This superstar never fails to amaze me!! Alyssa has grown up tremendously since the first time we did a shoot with her and I’m so excited to say we finally did her senior shoot and I am swooning!!! Yay!🍾❣️
A few folks have asked me about the tiny house stay. I’ll post more on the blog soon! One of my favorite things to do is search for unique spots on @airbnb wherever we go! See more (like the exterior) in my saved Washington story!
“I hate losing more than I like winning.” // I’ve lost in life more than I’ve won. My thirst for winning isn’t due to my competitive nature nor the pleasurable emotions win’s have provided me. I celebrate wins, but I’ve learned wins are devious and fickle- they last only as long as your next loss. For me, It’s been the despondent displeasure losing has provided me that has led me to hate the slightest taste, smell, and sound of losing. I’ve been beat and I’ll get beat, but that’s why I’ll never lose, ‘cause I hate losing more than I like winning. That’s a fact. // WIN. WIN WIN WIN WIN. @jayrock
The dessert bar where really the big feature was the whiskey. You don’t see it because it’s in that white frothy, beauty milk punch concoction thanks to the genius recipe from @ashrod. Thank you @woodinvillewhiskeyco for being such a key contributor and cheerleader for this event. And thank you Ashley, for sharing your gifts for the world to enjoy. 📷: @angelacarlyle
I mean... CMON. If I had this guy model every product I made, I’d be retired by now. 🖤😍 Thanks to @gussygoodboy for being my furriest fan! ..and his mom, too.
Give him a follow for more of the cutest little face in your feed (shh, don’t tell my pups I said that). 🤫
Dreaming of wearing straw hats, warm breeze, beach weather... 🏝 .
This summer was all work, and I totally missed the fun of summer! Whenever I was outdoors, I was pretty much drenched in sweat working on shoots and events. 😆 .
Since our parents are overseas, he and I never had to make family visits during Thanksgiving, and we always reserve this time of the year for ourselves for mini getaways. To compensate for me missing out on summer this year, we are heading to Kauai next month! 😉 can’t wait!
How about you? Where are you heading to this Thanksgiving? 💁🏻♀️

Spent a day at the studio working on a branding shoot - We incorporated our @newgateworld clock from our Prop Closet program in this desk scene and we love the character it added to the shot! #maynemarketing
Monochromatic done right is layering tonal hues and adding lots of texture. Inspiration in using color in monochromatic schemes comes from so many places, mostly fashion + travel.

Oh @shelbyfarmspark, how beautiful and hilly you were. Currently drinking all the Baja Blast and about to sit down for a few hours of freelance writing before bed. Currently living a life I never thought I’d be living, on my own terms, writing for companies I am obsessed with. It’s different, but exciting. Not only that, but I get to create for you guys whenever I want. I know I have been like absent AF lately, but I am working on that work/blog balance that will help me create for you too. Want to get some extra content from me? I started a @patreon yesterday that I am super excited about. Patreon members will get perks like articles I love, audio happy letters, and even physical happy mail from me! Use the link in my bio to sign up if you want in on all the happiness!
The perfect space knows how to shine any time of the day. This is often thanks to the tiny details that are thought through from the very beginning of a space's conception. It's more than implementing functionality and beauty, it's about creating an atmosphere that is worthy of remembering.

Random person: "What are you doing?"
Me: "Collecting acorns."
Me: "Why not."
Person shaking head and walking away: "Legalisation."
Me, who has never smoked a joint in her life: "Do acorns taste good?"

We celebrated Bleeker's final set of 💉's with a trip to Burlington to visit the fam. As usual, the pup was beyond excited to see everyone 🐶👋🏻🏃♀️We're hoping he's calmed down a bit by the time we leave for Tulum 🌴☀️ but I kinda doubt it..
