it’s true: i’m working from home now.
over the top exclamation
quit the day job and clocked out on working for the man. i now do my freelance writing from home and i’m like, so. into. it.
it’s been bee.yond lovely just opening the windows, letting the air breeze through the house and light filter in. one of my favorite aspects of this new home office is my music.
though i’d done songza at work and enjoyed their many npr and paste playlists, i love being at home with my whole iTunes library, turning on some mellow tunes
and not having to use headphones.
some songs both old and new that i’ve been playing lately:
downeast basics asked me to guest style for may!

chillax was a bonding item for sir samuel and i.
along with “olden days”, irregardless vs. regardless (same definition) and when people say “lie berry” instead of library, chillax is a most unwelcome word around these parts.
it makes us cringe.
sir husband and i have no problem with relaxing. except our problem is, we never get to!
we haven’t been on a vacay, or even really gotten away since our honeymoon 4 years ago.
sam graduates this month, so we decided it was about time!
we are kind of beyond pumped.
y’all, i’m accepting restaurant / attraction suggestions for Salt Lake City, Vegas and Scottsdale.
one day at church, i took a silent little iPhone photo of my outfit.
pretty soon it turned into a series on my instagram.
my collection from the last 10 weeks or so.
happy church grams!
if you follow me on instagram, you have probably noticed all my shots of beautiful produce.
we started Full Circle Farms fullcircle.com organic produce delivery earlier this year and i can’t say enough good things about it.
you can customize your order size and items, it’s delivered straight to your front door, and the food quality is spectacular!
i compared costs, and the amount of food i get from Full Circle would be twice as much at the grocery store, should I buy organic.
we have tried community supported agriculture CSA before, and it wasn’t quite right for us. we didn’t get prior warning about what we’d get each week, we couldn’t really customize and it was hard to work in the different produce options we received.
but Full Circle has been the perfect answer! they even pack topical recipes for that week in the box.
sam and I eat way way more vegetables and fruit now, because its right there in front of us.
Full Circle sent me a friends referral. so if you’re interested in trying, use my name and the code below, and you will get 25% off your first box.
you don’t have to sign a contract or commit long term. you can cancel week by week.
try it! we love it!

i’m mrs. black fashion. have been since high school. must have always been an innate new yorker.
every year like clock work, i get to church on Easter Sunday and realize that i never got an easter dress, and i’m in all black.
so this year i decided to try super hard to incorporate light colors and more spring fashion into the wardrobe.
i really do need a complete overhaul but don’t want to spend a lot of dinero, so i’ve slowly been acquiring key pieces and mostly accessories since february.
here is what i came up with:
first, i wanted some open breezy, but nice flats for church (not a heels girl, unfortunately).
this proved quite a bit harder than i imagined.
asos saved the day:
haven’t bought big earrings in a long time. but i’ve been seeing long earrings everywhere lately (the brazilian girl on project runway is one example) and top shop called my name :
i’m not too proud for old navy. they can have cute stuff! a light skirt and bright boyfriend sweater were perfect:
caught gilt at the right time and got some coral house of harlow kye flats for a STEAL:
and lastly bright dresses from eShakti:
not to spoil the surprise, but I’ve been saving this (with sleeves), for Easter:
