Odds and Ends


1. This woman sees 100 million colors, and she created a lipstick line. Very cool. (Sadly, they aren’t green/clean.)

2. If women wrote men the way men write women. Brilliant.

3. This really hit a nerve.

4. And I suppose this will hit many of yours. (I’ve never had a pet, so I have no opinion on the matter.)

5. “Issues in your tissues.” I had an intense emotional release this week during my yoga practice.

6. Now I get it! I never realized this about Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance single.

7. Always love Martha Beck. Great read on conquering depression, pain, and addiction.

8. I’m pretty sure I would break both of my ankles in an attempt to wear these pretty heels.

9. Okies! Be sure to read up about the state ballot questions! Will we actually get alcohol in grocery stores LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD?!

10. This is the reality of Trump supporters. A child in a gas chamber? My God.

11. How to raise kinder, less entitled kids according to science. I like science.

Happy Friday to you all. Hope you enjoy your weekend.

Bullet Journals Made Simple

Guess what, friends? I have a newish obsession with bullet journaling. It started about a month and a half ago, and I simply can’t stop won’t stop. The entire process is truly fantastic, especially FINALLY being able to keep all of my thoughts, inspiration, and weekly planning in one place.

A few weeks ago, I filmed a Facebook Live video on all things bullet journal, and thought I would post it here for you if you’re interested in taking the plunge. I’ve also rounded up my favorite supplies, links, and daily inspiration. Enjoy!




Falling For These Boots

Folks, I’m just going to put it out there. I am a fan of boots. (You probably know this, however. I mean, NOT REALLY A SECRET, SARAH.) I love boots. Knee-high, bootie, over-the-knee, flat, heeled, you name it, I’m probably coveting at least 10 pairs at this very moment.

So, I’m thinking we probably should talk about the newest addition to my boot collection, this gorgeous pair of over-the-knee suede boots by Børn Shoes. (The Kathleen Boot in Marmotta, to be exact. Details, friends.) This boot is gorgeous. Will you look at that rich chocolate suede? That right there is the perfect shade that pairs seamlessly with anything, and the comfort level is fantastic.


The are a few cool things about this boot that I’d like to point out. First off, the soles are hand-stitched all the way from the toe up to the heel, which means the shoe is much more flexible to walk in AND (bonus) lasts a lot longer that shoes that have been glued together. This hand-sewn construction is actually an old world technique that Børn has been using for years. Faaancy.

Also? RUBBER SOLES. (A huge factor in the comfort level, I suppose.) But not just comfort, though. These puppies will be great during the winter, as some of my leather-soled boots tend to bite the dust.



I’m a big fan of over-the-knee boots, especially in the dead of winter when my legs tend to feel more like frozen blocks of ice than actual human limbs. I’m planning on wearing these again and again and again.


The Kathleen Boot by Børn is available at select Nordstrom retailers and nordstrom.com.
