My forever favorite source for fonts, graphics, templates and design education. Not only does DesignCuts offer creators the best prices but their customer service is unmatched.

When I was visiting the UK, I had the opportunity to stop in the DesignCuts office where they rolled out the red carpet for me and my husband, and treated us to a delightful spread of scones and cream.

As Michael Scott says, "I'm not going for bulk, I'm going for tone." 

After learning that this service offered far more than formal wear, I signed up for RTR to experiment, switch up my wardrobe and skip the dry cleaning. It's basically like gaining access to the world's greatest dress up closet. Try Rent the Runway for yourself, save 40% off of the eight or sixteen-item plans for your first two months when you use code RTRFAM592B5AE at checkout.

I had this item on my wish list for years and now that I have one I can't believe I ever lived without it.
This little machine keeps me caffeinated. looks gorgeous on the counter and has officially turned me into a coffee snob.

After using a similar looking bag until it had literally turned to shreds, I upgraded to this chic, sustainably made tote bag that I use to carry my laptop and accessories. Whether I'm traveling across the ocean or down the street to the coffee shop, my Cuyana bag never leaves my side.

It's fun to get fancy, but for the most part a prefer a natural, everyday sort of look. Ilia's makeup not only feels light on your skin, but when you wear it, you still feel like you. Best of all, it's made from clean ingredients so you can feel great about wearing it too, Their mascara is a dream!

Everyone's hair is different, so why would we all use the same thing? This company custom-creates formulas for all of your hair care products based on your age, hair type, goals and climate. Plus it smells amazing.

After an unfortunate urination incident at a Goat Yoga class, I picked up this new mat and I've been using it ever since.
