Insta-life: Goodbye, 2014

January 7, 2015

The past year has been a complicated one, full of dramatic highs and lows, leaving many open ends and epic questions unanswered as I careen into 2015. But that’s alright. I’m ready for a new calendar. A new to-do list. The sun may set at 4PM these days (uugh), but I’m ready to infuse as much light into the next 365 as possible.

Anyway!

I mentioned I haven’t been blogging because life has been almost comically hectic, but I wanted to share some recent snaps from my daily life over the past few months… ’cause you know how much I love to share! Here’s a bit of everything, in perfect little squares.

Had to take a wintry #selfie on the first snowfall of the year! I was ecstatic to be in the Hudson Valley visiting my parents when it landed. I woke up to an epic white, fluffy landscape (and could not resist making a snow angel).

Lots of magazine perusing and downtime with green tea lately, thanks to unfavorable weather and a pressing need to sloooow down. Need some wild boho inspiration? DISfunkshion Magazine is one of my favorites.

The boho Christmas stockings I made for Bombay Mermaid last year finally sold out this time around. There is one left, and I’m keeping it.

Yes, I need a manicure, but my jewelry game is on this winter. I’ll never be one of those girls who has it all together at the same time. ;}

Hand-painted jewelry boxes: part of a special set of gifts I made for my shop this year. I ended up selling my annual holiday market table, though, because this season got a little too crazy. Sometimes you have to make peace with not being able to do everything, you know?

Hark! It’s my new favorite tea. You’ve got to try this brand. I picked some up during a recent trip to Rochester, where I visited a cool little co-op that my brother works for.

Rum and raspberry are a match made in heaven, as proven by this cocktail I enjoyed at a holiday office party. My new boss sure knows how to celebrate.

Pine cone painting and card making? Instant crafty stress relievers.

A bit of fast fashion armor that I couldn’t resist.

Holiday cocktails out with the girls—pisco sours make me so nostalgic for Peru.

Enjoying coffee on the porch one snowy morning (because a few snowflakes in your morning cup are good luck, obviously).

My favorite photo from the entire holiday season. My delicious little nephew Otto, held by his papa, my big brother Brendan. It is amazing how family makes life complete.

My first photo of the new year. I bought this sheer lace cardigan last year to inspire a sewing project, but ended up hanging it by the window and loving it so much, I never took it down. I love getting lost in the detail while I’m thinking at my desk.

New Year’s Eve makeup was a success… and you know how fickle liquid eyeliner can be, ladies. Thanks, Sephora.

Finally, a shot of snowy Brooklyn: my favorite place in the world.

You may be interested to know that blogging more often is on my list of 2015 resolutions. I have so many ideas, I don’t know where to begin! But that’s a good problem to have, isn’t it?

Follow me on Instagram, and leave me a comment with your profile so I can check out what you’ve been up to.
