ILLUSTRATED LIFE

My boss recently told me about this French illustrator: Jean-Philippe Delhomme.

I was instantly drawn to the unique color palette and the gouache-y illustration style.

FINALLY



So happy to see the weekend. I am eagerly awaiting my husband's return from his work trip. 
I feel like he has been gone F O R E V E R! Get back here already! This weekend is also my 
Dad's birthday so I will be off to spend some time with family.

FAVORITE THURSDAY // 12


It's been a while since we have had a Favorite Thursday around here.
This one is all about oxfords, which I am having a moment with right now.
I cannot stop obsessing with all three pairs...with a cropped pair of pants 
and an over sized sweater. I mean…I would like that to be my uniform.

HOME BASE



No. This is not my house...that would be nice if it was. We bought our house four years ago 
and have been slowly doing some projects to make it our own. Our house was built in 1920 
and has been updated over the years.  2013 looks like it will be a big year for our home with 
some exciting projects coming down the line. 



I have always a great mix of textures...especially when wood is thrown into the mix. 
While, we do not have the budget to give our house reconstructive surgery...we can give 
it a little face lift. Our front porch was looking a little sad and a little broken...needless to say 
it has been on our list of things to do.



My amazingly talented husband is pretty handy and he started our front porch 
transformation last week. It instantly changed the curb appeal of our home. We chose a 
modern style wood slat design and I am eager to share some before and after photos.

HOLIDAY SHOPPING

Today is a very exciting day. The company I work for does a shopping event around the 
holidays where they give us a gift card and let us loose at Neiman Marcus. And of course 
because it is Neiman's I have the urge to splurge. Last year I bought this and I am obsessed 
with it and I use it everyday. Now, I am not planning on spending that much this year...
but I am thinking a nice pair of shoes is the next thing to add to the wardrobe.

PORTFOLIO PREP


1  //  2   //  3  //  4

Over Thanksgiving break I had some extra time off work and I was able to tackle one of my 
biggest projects...my digital portfolio. I only briefly had one in college and haven't 
updated it since! It just always seems like such a daunting project to begin. I haven't gotten 
around to photographing it yet but I did print out all of my stationery projects and made 
a list of the props I will need to shoot.


In my search to find the perfect props...here are some of the things I found.
