The countdown is ON. I’m heading to London with Virgin Atlantic to celebrate their new direct flights from Seattle to London! We leave tomorrow, so I’ll be sharing all of the amazing places we go, what we eat, and all of the adventures we have, but until then… I’ve put a lot of thought into what to pack for the 10-hour flight. I’ve seen tons of ‘essentials’ lists, so I’m all good there (aka pack a phone charger and medications). But I also tend to bring along a few items that help make traveling a little less stressful.

my birthday wishlist.

My 32nd birthday is coming up and I've got quite a wishlist of gifts: handmade earrings, a leather wallet, wireless headphones, new house numbers, and even a potting station! More on Jojotastic.com

Happy March! March means one thing… my birthday is this month. I turn 32 (sigh) in 16 days. Last night, Boyfriend asked me what I want for my birthday and the question sort of stumped me. I mean, aside from a finished bedroom and sunny days, I wasn’t really sure… So I whipped up this list of a few things I’ve been eyeing lately:

  1. a classic leather wallet — my current one is too small for all the receipts I always end up carrying around.
  2. tassel earrings — just too gorgeous for words.
  3. Bose headphones — I’ve got a lot of travel coming up, so a set of noise cancelling headphones would be lovely.
  4. circular white bag — there’s something about this bag that I love. White seems risky, but I love the shape.
  5. road trip babe tee — I love graphic tees and road trips!
  6. good at naps blanket — I mean… cuz I am.
  7. potting station — I plan to do a lot of gardening this summer. Plus, how cute would this look on my house??
  8. house numbers — I’ve been dying to replace my hideous house numbers that no one can ever see for months now.

Seattle like a Local // Miroja

I feel like it’s been a hot minute since I shared some of my favorite spots here in Seattle. Miroja the sweetest plant and home decor shop, or as I refer to it, the best serotonin boost you can ask for. I’m lucky in that this gorgeous shop is on the ground level of my new studio space, so I can pop downstairs whenever I’m feeling blue or lacking inspiration. Usually this means I end up bringing home a few leafy friends, too.

Winter style means one thing to me: layers upon layers. Very often, these essential layers tend to be well-made quality basics that I can break up and wear with other key wardrobe pieces. The goal is to stay as warm as possible, especially in the cold, wet winter months in Seattle. If you walk the streets of my neighborhood, you’ll find that there are some style essentials that could qualify as a PNW uniform: a chambray button up, waterproof boots, and a sturdy, water resistant coat with a hood. The look is a little bit preppy, very heritage Americana, and very laid back. G. H Bass & Co. sent over a few of their new winter styles and I loved them so much that I added them to my holiday gift shopping list, too!
