creatives to follow / emily blincoe

Every once in a while I stumble upon a creative that really inspires me. When that happens, I absolutely must share them with you!

Today I discovered a new instagram feed that I just couldn’t stop scrolling through.

Emily Blincoe has kept a few post series going through her feed, my favorite being #thisampersandthat

who to follow on instagram: emily blincoe ( @thuglifeforevs )I love the idea of putting boundaries on yourself that you have to be creative within. It can be a great exercise when you’re feeling uninspired! Like I’ve said before, a lot of bad work has to be made before you get to the good stuff. If you put a few restrictions on a project, you’re stretched and forced to try new things which usually leads to something really great that you would have never done before.

On a semi-related note, have you guys seen Bri’s latest giveaway on Designlovefest? She’s giving away a dream office and I ( like everyone else entering ) NEED TO WIN! Haha! But seriously, what a perfect way to start making our new house a home!? ( which we’re still looking for, btw. ) Since the contest is taking place on instagram by posting pictures of your workspace, I’ve decided to keep it interesting by hiding something related to DLF in each post entry. Check out the first post in my little series right here! 


popping up everywhere

I’m looking at pretty pictures of Spring and soaking up the Florida sun today! The floral trend is really everywhere isn’t it? I’m completely okay with it.

Happy Monday! I have jury duty today ( blahhh ) but I wanted to pop in and tell you about an organization I heard about recently, 100cameras.

100camerasAny time creativity is used for the benefit of others, I’m a fan. 100cameras uses photography to empower children to tell their stories and make changes in their lives.

clc christmas / taylor’s wish list

Well… I decorated for Christmas yesterday. At least I waited until the week of Thanksgiving, right? ;)

Even if you haven’t started decorating, I’m sure you’ve started making lists! I’m a list person already but even I step up my list making for the holidays. I enjoy making a list of everyone I need to find a present for and searching out the perfect gift. Although, making my own wish list is pretty fun too!

Taylor is sharing the items on her wish list today!

west elm market

As you’re probably aware, I’m a big fan of west elm. Taylor, our interior guru, is a home stylist at WE. Wanna take a wild guess how we met? If you guessed my ridiculous number of trips to my local west elm, you’d be correct. haha! I may be a tad obsessed.

They just revealed their newest AWESOME idea: west elm market. A whole new collection of insanely beautiful product. I’ve rounded up my faves from each section of the store. Take a look and then let me know what your favorites are!
