Launch Day + Birth Day.


Guys, guys, guys. IT'S HERE.

I'm so flipping pumped and I have a lot a lot to say, but I'll keep it short here. 

You know when you have a revelation and you rearrange your house? Or when you need a change so you paint the walls?

That's what's happening here. Things are churning and when I take a step back, I can see the journey I'm on, right in this moment. 

Which is why I've been rearranging the furniture and making things new. At least on the web.

I've got a heart full of things to share and I hope you share right back at me, but for now, we celebrate.



To celebrate fresh inspiration and new digs AND because it’s my birthday (and who doesn’t love giving things away on their birthday?), I thought it would be fun to do a little giveaway.

Seriously, giveaways are my jam. Someone pay me to give stuff away. Please. 

Here’s some of the goodness you could get your hands on!


“The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield.

This book will read your mail, I promise you that. If don’t want your tail kicked into action, then you probably shouldn’t go near. But I’d like to think you’re a mover and shaker who could use a little pep talk. One of my fave quotes:

“Our job in this life is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it.” 


A notebook by Bright Books.

I met the founder of this company at the Yellow Conference last week and had to buy an extra notebook especially for this. I believe in the power of journaling, and the mission behind these books is amazing. Proceeds help provide solar lights to African children who would otherwise be using kerosene. I can’t do their story justice — go read more about their mission and heart!


“It’s a Monday” Mug from Olan Rogers.

Who doesn’t love a good mug? I have an addiction, I will admit. You can’t completely appreciate the reference on this mug without watching Olan’s video here. It’ll make your day. And go check out the rest of his products! I already have so many prints and tees from his shop.


Hiptipico Friendship bracelets.

One for you and one for a friend!! This is my new favorite company. I met the sweet founder at Yellow and fell in love with the brand. I adore the vibrant colors and patterns crafted by the Guatemalans. Several items are now on my Christmas list. ;)


Pura Vida bracelet.

Because you just can’t have too many. For real. And I love this company’s cause — providing full-time jobs for artisans worldwide. Their jewelry comes in so many color options that you’ll find yourself buying five because you can’t pick just one. 


A Mexican Blanket.

What? Heck yes. Because everyone needs a Mexican blanket. Or seven. The color will be a surprise though. :)




The first entry is mandatory, everything after that is extra! The contest will run until Wednesday, September 6, at midnight, and I will announce the winner here next Friday!
