four seasons hotel houston, texas.

sitting room in the four seasons

One of the perks of traveling all the time is getting to stay in awesome hotels. I worship staying in hotels. This might have something to do with the fact that growing up we didn’t stay in hotels. Ever. We were a granola, hippie, tie dye loving, camping family. Which I’ve incorporated into my family life, to an extent, but I love a good hotel. They always have hot showers! And beds! So, in February I went to Houston for…

kutv channel 2 fashion segment.

I did another fashion segment for a local t.v. station this afternoon, showing off the hotness that is DownEast Basics right now. I wasn’t nervous, even though my sweat glands disagreed. I’ve decided yellow isn’t my color, poofy tops make me look pregnant, and my arms could use some toning. Other than that, it was perfect. After watching the rehash through my fingers, I’ve decided it’s tolerable and can share the video link with you.Petit Elefant talks fashion. Thankfully I…

kitchen remodel part 3.

I will be grateful till the end of my days about my Frigidaire kitchen appliances. Really, forever grateful. And even though it’s like complaining about getting free clothes because your closet is too full, I’m totally and completely sick of my kitchen remodel. Over it you guys, really reeeeeeally over it. For starters, my family room still looks like this the contents of my cabinets on display for the whole world to see. I have to go get sugar and…

reason #5425 I love my new refrigerator.

I love my new appliances. Like, love them so much I want to sleep next to them on a little blanket in the kitchen. But here’s another reason I love my Frigidaire refrigerator. It has removable shelf liners. Nasty right?You know when you’re trying to clean the condiment shelf of the refrigerator and you can’t get all the nooks and crannies because the shelf is so tiny, and it’s attached to the fridge and you let out all the cold…

justin hackworth + 30 strangers.

Surely you’ve heard of Justin Hackworth and his 30 Strangers project? He’s a local {Utah} photographer and I love him. It’s really simple: he’s an extremely pleasant person {we could hang for hours}, he’s got a fantastic aesthetic, and he’s obscenely talented. What more could you ask for in a photographer? He’s done this really cool project for the last few years called 30 Strangers where he photographs mothers and their daughters to raise money and awareness for The Center…

earth day round-up.

Are you doing anything special for Earth Day today? Tie Dying anything? Wearing your favorite pair of Birkenstock sandals? I might whip out a craft or two this afternoon, but right now the earthiest thing on my agenda is going to feed the horses. Which is awfully earthy if you really think about it. I always end up with lots of earth, and poopy earth at that, on my shoes when I’m through. Sounds fun, right? Lots of people more…
