You guys, what better way to kick off the official start to summer with a HUGE sale?? Thankfully, lots of brands have some incredible Memorial Day deals going on… and I’ve rounded up my favorites to help you get your shop on. #treatyourself
Happy Friday, you guys! I feel like I go through phases… there’s definitely been a black and white phase, but also a simplification phase. Both of those are very ‘now’ in my life. Even last weekend I spent tons of time simplifying and purging in my wardrobe. But every once in a while I fall in love with a pattern and can’t get it out of my head. There’ve been a few patterns, actually! I think it all started with the discovery of this Baggu for Urban Outfitters collection… YOU GUYS, IT’S SO GOOD. I need it all.
I know you would neeever forget, but Sunday is Mother’s Day so I wanted to help you out with a few awesome ideas to make for mom. By no means is this a last-minute round up of ideas… nope, no way.
Crafts and DIY projects are always a fun gift. I love the idea of putting a personal touch on any of our past DIY projects for mom. Be sure to check out these favorites from the Jojotastic archives… like our DIY ice dye throw. This is our most popular project yet; why wouldn’t mom love it??
Or perk up mom’s bathroom with our shibori bathmat DIY. It’s super easy, but packs some legit drama.
You guys, it’s my birthday today! I’m off climbing some mountains to celebrate, but wanted to take the opportunity to share a bit of what’s been inspiring me lately to hopefully get you inspired for the weekend, too. Here goes…
When I first moved to Pioneer Square here in Seattle, I felt like my shopping habit would fiiinally get a bit of a break. The neighborhood felt more restaurant- and bar-focused instead of shopping-focused… that is until I discovered Velouria. This gorgeous boutique once resided in Ballard, but migrated south to Pioneer Square. They specialize in small production, independently-made pieces ranging from apparel, jewelry, and small house goods.
How do you feel about Valentine’s Day? I hate to be all cliché about it, but I find myself only really digging this day when I have a beau. Yep, just being real here. Even though both Sean and I prefer to keep things low-key, that doesn’t mean I’m not into all the cute hearts, sweet cards, and pretty lacy things. We’re probably staying in this year with a bottle of good champagne and some pizza (#netflixandchill).
I am definitely more of a laid-back Valentine’s Day kind of girl. Once I gave my boyfriend a case of beer. See, aren’t I sweet?

This holiday season finds me a bit stressed when it comes to gift giving. I’m in save-save-save mode because I’m in the market to buy a house (!!!) and every extra penny is going to that goal. That doesn’t mean I’m forgoing gifts altogether this year; rather I’m on the hunt for affordable yet stylish gifts that make a memorable statement. Admittedly, it’s been a few years since I last shopped at Old Navy. Mostly these days I’m into their affordable athletic wear, but with a list that’s nearly as long as my arm, Old Navy is a natural fit. They reached out to me to put together gift ideas for friends that are thoughtful, fun, and budget-friendly — so here goes!
