{organization} Love To-Do Lists? This post’s for you!

So… if you’re anything like me you probably have a smartphone, a laptop AND a tablet. I’m an Apple-girl, so I live on my iPhone 6, my iPad mini and my Macbook Pro. I’m all about online tools and apps (and a huge fan of Asana and Wunderlist.)...

The skirt has made it to the conceptual phase…

What is the perfect color to go with pink brick?

Morning all! As I continue to obsess about what goes INSIDE our house, Mr. Bug obsesses about the things I consider to be a bit more boring… air filters, caulking, all that sort of thing. One of our new projects has met happily right between our separate... read more

The trouble with flat televisions

Alright folks. I’ve made the complete switch to batty house lady. I spend all of my time working, unpacking, organizing or surfing the interwebs, trolling for photos of inspirational decor. That has become my life over the last few weeks. Luckily, I’ve... read more
