City Guide: Where to eat, drink, and shop in San FranciscoSan Francisco will forever be one of my favorite cities. I was living there at the time when I decided to take this blog full time (which OMG was over four years ago now). It also helped me understand the true possibility of decorating with pink, which pro tip here, you can never have enough. For those reasons alone it will always have a special place in my heart. Revisiting it on the book tour definitely rekindled my love for my former home. Ryan and I got to explore the city in a car this time (thanks Enterprise for making that happen), and see some of my favorite spots which lead me thinking… it’s about time that I share my favorite places with you! I’m sure a lot has changed since I lived there, so if you have any other reccomendations let me know so I can add them to my list for my next visit. But for now, here are my favorite places to eat, drink, shop, and see in San Francisco!  Continue reading…

Hello Color Book Tour Recap!

Hello Color Book TourMan I hope you guys love photos because today I’m finally sharing all the snaps from the Hello Color book tour! For five weeks this summer (during July – August) Ryan and I had the privilege of driving across the country together to meet and craft with some of you. I can’t tell you how much it meant to me to be able to hangout with some of you face to face and to celebrate this accomplishment. Sometimes working by yourself feels like you’re just pushing content into a void, but this trip was the nicest reminder of why it is I do what I do. It was a summer of adventure and color and one I’ll never forget, so thank you!  Continue reading…

DIY Color Dipped Luggage TagSummer travel is just the best part about summer, don’t you think?! Aside from ice cream and patio cocktails that is. I’ll be headed to Oregon tomorrow (first time back since I moved) to see the eclipse! And guys, I cannot tell you how excited I am for it. It’s going to be amazing and I hope you have it on your calendars as well! I’ll be staying at the SpringHill Suites and of course documenting the whole trip on Instagram, so be sure to follow along!

Before leaving I thought it would be fun to make a colorful luggage tag. If you have any other trips planned before fall sets in, and you want to make one for yourself, here’s how: Continue reading…

City Guide: Wildwood, NJ

Travel Guide: Wildwood, NJHappy Monday friends! I know typically for city guides I give you all the dirt you in on where to go and what to do, but this one has a bit of a twist to it since I didn’t actually stay in Wildwood. Why even share then, I’m sure you might be wondering. Well, I came across Tyler Haughey’s photo series of retro motels and decided to go and do one of my own!

It turns out as a beach town in off season, everything is completely empty. There was even one point where I was the only person on the beach. I was able to explore freely and take photos without having to wait for people to get out of the shot. Plus, guys, how could I not share these colors with you?! They’re a pastel spring dream. Okay, okay, enough talking! Here are the photos!
