Happy Weekend with Tiny Atlas xo Design Wine Sunshine

I’ve just discovered {+ instantly followed} Tiny Atlas’ Instagram feed. I’m thrilled!
If you have any sort of wanderlust like me, this round-up of adventurers from around the world will be absolutely intoxicating. Via this Instagram journey, you can start your day off in the Italian bazaars for breakfast, gaze over the beach horses in Barbados for lunch, & then catch a light-studded stroll in Hong Kong – after a luxurious dinner in Paris, of course. It’s mesmerizing, & exactly the day dream I could hope for while enduring the last hurrah of winter in Colorado.

Faves from 2013…

design-wine-sunshine-13-favorite-moments-of-2013-2

A little entry to reflect on the little things – MAN o MAN – what a wonderful year. It was crazy, we were hustlin’, but every day was sweet in its very own way. A little journey from the top to bottom, we spent our first month of 2013 on a road trip from Colorado to California (it only costs $86 to get to California from Boulder, CO in a Prius)! Emerald, (the greenish-teal version, anyway) was the color of the year and I was SO in love. Blaise flew my best friend Brittany in for my birthday (the best ever). Jayda turned 70! – We threw the dog’s birthday party of the century. We underwent a HUGE home renovation (more on that when we finish). Boulder underwent extreme flooding (not a fave moment, but a huge one none the less). The Confetti Booth was soooo much fun – so many wonderful memories with my favorite man. We went on lots of beautiful Colorado hikes. Auburn had an ammmmmmmazing football season – our back to back miracle plays will forever be with our fans. And I could squeeze in some much needed art time with my fave lap companion, Kitty. Thank you to all my friends, family, blog readers, volunteers, & fellow Auburn fans (war eagle!) who’ve made this such an amazing year. Cheers to a fabulous 2014!

Happy Weekend from a Happy Beach : Beach Love by Karen Helms

Design-Wine-Sunshine-Happy-Weekend-from-a-Happy-Beach-Karen-Helms-Beach-Love Happy weekend, y’all! Anyone hitting the shore with a rad attitude like this edgy Pinterest board by Karen Helms? I love her Cali meets Hawaii vibe. And ahhhh, “Beach Love“, words that sound so symphonic right now, as Blaise and I work like mad to get a photo booth complete in time for our client’s wedding on Saturday. Eeeeek! But for all of those who can relax with sand between their toes this weekend, Aloha & cheers… may your two days be the most sublime of all.

Good as Gold : Typography

Design-Wine-Sunshine-Gold-Rush-Typography

Here’s a golden toss-out that’s close to my heart, as I’ve always, always loved warm yellow golds. Even after it went out of style and platinum took its place – still a true lover of gold accents. So you can imagine my elation to find more and more gold foil designs coming into the print world. Here are some of my favorite examples of damn good gold typography. You can find all the sources and more fave gold pieces right here on my Pinterest board : Good as Gold »
