you know those little finishing touches that take your casual little dinner party into one that your guests remember forever and tell everyone about what a good hostess you are? yeah, those are super fun. like place cards, menus are totally one of those things. you can obviously just verbally tell your guests what you’re eating, but there’s something very exciting about having a menu outside of a restaurant.   Read More

society 6 gift guide

i’ve always loved society 6 and have spent many a countless hour just browsing through their site trying to find an iphone case and end up having to choose between the top 37 i picked out. i recently teamed up with them to curate gift guides for lots of people in your life. because this is the time of year where you have to pick out wedding gifts, housewarming gifts, graduation gifts, and it can be a little tiring.

also this means that i went through and picked out some of my favorite items, saving you the trouble of having to do that yourself!

for the relative graduating, i chose some of my favorite prints for their new walls and cases for their tech.

obviously i am a proud cat lady, and thankfully not the sad kind or the ironic hipster kind, so picking out an array or cat themed gifts felt totally natural.

for the friend that needs some cheering up, whether she went through a breakup recently or just maybe hates that all her TV shows are over for the summer, i chose some motivational totes, prints and pouches to cheer her right up.

housewarming gift ideas

and lastly, housewarming gifts can be really hard because people may only want so many potted plants or bottles of wine (ok they want those too probably, but maybe something that’ll stay alive and be a constant reminder of you is good too). and how dope is that art print?

how i edit my iphone photos | almost makes perfect

i get asked about how i take my instagram photos probably more than anything else, and i promised a post on this months ago — so i figured it was finally time! we’re all our own worst critics, but i don’t see my own feed or photos and think it’s anything to write home about, so it feels a little strange to write this post honestly. but here goes!  Read More

individual medley in LA @almostmakesperfect

yay friday! we’re doing a house project and going downtown for some fun stuff so it’s not all chores and errands this weekend. last night was the first night we let rocky sleep with us (we’ve been keeping her in the guest room at night so we don’t have to worry about them fighting), and she slept next to me from midnight – 6am!!! omgggg it was so cute. OH and speaking of cats, we saw keanu last week, if you are considering seeing it go ahead and do that because i loved it so much.  Read More

printable minimal recipe cards @mollymadfis

even though i don’t write down recipes as often as i’d like to — i love writing them down. whether it’s a recipe of my moms or one that i’ve made after clipping from a magazine, it used to be my way of distinguishing it from the hundreds of recipes i’ve clipped or pinned. so i thought i’d make some recipe cards to inspire me to start it back up again.
