Pinning Lately: Hints of Summer

Having to come up with fresh content for 2 blogs is definitely proving to be a challenge, but my creative spark is always fueled by those I follow on Pinterest and Dribbble. This moodboard is a reflection of my yearning for summer days– filled with sunshine and all the colors that come with warmer weather. We’re in the midst of an endless winter here in Minny, and are still getting snowed on… in the middle of April. I’m praying that It will all be over soon and very soon!

Hope you had a great weekend!



Re-design Moodboard: Cream + Black

Hi there!

Hope you had a great weekend! I’ve been fully submersing myself into all things Spitfiregirl, which hasn’t left a whole lot of free time for my first love– this here blog. I have, however, made the decision to switch from blogger to WordPress.  I’m taking careful thought as to how I want the new design to be…. understated, clean, and elegant; much like this little moodboard! Stay tuned for the re-launch, and bare with me and my sporadic posting :)

Life Lately: Where did March go?


Spring break came and went all too fast. I was lucky enough to soak up as much of the Arizona sun as humanly possible in 3 short days, and made a necessary pit stop to In-N-Out. Why on earth hasn’t the Midwest discovered this southern delicacy? 

I fell in love with AZ, and can’t wait to go back and hike those beautiful mountains! After leaving all too soon, I switched climates for the last Snocross race of the season. I cannot believe how fast this season flew by. I always get a little pit in my stomach when the end draws near, because I truly love it so much. I’m so proud of my brother and all that he accomplished this season, and can’t wait until we get to do it all again Thanksgiving weekend!
Now it’s time to board the struggle bus and get back in the swing of school. Sometimes I wonder how I’ll ever make it to graduation next December!

Currently Loving: DVF loves ROXY

Howdy there! What a crazy week it has been. My first week at Spitfiregirl was a success, and I can already tell that this experience is going to be such a great opportunity to learn and grow in my passions. My first post on the blog should be up today!

I am officially on my last Spring Break… which is a little crazy to think about. I’m jetting off to Arizona for a mini vacation with one of my good friends, and am looking forward to doing nothing but lying in the sun and catching up on some reading!

With sunshine on my mind, I was so excited to see the launch of DVF loves Roxy yesterday. If I could dream up a collaboration between two brands, it would be these two. Roxy’s brand signifies so many qualities that I  love. I will always be a surfer girl at heart, even if I’m a thousand miles from the closest ocean :)  Diane Von Furstenberg is a classic designer that has me swooning over everything from dresses, to bags and shoes.

I would do crazy things to get my hands on that surf board! You can view the whole collection here.

Have a wonderful weekend!


Exciting Things.

I’m so ecstatic to announce that I finally found an internship that fits me to a “T.” I’m officially joining team Spitfiregirl Design as an editorial intern! *Cue happy Dance*

Heidi and her talented team are based in San Francisco–  so I will be working remotely from coffee shops here in Minny, mostly on the growth and expansion of the Spitfiregirl blog! I get to combine my love of writing and design, and know that this is a wonderful opportunity to gain experience.

Stay tuned over the next few months to see some of the exciting things we’ll be working on!

God is faithful!
