The first thing I asked myself when I started looking through Tiny Atlas Quarterly was, where's my passport? Then came the follow-up: Do I have enough vacation time to fully appreciate what the Amalfi Coast has to offer? Sadly, the answer is no. For now, I'll have to depend on the travel and lifestyle journal to transport me to the sun-kissed region whenever I'm in need of a mental escape. [Confession: I've already logged many hours on the site. I can't stop staring at the spectacular photos of cliffside villages, emerald green waters and white sandy beaches.] Contributing writer Meraviglia Paper calls the south of the Italian Peninsula heaven and I totally agree.

Amalfi, photographed by the talented Magdalena Wosinska, is just one of the many enchanting places that grace the pub's virtual pages. Past issues have featured photo essays from a collective of photographers, art directors, designers, stylists and other creatives who thrive on telling stories and sharing their personal photos snapped during professional projects and jobs. Check out these other features: BarcelonaHong KongCabreraSantorini and Switzerland

Tiny Atlas Quarterly has a printed annual that can be found here. I've also just started following its Instagram feed. It's quite lovely.

Dream home

Monday, January 12

This home tour from Bolig Magazine took my breath away. Seriously. This gorgeous home belongs to Dorthe Kvist and her husband Jacob and according to the feature, she fell in love with the house at first sight. The garden architect, designer and author said it looked like a "fairy tale castle with overgrown garden, kitschy carpets and empty space." That description has just made it into my must-haves list for my own future home.

Each room in this Copenhagen home has one or two special somethings that make me smile. My favorites: The art wall, which includes a graphic collage by Anna Sorensen and Dorthe's photos from Vietnam; the kitchen's abundance of natural light, as well as the wall-mounted flower pot system that can hold herbs and other plants; the vibrant yellow table and floor cushions in that cozy work space; the entryway's giant poppy wallpaper from Osborne & Little; the gold tufted headboard in the bedroom; and the branch used as the shower rod in the bathroom. Siiiggghhhhh. This home really is a dream.

Quality over quantity. This is something I'll be telling myself this year and beyond. Have a great weekend!

Her Style

Thursday, January 8

Rima Vaidila is a self-proclaimed cool girl with a minimalist style that I just adore. She's the blogger behind Fire on the Head and her What I Wore posts spotlight the no-fuss fashion staples that have become my uniform at the office: skinnies, booties and some kind of drapey sweater. For more style inspiration take a look at her site. You'll be scrolling for days.

Need Supply Co.

Wednesday, January 7

When temps reached 85 degrees in LA yesterday, I said a mental goodbye to my heavier coats and sweaters. I wallowed in sadness for a bit, but I perked up when I saw Need Supply Co.'s Pre-Spring 2015 lookbook. The color palette is perfection, and I love the simplicity and how transitional the pieces are. Also, the Benson dress is sweet and the Triangle Midi Dolman dress is amazing with its open back. So, ok, I'm starting to get excited for spring. 

'Gram envy

Monday, January 5

New year, new Instagrammer to follow. This weekend, I found Luisa Brimble's feed and was immediately pulled into her world of vibrant plants and flowers, welcoming table settings and charming interiors. Her work is stunning. The Sydney-based food and lifestyle photographer and founder of the Alphabet Family Journal has easily become one of my favorite photographers. You can find more of Luisa's work here.

Taking some time off...

Monday, November 24

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts. Two weeks ago, my dad had triple bypass heart surgery so we've been focused on his recovery since he's been home. He's getting stronger each day but he's still not 100 percent. I'm going to take a little break and hope to start posting again mid-December. 

With Thanksgiving coming up in a few days, I have a lot to be thankful for. I am so grateful that my dad had the best doctors and nurses around before and after his surgery. I also want to thank you for visiting my little blog and checking out what inspires and makes me smile. I hope you're all surrounded by friends and family this holiday season. Talk to you later!!

Fine Life Company

Tuesday, November 4

Last week, I was reblogging and liking lots of photos on Tumblr and saw a couple from Fine Life Company floating around. Curious, I clicked on the link and immediately oohed and aahed over pretty things that would make perfect gifts for the fast approaching holiday season. 

What makes Fine Life Company unique? Store owner Emily Benziger curates new, found and made goods that follow Made in the USA and Fair Trade practices. I was so happy to see her feature products from some of my favorite brands like Apolis and Considerthewldflwrs.

This site will be one of my go-to places, not just for holiday shopping, but for year-round shopping. Can't wait to check out Emily's new finds in the next few weeks. For now, these apothecary products - thisthis and this - are callin' my name. 

CORRECTION: In an earlier post, I mistakenly called Fine Life Company, Fine Line Company. My apologies to Emily. I vow to never blog past midnight. 

Defined: Redamancy
