I run a small freelance business out of my small apartment on the north shore of Oahu. The constant sunshine has gone straight to my brain, and on top of that I just had a baby. Life is insanely busy, constantly chaotic and one big, giant, beautiful mess! Here are a few things I love and think make life more beautiful.
Baby on the Brain
Being a mother is one of life’s greatest callings but, it is not always the most glamorous. It’s new, scary, and harder than you ever imagined. There are however, those sweet little moments that make all your worries disappear. These are a few things that make being a mom more fun! I really love the “it’s ok” banner, I find myself saying that a million times a day!

Quick Design Essentials
When I design projects for clients, I like to include some links to things they can buy or make themselves to give their branding or packaging that perfect little handmade touch. A little handmade goes a long way. Here are some links to my go-to items.
A Little Fashion Pick-Me-Up
As a new mom with a hectic schedule, I don’t always have time to get ready for the day. Here are a few favorites that you can add to any outfit for an instant fashion pick-me-up.
