I’ve been asked a few times what wordpress plugins I use + love, so I thought I’d do a little round-up post. Please note that these are subjective and there are usually several kinds of plugins for any given need out there! My suggestion would be to do your research and test em’ out to see what you like best. So without further ado, here are some sweet plugins :
PINTEREST PIN IT BUTTON Nowadays, it’s trendy to have an image hover that allows your readers to “pin” images straight to their boards. There are a TON of options out there for this, but I’ve been most successful with this plugin. The reason I love it is because a separate pinterest box pops up that doesn’t interfere with your actual site. Beware of some plugins that actually take visitors away from your site.
COMMENT REPLY I personally use WordPress’ native “reply to comments” feature in my theme, but if yours doesn’t have that enabled and you don’t know how to do so – I would suggest using a simple plugin like this one or this one. These work straight out of the box and send an email to anyone who has received a reply to their comment. I think having something like this enabled is KEY for communication within your blog. I absolutely love replying to comments on my end and the discussions that ensues!
Our trip to France is only two weeks and one day away, which blows my mind. Like I’ve mentioned before, I’ve actually never been to Europe before. Michael has, but that was awhile ago. We’ve been working ultra fast to get everything ready before we go. Making reservations, researching logistical details, buying tickets + nicer travel bags — etc. etc. All of you who have sent emails and given suggestions so far have been such a blessing! I’m not sure I could have wrapped my head around everything in such a short period of time.
So with that said, I thought I would ask one more little thing from you guys on the off hand chance you had some thoughts you’d like to share. And that little thing is all about where to eat without dropping a ton of money everywhere. We plan on getting lost + walking around lots, so location doesn’t really matter. But just in case you’re curious, we will be spending four nights near Bastille and three in Montmartre. Again, thanks for all your help so far!
I’m excited to share a special moodboard with you guys today!! My new designer Maddy Nye started working with me at the beginning of this month, so I thought I would share one of HER moodboards created for a client project with you guys. This brand will be hip + spirited while maintaining a simple approach. Can’t wait to share more!
It’s been a few weeks since the last wantlist, but since the weather has changed — I’ve been feeling all sorts of earthy. Although we don’t have a house yet, it hasn’t stopped me from dreaming of backyard space + more room for pretty things. EARTHY things. I like that in the above products, you have a natural base with a few pops of color. One of my favorite items is that red pillow, but let’s face it … it’s pretty darn spendy for something that sits on your couch. A girl can dream, right?? Check out the rest of these goodies below!

This week’s mixtape is fairly slow in pace, but still exciting in its own way. I always need a good dose of that during my work day to keep me going, that’s for sure! I quickly realized that Lana Del Rey becomes a staple when the weather gets HOT. She exudes that summer feeling, eh?? Just like that photo up there. I could totally pop this mix in and take a nice + long hot summer drive wherever. Listen below :
