Giddy up, you guys, I’m officially kicking off the renovation of the one bedroom in #mytinybungalow! We did a mini refresh about a month ago when Sean first moved in, but I’m really itching to get on with the renovation already. I’ve been living with this icky room for almost and year and it’s time to turn this sad, dark room into a sanctuary. And, now that Sean is living with me, he’s involved, too! In traditional makeover style, let’s start with some scary before photos, shall we?
The last few weeks of winter are the worst! It’s when you really start to notice all the tiny things in your home that make it so cold. Small details, like an old window or drafty door begin to take their toll. So when Joanna mentioned that her tiny bungalow had a drafty door, I knew just what project share next: a draft stopper! We used a fabric dying method from our most popular post, how to ice dye, for a boho-chic look that matches Joanna’s living room.

This week was sort of a wash, not gonna lie. I got really sick and barely left the house… basically I’ve spent the entire week melted into my couch! I’m starting to feel better (yay), but I was not expecting to be knocked out so hard by a cold for a full week. It also snowed in Seattle this week, which was awesome. It’s the first time I’ve seen #mytinybungalow in the snow and it was so cute. The snow settled over a lot of my house’s flaws which was kinda nice. Even my chain link fence didn’t bother me as much. I briefly ignored my cold to walk the dogs in the snow through Discovery Park and it was lovely.

If you watch my Instagram Stories, you know one thing: I’m a closet beauty and skincare addict. Make up doesn’t really excite me, but skincare like serums, milks, masks, and moisturizers are my absolute favorite. I could talk about them all day! Some of you guys have DM-ed me, urging me to share my favorite products and skincare routines here on the blog, so here goes. To kick off my beauty report series, today I’m sharing my morning and evening skincare routine!
For this post, I received glassware from Reidel. All opinions are my own and always will be! Thanks for supporting content that keeps Jojotastic going.
We always keep Valentine’s Day pretty low-key around here. I think both of us have this sentiment that it’s a made up holiday, but it’s still nice to set aside time just for the two of us. This year we’re going to hole up in a cute cabin in the Cascades and snuggle around the fireplace. I’m planning to cook an amazing dinner for the two of us, so I decided to test out a Valentine’s Day spin on one of my favorite cocktails, the French 75. Blackberries are one of my favorite fruits, so I decided to add a fruit twist to this classic cocktail… and they add a gorgeous vibrant hue!
If I have one weakness, it’s shopping for the perfect rug. I find it incredibly challenging to select just one vintage or antique rug because they are all so gorgeous — I want to hoard them all. Such is the case when I discovered SF Rugs, purveyor of some seriously pretty floor coverings!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and this year, instead of obsessing over cupid’s arrow, I’m making a special treat for my girlfriends to enjoy. Both Joanna and I have been focusing on taking better care of ourselves, essentially taking time to indulge in all-important self-care. So why not treat your best friend to the gift of self-care for Valentine’s Day? We whipped up a batch of bath salts filled with dried flowers and packaged them in easy dip dyed canvas bags for the perfect heart-felt gift.
