Lately, I’ve gotten pretty into the concept of being an Adult Child™. It’s a feeling you get when you realize that while you are an adult, you are also someone’s child, and in certain situations, all that matters is the child part. In this political climate, navigating the Adult Child™ waters has become more precarious than ever. My current Adult Child™ dilemma: how to respond to political emails from a relative.Keep Reading

For the past few weeks, I’ve been on a search for a specific pair of shoes. They have arrived in my inbox every morning, just asking to be worn. I can’t pinpoint when the emails started, maybe January?

Round Top, Texas, is a small town located almost equidistant from Austin and Houston and home to one of the largest flea markets each Spring and Fall. As a town of 90 permanent residents, over 100,000 visitors flock to the town for the twice-annual fairs to shop at the 20+ miles of vendors that sell there. In short, it is a mecca for antique and flea market lovers. But take one look at the vendor list and it is overwhelming. Which shows are worth hitting up? Which have food or parking?

Since this is not a skill that comes naturally to me, I wanted to try packing cubes to try to reign it in, and of course had to share my full Designlovefest Packing Cubes review here with you all. Designlovefest put out a super cute set of luggage and travel accessories for Target so I thought I’d start there. The Designlovefest packing cubes come in three sizes that fit inside each other for easy storage and for $20 it was a low stakes attempt at organization.

My attic bedroom came with a real lighting challenge: there wasn’t any.
My electrician said it wouldn’t be simple to run a light over the stairs because we’d have to tear up the ceiling, and with the curved walls, it would be terrible to repair. So I lived with sad lighting for a year and then came up with a plan to swag a plug-in pendant or chandelier over the stairs. Keep reading to learn how the plan for the DIY basket pendant light was born.Keep Reading
I have been searching for a small kitchen countertop tray to hold this gorgeous decanter for a few months now. Something modern and pretty that I wouldn’t mind having sit out on the countertop all the time. Since I only have a small space available, it was really hard to find a tray that was large enough to hold the decanter/bottle of wine/etc. yet small enough not to get in the way day-to-day.
