inauguration protest artwork by @samhahn. free printable download art for women's marches to protest trump.

Today is a big deal, you guys. A terrible, terrible man is being sworn in as our President and I don’t really have the words to express my feelings. I’m pretty much lacking any eloquent response to this moment in history. Nor do I have much insight to share with you. I’m just plain sad (no exclamation point). I will marching tomorrow here in Seattle and urge you to do so, as well. My friend and artist Samantha Hahn created these incredible free downloadable posters for you to carry during the marches — I urge you to check them out, print them, and use them.

In case you need a distraction from the madness of the Inauguration, here are my favorite reads of the week:

I’m lusting after Robin’s blazer in a BIG way. Check it out here.

Proof that I need to learn how to needle felt ASAP.

Pretty damn jealous of House of Hipsters latest renovation project. The materials are goooorg.

An amazing guide for buying vintage from House of Brinson.

There are so many things to obsess over in this makeover: the mirror, the wallpaper, the art… OMG.

I shared my favorite boho rugs for a kitchen over on Rugs Direct this week.

Grace from The Stripe is my go-to for 2 things: beauty recommendations and books. Here’s her January reading list.

recent styling & photography work: StCao Ceramics

handmade ceramics from Seattle. navy blue glaze earthenware with speckled white interior. black porcelain pinch bowls. artisan made colander and berry bowl.

One of my goals for this year was to take on more styling work. Recently I was lucky enough to partner with one of the artists in my new studio building and help her shoot photos for her freshly opened online shop, StCao Ceramics! Steph needed help not only with styling her gorgeous mugs, bowls, colanders, and plates, but also shooting the photos themselves. I often shoot the blog photos here, so I welcomed the challenge and had a blast working on this project. Here are a few of the photos:

recipe // healthy veggie sushi rolls

Looking for a healthy snack? Try this recipe for healthy veggie sushi rolls with omelet eggs, swiss chard, peanuts, coconut, and more!

Are you a meals person or a snacker? I’m definitely the latter, always grazing on small bites throughout the day. Now that I’ve got a new studio complete with a fridge, I’ve been keeping it stocks with snacks so I don’t crash. Protein and fresh veggies really do the trick and lately I’m loving these veggie sushi rolls that we whipped up. The eggs provide tons of protein, while the veggies and nuts provide the perfect crunchy bite that I always seem to crave (I’m more into savory flavors than sweet). Be sure to make a batch of our healthy sushi rolls for your next workday snack!

closet clean-out tips for a tiny house (with Glad!)

How to clean out your closet with @gladproducts. My best tips and tricks to get your closet organized, especially for a tiny house or small space! Plus, tips for how to donate and a giveaway on Jojotastic.com #GladtoGive #ad

This post is sponsored by Glad. All opinions are my own and always will be! Thanks for supporting content that keeps Jojotastic going.

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!

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.

Erin from Design for Mankind wrote a new book and it’s amazing. Be sure to grab a copy of Chasing Slow: Courage to Journey Off the Beaten Path cuz it’s gonna be amazing.

Are you into pink? Check out this awesome project from House of Hipsters.

This vintage buying guide is ESSENTIAL.

A free downloadable minimal calendar for your tech.

I’ve been wanting a pair of slip-on loafers like this for a long, long time.

Also, it’s Friday the 13th?? I’m a bit superstitious… good luck out there!

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. I’ve had to get really clever with finding ways to sneak in extra storage, but I’ve noticed more and more that lots of furniture pieces are doing double-duty. It seems like the world is slowing coming around to the tiny house revolution! With so many amazing options out there, I wanted to share 20 of my favorite pieces with you,

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.
