Vacation Branding


I will be back on Wednesday with all new posts, but in the meantime here is a little sneak peek at the branding I created for our vacation. Yes I branded our vacation! We celebrated my brother’s birthday, as well as our annual family vacation in St Barths. I created welcome bags, tags, and field guides, t-shirts and other goodies for each person. Below is a little sneak peek at the graphics I created. Stay tuned for more photos of the real deal.


Inspiration to-go {Rest and Relaxation}


Sometimes inspiration comes from getting away, unplugging, and relaxing. After 6 months of working long extra hours, sadness with the loss of a loved one, and just being tired, I have been blessed with the opportunity to spend some time away with my family. I am so grateful for this and am enjoying every moment. Below is a snapshot from my balcony, the small beach below…as I take in the beautiful views, my mind is recharging, and I am living in the moment. Have a fabulous weekend my friends!

Mom Monday {Nursery Fabulous}


When Sissy + Marley sent over this new nursery they designed, we were all swooning. Complete with their brand new exclusive wallpaper, a collaboration with Jill Malek.


I mean how adorable is this baby elephant walk wallpaper!?


The color palette is perfection, and I just adore all the details that these ladies always manage to infuse into their work.

The Best Healthy Meal Blogs


Something my girlfriends and I have been talking about a lot is where to find inspiration and recipes for family meals. I promised them I would share my favorite resources, so here they are! Sometimes I find myself following the recipes word for word, sometimes I adapt them to fit ingredients I already have. Either way you are in for a big session of mouthwatering inspirations right now…



Roost is a fabulous resource, and the recipes are organized by season, which I love!


My latest obsession Oh She Glows is packed full of ideas like make ahead veggie burgers, and yummy sugar free sweets.


Gastrawnomica is fabulous and also has very innovative raw vegan sugarless desserts.


Pure Mamas has some really fun ideas and the photos are divine.


The Diva Dish, healthy living with a touch of sass, lives up to it’s name. Brilliant!


Last but not least, the beloved Camille Styles has the most amazing recipes!! Hope these resources help inspire you to make healthy, whole food dinners. Would love to hear what you try! xoxo
