on my desk

We spend a lot of time at our desks. So it's important to have all the beautiful essentials there with you, no?! This is what I've currently got on my desk.

Of course I've got my favourite lip balm from Basalt and this gorgeous new watch from Daniel Wellington. I've also got my bracelets (from Nowhere Anywhere and Minimalist Jewellery) because I always take them off when I sit down to work (they just get in the way when I'm typing!) And some lip colours & Mascara from La Petite Rob Noire to freshen up before I run out the door to pick up Hunter from school or run errands. I've also been using this repair tonic from Nowhere Anywhere during the day to freshen up my skin and keep it from getting dry while I work. The bonus is you look super dewy when you run out of the house after spraying it on. Love it!!

 

 

transitions

This is the time of year when you can wear a coat with sandals and it's acceptable. Don't try this in the heat of the summer though because people might think you're crazy. This is one of my favourite things about transitional dressing. You can wear shorts with coats and sandals with sweaters and it's all good. Yay! Also I'm kind of obsessed with these slides and I want to wear them with everything - I just wish these pants were a tad longer on me so that they looked a little more dramatic. This is the problem with being tall, pants are always shorter on me than I'd like. I sometimes just wish I could be 5" shorter. It would make clothes shopping so much easier! #tallgirlproblems

what I do

Sometimes I get so caught up in the whole fashion thing on my blog that I forget to share what I actually do for a living. First and foremost I'm a designer and letterer (although I've always been crazy for fashion too, and I did go to school for fashion!) What I love about my life now is that I somehow get to do both design and fashion for a living, and they are separate, but somehow one business at the same time...

on motivation

As a mom, sometimes it can be easy to lose motivation. You're tired, overworked, feeling blah, grumpy, PMS, your kid is always screaming, your husband wont get off the couch (only me!?), whatever. Even if you're not a mom it can be hard. So I've compiled a list of a few of my tips for staying motivated even when you feel like complete shit...
