HI THERE

IMG_7425

hiiiii everyone! i just got back from mexico city and of course i am sick again (i just can’t seem to stay away from this head cold. it feels like my immune system never really fully recovers) always looking for remedies. joanie made me a delicious smoothie for wellness on my snapchat (designlovefest) if you’re interested.

mexico city was a real blast, can’t wait to recap it for you. it felt like i was always looking down at something pretty, hence these three photos. today i’m catching up on a toooon of work that always piles up when i go out of town and have bad internet. but happy to be home with my kitties and my own bed in los angeles.

i’m still deciding on what to do for the 4th of july. i am always so bad at planning holiday weekends for some reason. they overwhelm me. but that’s probably all in my head. anyway, back to work…lots of love! -bri

HI THERE

hi friends, bri here. i’ll be taking a few days off from blogging for the holiday. i’m going to recharge my brain a bit! (you can still find me updating here)

we are moving studios so i’ve been caught up with searching around LA for the perfect new spot. i’ve also had quite a few art directing gigs happening behind the scenes and i’m pretty wiped out! i plan on having a fun weekend celebrating a friend’s birthday, having a roof top labor day party with some girls, and relaxing around my house in the air conditioning.

hopefully pizza is involved…have an awesome long weekend! xx

HI THERE.

well hello + happy friday! how was your week? any fun weekend plans?

i just took on a few projects that actually make me VERY nervous, but also very excited. it’s funny that we can so easily tell our friends “you got this!” or “it’s all going to be great.” with such confidence, but when it comes to ourselves it’s much more difficult to be our own cheerleader. but as i’ve learned in the past, confidence comes from just taking those jobs you feel iffy about, learning from them, and figuring it out as you go. we will never be fully ready for every opportunity that comes our way, so we just have to jump in, try it, and do our best. (can you tell i’m trying to pep talk myself here??) so this weekend i am going to get together with friends and have a little brainstorming brunch. casual, easy, no pressure…just trying to think up ideas. and even if nothing comes of it, i still have good company.

also, my friend told me The Galapagos Affair was a super interesting documentary so i want to veg out on the couch and watch it on sunday. any others that you’ve seen recently and loved on netflix? (see a ton of my favorites here, here and here)

have a lovely weekend everyone! hope it’s filled with farmer’s markets, naps, mimosas, pancakes and people you really really like. -bri

10 MICHIGAN AIRBNB GETAWAYS

we’re back with another round up of our favorite airbnbs! i’m a michigan girl, born and raised and moved to california when i was 18 for college. as much as i love california, a piece of me will always belong to michigan. there is something about the midwest that you can’t find anywhere else. michigan is a magical place to visit, summer is a wonderful time to visit (all the lakes!) but fall is absolutely beautiful, the colors are incredible. i love the winter too, the blanket of soft snow, staying inside by the fire, venturing out for a cross-country sky, it’s a great vacation. i found some gems on airbnb (like the cozy Aframe cabin above that’s right on a river!) and highly encourage you to book a trip to the midwest! Xx – joanie
