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!
Happy Friday, you guys! I wanted to take the time to let you in on the news of one of my favorite sales of the year with Shopbop. It’s one of those sales that just keeps getting better the more you spend — 20% off orders under $500 or 25% off orders of $500 or more. And there is a LOT on sale. I’m heading to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree next month, so this is a great time for me to stock up on some summery pieces. These are just a few of my picks:
The sale ends April 14, so be sure to make your picks today!
ps — if you haven’t left your feedback already, I’d love to hear from you for the 2017 Reader Survey.
Hi guys, just chiming in to introduce our new DIY editor, Hannah of Homemade Banana! She’s a DIY and crafting pro with super cute style and a some really fun, fresh ideas to share. I’m excited to switch things up a bit and showcase Hannah’s great projects and voice! — Joanna
Here in Seattle, we’re well-versed in the art of rainy day style. Galoshes are an absolute must-have and a good raincoat is indispensable… but for those cool, grey days when April showers seem endless and May flowers seem so far away, desperate measures must be taken. It’s no secret that Joanna is a big fan of all things tassel related, so it seemed only logical to fight the rainy day doldrums with a beautifully bohemian umbrella decked out in colorful handmade tassels — and a few pom poms for good measure.

What a whirlwind my recent trip to London was! I’m definitely one of those travelers who does a lot of research before I arrive, but I also make sure to leave room for those happy discoveries that travel (especially international travel) always brings. Virgin Atlantic sent me and 5 other Seattle-based bloggers to London to celebrate the launch of their new direct flights between Seattle and London, so of course I was totally in for a trip to explore this gorgeous, historical city. Without further ado, here’s my travel guide for London!
