The other day Sarah and I were both talking about how the contents of our purses are completely different when we go out at night vs. running around with kids during the day. I’ve talked about favorite items in a diaper bag before, but thought it might be fun to share the contents of our purses for when we’re headed out without kids…
Growing up my mom would always pull out a stack of Halloween books about this time of year. I love that she kept them tucked away all year and only let us enjoy them for about a month. It made them all the more special and spooky! Of course I was thrilled when she sent my daughter Hazel a Halloween book in the mail last week. Time to carry on the tradition!
What’s your favorite Halloween book?
I’m so ready for this weekend. I’ve been traveling for work a couple days each week this month for different brand projects and next week is the longest one but it’s a trip I’m really excited about! I’m heading to a food photography and styling workshop in northern New Hampshire. They’re hosting it in this incredible barn, ahhh I can’t wait! Before then though I’ve got to iron out some details for Henry and Edie’s costumes (he’s still debating between dracula and zombie) and we’ve got a pumpkin patch and chocolate chip pumpkin cookies on our to-do list this weekend. Here are some links to explore, have a great one!

Last week Henry started a skateboarding class through our local SF Rec and Park and all of a sudden he’s really into it! Finally dusting off that skateboard we got him last birthday. It’s so fun to watch how quickly he can pick things up. I thought I’d share some photos today of a little skateboarding outing we took up in Marin last week.

We’re headed on a road trip today up Highway 1! There is so much to see and explore, I thought I’d give you a little peek into some of our favorite spots and adventures with Ford, who loaned us a roomy new 2016 Ford Explorer to venture out in.
We’re doing something a little different this time. I handed the camera off to Henry, who was in charge of documenting our trip! Instead of my commentary, you get to hear his notes on where we went and what we did. Today is Part 1 of our trip. Here we go…
This content was created in partnership with Ford to help make creativity a part of every drive.
Closing out this years costumes with the classic “Kissing Sailor”. This costume is so simple to throw together and you really only have to know one pose to nail the look. Be sure and practice that dip kiss, it’s not as easy as it looks!

Last week I was in San Diego with the SPROUT by HP. I’ve done a couple posts about the fantastic machine before. This time, I was doing a live demonstration in their SPROUT Truck’s that are traveling around the country with the Oddball Comedy Tour. I did a live design workshop in the truck featuring some of my favorite projects that you can make with the SPROUT. Here are some pictures of how it went!

Camel such a great color for fall. Not only does it make your clothes look more expensive but it’s also a great color to look effortless (Joanna Goddard says so!). I love pairing shades of camel together like the image above. The perfect classic fall look!

Thanksgiving is just a month away but we’re already thinking about all the delicious food, decorating, and entertaining we’ll need to do to prepare. I used to hate having to sit at the kids table, but with plenty of kid-friendly activities and decor it can be more tempting than the adult table! Today we’re sharing some details and 2 simple DIY activities at the kids table in partnership with Pier 1 Harvest Collection.
