Looking back at 2012, I’m amazed/humbled/honored at what a year it has been for me and this little company of mine…

  This post  “How to Wear Red Jeans, Mint Jeans” from March, went viral!


I got to do a few makeovers in the house:

Speaking of, my 3 fave D.I.Y.s of 2012:







 Meeting people I admire: Gary Oldman, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, and Autumn Reeser (and almost meeting Kelly Wearstler…2013 is the year!)


 Attending Lucky FABB West in May!

Not only were two of my brands there (Jellypop and Vanilla Bake Shop), but I got to meet a ton of beyond stylish gals, such as: Amber of Reward Style & VENZ Edits, Lauren of L.A. in the Bay, and Kelly of Off Kelly’s Hanger


 Went to New York in May for ever swoon’s launch party, and met all of these fabulous ladies:

L to R: Natalie MerrilynAlex of Things that Sparkle, Chassity of Look Linger Love, Christine of Bijou and Boheme, Naomi of Design Manifest, Gabrielle of Savvy Home, Tobe of Because It’s Awesome, Viv of Fashion Truffles, Elizabeth of Stone Textile, Tamra of ever swoon, and Roxy of Society Social.

    I’m so excited to see your little girl’s room! I’m in the middle of doing my little lady’s room and I feel like I’m a bit on idea over load… but I’ve been dying to see the finished product since your design boards. Congrats on the 10 years!
