Style Your Life Retreat & Styling Workshop recap

A Glimpse into Our Style Your Life Retreat & Styling Workshop in Italy for floral, food, and interior styling. #italy #workshop #retreat #foodstyling #floralstyling #floraldesign #tuscany #creativeretreat #interiorstyling

This year was my second in a row of traveling to Italy, but my first time teaching a styling workshop there! I’ve shared lots of info in the past about the Style Your Life workshop that I co-taught with food stylist Maren Ellingboe King and Sarah Abare of The Stemmery. After being back for just over 2 weeks, I have mentally processed everything from the trip and wanted to offer you a glimpse into it! At the very least, this post will probably inspire a bit of Italian wanderlust, too.

monthly moments | photoshoot sneak peek, Alt Summit, & more

Featured Video Play Icon

How on earth is it already the first full week of March? Woof. I feel like I’m a bit behind! Between styling loooots of photoshoots, attending and teaching at my first Alt Summit, and living life, it was awesome to look back on the month of February through video. For such a short month, I really did a lot — and even had some ridiculous adventures thrown in (just wait til you see Nancy Kerrigan The Chicken’s cameo). I love giving you a glimpse into my life and wanted this video to feel like an even closer look than you may find on Instagram Stories. Welcome to a new monthly series called Monthly Moments!

If you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel to catch all of my videos FIRST — did you even know that the videos are posted a full day before they go live here on the blog? Now you do ;)

recent styling work: Silver + Salt

My recent prop styling work for Silver + Salt, minimalist handmade jewelry from Seattle. #styling #propstyling #jewelry #flatlay

This year is already off to such an amazing start for me, with two BIG styling projects under my belt in just two months. I love it! Today I wanted to share my most recent styling work for Silver + Salt, a local jewelry maker (and good friend!). Her pieces are absolutely stunning, so when she asked me to help style a few flat lays for her new lookbook, I was totally in. It was also an opportunity for me to work with photographer Michelle Moore for the first time and I’ve been dying to get that opportunity!

my essential coffee table books to style the perfect #shelfie

The other day I was helping my best friend style her bookshelf and realized that one thing was missing: really gorgeous design books. Sometimes referred to as coffee table books, this is the element that can give your #shelfie that really curated-yet-casual vibe you see slaying it on Instagram. I like to use mine to add height, color, and texture. For my own shelf, these books help to break up the monotony and give my plants the perfect backdrop. With my bff in mind, here’s my list of essential coffee table books to help you style your own space!

how I maintain my photoshoot props (and find new ones!)

This post is sponsored by eBay. All opinions are my own and always will be! Thanks for supporting content that keeps Jojotastic going.

I have a confession to make: I’m a hoarder. There, I said it. The truth is that my studio is practically overrun with photoshoot props that I simply no longer use. Recently, I decided it was time for some serious decluttering and went through every. single. one. of my props. One of my ultimate styling tips is to sell the pieces on eBay when I’m through with them to help me recoup those expenses and put the money toward new props. eBay also makes it super easy to list the items and then package and ship each piece. And, again, here’s where eBay really comes into play: it’s my ultimate source for finding new photoshoot props!

Keep reading for tips on how to sell on eBay, details of an awesome giveaway, and tips for finding new styling props.
