February might be my least favorite month. I always get so overwhelmed by the rate at which it flies by! Literally, it felt like yesterday when I shared my 10 things of note for January. Anywhooo, it’s that time of the month again and I’ve some really good stuff to share (like my new everyday carry tote from ABLE). It’s a shorter list than usual because I was sick for most of the month. But I’m ok with that because I’d rather share things I am super-stoked on than stuff that isn’t that great. Let’s dig in!Continue reading “5 Things of Note | February 2020”
It’s that time of the year again… the official Jojotastic Blog Reader Survey! It’s now my 5th year doing this and every year it’s more helpful than I can even imagine. It’s like a performance review, but soooo much more personal that that. I feel so much gratitude that you visit my corner of the internet and help support my goals, so making this space work for YOU is my ultimate goal.Continue reading “2020 Blog Reader Survey + Giveaway”
You know those homes that simply stop you in your tracks? That’s how I feel about the home of Kristina Rasmussen, aka Scandinavian Stylist. I pretty much adore everything about this small space: from the clean and crisp color palette to the natural touches sprinkled throughout. I mean, have you ever seen such sexy branches?? And don’t even get me started on the soaking tub… Kristina’s home is the ultimate in well-styled minimalism that’s also oh-so-cozy.Continue reading “Small Space Squad Home Tour: Kristina Rasmussen”
How are you?? What a freaking week… I was super-sick all week, but thankfully I am finally starting to feel it passing. It’s been a loooong time since a cold knocked me out for such a long time. My hopes for this weekend are to catch up on some projects in the tiny bungalow that I’ve been needing to finish. For example, I am SO CLOSE to sharing the reveal of our bedroom refresh. It includes some maaaajor small space storage hacks, so I’m really pumped to share more soon. And hopefully, I will feel well enough to do some planning for the outdoor decor and gardening projects I want to tackle this year. Reading that back, it all sound a bit too ambitious for how under the weather I’ve been… but I’m also itching to actually DO something this weekend!

Ever since my No Shopping Challenge, my buying habits have changed. I have never been especially ‘trendy,’ but I enjoy knowing that the trends are. But that doesn’t always mix with wanting to live a more sustainable lifestyle. The constantly updating fashion industry and seasons is hard to keep up with and has quite an impact on our earth. So instead of a trend round up like I used to share, I wanted to round up my ethical style picks today. To me, each item feels like it will ‘live’ longer than one fast fashion cycle — all while being ethically made!Continue reading “My Ethical Style Picks for Spring 2020”
I cannot believe it, but I am still under the weather from this nasty cold! Because I’ve spent so much time cooped up in our tiny bungalow, I felt like it was a good opportunity to share more details of how we live. Today is really specific: it’s all about how our small kitchen is organized. I took a quick video showing what’s inside each cabinet, how we use our storage, and a few of the storage tools I can’t live without!Continue reading “Tour Our Kitchen + 5 Small Kitchen Organization Tips (video)”
My obsession with candles is pretty well-known. I have one burning in our home at all times, basically. Not only do I love the fragrance, but I also love the romantic glow of candles. Tapers, pillars, and jar candles… YES, PLEASE. Lately, I’ve noticed a trend where there are some really fun candle accessories, like snuffers, wick trimmers, and lighters. In case you’re candle-obsessed like me, these candle accessories are just too cool not to share!Continue reading “15+ Modern Candle Accessories”
