Insta-Discoveries No. 21

July 16, 2015


Today was a good day because I came across Caroline Z Hurley’s work. She is a New York based Designer & Artist that creates beautiful rugs, linens, pillows, and more. I’ve decided to feature just her today because I really connected with her products, as well as her Instagram. It’s a lovely curation of colors and shapes that pulled me in! Enjoy.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a longgg relaxing weekend. Mine? Pretty lame actually. I spent the entire time hacking away at a to-do list that I’ve been ignoring for a while. Ya know… 01. do taxes 01. hang picture frame 03. fix broken shelf… stuff like that. I put a few finishing touches on our living room — I want to share some little corners of our home with you soon so I was trying to make that priority! More soon** For now, enjoy this round of Insta-Discoveries!

This week, I decided to feature only 01 instagramer – because she is just THAT good! Her name is Jenn Elliot Blake and she is a freelance event designer, prop stylist and blogger located in Seattle, WA. Remember her lovely lady feature? Jenn recently wrapped up a trip to Morocco that was breath-taking. All of the colors, patterns, and stories. I may or may not have just spent like 30 minutes on Airbnb-Morocco, drooling over dream houses like this and this.

With a honeymoon around the corner, I’m going to bump this up to the top of my list. Bubba and I are getting married… 7 weeks from today but have decided to wait until he is done with his PhD to go on a big blow out trip. He will be done in less than a year so let the planning ( and saving ) begin!

Hope you guys are having a killer week! Turns out vacation is awesome and it’s hard coming back to real life? Who would have guessed!? There were two things I loved most about being in Dream-Land-Mexico and away from my normal routine. 01 – I wasn’t sitting down in a chair all day. I was on my feet, running around, moving…!! My body was almost instantaneously happier. If only I could design a logo while exploring? 02. My head was so much more clear. I’m pretty ocd so when it’s time to work ( which is basically all the time ) my brain is on hyper-active / list-making / goal-achieving / self-improving / etc etc mode… I’ve only been back for a few days and I’m already exhausted again. Come on life…?? Mexico, where you at?


…some favs that helped get me back into the groove this morning!

Taking a break from my super non-productive morning …looking at all these pretty ladies and what they have going on is providing a major surge of inspiration!

Spent the morning diving into other people’s accounts that truly inspire me! I thought I’d share a few of them :) I love realizing how different all of our lives are from day to day – down to what we put into our bodies to how we recharge in the evenings + It inspires me to question how I do things and if change would be good?

Happy Monday!
I thought I would kick it off with some new insta-favs!

Note: I worked all day today and it was great – but part of me feels like half the world is still on holiday break… relaxing & celebrating. Whatever your schedule is looking like, it’s almost the New Year and that means we get one more night of fun, right?? Bubba and I plan to eat LOTS of sushi and then keep it low key. It’s the first time in a long while that I don’t have some big party to go to or a sparkly outfit to put on. It’s gunna be great :)
