Click here to watch our morning news piece with WJZ, CBS Local Baltimore! It was so important to talk about all the vendors and organizations we've worked with and I'm really happy this came out to start our new year! #happynewyear #shoplocal very grateful to Linh Bui (who we respect for all her work but in particular her coverage of the Baltimore riots).
Our line at the 'Made in Baltimore' popup shop is featured at 20 W North Ave in the Station North area. We had such a great time vending at the Charm City Night Market and have restocked and grown the inventory for this next event, supporting local artists and makers. If you're in the market for clothing, furniture, and more, for upcoming holiday gifts- they're all made by residents in Baltimore.
The codex club joined the very first Charm City Night Market this year in downtown Baltimore's historic and largely now extinct Chinatown. We sold out of most of our items in the first few hours and have taken it as a learning experience; Always come prepared to sell more! Such a great experience, that exceeded our expectations. Thank you to the Chinatown Collective, point-person Stephanie Hsu, and our neighboring vendors Timpla and Michelle Lu for being awesome to work with! It was a pleasure.

Our recommendations: Beer and Pomegranate Lemonade, and the Strongman Pizza.
So it seemed fitting for our Fourth of July to explore Maryland's Capital, and America's Sailing Capitol.
There is so much history here. Driving in is idyllic and calm, the Naval Academy dominates a lot of the landscape downtown, but there is also a lot to do near the harbor and Main street as far as sightseeing and...
It's not always the safest, most glamorous, or creative- but there were a few projects that I thought, alright this was good.
1. I play a bitchy college girl to the main character in the beginning of Noah Baumbach's 'Mistress America'. This filmed up in Columbia University and got me my SAG card.
2. You might remember...
Day 1 click here, and Day 2 pt 1 Myrtle Beach and Charleston, Day 3 Savannah.
Going South from Georgia, we stopped in Jacksonville and discovered a place called Taco Librethat had the most incredible, huge $3 horchatas and tacos. This was the only restaurant that prompted us to take leftovers with us on the road. And let me tell you, eating pork tacos...

(Prints of the photo below, because I'm in love with it, are available here.)
Savannah was a great place to be immersed in Southern Gothic-ness and it's own definite culture. We've heard so many things from...
Here is a video montage of our morning biking through this wonderful city. A lot of people visiting Charleston South Carolina, choose to rent bikes and go by the water, and I completely understand why, now. This is the third part of our earlier road trip posts along the East Coast (see also, Virginia Beach and Wilmington, and Myrtle Beach).
Stayed at the Spectator Hotel, easily...
The rain was coming down really hard, the morning we set off for Myrtle Beach. This city is on South Carolina’s Atlantic coast, and the hub of the Grand Strand, a 60-mile string of beaches. The plan had been to get toes wet at the...

Been taking photos around Maryland through the fall and winter so far this year (here's when I posted some in January).
Just added some new Spring photos to my Shutterstock Profile!
So so so excited for the...
Baltimore's been getting an insane amount of rain the last few weeks. There was hail once or twice too. As you can imagine- it adds to a lot more driving time. At least it's not cookie dough.
Here are three simple ideas I use to try and stay motivated on days like this.
1. Start Energized. The majority of people wake up and go about their days dehydrated....

I am so proud of this 'Freshly Baked Cookies'candle scent mixture. I have to give Mark credit for helping come up with it- it really does smell like you just made a batch of fresh-baked cookies and it warms the feeling of the whole house. We thought of the concept while living in a hotel for two weeks back in January due to flooding...
Being from Texas, there are a few country songs that bring me back. Started watching Nashville recently. Really liked the storyline between Deacon and Rayna. This song and 'Sanctuary'; the feels.
This post is dedicated to Jenny Lai and her unique, positive vision for herself and everyone around her. We met living down the hall from each other at our arts boarding high school in Natick, MA. We'd have dance parties in her room, hang out in practice rooms, explore together. She always knows what I need, often before I do. My first time in New York was with her to scope out whether we'd want...
The best brunch- when I close my eyes and imagine my go-to order at IHOP: steak tips and eggs (poached, cut them in half over your hash browns and...
If I'm on the road, or in the other room
That's how you know, I'm thinkin' of you
When the flowers bloom, when the leaves turn brown
when the sun is hot, when the snow falls down, down
when the clouds are gray, and the sky's are blue
that's how you know, I'm thinkin' of you
You're always the first and the last thing on this heart of mine
No matter where I go or what...
Run me like a racehorse
Pull me like a ripcord
Break me down and build me up
I wanna be the slip, slip
Word upon your lip, lip
Letter that you rip, rip
Break me down and build me up
Don't wanna be the parenthetical, hypothetical
Working on something that I'm proud of, out of the box
Whatever it takes,
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins,
'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains,
Buut... people need to know.
Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic."

The codex club lip balms, were made through Herban Lifestyle and Uncommon Goods. it was so nice knowing exactly what was in this without unnecessary chemicals. Just cocoa butter, sunflower oil, sunflower oiland spearmint essential oil (and vitamin e from the medicine cabinet). And it feels amazing on your lips. Hope...
Listening to Michelle Obama's Spotify 'Forever Mine' playlist for Barack <3

Needed comfort food this weekend- so we checked out our local 'Five Guys'.
I've always been really confused about what to get because of all the add-ons and unlimited toppings. It's the same when I get salads or frozen yogurt- I make weird decisions and odd combinations that don't always make sense.
So this time, I looked on my phone in line getting to the register, and found this article by...
As Valentines Day nears: a gift that will smell like a dozen red roses for a lot longer than the flowers. Simple and clean smell with rose hips essential oil fragrance.
Happy Wednesday. Been yawning through this week.
Super Bowl LII was a pretty tight game this year, I enjoyed it.
This Doritos Blaze and Mountain Dew Ice commercial was one of my favorites!
When Game of Thrones comes back I'm thinking of watching with one in each hand (because Fire and Ice).
