We’re finally in our new house and are about a month-and-a-half away from becoming parents! I wasn’t 100% sure if the cane daybed would take up too much space but decided that since I’ve loved it for years, I need to make it work. It’s such a versatile piece – I …

It’s no secret that I don’t have a lot of color in my home. And yes, I plan to stick to a (mostly) neutral palette in our next home because that’s just what I like. But with a baby coming, there’s naturally going to be some color in my home …

This post was originally published two years ago, but it’s been one of my most popular posts to-date, so I’ve brought it back with a fresh new look and updated products! Why? Because long flights are no joke. If I’m very lucky I’ll get 2-3 hours of sleep which still …

I started working from home when I launched my graphic design business back in 2007. As in eleven years ago. Even though The Everygirl got an office space in September 2016, I still work from home at least half the week, so it’s still very much a part of my life.

I’ve always wanted to be a mom, but it wasn’t until very recently that I felt close to being ready. And I’m not sure you’re ever really 100% ready anyway since a few days after we got back from our honeymoon, we talked about maybe holding off for a few months to …
