This is amazing.
This was a great quote to see after finishing floor set, a week where lots of opinions are thrown around and fun and games turns into “no, it’s too chaotic, change it”. Some how the environment still ends up being inspiring and a place where I can and want to learn. Cheers to new beginnings and doing what you love, mostly.
But while this message is inspiring, I struggle with this quote a lot, as I’m sure most of you do. Its challenging to do what you want, make money doing it, stay focused and work towards making that thing epic, maintaining a personal life, all while making sure the right social media standards follow you so…just in case your list wasn’t long enough…everyone SEES you do all of this so it can then publicly mean something. See I can’t even re read that in one breath!
So for everyone out there who loves what they do, do it more, love it more. For those of you trying to figure out what you love, take some classes, try walking home a new way, go into different shops, hang out at new places, explore. Find what you love, make a change and take Nike’s advice: JUST DO IT.
So just in case you don’t believe me…I’ve included a picture of my current wardrobe for the last week (showers and shirt changes of course…mostly). We’ve been changing the floor set at West Elm for Spring/Summer and it look seriously awesome. This was my first floor set with West Elm so it was a really cool experience.
LOTS OF PAINTING…in case my pants didn’t clue that off.

Starbucks just does the damn thing!
Ok so some of you may know Starbucks has these special “Blends” - one of them is Sumatra. I tried it for the first time recently and HOLY COFFEE GODS - this grande cup of heaven was one of the greatest things I’ve ever tasted. So freaking good. So today I went to order another Sumatra and was asked if I wanted to try the Sumatra - Blue Batak? It’s more pricey but the barista gave it to me at the regular price so I’d have something to reference. HEAVEN. Plus it comes with a neat info card that I wanted to share because its really well designed and informative despite its small size. Enjoy!
