Kate's Picks
  1. With the sweet spring air just around the corner (for some), it’s time we begin prepping our closets for the warmer, longer days on the horizon. Some of us (I’m talkin’ to you, my fellow Midwesterners) know damn well we can’t wish the snow and cold away quite yet. But just because we may have to …

  2. Art has a special place in the home, and the way we display it can change its meaning and impact on those who enjoy it day in and day out. Displaying artwork is one way I keep my home fresh, and more recently I completed a gallery wall in my living room, consisting of 15 framed …

  3. It’s officially that time of year again… when motivation is at an all-time low and no matter how much sleep I get, I can’t seem to break the habit of hitting snooze fifteen plus times in the morning. I honestly feel like that Hibernol SNL skit where Chris Farley drinks the cold and flu medication and …

  4. I have a confession to make: I don’t really like Valentine’s Day. There, I said it. And come to think of it, I never have.   Sure, I adore the idea of showering loved ones with hugs and kisses — and let’s be real, I’ll take chocolate and champagne ANY day — but the idea of …

  5. I have a sneaking suspicion that your creativity is undervalued. Here’s a friendly reminder that the world needs it, desperately. Whether you’re seeking to write the next Mean Girls or cross-stitch an Etsy-optimized Pokemon hankie, your talent can bring happiness, inspiration and maybe even enlightenment to others. So kick this year off by valuing your creativity, …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. It was as if the entire Bay Area was taking a nap the day I recently reunited with my beloved Bianca Sotelo, stylist and friend extraordinaire. The light drizzle and grey skies had seemingly hypnotized the city – except us, who spent the better part of an otherwise throwaway Thursday on one of those good-for-the-soul lady …

  8. Matt Oholendt was my first kiss, my high school best friend and the great love of my life before I even knew what that meant. The fact that we were married at the ripe age of 21 and 23 surprised no one (aside from us) and while the majority of our friends chose to settle down …

  9. Did you know there were at least seven Saint Valentines (and one Saint Valentina) martyred throughout history for holding fast to their hope, faith, and love? Love is not for the faint of heart. Even the best moments in love require the courage to receive them—and the worst ones, well, those leave us gasping for air. …

  10. Wife, mama of two, and LA-based designer, Sarah Sherman Samuel, sets herself apart in the design world with her clean and modern style that always includes a touch of something unique or unexpected. You may have seen her design work on Pinterest or while scrolling through inspirational interior pics on IG. Sarah previously worked as a creative …

  11. BROUGHT TO YOU BY Stella & Chewy’s

    I’ve been relatively quiet here at work. Not knowing if this is our last baby or not (jury is still out on this one), I’ve been doing my best to take it nice and slow and enjoy every single minute with my children. Between the coos and snuggles and laughter, I do every once and awhile …

  12. I will preface this by giving my routine “I don’t have all the answers” schpeel, BUT! I have learned a few key things since I was recently booted out of the nest (fired from my job) and have had to re-work the way my brain has lived for twenty-seven years and although it’s a massive work …

  13. Minneapolis hosted the Super Bowl last week and some brilliant minds branded our city with #BoldNorth. It was great. Our long list of frigid outdoor festivities was basically a dare to just try to be as bold as us. But you can betcha the folks in town for the big game experienced a lot more Minnesota Nice …
