Post image for Harvesting Creativity & Overcoming Setbacks

Creativity can be anything from an art piece, to a written work, to a new business idea. What ties the concept together, in all cases, is that it is an outward translation of something within ourselves. We have thoughts and images running through our heads as well as feelings and emotions reverberating through our bodies. Creativity happens when we connect and utilize our talents to communicate what’s inside, breathing it into existence. Of course, that can be easier said than done. Read more »

This is a great post! I usually take a walk or go through Instagram/Tumblr for inspiration :)

I'm lucky enough to work in a creative field- tv writing- but it also comes with a lot of drawbacks. First, everyone, from the talent to managers and viewers are constantly giving you both constructive and destructive criticism. Second, I have to put a creative twist on mundane topics several times a day. It's very easy to lose motivation or hard to find inspiration. These ideas will help me keep going. Don't let the haters get you down!

Post image for Boho Wedding Inspiration

It’s been a little while since we’ve featured a wedding here on the blog.  But the other day, I got an email from MacK Mars, who works part time as a stylist for Free People.  The photos from her wedding day stopped me dead in my tracks – read on to hear her describe it in her own words, and to get a serious dose of wedding inspiration!

I adore the dresses in the windows - that is always such a soft and beautiful shot. This entire wedding is stunning - and the look of love between the newly weds is envy-inducing - they've truly found their one! So sweet - and so happy for their love. Warm Regards, Alexandra

Post image for Customize Your Carry-On With A DIY Luggage Tag

How many times have you found yourself standing in baggage claim, a parade of nearly identical black bags marching before you, completely bewildered as to which one belongs to you? Read more »

This is such a great idea! I especially love that it attaches with a chain to make sure it doesn't come off. My Uncle just paints a big "Not Yours!" on his suitcase, but this is so much nicer and prettier. (and less rude! haha!)
Alexandra -Aug 28, 2014, 1:49PM
Pinned this! I'm taking a trip to Portugal with my mom & sister - personalized baggage tags would be such a sweet gift. Warm Regards, Alexandra

I went into Body Shop and smelt Argan Oil - I love it! I usually use Coconut Oil but I don't know what's better or what gives a faster rate of growing! xo
Reni -Aug 29, 2014, 4:05PM
I've been growing my hair for nine years now and am constantly looking for new ways to treat and nourish it. My go to is olive oil right now, but with how much buzz is going on for argan oil, I might have to try it. Thanks for recipe! the little lion girl

The shift is subtle, until we’re suddenly acutely aware: Crumpled leaves litter the ground, school buses begin their early morning rumble, and apples, squash, and dark leafy greens start their farmer’s market takeover. Read more »

Post image for How to Pack The Perfect Carry On Bag

I’ve been traveling since before my memory even serves. Road trips and flights were a regular thing in my family, and for a while, a bag sat at the foot of my bed, always half-packed or half-unpacked, depending on how you looked at it. Read more »

Eva -Aug 30, 2014, 3:38AM
Great tip! I always bring all of this stuff as well. Seconding what people said in the comments about lip moisturizer. I usually pack one that's in a tin so I can also use it for my hands if I need to. A little spray bottle with water (and maybe conditioner/coconut oil) is helpful to spray your face if you're feeling extra dry.
holly -Aug 28, 2014, 7:02PM
This list is essential! I love the tip about lip balm in the comments too, nothing dries out lips quicker than changing climates.
