Link Love + Coming Up

small shop office

People. I finally hung a few things on the walls of my place (I’ve only lived here 9 months!). We have plaster walls so I was just hesitant to hang anything! Not ready to share photos yet because it’s not finished, so we can all gaze at Erika’s dreamy office inspiration board above instead. (Photo by Jennifer Daigle)


Thinking I’m going to need to try this lip scrub recommended by Lara the beauty blogger queen.

Hitha has just about every travel story in the book — here’s her tips on What To Do When Your Delayed Flight Messes Up Your Entire Trip with corresponding story.

Reeealllly wanting one of these cast skulls on my wall.

Feeling sick? Who isn’t lately! Design*Sponge did a cool roundup of Cures for the Common Cold from people in the creative community. See if any of these work for you!

I actually considered buying sequin pants this season… still might have to.

Did you see Grace’s new Etsy shop?


So I’m speaking at ALT Summit again this year (last year was Up & Coming Blogs, this year I’m on the Social Media panel), so if you have any questions about social media for bloggers  leave them in the comments and hopefully we can address them! See my other ALT Summit posts from last year: information recap, the Mega Link List and snapshots.

Right after ALT I’m headed to Vegas baby! I’ve never been to Vegas (I know!) so my virginity will be taken! I’m sooooooo excited! I’m going to the Vegas Furniture Market thanks to the Las Vegas Design Center where me and Ashlina (The Decorista) are gonna get down with some furniture.

Pretty sure I need some new luggage for this year, mine is looking a little ragged. Do you have any suggestions?

But before I leave for ALT and Vegas (which is only 10 days away OMG)…

Katie and I will be launching the Valentine’s Day issue of to & from — that’s right, a gift guide completely dedicated to the ones you love! There are just a few days left if you’d like to advertise in this issue — email us at for info!

AND next week I’m launching my first-ever line of products. Well at first it’s just one product, and each month a new one will be added, but they will all be limited edition so you’ll have to get them while they’re hot. So excited to share this it’s killing me.

Also in the next few weeks I’ll be launching another biz that you’ll have to stay tuned for! Eeeee! So much going on — so exciting! (And I’m kind of getting hives from all I have to do, but that’s ok!)

What do you have going on/coming up?
