Fall is right around the corner and nothing says cozy like warm hues and patchwork quilts! We drew inspiration from both for these sweet favor boxes we created with our favorite Fiskars tools.

We’re renovating a farmhouse about an hour outside New York City and I’m so excited to be able to host friends there. I think I’m actually more excited about the guest rooms than any of the other spaces. The bedrooms won’t need any more renovations (the kitchen and bathrooms are still being worked on) so I’ve slowly started putting the rooms together. We’ve partnered with Purple to share our tips for putting together a guest bedroom. Let us know what you’d add to the list. 1. Add a luggage rack to make it feel like you’re a professional host. 2. Make the bed with a comfy mattress and pillow ..read more

7 Favorite Iceland Experiences

I recently planned a girls trip to Iceland. We technically called it a “Divorce Trip” because a couple of my friends were getting divorced and we wanted to plan something fun they could look forward to. (On a sidenote: I’m a big believer in this–It doesn’t have to be an overcomplicated international trip, you can plan a hiking trip or an easy weekend staycation–but when I’m going through a tricky time giving myself something to look forward to is so important.) We did a recap on Ashlynn’s podcast right here. Jen who works with me at Oh Happy Day loves research and helped me plan a great itine ..read more
