Happy 2018! Thank you all for your overwhelming, sweetest support in favor of me starting a journal on my site  — So kind. I am often being asked where I stumble across this or that and I feel like this is the best place to download those thoughts + things.

In jumping into a fresh year, what better way to launch this journal than with my favorite finds of 2017?! xx, friends. 


Grid Duvet | I am a neutral, solid person. There is something so refreshing to me about white space + overall simplicity. But, this windowpane pattern has caught my eye (I know, so brave!) and it is beginning to find it's way into every part of my life, from clothing to home goods to gifts. I was given this duvet for Christmas and our white one was gladly tucked away by December 26th. The best part: It is reversible with an alternate grey option. 

Free People Royale Flats | Lets be honest, these are an investment if you are staring at the price. But, they are worth every single penny. I had been drooling over the Whiskey color for several months and then wedding season came (when I am on my feet for 10+ hours a day but still have to look classy!) I had to pull the trigger. The only thing that got me to take them off was the mushy snow, but I would have otherwise kept them on indefinitely. So comfortable + so versatile. 

Stendig Calendar | This calendar is the perfect statement piece in any room, especially a home office. I often find myself staring at it because it's just that beautiful. 

Cocokind Skincare | If you do not follow @shutthekaleup you must — Jeannette is a GEM and she turned me onto this new skincare line. I purchased it at the end of the year and after two days I went ahead and purged all of my other skincare items because nothing else can even compare. And people, it is organic so no mystery in the ingredient lineup! A must try. 

Madewell Courier Button Down | Every color is a classic staple and the minimalist part of me is thrilled.

Other things I am swooning over after 2017 (clickable):

DoTerra Breathe Roller | A forever fan. 

Michael David Petite Petit | One of our hosting go-to's.

Ikea Stockholm Rug | Snagged this used and I'm obsessed. 

Health Ade Cayenne-Ade | Every single day. 

Torras Black + Slim iPhone Case | So cheap, so lightweight.

Riedel Vinum Cab Wine Glasses | A steal, people! Costco for the win.

Hold Fast Gear Camera Leash | My wedding reception pal.

Made with Mary Bar Necklace | Classic + quality.
