Happy Monday my friends, I hope you had a lovely (and sunny) weekend! I wanted to stop by my blog and chat about something I’ve been working on this past year (since turning 30)…choosing quality over quantity.  For someone like me, who hates spending money, it’s a bit harder to do. BUT, in the past […]

It’s really been awhile since I’ve shared a home decor post, so today I thought I would share some of my Summer styling tips and inspiration that I recently added to my dining room.

As I sit here with the windows finally open and the sun trying to peek itself out through the clouds I thought I would quickly do a little April book review for you! At the beginning of this year I wanted to make sure to read at least one book a month..and well, I’m definitely […]

Okay, I think we need to have a quick chat about fonts, typefaces, calligraphy, and hand-lettering today. Now, I don’t think it’s completely imperative for you to know this, but I do think it’s important to understand the differences and of course get a better idea of font pairings and how to use them in […]
