Kate Smith : Katewordsmith / Arts & Culture Contributor
Kate prefers to listen. To strangers chatting in coffee shops, a handful of comedic podcasts, and friends sharing articles, ideas and opinions on social media. So when she does decide to chime in, you know her thoughts have had some time to marinate. When the mood strikes, she’s the voice behind Katewordsmith, a modestly humorous, mostly self-deprecating Twitter account and eponymous copywriting studio for creative clients in the Midwest. She makes her home in Minneapolis-St. Paul with her equally self-loathing husband, ironically-verbose infant son and untamed Boston Terrier.

Alecia Zasiebida : The Likes of Us / Style Contributor
Alecia is the voice/designer behind The Likes of Us , a lifestyle blog that centers around design, style, food, and anything else that happens to catch her eye. She currently calls Chicago home where she can be found drinking one to many cups of coffee, while obsessing over Pinterest, and planning her next travel destination.

Melissa Oholendt : Melissa Oholendt Photography / Photography Contributor 
Melissa Oholendt loves many things in life but photography and a great bottle of champagne top that ever-expanding list. In her spare time she dabbles in latte foam art (not really), being Justin Timberlake’s back-up dancer (in her dreams) and singing ridiculous songs to her dog (this is, sadly, true). Her Editorial Client List includes Wit & Delight, Emily Henderson, Target, Juut Salonspa, Verily Magazine and more.

Carla Fahden : Color me Carla / Design Contributor
Carla Fahden is a design director and illustrator based out of Minneapolis, MN. She started Color Me Carla, a stationery brand and lifestyle blog, in 2010. She is inspired by the simple life and drawn to timeless style, clean yet lived-in interiors and all things navy blue. When not at a photo shoot in NYC or locked in her home office with the space heater cranked to 200 degrees, you can find Carla in the woods playing with her dogs, spending time with her family in Northern Wisconsin or in the kitchen hosting imaginary cooking shows with her hubby, Jack.

Sarah Kieffer : The Vanilla Bean Blog / Food Contributor  
Sarah Kieffer spends much of her time taking photographs, and in the kitchen with her two little ones. She loves to use any available free time re-reading good books and sipping cold press. She shares her recipes and musings at The Vanilla Bean Blog, a space dedicated to creating a family food history.

Jackie Reisenauer : Munster Rose / Floral Contributor
Jackie is the Owner & Creative powering Munster Rose – a floral, styling, and design studio in Minneapolis. Her clients include Warby Parker, Madewell, Target, and others. Follow Jackie on Instagram for a peek into her daily styling and floral adventures.
