Disclaimer: I’m about to gush HARD about Bindle, an online eco-friendly gift store that not only offers up a genius idea, but beautiful styling all around. Tailored around a specific theme or occasion, each Bindle offers a perfect present for men, women, mothers, babies, and corporate friends alike. It’s official, finding the perfect gift idea not only just became seamless but also an enjoyable process as well.

Above are some of my favorite Bindles, Breakfast in Bed, For the Hostess, Get well soon and Blokes but I could honestly be persuaded to buy any and all of these fabulously paired combinations. Shop the entire Bindle collection right here.

Designer and blogger Emma Robertson launched her new website a couple of weeks ago and with one glimpse into her updated portfolio, it sure packs an inspiring punch of design, art direction and photography projects.

I’ve followed Emma’s blog Emmadime for quite some time and was introduced to Eva Kolenko’s keen photographic style through it.  Immediately I was drawn to Eva’s stark, contrasting and fun shots. (Her food photography is my favorite!) So when i saw that Emma was working on Eva’s lookbook, I knew it would be a killer collaboration. 07.14.14_post_02

Above are some of the beautiful spreads that Emma designed to showcase Eva’s work. You can check out the entire project here, more of Emma’s graphic design work here and Eva’s beautiful photography work here.

Sidenote: The Camp Studio Tour Emma just released on her blog a couple of weeks ago is by far one of my favorite projects of her’s. So quirky, fun and unique. Enjoy!

I guess it’s inevitable that I’m one of those twenty something girls who is in love with every product, piece of apparel and book that Anthropologie sells. Does that make me one big cliche? Quite possibly, but when a company hones in and perfects every aspect of their brand, I think it deserves to be celebrated. Above are some of my favorite picks as of lately but trust me, there is a whole lot more to love right here. (And in stores too!)

Atlas + Isolation | Our Wedding

Atlas + Isolation | Our Wedding

Nate and I got married on Friday, April 25th, 2014 on a bright and sunny day which was sandwiched in between a 7 day forecast of cold and rain. It was the most beautiful, flawless and loving day that I’ve ever experienced. I know a lot of brides probably say that, but for a bride who actually hated being a bride, (I’ll admit it) our wedding was the complete opposite of what the planning process had been…instead it was calm, collected and perfect in every way. I know as a creative, I’m supposed to tell you that I loved planning every last detail down until it all was perfectly curated, but the truth is I was always more interested in being Nate’s wife rather than in having the perfect wedding.

But when the morning of our wedding arrived, I woke up with a sort of calm in me that truthfully I didn’t even know I had. Everything felt right, everything felt perfect and as we went through the day, everything fell into place just as we had always imagined it would. Our pastor gave the most heartwarming and authentic ceremony, friends and family flew in from around the country and together, we celebrated into the next day. It was complete and utter perfection and I’m so excited to be able to share the photos below. Our photographer captured so many special moments between Nate and I, with our family and friends, and of our wonderful venues.

I came across the vintage textile and furniture shop Barrington Blue while reading the blog For Me, For You and became infatuated with their bright pattern, shapes and textures. Started by Carie Olshan and nurtured through a love of travel, design, upholstery and textile craft, Barrington Blue has breathed new life into a slew of handmade textiles and unique one-of-a-kind pieces.

poketo is a wildly fun and vibrant shop located in los angeles, california and is one of my go to stores when buying gifts for other people. founded by husband-and-wife duo ted vadakan and angie myung, poketo was born out of a belief in “art for your everyday.” aiming to be an online destination for design-driven products that takes art off the gallery walls and into the home, the items in their shop are not only fun, but they offer up a unique flair to everyday housewares, accessories, apparel and just about anything you’ll need to bring art into your everyday.

i found designer amanda guarini’s senior show via pinterest and was really impressed with the brand she dreamed up and successfully executed this last fall. the glass garden is a hypothetical company that reflects unique shapes, patterns and lines found in succulents and air plants. the brand highlights negative space mimicking the open, airy quality of terrariums.

below is how amanda describe’s the shop in her own words…

“The Glass Garden is a small shoppe located in Buckhead, Atlanta that hand makes unique glass terrariums. The atmosphere of our company is modern and simple, using shapes and lines derived for our in store succulents and air plants. Frank Lloyd Wright has been a huge influence on us as well with his pioneering of glass soldering and geometric design.” 

check out more of her gorgeous work, styling and images for the glass garden here, in addition to the rest of her design portfolio here.
