Lizzie Williams On The Importance of Empathy, Community, and Being Comfortable in Your Own Skin

A few jobs ago, I had the pleasure of working with the very talented Lizzie Williams. She was in marketing, and was often helping out with things in the application development department where I worked, so we ran into each other often. Her style, in one, self-described word is, "comfortable," which in my opinion is what Lizzie is to everyone she meets. Whether she's in jeans and a hoodie, or a peppy blazer and heels, she is someone who takes the time to listen, understand, and empathize, she exudes confidence and kindness, and the world is a better place because of people like her.

3 Swoon-Worthy Sofa Colors to Freshen Up Your Living Space

Most of us have some case of the winter blues right now, but that doesn't mean that being cooped up inside has to be a drab experience. These colors are popping up everywhere, and going nowhere. They are timeless, flexible, and adaptable to any style, most color schemes, and while they are attention-getters, won't take the focus away from artwork, standout accessories or statement pieces. These colors will go equally well with silver, brass, or iron hardware as well as warm, cool, light or dark floors, and trust my when I say accessorizing these colors is SO. MUCH. FUN. Have fun with these and always keep an open mind in your home designs.

4 Ways to Save Your Time And Money Without Lifting a Finger

The holidays are pretty crazy for us. We really enjoy taking part in holiday traditions like decorating the tree, hanging stockings, baking cookies, and most of all, spending money. Whether it be for gifts, decorations, party supplies, etc. it is hard, maybe even impossible, to not spend extra money during the holidays. This stuff also takes time. Picking out presents, taking the baby to see Santa, returning all the stuff you get that you don't want, it all takes time. I really like things to run efficiently in our house so that I can use my brain to create and develop important things rather than make a million decisions about errands and trivial tasks. Here is a list of some of the brands and programs that I use to help stay sane this time of year. These tools will help to automate your life, your savings and add a bit of time back into your day.

The Ultimate Gift Guide for Your Inner Child

We all have friends and family who are difficult to buy for, so I thought I'd write some posts to help you out. This time of year, I really get into holiday movies, freshly baked cookies and just generally acting like a kid again. This gift list is for that friend, colleague, family member, or even yourself that refuses to grow up. Unfortunately for them (or you), biology has a way of making things progress, but with these unique, stylish and super fun gifts, you can keep them joking, laughing and smiling all the way over the hills and through the woods to grandmother's house or whatever the song says.

Keeping it Classy with Crate and Barrel's Modern Halloween Decor

While I'm a fan of Etsy-esq decor and am fully aware that I'm just a few years, if not months away from a fridge covered in beautiful scribbles, I like my decor like I like my fashion; high end modern, clean cuts and lines and on trend, so I hope you enjoy these Halloween inspired items for this spooky time of year. They'd make a great setting for a fancy cocktail costume party.
