Happy Friday, you guys! What a fun week it’s been here on the blog, right?? I mean, did you see the bedroom reveal? It’s been a really awesome, but busy week around here. Lately I’ve been trying so hard to increase the quality of the content I share with you and really make sure it’s my absolute best work. I really hope you feel the shift, too. I’ve been really inspired to create lately — whether that means styling gorgeous shots or shooting stuff I’ve always wanted to share, or even finding new ways to reach out and inspire.
This post is a loooong time coming, you guys! From scraping away 19 layers of wallpaper to restoring the original shiplap to breaking my leg… this bedroom has been a labor of love and sharing it with you guys is long overdue. I cannot wait to show you every little bit of this space… so, without further ado, here’s our bedroom makeover reveal (and the source list)!

These days our adventures are a bit limited because of my leg, but there’s one outdoor activity that I can still do: sailing! We especially love to go out on the boat with the dogs during the summer to catch the sunset over the Olympics. When Stella & Chewy’s reached out to share how we go above and beyond for our pups, I knew exactly the stories I wanted to share with you guys.
It’s been really hot in Seattle. Well, ‘hot’ in PNW terms… Ha. Most homes here don’t have air conditioning here, so I’ve been getting creative with ways to keep cool even when it’s really hot in the house. Frozen drinks have been at the top of the list, especially refreshing lemonade. Recently, I whipped up a really delicious combination of coconut, lemonade, and lavender and I totally had to share it with you guys. Meet your new favorite mid-summer drink!
Happy #popsicleweek, aka the perfect excuse to share a recipe for one of my favorite summery sweet treats. This popsicle is inspired by a really delicious cocktail we had during our trip to Palm Springs at the Ace Hotel pool. It was hibiscus with a hint of citrus and tequila, garnished with mint and I loved it. We joked that it was like adult Kool-aid. The vibrant magenta color was pretty fun, too. So this Minty Hibiscus Blackberry Popsicle is my answer to that drink, but with the addition of my favorite berry flavor, blackberries!
I’m not gonna lie, having a broken leg and wearing an unsightly air boot is really cramping my sartorial senses. This summer has found me living in t-shirt dresses, with the occasional pair of cut offs thrown into the mix. The look is pretty basic and I’m very over it, especially after discovering these gorgeous pieces from DÔEN. This is the vibe that I want to be my everyday style: vintage, chic, babelicious, and reminiscent of the western prairie.

If your bathroom is anything like mine, it’s pretty small and lacking any real form of storage. Having a small bathroom can inspire you to get creative though — and it’s all about figuring out which tools are best to help you get organized. I’ve tried countless different configurations and methods for squeezing out every last bit of storage in my small bathroom and wanted to share a ton of amazing pieces I’ve found in the process.
