YEAR IN REVIEW 2015 + FREE DOWNLOAD

Photo Jan 08, 9 37 18 AM

I’m a few days late, but I  jotted down my Year in Review for 2015 annnnd I managed to whip up a printable sheet for you guys if you want to do the same. My 2014 list was done in my notebook, but this year I thought a printed sheet would be sweet. This is a new little tradition, and I think they will be fun to look back on down the road. You can download it here!

This year has been pretty amazing with lots of travel and personal/business growth. I’ve had the opportunity to partner with so many cool companies and individuals, and I’m truly excited for what 2016 will bring… More on that later when I start The 52 Lists Project Book from Moorea Seal!

 

SAVE THE DATES & SHOP LOCAL!

This year I’m excited to participate in a couple of local markets, and I hope you’ll come out and shop my goods in person! First up is the Indie Craft Spectacular next weekend, and then Root City Market in December. Can’t wait to see everyone!

NEW POSTCARDS IN THE SHOP

I’ve had some postcard ideas swirling around in my head for months now, and I’m excited to say that I’ve finally gotten a couple of them into production! I think of these as snail mail to send to your bff who lives in another state, or even just 20 minutes down the road. An old school reminder that you are overdue for a hangout. Available as singles or a set!

NEW YORK | AUGUST 2015

Whoops! I’ve been a slacker on the trip recaps. We mostly worked and ate tasty dinners at night. Friday was a half day at work so I did manage to run around SoHo for a bit. We grabbed coffee at Maman… which was very photogenic, and therefore the majority of  my photos took place here.

It was also right next door to APiece Apart who was having a Sample Sale that day. We hit a handful of stores, and I was having some unusual shopping luck.

IMG_4980I ate at Eataly 3 times because t’s right by our hotel and perfect for nights when you’re just too tired, or dining alone. Sometimes I’ll grab food to-go and eat in my hotel room… ahem…bed.

I picked up this dress at The Rising States in New York, and I love it! Of course when visiting my dad recently
he thought I was wearing my pj’s, and not actually dressed to go out. He doesn’t get it.

CHROME YELLOW COFFEE AND DRY GOODS

IMG_3487

Kyle and Kelly from Chrome Yellow Trading Co have created the perfect combo of  chill coffee shop and well curated retail space.  The new spot, Chrome Yellow Coffee and Dry Goods, is located in Old Fourth Ward off of Edgewood Ave, and they are serving Stumptown Coffee 7 days a week!
The front coffee shop area has ample seating that includes a few bar spots, a table for a small group, drool worthy plant life, and a minimal aesthetic. The back half of the spaces houses the retail shop where you will find women’s and men’s clothing, along with an assortment of home goods and accessories.

The shop carries some of my favorite brands including Another Feather, Ace and Jig, and Hackwith Design. You will also find plenty of goods for the fashionable dudes in your life. I love their Chrome Yellow Logo Tees and the Always Atlanta pennants and lapel pins.

Prepare yourself for some serious plant envy, and make sure to try a nitro coffee. I’m so excited to have this new spot in the neighborhood, and for what’s to come! Although I’m a bit nervous for my shopping habit. Swing in for coffee…. and leave with a new outfit and some prospector co. candles.

NOTEWORTHY 9.3

NOTEWORTHY-POST-Sept

1. I’ve been binge watching a lot of shows while working in the studio, and started You’re the Worst  on Hulu Wednesday night. It’s a dark romantic comedy, and I find it HILARIOUS. The show Centers on two toxic, self-destructive people who fall in love and attempt a relationship. The characters are a self involved, and not always great at showing their emotions.  I’m also loving the supporting cast. If you like this, you’ll probably like Difficult People, and Catastrophe too. Maybe I like mean humor.

2. In a fantastic attempt at urban renewal, the government of Mexico recently collaborated with a group of local street artists called Germen Crew to paint a 20,000 square meter mural across the facades of 209 homes in a low-income district in Pachuca, Mexico. Would love to see this! – via We the Urban + patternpulp

3. Currently reading Born Standing Up: A Comic’s Life . I’ve always been a big fan of Steve Martin, and so far his memoir has not disappointed.

4. 7 famous women who found success later in life. Can’t lie. It’s hard not to panic about what I’m doing with my life as I get older. Love this post from Besotted that inspires me to keep working away, and that it’s never too late!

5. Becoming Aerosolar, is an exploration into humanity’s environmental impact on the planet, and imagining more sustainable models for the future. Artist Tomas Saraceno created these ethereal, airborne “vehicles” from recycled plastic bags, which are heated by the sun, and then begin to float upwards. WHAT.
