Exciting news! You can now find me each month in my local San Diego Magazine sharing favorite trends for decorating, entertaining and organizing. I was thrilled to be asked to contribute as a guest writer for their At Home section after the magazine found me through this blog.
Guess what the first issue up was? The SEX issue.

It’s a neat experience to be a part of the publication.
