Calling all Seattle readers! I’m hosting a really fun shopping event with our local Madewell at University Village this Friday and I’d love to meet you. I’ll be sharing styling tips + droppin’ some Pinterest knowledge, so be sure to stop by.
I feel like I’m constantly changing up my beauty routine, testing out new products, and falling in love with them. Here are a few of the beauty products I’ve been loving lately:
Invigorate Bath Salts from Hillockburn Farm (c/0) — I met these amazing folks during the Sodo Flea last month and it was basically a love fest right away. I’ve been using their lovely bar soaps for the past few weeks, but my favorite thing is soaking in these salts. They smell incredible and I find that they help to soothe my aching muscles after a hard workout.
S.W. Basics Rosewater Spray (c/o) — quite honestly, this is the best rosewater spray I’ve used. I got sunburnt last week and sprayed this onto my skin and immediately felt less like my skin was burning with the fire of 1,000 suns. I also find that the fragrance of this is the most true to real, live roses… probably because literally the only ingredient is rosewater.
The bedroom makeover has sort of stalled… don’t get me wrong, we’ve made some EPIC progress, but at the same time there are a few big impact pieces that are still missing from the room. One in particular is a nightstand. I scored these lovely vintage Lane pieces on Craigslist for a song, but as soon as the wallpaper went up, they suddenly didn’t feel right. There’s something about the scale and the tone of the wood grain that isn’t jiving with my vision. It’s actually been really hard for me to figure out why they aren’t quite right! And thus began my search for a white nightstand that is also small space friendly…
I launched my business, Katie Williamsen Web & Social Media Consulting, LLC, in January of 2016 while working a 9-to-5 in a traditional office setting. Although I enjoyed my day job, I wished my schedule had more flexibility. When I went full-time in August of that year, I loved having the ability to schedule my day and work at the times I had the most energy. On top of that, working from home was a perk for sure! Now that I’ve been working from home full-time for almost nine months, I’ve found that it really works for me. I’m not going to lie, I can certainly fall prey to distractions, but I love having the flexibility to work early in the morning and then head to a 9 am yoga class.
Every Friday night, Sean and I go to the same local bar. It’s 2 blocks from my house, we don’t have to get dressed up, and their burgers are really, really good. I was having a rough day and I asked our bartender, Phyllis, with whom I’ve grown quiiite close, for something strong. She whipped up this Dirty Shirley and I knew immediately that I had to share it with you guys. If you’re having a crappy day and want an easy-to-make cocktail that’s delicious and strong… this is it.

When I bought #mytinybungalow, I knew I’d have to get creative with my small space storage solutions. After all, this house doesn’t have a single closet! I’m in the process of installing one in the bedroom, but until then, I’ve had to get really creative. A few simple hacks have made a really big impact on our day-to-day here, and thanks to eBay and their Spring Hub, it felt like the perfect time to share my tips with you guys!
