My worklaxing weekend just got Cancelled! Working late last night when I was surprised by these to who came home from school. We've only been able to skype and quick phone calls all Summer! Went to bed late talking and laughing and will be with friends on the weekend enjoying their visit. So instead will be lots of food and of course the dominoes will be out in style! I'm putting my toys away for a couple of days and deal with it on Monday or maybe Tuesday if to tired. For tomorrow is not promised and with all these horrific acts happening this time is so important to have and love one another more! Hope you all have an amazing weekend and good quality time with family and friends! #favoruweddingslove

'Twas a Beach Day. 'Twas not a day at this beach, but 'twas a day at a beach nonetheless. Here is a photo to illustrate such beachiness.β˜€οΈπŸŒ€βœ¨πŸ€˜

Happy Friday! Today calls for macarons and champagne, simply because it's been a long week! In case we haven't met, I'm Steph, virtual interior designer of all things magically retro and glamorously whimsical. Here's some things you might not know about me:
____
I'm a huge geek. From sci-fi to classic lit. If I'm not dressed super feminine, I'm probably in a Star Wars shirt.
____
I sort of collect aprons- meaning I have a ton and use them all. I think it started when my grandma couldn't find one that she liked, so I sewed her one.
____
I'll search near and far for a good burger. We're talking gourmet, Bobby Flay style stuff. It's my weakness.
____
So say hey in the comments and tell me something about yourself. We're almost to the weekend! #fridayintroductions πŸ“Έ: @carolinewphoto

All you need is love... and cereal 🌈

A pretty organized pantry does hurt either. Had so much setting this one up this week. Lots of questions about the product we used on Instastories so like or screenshot this pic to shop with @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/2sq0g Or shop our website with link in bio. πŸ‘†πŸ» #liketkit

I missed the sea more than I realized. So glad to be here.

Say hello to this amazing little shop on Morro Bay. @theindiecollectivemorrobay is my very first stockist! Thank you, Jasmine, for the wonderful collection of artisan made goods and for allowing my little toys to be part of it. Seriously, if you're in California, you need to stop by and see all of the wonderfulness. The view from outside is pretty cool too. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜β›°

Because you think you're cute and still feeling yourself that you take a photo in the cereal aisle. πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ‘πŸ˜… #somethingsabouther #stahfamily @freeexpressionssalon #hairapy #flashbacks

What the world needs now is love, sweet love πŸ’• .β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I've been at a loss the last few days. Posting here just hasn't felt right. This isn't a political page, but this is a lifestyle page and that lifestyle is LOVE. AUTHENTICITY. KINDNESS. JOY. .β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Our country, our world needs light ✨ art 🎨 and love πŸ’• more than ever. Let's work to infuse love into everything we do. Be patient and let that person in front of you while sitting in traffic. Genuinely ask the stranger in the elevator how their day is going. Hold the door for the person carrying coffee. Smile. At everyone. Most importantly, stand up and speak out for what you believe in. For what is right. For what is love. #chooselove .β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Tell me something you are grateful for today so we can get those good vibes going. I am grateful for 9 ! years of LOVE with this guy, as of yesterday, and 2 years married as of next week. I can't believe it! πŸ’•βœ¨#lovewillwin #lostluxe πŸ“· by @jasonburnsphotography and dress by @lindeedaniel

I'm giving away 2 bottles of Citrus Fresh to the first two people who grab their Premium Starter Kit with me by 10PM (EST) tonight!

Citrus Fresh is a combination of Orange, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Lemon, and Mandarin oils with a hint of Spearmint. It offers a refreshing aroma that you can diffuse to transform your home, work, and classroom spaces.

It's the perfect replacement for chemical-based home fragrances - just combine a few drops with distilled water in a spray bottle and spritz throughout rooms and closets and over linens!

