Hank Green On The Problem With Being A Creator

Cautiously Optimistic

Forever cautiously optimistic.

Zum Clean Laundry Soap

I am obsessed with the smell of this Zum Clean Frankincense and Myrrh laundry soap. I get asked all the time, “Tina, what’s that subtle, delightful scent?” And after I ran a load of laundry the entire home smells so good. It’s a non-toxic plant-based liquid laundry soap.

Yoto Mini

The Yoto Mini almost makes me wish my kids were little again. FUN!

Reading Rhythms

Reading Rhythms is not a book club. It’s a reading party. Read with friends to curated music. I love this idea!

Garcia Expanding Paper Seats

This expandable paper bench system made me look. So incredibly cool!

(Ugh! I can’t seem to find a link to an online seller that is with a reputable company, with good consumer ratings. I am astounded how there are more and more really professional looking scammy e-commerce sites out there!)

Abbeyville Door Mat

This doormat made me chuckle. (Thank you BB!)

ps: ugh, had to take off the link to Cozymatic as they have very very poor consumer ratings and seem to be a scammy site. If you know where one can buy this doormat, let me know! I did a google image search with no success.

Everything isn’t Terrible

I am a big fan of Brad Montague. This new print stating that Everything Isn’t Terrible made me smile. (This one hangs in my home and is my favorite!)


Whatever seed

Myoung Ho Lee

I adore the work of photographer Myoung Ho Lee. I proudly display one of his photographs in my home.

Trying to Make A Life Worth Living

Everything is on fire,
but everyone I love is doing beautiful things
and trying to make life worth living,
and I know I don’t have to believe in everything,
but I believe in that.

Country Life Vlog

This couple is the most soothing content I watch these days on YouTube. Their son films them cooking and gardening. Delightfully slow. (And here is there Instagram account.)

If You Could Change One Thing About Your Body

Stay until the kids come on. They are so pure. Heart melts.

Be Realistic

Be realistic, expect a miracle.

Stackable Bed

Yep, I am on a minimal guest bed hunt. Turns out the ones I am into are not available in the US. Like this one from Manufaktum. Love the minimal aesthetic of this brand so much.

Minimal Guest Bed

I have fallen in love with this very minimal expandable guest bed by Bautier. Wish I could get it here in the US.

Pie Chart Floor Cushion

YES to this pie chart floor cushion by Donna Wilson. (Also, never not dreaming of this bear shaped cotton throw)


I feel this.


I am ready. Hibernation mode: ON

A Relaxed Woman

“Growing up, I never knew a relaxed woman. Successful women? Yes. Productive women? Plenty. Anxious and afraid and apologetic women? Heaps of them. But relaxed women? At-ease women? Women who don’t dissect their days into half hour slots of productivity? Women who prioritize rest and pleasure and play? Women who aren’t afraid to take up space in the world? Women who give themselves unconditional permission to relax? Without guilt? Without apology? Without feeling like they need to earn it? I’m not sure I’ve ever met a woman like that. But I would like to become one.”

The Magic

“The magic you’re looking for is in the work you’re avoiding.”

Hydraulic Press Girl

This is weird. And I love it. (The Avocado is my all-time favorite)

Ken Kelleher

I love love love these rainbow rugs by Ken Kelleher.
