At this point, most of my round up style posts are because a friend has asked me to source something for their own home. Today’s post is all about poufs thanks to my good friend Becca Risa Luna. You see, she’s sort of on the short size and needs something to rest her feet on that could easily slide under their coffee table. The coffee table can’t move closer to the sofa because then there wouldn’t be room to walk through! So a pretty pouf or handsome ottoman is the perfect solution.
Technology is an incredible tool that has become a necessity for us to function in our everyday lives, but I’ve been finding myself more and more anxious to step away from it lately. I literally try to respond to every DM and email that blog readers send my way — which can amount to a lot of time spent on my devices. I love hearing from you, but feeling a need to keep up 24/7 is sort of exhausting, too. Recently, I realized that it’s taking over every aspect of my life and I really need a tech detox.
So that’s exactly what I’ve been trying to do lately. I haven’t stepped away for weeks (or even days) at a time or anything, but I’m trying to be a little bit more aware. And as it turns out, there are some incredible benefits to taking a break from technology! Here’s what I’ve learned/noticed so far in my journey to take time to go tech-free:Continue reading “Weekend Wellness: The Life-Changing Magic of Going Tech-Free”
I can’t even believe I’m writing this post, but here we are. Given last week’s kitchen update, you’d think I am totally over renovations! While I couldn’t even imagine adding another project to my plate, these types of things take a fair amount of planning. Also, I just so happen to be an obsessive planner. With all of that being said, this is the list of home renovation goals we hope to accomplish in 2019!Read more

With our wedding a little less than 9 months away (!!!!), I need all of the inspiration I can get. I’ve poured over Pinterest, bought all of the magazines, but there’s something still so special about sitting down with coffee and a physical book (especially on a slow Saturday morning). Sometimes you just have to go offline, huh. Artisan Books was kind enough to send over a copy of the new Modern Wedding book by Kelsey McKinnon and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. And luckily for one reader, I teamed up with Artisan Books and Le Creuset for an exciting giveaway!Continue reading “Modern Wedding + Le Creuset Giveaway (CLOSED)”
Happy Monday, you guys! I’m kicking off a new series today, one that I’ve wanted to share for sooo long. Meet the new Small Space Squad Home Tours! I had originally started this as a hashtag on Instagram with Erica Reitman. As her business has evolved, I sort of “took over” the tag and ran with it. After seeing that it’s been used over 148,000 times (WOW), I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to convert the tag into a home tour series. The premise of this series is simple: I will interview fellow small space dwellers about their homes, advice, and more. My hope is that this series will inspire you and help with your own home — no matter the size. Trust me, this is gonna get GOOD.
First up, I’m sharing the gorgeously cozy home of a blogger I have huge respect for, Jess Ann Kirby!Continue reading “Small Space Squad Home Tour: Jess Ann Kirby”

Not gonna lie, you guys. Editing this kitchen renovation progress report video was pretty hard for me. If you’ve followed the renovation on Instagram, you probably know some of the behind-the-scenes updates. I wanted to go ahead and share even more about what’s been doing on and (quite frankly) some of the drama we’ve been dealing with here on the blog. It was really important for me to show you guys both the good and the bad of renovating — and that everything isn’t always perfect, even in Blogland.Continue reading “Our Kitchen Renovation: Expectations vs. Reality”
When I think about places in the house that feel the most like a refuge from our construction projects, our bedroom is always top of mind. It’s the one room in our tiny bungalow that has remained relatively untouched since the kitchen project started. To say it’s my sanctuary is an understatement! I also tend to spend a lot of time in bed, probably because I really love sleep. For all of these reasons, I recently realized that I have some nightstand essentials that I absolutely require and wanted to share them with you!Continue reading “My 5 Nightstand Essentials”
