Joanne Pio is a photographer based out of LA and this girl knows all of the hotspots -not just in LA, but everywhere she goes! NYC, Portland, Seattle, you name it, Joanne knows only the prettiest, most instagrammable places to visit. She makes us a.) want to jet-set across the country and back again and b.) do all that travel with Joanne by our side. Luckily, following her Instagram account kinda lets us do that. So if you like good eats, clean design and traveling, get to screen shotting and taking notes!

It’s no wonder why Kristen Cesiro’s Instagram account is gorgeous. She’s only the Lead Web and Graphic Designer of Homepolish, the genius interior design firm that broke on the scene offering great design at even greater prices.One photo after another, you’re drawn right into Kristen’s world. Dusty pinks and soft white tones run through each of her snaps and we just die over her vision. They’re so pretty they make us wish we saw the world through her eyes. Well, we get to…through her lovely insta!

Dana Miller, blogger at House Tweaking and mama to three, makes normal life look completely dreamy. She’s deemed her house The Underdog, taking the challenge on of making this once dilapidated house into her dream home. We’d say she’s doing a pretty darn good job too! We love all of the decor updates she shares and seeing pictures of her kids in the space – playing, with real toys! Dana reminds us that Instagram isn’t always about aspirational photos, brunches every weekend and curated top-downs. Love, family and happiness oozes out of this account- follow it!

We’ve Got A Crush On…

While writing this post we realized January is, in some ways, a very obvious transition month and in other ways a not-so-noticeable, stuck-in-between type of month. Yes, it’s exciting, it’s new, goals are set and the playfulness of spring, with it’s inherent energy of “new life,” is just around the corner. Yet, it’s still pretty dull outdoors, skies are gray, the air bitter and we still have this urge to hunker down and cuddle in. Weird, right?! But instead of trying to define it, we’re embracing this push and pull phase! Hints of color and metallics excite us for what’s ahead, while moody vibes and textural layers are keeping us grounded in the moment! Here’s what we’ve got a crush on lately…

They say if you can’t see what you have, you never wear it. That’s why we’re loving this idea – a DIY that’ll help us tame the hot mess on top of the dresser that is our jewelry.

Ok, it’s time to go through your makeup brushes, get ‘em cleaned up and neatly put away, but it’s not time to spend a fortune at the organization store! This may technically be repurposing, but for DIY-beginners like us, it totally counts. Don’t throw away those fancy candles you burned over the holidays, instead use them to hold your makeup brushes, cotton swabs, q-tips and hair accessories! Your bathroom just got a whole lot cooler!
