In light of last week’s news (more on that here), I have some work to do in the house before Sean can officially move in. Our top priority is making sure there’s enough room for both of us to live in #mytinybungalow with all of our stuff until we’re able to do a full-on bedroom renovation (like adding a closet). The first step is a good old-fashioned closet clean-out, so I partnered with Glad to share my best tips and tricks for staying organized in a closet-less home!

the friday edit

spring resort 2017 Diane Von Furstenberg collection. designer fashion. pumpkin colored silk and small prints.

Fridays are sort of a funny thing. I’m usually so burnt out by the end of the week, that I often don’t have it in me to research and write a totally new post unless I’m feeling hugely inspired. If anything, all I want to do is share a bunch of links with you guys that I’ve found especially inspiring, thought-provoking, interesting… whatever. Nothing cutesy, nothing too intense. Just a bunch of links to stuff I really, really like. I think I feel this way because I used to have a ‘normal’ job where I’d zone out on a Friday afternoon, just waiting for the clock to strike 6 pm so I could go home. These links could potentially help you fill that void. So here goes…

4 Things You Need to Know about Planned Parenthood — if you read one thing this week, please let it be this.

Spicy coconut noodles… I think this will be our dinner tonight.

And I think #mytinybungalow needs this door knocker… in a big way.

I don’t know if I’ve ever divulged just how small #mytinybungalow is… it’s 640 sqft total! Yup, pretty darn small — and without a single closet to boot.

recipe // healthy kombucha cocktail with pomelo + sage

The prettiest pink cocktail! "Healthy" kombucha cocktail recipe with pomelo + sage. Includes freshly squeezed pomelo juice, whiskey, rose water, kombucha, and sage leaves. Get the full recipe on Jojotastic.com

Confession: I don’t know what this cocktail recipe tastes like with the whiskey. The truth is that I’m attempting to go the entire month of January without drinking (aka Drynuary), so I could only taste test this one as a mocktail! Oops… but let’s be real here, whiskey just makes everything better. I knew I wanted to share a healthy cocktail with you guys this month, so we combined the delicious citrus flavor of pomelo with the effervescence and deliciously sour taste of kombucha. Even if you’re taking the month off from booze, this recipe is heavenly.

a few thoughts on cohabitation, omg

Moving in together? Here’s my personal essay on this big step in our relationship, cohabitation! Get all of my tips and offer up some much-needed advice on Jojotastic.com

Over the past few months, the boyfriend and I have been discussing moving in together. Yup, COHABITATION. Big steps. I mean, we basically already live together because I have a comfortable house and he has a sailboat that isn’t the warmest during the winter months. We eat our meals together, our dogs are always together, we share laundry duties. On some practical level, cohabitation is nothing especially new… but putting a label on it is, especially in #mytinybungalow. Did you know that it doesn’t have a single closet and measures at 640 sqft total? And those are just my practical thoughts. There are so many other things to think about… perhaps you guys have some advice?
