This Week

+ I'm OBSESSED with this Swell wallpaper by Aimee Wilder. The whole Bungalow line is incredible, but this design and color combo is just really on my wavelength, man.

+ I take advise from Kelly Wearstler to heart, so if she says we need these 5 art books, then we do.

+ I ordered these Outsider Pants about a month ago and they rarely leave my bottom half. Pants that make you feel naked but leave you covered are my fav.

+ New App Alert: EWG // This is my jam. It lets you search or scan your cosmetics, suntan lotion, etc to see how toxic they are. Since cancer-causing agents lurk in many of our favorite brands and there is just too much information on the web to retain, this quick and easy guide is a crucial step in protecting yourself and your kids from cancer-causing hormones and ingredients. Arm yourself!

Episode 27 // Illuminated Driftwood Tablescape

This week's HGTV Handmade DIY project takes the breezy, beachy look of driftwood and brings it to an illuminated place with an easy tutorial that leaves you all aglow.

Put this together in 15 minutes and enjoy all summer long with your backyard BBQ's and chill get togethers. Environmentally-friendly, KID-friendly, and totally dreamy, this bad boy has been giving our balcony all of the romantic vibes I want.

Episode 26 // I Answer YOUR Questions

Last week's episode of HGTV Handmade had each of us ladies answer the viewer's questions ranging from favorite colors to fairy princess powers. I was into it. It was super fun to be on the HGTV set with some of my favorite girls. Check it out!

See the other ladies answer your questions in this playlist.

Episode 25 // Layered Fringe Photo Booth Backdrop

I am back home after 2 weeks away from my bed, balcony, and Brooklyn brownstone. My time spent since last I posted included 18,000 teenagers, David Bromstad, and swimming with a shark in the wild (NOT on purpose). It's been eventful, as has my HGTV Handmade playlist. Today, a new video will debut, but in case you missed the last 2, I also posted a DIY Photo Booth Backdrop tutorial that is not-to-be-missed. Check it out here for a series of seriously adorable dog photos.

I am heading west on Sunday morning for a week of HGTV Handmade shoots and VidCon. It will be a jam-packed work trip with a bit of favorite friends and fun peppered in here and there. I can not wait to be reunited with my Handmade homies and my Brooklyn friends who I've lost to California. Immediately upon my red-eye return flight home, we are heading to the beach for a week long family vacation. I've never needed one more and am longing for long lazy days on the beach with my pup in a bag beside me and the collection of books I've gathered for the occasion in my lap. I may check in here and share with you form time to time, but I am focused on being UNPLUGGED as much as possible.

While I'm away, Handmade videos will continue to roll out, I'll be sharing my adventures with you on Instagram, and there are so many lovely blogs to read in the meantime. But rather than reading blogs (which I lerve/luff/love), let's put down the laptops, pick up the paperbacks, and relax. AmIright?

Episode 24 // Mystery Box Challenge // Part 1

This week on HGTV Handmade we are doing something a little different. In today's video, you see all of us ladies receive a "mystery box" in the mail filled with supplies. We then had to use at least 5 of the supply items and whatever else we already had, to create something new. It was really fun and definitely a challenge, so check out today's video. You'll see my full DIY in tomorrow's video, and the REVEAL of all 4 of our creations on Friday. Be sure to let us know what you think of this new vibe in the comment section on YouTube.
