One of my goals for 2016 is decluttering, but I still have miles to go as I’m the creative messy type. Lately, I’ve been wanting to organize my magazines and books and these have caught my eye. Which idea is your favorite? Any special organization tricks you’d like to share with us? –stephanie

something happened to me this year. it’s honestly beautiful and exciting and i’m so happy about it. i have never felt more creative, maybe ever. i’m not sure if it’s the new year’s good vibes, the not drinking and eating healthier, my shift on the blog, or the fact that i finally feel pretty content with my life. usually my creativity comes in spurts. very all over the place and sometimes not there at all when i’m reaching for it. i feel like i used to be most creative when i was sad & moody. but for the past few weeks it has felt like nonstop inspiration, ideas, and happiness. gosh i hope that’s infectious because i want you all to feel what i’m experiencing!! it feels like anything is possible.
my hope is that i can keep it up. i’ve been trying to just stay in that creative mindset by nonstop research, planning creative shoots just for me, thinking about traveling, making positive personal choices, keeping a good attitude, lowering my stress and realizing that worrying is most of the time just POINTLESS. how do you guys usually stay on a creative path and not stray from it? i feel like the trick is really focusing and feeding it.
i’m just going purely experimental. i started a hashtag last night on instagram that i hope you join in on, where i showcase people’s dreamy photos before bed time. check out #sweetdreamsdlf here!
it’s been so invigorating hearing all of your comments and emails and snaps about how much you like the new direction of the blog. it’s a HUGE part of what is keeping me in this headspace, so thank you. lots of love, bri
today was an adventure. we took the vintage mercedes out for a ride with some giant balloons. i was nervous a lot of the time because the car hasn’t passed the smog test yet and it’s technically not supposed to be driven. i hateeee getting in trouble, but i decided to just risk it today. we just drove around near my house. i gotta take that car to get fixed asap, because i love it!
do you guys play around on the phhhoto app? it’s where i just post random stuff and don’t think about it much. a little creative outlet. jesse and i took some fun ones today.
i’ve always been pretty open when it comes to sharing more personal stuff. i guess i’m just not the most private person. i also find it VERY interesting when people are able to talk about the real stuff happening in our day to day lives. i’ve been wanting to explore more personal, weird, awkward, intimate, questionable, thought-provoking topics on this blog for a while now. i have to admit, before i wrote this post (which thank you SO SO much for your thoughtful comments. i read each one of them and i feel overjoyed with the response.) anyway, before i wrote that post i was nervous about HOW i would introduce it and make it look cohesive with my blog. but now, since my site is taking a bit of a turn in the road and going the more scrappy route, i feel like it’s the perfect time.
remember when katie and i ran the weekly advice column? that one was a little more focused on career stuff (which we will still touch on) but this one is going to be more casual/personal focused. let’s see how it goes! i also have a team of great girls with different opinions and i think it will be cool to introduce different points of view. okay, let’s REAL TALK.
our first topic: WEDDING GIFT & THANK YOU ETIQUETTE. do you give a gift even if you don’t go to the wedding? do you think it’s rude to not buy off the registry? thank you notes, are they outdated or always required? do you really have a year to give someone a wedding gift?….read our thoughts!
i have to write my thoughts down on this topic because i stayed up until 3am last night thinking about it after i posted this image on instagram and got people talking about it. and then i couldn’t STOP thinking about it. so here it goes….
why did i first start blogging? let me take you waaaaaay back…
