Talking on The Everygirl

This week I'm on The Everygirl talking about opening an online shop alongside two other amazing business owners! I am so honored to have the opportunity to talk about Fine Life Co/online businesses and offer advice to readers who are looking to do the same. This has been such an incredible journey and now here we are, two months away from one year in business!

One thing that has been brought up in emails, is that many didn't know that I actually work full-time aside from working on Fine Life Co (basically full-time too)! It's a lot of work, but has been extremely beneficial in growing the company, as I don't take a cent out of the business for myself. I'm hoping that in the next year or so I am able to do FLCO 24/7, but right now it's about building the shop + finding the time and balance to get everything done each day. I'm extremely lucky that FLCO is so much fun and never feels like work. I wanted to add this to the post because it's true, no dream is too big. If you want something bad enough and work at it hard enough, it will happen!

I'm always around to answer any questions, so don't hesitate to comment or email!

Bedtime Scenes

If you've been following this blog for awhile you probably know this nightstand from West Elm has been on my list for forever. After cleaning out my closet and having some extra money on-hand, I finally did it. This is my first "investment" piece in the house (aka not Ikea)... and it feels pretty good! Now to just get one for David's side of the bed- ha!

Styling

 Since launching Fine Life Co, I've really taken an interest in product/promo shots (obviously). The excitement of getting in new products and styling them in different ways is such an exciting feeling. Photographing all our products myself has really helped me because a) I don't rely on anyone's schedule (and Rachel is always down to shoot anything and everything), b) I know my style and what I want the photo to look like, so it's much easier to achieve and c) Cost. Effective.

Recently I've been taking promo shots for one of my favorite skincare lines (and a vendor of Fine Life Co), Herbivore Botanicals. We share the same taste for light and airy white backgrounds + fresh/natural elements in photos. Their brand/packaging is so beautiful, so it's really easy to get pretty shots of their products.

Sometimes I think I'm crazy for juggling as much work as I do... but I'm having so much fun! I hope to get into more styling/shooting work on the side, as it's grown into a big passion of mine.
You can shop what you see here + we carry here.
Seriously though... try Coco Rose- it'll change your life!
