5 Ways to Spruce up your home bar


We recently revamped our home bar, and I am on the hunt for a few great pieces to add those finishing touches. Here are a few of my favorites.


This fabulous bar cart from Society Social is perfect. Vintage seltzer bottles like this one are a great accessory. And let’s not forget Mrs. Lilien’s cocktail swatchbook.


These highball glasses are great, and I love the kitchiness of these mermaid bottle openers. Cheers!

Mom Monday {Quick food tip 102}


Here is my second installment of quick tips on how to get your kids to eat the good stuff. Tip 102, cook together. Piper gets so excited to cook with me now. No matter what I am making, she wants to help. And I promise you it tastes so much better to them if they help make it. She has been obsessing over ice cream lately, so we made no sugar, vitamix ice cream together. Ingredients: frozen coconut milk and frozen bananas. That’s it!! Brilliant~


Branding for The Silver Pen


I am so very proud to have worked on the rebranding for Hollye Jacobs and her site The Silver Pen. Her site provides an “everyday source of inspiration and information. It is an honest guide to navigating the realities of cancer with a focus on health, balance, humor and above all, Silver Linings.” We live in a time where we are all touched by cancer whether it’s a friend, family member or our own struggles, her site provides a safe haven and an invaluable resource.


You know when you have those people you just instantly click with, and you get each other? Well Hollye is one of those people. We had a blast coming up with her logo and branding. We designed business cards, book marks, letterpress stationery and even quotes for the website. Then I had the pleasure of designing her new website!


And I am very excited to announce that in less than a week the book The Silver Lining will be released. Co-Authored by Hollye Jacobs and  Elizabeth Messina, this is sure to be an amazing and beautiful book. You can pre-order yours here. I think it would make a very special and thoughtful gift.
