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…
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.

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!
