spring shopping must-haves from the shopbop sale! find all my boho fashion inspiration on jojotastic.com

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.

blue heart graffiti found in London

Happy Friday, you guys! I’ve been majorly slacking this week. Ever since I got back from London, I’ve been having trouble catching up on stuff. If you’ve been watching my Instagram Stories, you know that major progress has been made on the bedroom. We’re in the home stretch and I’ve been thinking about LOTS of details like storage, pillows, and even which lightbulbs will work best. I promise to be way more on my game next week and already have lots of great stuff to share with you!

Cuyana Seattle Opening Party. shop gorgeous bags, wallets, sweaters, and leather goods.

Seriously, is there a Friday about which I’ve been this excited? Not for a long time… what a week! Drywall is IN here at the house, which means the renovation is moving along. Sometimes I go into the bedroom just to pet them. My birthday is tomorrow, but we might spend the day painting the room simply because I want to be in it already!

Also, Seattle friends, mark your calendars because one of my absolute favorite brands, Cuyana, is in town and hosting an essential tour! You can find out more here + RSVP. I wish I could be there, but I’ll be in London. My girl Kasey from Turntable Kitchen will be curating the music, so be sure to stop by!

vintage wallpaper found during bedroom renovation of a 1908 fixer upper bungalow.

Happy Friday, you guys! This post is publishing a little late in the day, sorry about that. I feel like apologizing for being late is the story of my life these days thanks to the exhausting work of balancing running the blog and renovating the bedroom at the same time. If you’ve caught my Instagram stories lately, you know why… we are deep in the throes of renovating the bedroom and it is hard work. I have found this process to not only be physically taxing, but also emotionally draining. It’s hard to see the biggest expense of your life ripped down to bare studs. I’ve also found that digging deeper (literally) into my home has made my love for it grow to proportions I never thought possible. Like as we were stripping away over 17 (SEVENTEEN) layers of wallpaper yesterday, my heart was bursting with love for this tiny home of mine and all of it’s rich history. Be sure to stay tuned to my stories this weekend, lots more renovation glimpses coming!
