Back to Fall and Blogging

November 13, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

It's the coziest time of the year and what better way to celebrate than with a frothy delicious warm drink. For a while there it seemed like Summer was sticking around for the rest of the year, but now we are firmly in the Autumn season with lovely cool days, knitted wears and yummy hearty food. My drink of choice is a cup of matcha almond vanilla latte, with a bit of whip. :) What is your favorite? 

I've literally gone from Fall to Fall as my last blog entry was September of last year. Impending motherhood kept me away from blogging, but now that my little one has arrived and we've entered into an agreed upon routine :), I'm back and thrilled to share some of my latest.

Happy Autumnal Equinox - Fall Arrives

September 22, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The Autumnal Equinox is today and I wish you all a lovely first day of Fall. It doesn't feel like Autumn as the temps will be in the 80s, but I still plan to find myself some kind of pumpkin beverage to celebrate the occasion. I may have to get an iced drink, but pumpkin spice is definitely happening! What are you doing to celebrate the new season? Are you planning any desserts, home projects, or decorating endeavors? Here are some colorful inspirations to get your in the mood for Fall:

Back to School and Back to Campus - Write On

September 03, 2016  •  3 Comments

Nowadays it seems like everything is typed and some students even try to take notes on their phones. As I seriously date myself by admitting that back in my time we didn't use a computer until my junior year of high school, I'm very glad of that fact. We learned to type on old fashioned heavy duty manual typewriters and practiced proper cursive penmanship for years. I have to admit I've been losing that and I took out some of my old calligraphy books to practice! Heading back to school, there was just something very exciting about cracking open a brand spanking new notebook to take notes down and record your impressions. I believe there are many benefits to journaling and sketching, and it's wonderful to start young. Of course, there are also many advantages to computers and tablets: using less natural resources, faster note-taking, etc. Still, having a couple of nice recycled paper notepads or sketchbooks will help their imaginations fly a bit farther. 

Here's a little guide to help you choose:

Back to School and Back to Campus - Tote and Carry

August 23, 2016  •  1 Comment

I remember a time when I wanted my room to be bright pink. It was around middle school. Of course, after a year or so I got really tired of living in the inside of a Pepto bottle and I begged my Mom to paint my room white with blue curtains. Needless to say, pink was out, blue was in. Choosing items for your tweens, teens, offspring and college bound youths can get a bit maddening. Styles and trends come and go at the speed of light. I've come up with some categories to help you out in this quest. It was quite fun coming up with these. It took me back to my campus days when people's rooms would be an explosion of what they loved at the time. Cats, dogs, rainbows, unicorns, stuffed animals, or dolphins would be splashed all over the walls. Then there were the super popular movie, Dali and Scream posters and the intense color schemes. It was a way to show our personalities and passions. No parents to regulate and plenty of peers to admire our handywork.

I'lll start with tote and carry. Bags, backpacks and cases ideal for books, supplies and everyday toting.
