Thrifting is one of my truly favorite things to do. Either with a good friend or solo, nothing can beat a successful trip to my local secondhand store. I love it for a few different reasons, one being the thrill of the hunt. You just never know what you’ll find! Another reason is that it not only helps me save money, but also is a key part of living a more sustainable lifestyle. There are a few things that I typically always buy secondhand, so I wanted to share those with you today. My hope is that if you feel overwhelmed by thrifting, this list will give you a bit more guidance on what to look for.Continue reading “6 Things I Always Buy Secondhand”
I haven’t talked much about it here on the blog (YET!), but we’re in the midst of giving our van a quick makeover so that it’s cute and comfy for our climbing adventures this year. One idea that I am so excited to come to life is the new paneling we installed because I want to wallpaper it! I don’t want to deal with permanent wallpaper adhesives, so instead, I’ve been researching removable wallpaper… and there are SO MANY OPTIONS. It’s sort of overwhelming, tbh. I don’t even know how many hours I’ve spent looking at the different patterns, so I wanted to make a quick and easy guide for you to help in case you’re working on a project, too!Continue reading “The Ultimate Guide to Removable Wallpaper”
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”
