Clearing Space with Picture Keeper Connect

02.01.17

Gone are the days of not being able to snap photos from my phone because I don’t have enough storage! Thankfully the Picture Keeper is to the rescue and now I’m able to capture everyday moments at my hearts content.

Restore your sanity by never getting the "Cannot Take Photo" message on your phone. The Picture Keeper Connect allows you to save your photos right to the device & clears up space immediately! Learn more by clicking here or PIN to save for later. | Modish and Main

The Picture Keeper couldn’t come into my life at a better time! It felt like weeks after I got my brand new iPhone 6 + last year that I was getting that dreaded “Cannot Take Photo” message. I swear there have been days I’ve wanted to chuck my phone across the room. I’ve cleared off every app I may not use on the regular, had less that 40 photos at any given time (couldn’t even take a video) and I’m still getting that message. Does anyone else feel like these phone companies sabotage your storage just so you feel like you need to go drop another $700 on a new phone?

Weekend Recap 1.0

Weekend Recap on Modish and Main | Playing dominoes at Rumfish Y Vino in Ventura, CA

Let’s kick off a new series on the blog this year giving you a little glimpse inside what my I’m up to on the weekend! Often times, it’s not much, but there are some bursts of energy to get out & play.

Can we first discuss who’s brilliant idea it was to work 5 days and have only 2 days off? Actually, I think I know this answer. It may have started with Henry Ford creating the car & by popular demand of the vehicles, he had to move to more production. Blah! The funny thing is, as my own boss, I certainly don’t have to condemn to these standards. I’ve considered doing the 4-day workweek & leaving Friday’s for creative outlets, educational learning, etc.

Travel Log : Winter Wonderland in Beaver Creek, CO

01.25.17

Just returned from yet another amazing  trip to the winter wonderland of Beaver Creek, CO. From skiing all day to sipping wine by the fireplace and the occasional jaunt in the fresh powder, it was an incredible experience to add to my 2017 travel log.

So our trip to Beaver Creek has become an annual thing with my Dad and brother, Ryan. It’s our 4th year in a row and each time it keeps getting better. With the crazy amount of snow that the mountain ranges have been getting we were hoping that some fresh snowfall would happen while we were there. Thankfully, our wishes came true and I FINALLY got to ski in fresh powder!

Here’s the thing, I’ve always had a thing for handwriting. Since the 3rd grade I’ve been getting complimented on my penmanship and still do today. Thus, when this calligraphy and brush lettering  craze really took off I thought I could easily jump on board and it would come naturally. WRONG! There is definitely an art and a skill to it that requires lots of practice. Thankfully, Heather from Brown & Co Designs had a seat open up in her Ventura workshop held at Madewest Brewery and I jumped at the opportunity to learn firsthand from someone who knows what they’re doing!

Last week when I was working on my list of New Years Resolutions the first item I put down was to keep exploring. Having been so adventurous in 2016, I had found something within me that contained a deep passion for exploring the world around me. This doesn’t mean hopping on a plane to go half way around the world all the time, but rather the ability to keep exploring anything from within my own city, to the state I live in and everywhere in between. I just want to get out my camera and see things, feel new experiences and live life through amazing memories rather than material things.

Wrapping up 2016 | Modish and Main favorite blog posts.

My love for being in the kitchen has grown substantially over the past year as I continue to learn to cook, bake and serve delicious meals that are gluten and dairy free. The most used recipe is my homemade vanilla almond milk. It’s used to make anything from 4-ingredient cookies to açai bowls, caramel sauce and gourmet chia seed pudding.
