Home Away From Home

February 24th, 2014 § 1 comment § permalink

I’m a lucky lady this week, being spoiled like crazy in my Oregon hometown. Mornings are spent getting up early to drink coffee and go hiking with my parents, afternoons are spent lunching with family and friends, and evenings are spent relaxing at home and meeting the new beautiful baby next door.  Today my mom and I bought tickets to three shows at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, so I’m looking forward to lots of theater the rest of the week {starting with The Tempest tomorrow}.

New York Fashion Week {Photo Diary 1}

{An incredible presentation by Rebecca Vallance in the Hudson Hotel}

I just wanted to pop by and say HAAAAAYYY because, let’s be real, it’s been a while!  Here’s a little glimpse into my latest adventure – my 5th season of New York Fashion Week!  I can’t believe it’s been just two years since I showed up in NYC with a suitcase and a dream to see what NYFW was really like.  Now I have the privilege to receive invitations with my name on them twice each year, so I can go watch people change the future of style one outfit at a time. Dreams truly do come true, and I feel lucky and grateful every day! » Read the rest of this entry «

Bath Linens {Small Spaces}

January 24th, 2014 § 1 comment § permalink

I recently read a post on A Cup of Jo where Erin Boyle shared her tips for living in a small space {a 240-square-foot studio, to be exact}.  One tip she recommended was to use quick-drying towels in the bathroom, to save space and cut down drying time:

“We’re linen towel converts. Our tiny bathroom doesn’t get much ventilation, but linen towels dry so quickly that there’s no musty smell to contend with.”

In our tiny bathroom, I imagine converting to linen towels could be an absolute godsend – they’d be pretty, useful, and stay fresh/dry for far longer than our current towel collection {which is mismatched and takes at least two full cycles in the dryer to dry out}.  I’m considering these {above} or these for example.

Has anyone out there tried linen towels and loved them? Are they hard to get used to?  Please share any tips you may have, so I can convince Josh this is the right move for us ;)

PPS – I received an iPhone 5S for Christmas this year {thank you mom and dad!!} so my Instagram is seeing more action then ever. Stop by and say hello!
