Tell us about your latest work and what’s inspiring your most projects?!
Besides my daily blog, social, and weekend newsletter I'm currently working on a few product collaborations that will be launching later this year! I've been really enjoying diving back into design work again and can not wait for each of these collections to launch. But as far as inspiration goes, I'm constantly inspired by old Hollywood glam with a Slim Aaron vibe. Fancy, but approachable! ;)
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
Always be ready to pivot.
And truly, it's been THE best advice. My job is constantly evolving and changing, being flexible is the name of the game.
What’s your no-fail go-to when you need to get out of a creative rut?
Get out of the house! I work from home and am a major homebody, so my default is to just stay cozy! But I'm *far* more creative when I get out. I'll pop over to my favorite coffee shop for a little people watching and swing by the flower market on my way home. That typically does the trick!
What books/blogs/websites/instagram accounts are getting your creative juices flowing?
Honestly I love Pinterest. There is nothing better than a good old fashion pinning sesh! Follow along here: https://www.pinterest.com/
It’s a beautiful Saturday in your city and your friend is visiting from out of town. Where do you take her? Favorite local spots or hidden gems?
Oh, we are definitely doing the Winter Park Boat Tour! It's the most fun. Then we're heading to Park Avenue for a healthy lunch at New General, and of course an afternoon latte! Post lunch, we'll walk the Avenue for some light shopping. And for dinner, drinks, and vibes... we'll land at Hillstone! Truly my ideal Saturday.
Your next/dream travel destination. Location + hotel + activity.
I would love to go back to Paris or a trip to Carmel in California. I know they are complete opposites, but currently, I'd take either. ;) My husband and I went to pairs in 2015 but are dying to go back, and Carmel has been on our list forever.
