Moodboard – Copenhagen in May Travel Wardrobe

Moodboard – Copenhagen in May Travel Wardrobe

I really love traveling and exploring new places and try to do at least one big trip a year. This year I'm going to Copenhagen for a week at the beginning of May. Last year I was researching going to Scandinavia but the timing didn't work out for me. I was also struggling with wanting to see everything but not wanting to be gone for a long time. So a few weeks ago when I saw that plane tickets were very reasonably priced to go to Copenhagen I decided that I'd go for a week. I'm going to stay in the city the whole time and do a bunch of day trips to explore some other cities too. 

The Ultimate Guide to Fabric Shopping in Los Angeles

The Ultimate Guide to Fabric Shopping in Los Angeles

I've lived in LA for about 10 years and while I haven't been to every store (there are too many!) I've done my fair share of hunting and I have a lot of favorites. Los Angeles is a big, spread out city with a lot of different neighborhoods so if you are visiting for a short time and have your heart set on fabric shopping, I recommend doing a bit of planning. Fortunately, most of the fabric shopping is located downtown in the garment district, known as the LA Fashion District. I've created a handy-dandy google map for you to use with all my favorite fabric and notions shops, plus a few sights and eats to keep you inspired and nourished on your journey. Read on for more details.

DIY Tutorial – Buckwheat Travel Pillow

DIY Tutorial – Buckwheat Travel Pillow

I’ve never been one of those walking through the airport with a pillow around my neck kind of people but during my last big trip, I saw this pillow at Muji and decided that I needed one. And, of course, I had to sew it myself with one big change. Instead of the plastic microbeads that are used in the Muji pillow, I filled my pillow with buckwheat hulls. Buckwheat hulls are the outer shell of the buckwheat seed. They are very lightweight and, of course, more eco-friendly than plastic beads.
