My friend Joanna is organizing a new conference for women creatives here on the West coast and I’m so looking forward to checking it out!

Paul Rudd has always been one of my celebrity crushes–he’s just as hilarious as he is attractive. This video of him having a lip syncing battle with Jimmy Fallon had me in stitches.

This gorgeous decoupage bottle DIY would make the perfect gift for you or someone else.

Dating a designer: 10 things you need to know. A lot of these made me laugh.

I’ve been on the hunt for a simple black ankle boot and I recently ordered these cute ones from Betsey Johnson. They should be here on Monday and I can’t wait!

1. What Do You Carry? is a voyeuristic view into what creative types carry around with them.

2. My girl Heather talks about important traditions. Can we talk about how amazing her macrame fiber wall hangings are?!

3. A man puts household items in his beard and then photographs it. Genius.

4. This spicy thai chicken soup sounds so delicious and perfect for a wintery night dinner.

5. I have this Everlane shirt in my shopping cart and I know its only a matter of time until I click “checkout.” It pairs perfectly with my new high-waisted black skinnies!

PS; I was featured this week on Angel’s Ask A Freelancer series alongside the lovely Tara where we answer some questions and give tips on booking clients.

Super interesting study on which names rank the best in terms of best husbands + wives. I was very happy to discover I rank ‘most desirable.’ Ha!

These NFL logos redesigned as hipsters are too good.

Came across this gorgeous monitor stand DIY by Ugmonk.

Two words: watermelon mimosas. YES PLS.

I’m diggin’ these tips by Kendi on how to stay active; no gym required.

I’m back today with the first Link Bytes of the new year! I switched up the format for these posts and I’ve also decided to to take the pressure off of myself to post them weekly and just post them intermittently as I please. I wish you all a lovely weekend. xx

I was enraptured watching this video of a man understandably dubbed as “the lion whisperer.” 2:06 will melt your heart.

The further I go into my relationship, the more appealing + romantic elopement sounds. My friend Danielle captured one such couple’s special day at the San Francisco courthouse. If there’s any place to elope this would be it and if there’s any photographer’s lens I’d want to be in front of it’d be hers.

Haley is a girl after my own heart wearing all black + looking fabulous while doing so.

My girl Brianna made some lovely 2014 calendars available for download!

I made these for lunch this week and they were a hit in my house! Super quick + easy (not to mention, healthy).

OFFLINE LOVE / listening to podcasts in lieu of music on my drives to + from work (post forthcoming); losing 4.5lbs on my first week weigh-in for the biggest loser challenge; running (who would have ever thought?); cucumber-infused ice water; meal planning; my new tangerine + olive scented candle; sparkly self-manicures; putting eyeliner on everyday this week; writing in my new planner + feeling excited/accomplished; buying new plants + putting them all over the house; accomplishing having a sober week & creating my running playlist (because, beyoncé).
