for your friday

Calling all pattern lovers! I've been feeling all sorts of prints lately, from abstract to geometric to florals... check out my favorite patterns for home decor on the blog today: jojotastic.com

Happy Friday, you guys! I feel like I go through phases… there’s definitely been a black and white phase, but also a simplification phase. Both of those are very ‘now’ in my life. Even last weekend I spent tons of time simplifying and purging in my wardrobe.  But every once in a while I fall in love with a pattern and can’t get it out of my head. There’ve been a few patterns, actually! I think it all started with the discovery of this Baggu for Urban Outfitters collection… YOU GUYS, IT’S SO GOOD. I need it all.

Seattle like a Local // playing tour guide

Featured Video Play Icon

Playing tour guide in Seattle (and the surrounding gorgeous Pacific Northwest) is one of my absolute favorite things to do. I truly believe this city and the surrounding forests, waterways, and mountains are some of the most breathtaking places on the earth. Big words, I know. I’m just so grateful to live here, but even more so when friends come to see it, too. Last month my friends Danielle and Wil Rivera of Danfredo Photo + Films visited the Pacific Northwest for the first time ever, so naturally I had to show them the best of the best: delicious snacks, strong dranks, stunning mountains, and rocky beaches — the real PNW experience. They shot stills and video during the trip and I just HAD to share…

5 cool raffia beach totes

searching for my summer go-to bag! check out my 5 favorite raffia beach totes over on jojotastic.com

You guys, the weather in Seattle the past couple of weeks has me feeling like I live in California! It’s been hot and sunny almost every day and, even though we’ve each been stocking up on summer basics, my outfits are still far from beach-ready. I’m still missing the most important part: a beach tote!

Raffia tote bags have a special place in my heart. I can hear waves crashing on the shore just from looking at all the bright colors and fun patterns of these vintage-inspired bags. Don’t even get me started how much I loved the ones with pom-poms, like Capri Woven Tote with Pom Charms (pictured above) from Nordstrom.

recipe // kale chickpea seed salad

YUM! get this healthy, filling, and easy recipe for Kale Chickpea + Seed Salad with Miso Yogurt Vinaigrette on jojotastic.com (and save this pin for later!)

Ever since completing my deck makeover, I want to eat every meal outdoors. When we’re not grilling, I try to keep things simple by instead eating freshly made salads full of seasonal produce. Typically I’ll drizzle olive oil and balsamic over the salad, but I’ve rapidly grown bored of that. I asked our recipe contributor Emma to suggest a new spin on a salad for me: something flavorful, packed with protein, and topped with a delicious savory dressing. This Kale Chickpea + Seed Salad with Miso Yogurt Vinaigrette recipe is her answer and, believe me, you’ll wanna make this your lunch asap!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that there’s a new Drake album… and, confession time, I can’t get enough! The album was on loop basically all weekend long. It’s on Spotify, so be sure to give it a listen. Maybe that’s why today’s downloadable wallpapers feel so funky-fresh? I wanted the artwork to feel summery in color with a palette that I am always drawn to: juicy, rich, saturated tones of aqua and magenta, with with faded complementary hues. The artwork is a bit bohemian + geometric, but still in my painterly hand. I love when my art feels slightly unfinished and imperfect — I’m not one to make sure the lines are straight. I kept it loose and full of movement for this one!
