Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. so cute! I love everything! where are the little cupcake animal toppers from? and of course that nursery that you designed is amazing. I love the ikea hack. I love a circus theme.

  2. That looks so professional – I could never pay that much attention to detail. Some people just blow me away!
