Meet the neighbors.

So I recently participated in a super fun e-class with the fabulous and brilliant Holly Becker. If you aren't familiar with Holly then get thee over to Decor8 as soon as you finish reading this post! Of course she's one of the tippy top design bloggers out there, but she also happens to be one of the most insanely cool, smart, fun, impossibly sweet ladies around! (Can you tell I love Holly??)

Holly recently taught a super bangin' course called Blogging Your Way and it was just the kick in the pants I needed to get back up on the blogging horsey. Besides getting to know Holly, one of the best parts of the class was getting to meet so many cool ladies (and two guys!) and check out the crazy assortment of blogs everyone was producing. I wanted to give a little shout out to my classmates and share a handful of my new discoveries with you:


OK I admit I have major header envy on this one folks. This blog is so pretty and sweet....just like I imagine the three crafty ladies who run it to be.

Visual Blog of Lady Ann

Beautifully currated schtuff from the gal with the fanciest name around! I think Lady Ann and I are separated at birth, we have such a similar aesthetic. She's already become a regular read for me. If you like Lady A west coast (that would be me) I think you'll really like Lady A east coast.


Lovely sweet blog from a mommy of two cute lil lads….I don't know Miss Rebekah but judging from her posts she is a total sunshine girl (she recently cut her hair to help make a wig for her MIL who is undergoing chemo). It doesn't get any sweeter than that!


This girlie is charming as all get out and offers up such a fun range of posts. Anyone who can mix design posts with Lady Gaga and Real Housewives is A-OK in my book!

 Also a big shout out to my swell team mates, who were super supportive and gave me some great (and totally helpful) feedback. Thanks guys!

  1. Thanks so much for mentioning me! I'm enjoying your blog as well :)

  2. Thanks for the shoutout, Alex! I agree, Holly's class was fantastic and I am loving the opportunity to get to know so many other aspiring bloggers! You rock! Juliet ::

  3. well Miss Lady A (of the west coast), you are too funny! I'm actually not in the east coast though...more like in the mountains! (Denver to be exact!)..but I did live in the east coast for awhile so I guess it counts.
    PS. I love the way you write! lots of love sweetie, Lady A (of the east coast)

  4. Oh wow, I just found this and I'm speechless. Okay not speechless because for me to be without words I would need to have my tongue cut out. But you know, really flattered like and happy like and weeee! you really, really like me. :) :)
