Lately I’ve been working to organize and decorate our laundry room (pictures to come soon!). It’s a pretty small space so I removed a lot of unnecessary clutter to make room to sort & fold our laundry. One thing that I noticed ALWAYS taking up room was the ironing cord. On too many occasions the cord would actually end up in the washer or dryer because the long cord was dangling everywhere. Enter: Ironing Cord Holder. When…

Ironically, as someone who hates to cook, I love to throw dinner parties. Fortunately where I lack in cooking skills, Joe makes up for it. We’re a pretty good team in the hosting arena and admittedly many of these dinner party tips are his. For those of you who know Joe & I, I’ll let you guess which of these come from each of us! (answers at the bottom) 1. Make sure there’s enough empty…

As someone who wakes up at the last possible minute, yet still wanting to be ready to go at the right time, I’m always trying to find ways to shave time off my morning routine. I pack my lunch the night before & I figured out how to streamline my morning beauty routine, so it only seems fitting to organize my morning outfit selection. My city, Seattle, has two seasons: raining & not raining. Although all…

As cliche as it is, I really believe the New Year is the best time for a financial gut check. The problem that I historically ran in to is not the making of resolutions (hello, fun part), but sticking with them. Come February I’ve forgotten about those oh so important ‘resolutions’. So it goes without saying that by the end of the year, I likley haven’t accomplished what I set out to in January. It’s no surprise then…

I’ve tried everything to fall asleep at night: warm milk & honey, reading, listen to light music, glass of wine, dim the lights in the evening and likely dozens of other tricks. ‘Winding down’ isn’t really my thing. Nor is relaxing. These qualities definitely serve me well in productivity, but not so much in quality sleep. That’s why I’ve realized I need more than one trick to put me to sleep each night. (I also realized…

My favorite time of the year for store magazines mailings is Christmas time. I love love LOVE skimming through the pages checking out all the Christmas tree decorations, claiming “I could totally make this on my own”. That’s typically as far as I get because I know what looks easy in theory will soon become another ‘ Pinterest Fail.’ But I’m here to say that these painted glass ornaments are actually as easy as they look AND they…

I love a huge fully decorated Christmas tree, but living in the city we’ve never had the space for one of the big ones! On top of that I never seem to have the right amount of ornaments to fill my tree. Halfway through decorating the tree I realize I’m running out of ornaments so the back half of the tree is completely bare. In my head my tree always resembles that of the ones I…
