    6 Rules to Thrift By

    If you know me, you know I like to thrift — a lot. I’ve been hanging out in thrift stores since I could drive, but I really kicked it up a notch when we bought our first home. We basically outfitted out entire house from thrift stores, auctions, and Craigslist. I always have a new toy or cute outfit from a thrift store.

    I love buying things secondhand. It makes me feel good keeping things out of landfills, and getting products that were only used once and then tossed. Sometimes I think about doing that challenge where you don’t buy anything new for a year.

    Anyway, people always ask how I find awesome stuff when I’m out thrifting. Some thrift stores aren’t necessarily better than others, it’s just all about how you search.  I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about it, and here are my biggest tips:

    Come stay in some of the Coolest AirBNBs in Atlanta

    Sure, you could stay in a room in someone’s regular house when you visit Atlanta, but why not one of these? As for someone that lives here in the city, I think it’s time for a staycation! Alpacas, anyone?

    The Great LaCroix Taste-Off

    I remember when I was thirteen or fourteen and used to babysit for the kid across the street and his parents’ fridge was full of LaCroix. The mom would offer me one when I came over and I would turn up my nose, disgusted—bubbly water? No sugar? No flavor? No thanks. I’ll take seven of those sodas instead.

    Fast-forward about ten years, and club soda is all I want to drink. It helped me drink less beer because it was something else to hold in my hand and crack open with the cold ssssssssssss sound of the carbonation rushing out. I know it’s trendy, but it’s delicious. I’ve had opinions about the stuff: coconut isn’t good and lime is pretty delicious, but every other flavor kind of fell into a void of “sure, it’s water, I’ll drink it.”

    50+ Things You Didn’t Know You Could Get Custom-Made

    Custom products really set your brand apart from everyone else. To me, it’s not about just slapping your logo on everything that moves, it’s about really crafting a cohesive brand identity that effortlessly moves across mediums, from digital to print. Over time, I’ve been stockpiling a list of all of the different things you can get custom-made, to enhance your brand and reach your customers better (it’s also not really in order to help spark some inspiration).

    A Week in Isla Mujeres

    Back in February, Natasha sent us a link to this AirBNB she’d found–a house shaped like a seashell in Isla Mujeres. We just had to book it, and the next available opening was all the way in November. November 9th, to be exact. We spent nearly all of 2016 dreaming of this trip, and realized only a couple months before we left that it was the day after the presidential election.

    DIY Matchbox Promos

    I recently decided it would be fun to have some matchbooks with my information on them, to drop off in various spots and possibly capture the eyes of people who may need a designer at some point in the future. The weather is nice now, and I also needed a reason to get outside.

    When I looked at custom matchbox sites, all of the sites I liked had 5,000 minimums, and each matchbox would be about a dollar. Since I wasn’t sure if I’d like them, or enjoy having that many, I decided to make them myself.

    6 Ways to Outsource Your Brain

    Like any ~millennial,~ I’m a busy, busy person. We’re currently in the middle of renovating our house, so I’m working with the contractors, plumbers, electricians, and everyone else, while freelancing from my studio, meeting new clients, and finding time to work on side hobbies. Any way I can cut down on extraneous thinking and wasted time is a godsend to me (everything I’m trying to remember feels like too much on my [brain] plate), so I’ve tried out productivity app after productivity app. After awhile, you find that you spend more time using productivity apps than you actually are productive—which is disheartening and disappointing. I’ve been able to hone it into a couple of apps and methods that are genuinely useful, and I’ll lay them out for you here:
