3 QUICK FATHER’S DAY GIFTS

123

anyone else obsessed with amazon prime? free and fast shipping is right up my alley. here’s 3 ideas for your dad, in case you put the shopping off and need a good gift in time…

dad

1. bose noise canceling headphones (one of the best gifts anyone has ever given me. i use them on every plane ride!)

2. fitbit (my dad is really active, so this is perfect)

3. mini jambox (sometimes i get my dad an itunes gift card. but i think a little portable speaker he can connect over wireless is something he could enjoy for his workouts, road trips, or during yard work)

JUST HAPPY

tumblr_ndh54kTahO1qhbn7lo1_1280

hi guys. this photo struck me today. it just feels happy, doesn’t it? the past few months i feel like i’ve made huge strides towards happiness and it feels so great. i’ve been in therapy for about 10 months now for my anxiety and i feel like i’ve had some huge realizations about myself, my relationships, where my anxiety stems from etc. for once in my life i feel like i’m approaching life with less fear and more control. this is my 4th week back into working out and i’m still really enjoying it and starting to see results. i’ve been casually dating again. i have some bigger projects i’ve been working on behind the scenes that i can hopefully announce soon. life just feels really positive right now. but i really believe it’s because i’ve been putting in the work to feel that way…making healthier choices and taking care of myself.

it’s so easy to put off taking care of ourselves…i can get avoidant or too busy or lazy. but it’s really worth it. hopefully we can motivate each other in this space! lots of love and have an awesome day, bri

BAGEL BAR!

bagel bar | designlovefest

every once in awhile we do an all office lunch where we step away from our computers and take a break together. we created a bagel bar for this past lunch and it was a hit! easy set up and plenty of options to keep even the most picky eaters happy. we used our designlovefest for cheeky paper plates and napkins to make prep and clean up simple. you can shop the whole collection, here. we used the black dot 10″, good vibes napkins and the 7″ split triangle plates.

there are a ton of topping options for creating your spread but here is what we used:

• everything and plain bagels
• avocado
• capers
• tomatos
• red onion
• Persian cucumbers
• radish
• cream cheese
• lettuce
• smoked salmon
• fried eggs
• dill and chives for topping

wash all of the produce and slice it on a large cutting board that can be used for prep and display. cut and toast the bagels, add plates and napkins and you’re ready to serve!

WEEKEND AT HOME / 19

my doormats always start looking drab way before i actually remember to replace them, which is a total miss because doormats are such a fun way to come home happy! add a little flare to your front door this weekend. go with a fun phrase, pretty pattern, or a neutral textile like jute. i personally love the idea of having some quirky phrase at your feet to bring a smile onto your face as you’re coming or leaving. you could even try painting a custom pattern or word onto a simple jute doormat… just grab a can of spray paint, pin a stencil down and voila! what type of doormat are you digging? – erika