G O L D Saturday night cocktail 🍹Rose & Tarragon Gin lemonade πŸŒΉπŸ“· @heatherchristo

Well I've already had a glass of champagne, how about you? Maybe I'll chase it with this beauty from @beautifulpaper Cheers to the weekend!

Isn't nature amazing?β €

For all that we've been battling wildfires this summer, it isn't all doom and gloom.β €
β €
I took a walk with hubs in one of our local forests the other day and we randomly came across this little guy carved in one of the trees!β €
β €
Kind of creepy, yes but also kind of awesome!β €
β €
It's things like this that make this island a really cool place to live. You just never know what you're going to find when you set foot outside your font door!β €

What cool things do you have out and about where you live?

flashback Fri-yay to my favourite place in the world. Cape Breton always puts everything in perspective ❀

Just in case you were wondering what the face behind the WGS name looked like...β €
β €
Here I am!β €
β €
And if you look closely at my left arm, you'll see a tattoo. I designed it myself. It covers the top half of my left arm and goes up my neck and down my back. I also have one on my right foot and on my right wrist. β €
β €
I never really thought much about it before but I guess the hours spent in school (hours I'd later use to design my tattoos) plus the many more on a masters in business management and in all manner of creative endeavours, kind of solidified the inevitability that I would become the #creativepreneur I am today.β €
β €
And so, as I find myself designing another quirky illustration for a client whilst slotting in some valuable writing time, I just want to say cheers to the awesome #WeAretheCreativeEconomy hashtag setup by @risingtidesocietyβ €
for giving us the opportunity to band together and grow this creative economy into a wealthy one.β €
β €
For it is with our collective creativity that we will truly grow.β €

Been MIA but fun things coming soon, like these leopard print earrings. πŸŒˆπŸ’•

Monastery of Varlaam. Perched on the rocks of Meteora. The light on the clouds reminded me that 'Every cloud has a silver lining!' No clouds on this holiday!!!

Full face of the look I'm showing you in today's tutorial. (Link in bio)

Absolutely incredible. Blueberry panacotta with Chia Granola and pear infused in local Noosa honey. Topped off with a pineapple and mint juice.

Labradorite: great for enhancing intuition and helpful in balancing and protecting your aura. Our "Love Shield" necklace is the perfect talisman.

Friday introduction:

I want to thank all of our new followers and introduce myself while I'm at it. My name is Michelle and I am the founder and creative director of Wedding Story Writer.
I haven't had a professional use photo taken since 2015. In this picture my hair was made to look shorter but it's actually halfway down my back. I wanted to see what it would look like to have short hair. I've had long hair since the 1990's and although I'm kind of ready for a change, I also fear cutting it.

I have naturally curly hair and it gets extremely out of control with the slightest bit of humidity, making me look like I stuck my finger in a light socket. So if you randomly see me on the street chances are I'm going to look pretty wild-headed. 😁

I wear a lot of black, love moonstones, and I can't wear stilettos due to having had two stress fractures in my right foot.
I have four kids--two adult daughters and two teen/preteen sons.
My husband of nearly 16 years is also my art director.
That's it for today. Have a happy weekend everybody!

There's been so much *noise* in the world lately, it's been awfully hard to feel much "peaceful joy." When I slow down, stop obsessively checking the news, I find moments of peace - listening to my son explain his latest Lego transformer creation, giving my full presence to a patient, eating a delicious salad made with my backyard tomatoes, petting my cat. . . I'm savoring these moments, building PEACEFUL JOY in my heart so I can bring more of it into the world. It sure needs it. πŸŒŸπŸ’š

It's a good day for a photo shoot. I'm not a photographer, but when you run an ecommerce business, you need great pics. After trying lots of different set ups, this is my favorite method so far.

Alright. This is the kind of cloud cover that needs to not be here on Monday so that I can see the eclipse. 🌚

I'll be going on a slight roadtrip to get in the path of totality. One last hurrah before school starts. πŸŽ‰

Who is going to catch a glimpse of the eclipse?
