and loved ones, and to 2014. You were a good year.

Here’s to a fantastic Monday! xo

Hi everyone! How was your holiday? I’ve been in heaven here, spending the past two weeks enjoying quality time with my family, seeing good friends and cuddling with my favorite pup, Barney.

One of my favorite things to do when at home in Seattle is to visit an area called Richmond Beach, which is where I grew up. My friend Steph and I drove down there last week and took in the beautiful view and reminisced about being 17, driving around listening to music and talking about boys.


There is something about being next to a large body of water (more specifically, the ocean) that is so calming to me. I could sit on a piece of driftwood for hours, with this view in front of me, and be as happy as a clam.

Happy (almost) New Year! Thanks for your continuous love and support.

I wouldn’t be here without you guys! xoxo

Hat: Stetson / Shirt: Zara (similar option) / Sweater: H&M / Vest: H&M / Jeans: 7FAM / Boots: UGG (gift) / Watch: Coach (The rose gold option doesn’t seem to be available anymore, but here is the original style in gold.)


(Photo taken by my dear friend, Stephanie.)

Spent some much needed time at the beach yesterday. I was lucky to grow up about a block away from the water and it still has such a calming effect on me.

(Also, I’m super in love with this chunky scarf I just picked up from H&M. It looks like it’s sold out online right now, but they seem to still have them in stores.)


Barney cuddles!


Bubbly and Christmas movies with the best friend. Can’t believe we have known each other since we were 7-years-old.


Festive poinsettias at Swanson’s Nursery, and my new loafers from Everlane. :)


Real live reindeer! I had never seen one before and was in total awe. Don’t worry, they were well taken care of and seemed very relaxed and happy.


My parents and I went and checked out the new Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room last week, and I have to say, it was pretty impressive. I am all for independent coffee shops and roasters, but let’s be honest. I was born and raised in Seattle, so I do still feel some loyalty to Starbucks.



Me and Barney taking a rest after helping Mom decorate the tree. He is actually laying on top of me. If you look by the leg of the coffee table down on the left, you can see my slipper. His head and upper half of his body are resting on my stomach and legs. He’s so funny!


I love red wine in the winter. Helena also loves it when I switch over to red from my usual Sauvignon Blanc, haha.


Spotted this amazing coat while in Nordstrom and just had to have it. Don’t worry it’s faux, but still so soft and cozy.


SWOOOON. (Especially the one on the top left.)


Wore this funny holiday turtleneck to an ugly sweater party. It has little skiing bears on it, which made me smile. I paired it with red pants, tied a chunky cream turtleneck sweater around my waist, and topped the look off with a red bow in my hair. Classy as can be!


The love bug, ready to play.


Me and my 98-year-old grandmother, Ruthie, out for a little walk, taking in the sights. :)


My parents surprised me with a ticket to see the Seattle Men’s Chorus perform their annual holiday tradition, “Our Gay Apparel.” It was phenomenal. We all left laughing, singing and really feeling the spirit of the holiday. Thanks, Mom and Dad, I had a blast! xo

Well, that’s all for now from my current neck of the woods.

Hope you are enjoying the holiday season wherever you are.

Merry (almost) Christmas! xoxo


Hi guys, happy Monday! Hope everyone’s weekend was great. I spent mine relaxing with my family and catching up with friends. It feels so good to be home.


My Dad shot these photos for me when we were out and about running errands in Fremont. I thought this wall mural was a nice, colorful change and felt like it contrasted nicely with my mostly grey and blue outfit, which now brings me to my look.

So, I had my eye on these grey leather pants and finally was able to snag them due to them being heavily on sale and some unused credit at Shopbop. They are so comfortable and such a pretty color. I actually took them to the tailor to get them shortened, right after photographing them, and can’t wait to get them back in a few weeks. I have a feeling they will be in heavy rotation over the next couple of months.




My new, most favorite flats…The Modern Loafer in Midnight by Everlane.

They are super comfortable and really well made. The leather is soft and flexible but also weather resilient at the same time. I absolutely love them and am currently on the wait list for the burgundy, and black version as well.






Have a happy week! xoxo

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I am so excited because I am flying to Seattle today for the holidays. I can’t wait to see my friends, family and of course, Barney! I packed this skirt with me and plan on wearing it on New Year’s Eve with Casey. Not sure what we are doing yet, but regardless, I always like to dress up a bit and this number is the perfect piece to work into my outfit. The tiny scallops, box pleats and silvery fabric add a festive touch and gives off a sweet and feminine vibe, which I really like. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to show you easy ways to style it up, simply by changing out the top and necklace, creating two different fun and festive looks!
