Tiny Changes: A Linen Closet Refresh

Here’s how this actually happened: I crashed into the massive laundry hamper in our bedroom for the millionth time and decided something had to be done. While our shared laundry bin was attractive enough, functional, and even made of sustainable materials, it was huge. Ideally we would’ve tucked it discreetly into a closet or a […]

How to Host on Airbnb Like a Pro with Rockridge Casita

Recently, I decided to treat myself to a few nights at the Rockridge Casita – a charming short-term rental just five minutes away from my own home. I was craving a little solitude, and I also needed to make major progress on my next book (which is suddenly due very soon – eek!). Diana Pasquali, […]

How to Organize Your Important Documents

As tax season approaches (gulp) I thought I would share some of my tips for organizing your most important papers and documents.

How to Plan Your Dream Day

One day, many years ago, Jordan surprised me by driving me to the Oakland International Airport. I didn’t realize until he parked what was happening, but it ended up being one of the most delightful days of my life. We flew less than an hour to Los Angeles and spent the next 24 hours doing […]

How to Pack in a Carry-On for Two Weeks

Whether I’m traveling for two days or two weeks, my philosophy is this: carry-on or bust! My refusal to check bags may stem from the fact that ten years ago my checked luggage was lost and never found, but I also just love to travel with a really light load. Packing everything in a single […]

Cue the confetti, exciting news day – I’m so thrilled to collaborate with Paper and Pear on an exclusive line of essential home organizing labels! If you pop over to Paper and Pear’s online shop, you may recognize some of their products – that’s because I’ve used their labels for many happy years now, both […]

Here’s How to Tackle Those Dreaded Tasks

The other day I found myself on the floor in the fetal position wailing “BEING AN ADULT IS HARD!” while my whole family laughed at me. This is a true story. I am very good at being productive and ticking things off my list (oh, how I love a list), but when asked to do […]

5 Things to do When You’re Feeling Overwhelmed

Anyone else feeling stressed, swamped, or just generally overwhelmed – or just me? Admittedly, I have some incredible things going on in my life (book out this fall! Another book in the works!) but that doesn’t stop my brain from creating a whole host of reasons to feel anxious. I’ve always been a deeply sensitive […]

A Living Room Refresh and The Power of Tiny Changes

I have had the same phenomenon come up again and again in my work with clients and friends – tell me if it sounds familiar: You’re waiting to implement big changes in your home until you have enough time, money and energy to fully tackle the big projects all at once. In the meantime, you […]
