1920’s , Dorothy Sebastian and Joan Crawford having a picnic on the beach in Santa Monica, California I love old photos. I have a really bad urge to buy them when we visit The Antique Barn in San Juan, but for some reason I keep thinking I won’t know what to do with them when I […]

the office

This little room is totally amazing. Best of all, it flaunts the ever-popular (and inexpensive!) IKEA Expedit bookcase and Knipsa baskets. Paired with complementing accessories, this is one of those rooms to tack in your Pinterest board for later. I think I’d do pretty well with this as my workspace… (does anyone else seem to notice there’s a […]

via What’s that? Oh, just some deliciously decadent Buttermilk French Toast that Sara of Sprouted Kitchen whipped up. No biggie. It’s also totally not a big deal that she’s releasing a book or that her husband takes all the amazing photos (annnnnd gets to partake in Sara’s tasty, healthy cooking)! Trust me. I had a carrot cake that this lady made, and it was […]

nakate night

Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending an evening devoted to the Nakate Project, hosted by CCOC event organizer, Heather Cereghino, and Nakate Project founder, Shanley Knox. Launched in 2010, Nakate was fueled by Shanley’s desire to see radical changes for a small, impoverished and crooked community in Uganda. After meeting one very special little girl, the Nakate mission was born! Shanley and […]
