Things are really starting to come together here in #mytinybungalow for the living room + dining room makeover. If you’ve been following my Instagram stories, you’ve gotten lots of glimpses into all of the fun deliveries, material details, and how my pets are reacting to the new decor! I’ve also been doing a lot of vintage shopping because pieces with character and charm are so important to the design of any space. I’ve found so many treasures that I thought it would be fun to show you!

Remember when we started #smallspacesquad, a weekly round up of my and my friend & designer Erica Reitman‘s favorite small spaces on Instagram? (Catch up here!) Well, it’s time to share even more amazing, small space goodness with you guys — and encourage you to keep on tagging! The inspiration has been damn good lately, especially with the mix of dark and light, lots and lots of plants, and incredible styling.

It’s no secret that tiny living and small spaces are #trending in a big way these days, but I feel like there’s a certain disconnect when it comes to how real people (who aren’t on TV) style and use their spaces. For this reason and because we just love Instagram so much, my friend Erica Reitman and I started a new tag called #smallspacesquad. We’re asking you to tag your spaces that show off totally unique storage solutions, smart styling tips, and all the fun that comes with living in a tiny house. Here are a few of our favorites that we’ve featured over the past month, be sure to give each of these amazing ladies a follow!
Ok, I’m here to admit it: I’m an instagram fiend. I just really, really love capturing mundane scenes around me and sharing the beauty of day-to-day life, especially now that I live in California and my family is all the way across the country. I’m also already thinking about the holidays, specifically small but meaningful gifts for everyone I know. After discovering Social Print Studio, I’ve decided it would be extra cute to give sets of magnets to my family. Think about it: a set of cat photos for my mom (the original cat lady), a set of my hiking photos for my dad (the man who taught me how to fish), and even a set of just photos of me for my grandma (she calls me ‘her special person’). This is the perfect simple gift to show my family I’m thinking of them, even though I’m all the way across the country.
For this reason, I’m extra excited about this week’s giveaway with Social Print Studio!

October in California is a toootally different ballgame for me. It’s warm, like 80 degrees, and we go to the beach. My pumpkin-craving, flanneling-wearing soul is all WTF, but for now I am embracing these silly California vibes. Here are a few of my instagram snaps of late. Totally gives you that fall feelin’, right?
p.s. – guess who got her LLC!!

Mini things are simply the best, don’t you think? That’s about 75% of why I love Projecteo. Measuring under 2″ in all directions, this tiny wonder projects your Instagram photos anywhere. The other 25%? Why, that’s my love of sharing photos the old fashioned way, with a wheel! Projecteo allows you to create your mini slideshow and take it on the road without worrying about bulky equipment. Can you believe it’s the size of a matchbox?? Pretty awesome and adorable.
One winner will be chosen at random by Tuesday July 22 at 10:30 am PST. Open to US and Canadian residents only. Winner will receive one projector and one wheel valued at $34.98. Good luck!

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know this: I just had the best weekend ever. It all started with a hike with a close friend on Muir Beach. Between scrambling down steep slopes and perching on cliff edges to gawk at the ocean, we had lots of girl talk time, aka the stuff that feeds your soul. Between time spent with a good friend and time spent exploring, I feel totally set for the upcoming week. Noodle tagged along and I was so proud of how well he kept up. He’s really proving to be a great adventure companion for me.
Sunday was a different story: I spent the day lounging in a park and then doing domestic things around the apartment. Like I said, I find that sort of thing grounding.
I made these strawberry scones for the week’s breakfasts using this recipe from Joy the Baker. You should definitely try out the recipe.
I’ve also been making (slow) progress on getting the apartment settled. The rug isn’t back from getting cleaned yet, but here’s a sneak peek of my space. I converted a large walk-in closet to be my “bedroom” to save space. This means I actually have the space to dedicate to an office (more on that to come)! Can you tell that I am seriously in love with my apartment?
