Late Night Editing

Call me crazy, but I crave a nice late night video edit. Sometimes I feel like my creative juices are at an all time high right around midnight! Brad thinks I'm insane when I'm crawling into bed at 3am, ha! Good thing I married such a patient guy. ;) But I must say... After working so hard on an edit, it feels so good to upload the video and find it a home! The home for all my videos is Vimeo.

I have been apart of Vimeo for the past 5 years, and it is so inspiring to me. I love simply browsing around, watching different videos and gather inspiration! It's almost overwhelming how many brilliant people upload their work there. I feel like Vimeo really puts a lot of emphasis on the art and the artists behind video, and I'm so happy there is a platform that does that! It's strongly suggested to only upload videos that are your work! It's not a platform that has 'OFFICIAL VIDEO' written in the title because so many replicas have been uploaded of the same video. It's a pretty rad community, because you're able to comment and connect with the actual artist behind the video. 

I upgraded to a Vimeo Plus account a few years ago, and it has been such a positive experience.  I love how I can embed my videos so easily and how the whole interface is so beautiful. The process of uploading not only one video, but multiple videos has been so quick, effortless and simple! I think everyone deserves this, so I'm hooking you guys up.

^^Here is one of my first videos I uploaded to Vimeo! Where has the time gone!?^^

Thank you Vimeo for sponsoring this post. While this was a sponsored opportunity from Vimeo, all content and opinions expressed here are my own.



Lucy and I both got a mean case of the stomach flu this week, so it felt SO NICE to get out and see some sunshine! Low-key weekends are my favorite.. Baby wearing, hand holding, and sink baths ;)

Little Toy Car

This collaboration was straight dangerous because we fell in LOVE with this car. I guess it was also dangerous because I was learning how to drive manual while filming too, ha! A few choice words almost came out of my mouth while holding up traffic. I felt like a bad ace jelly bean in this car, haha it has a mini Ferrari engine so its pretty sporty sounding. Thanks Ken Garff for letting us borrow your little beauty!

Pssst! If you follow @fiatofslc and mention this post when you go in, you get a free oil change on whatever car you drive! :)

Bona-Fide: Genuine, Real

Everyday I scroll my Instagram, Twitter, & Bloglovin' feeds, and I find myself smacked in the face with these constant numbers. So-and-so has 597K followers, getting 27,000 likes per picture, and 800 comments. My first initial thoughts are, "Wow that's impressive, they must be pretty cool." - I'm sure that they are pretty cool, but I believe that the numbers are not what make a person "cool". At the end of the day, what do these numbers really matter?" The truth is that they don't matter at all, they are just numbers. Numbers don't define how insanely cool you are, & I think that realization is insanely cool. 
Let's join together, no matter how many 'numbers' we have, & try to be a little more Bona-Fide or 'insanely cool'. Compliment a stranger, mail a thoughtful note, & reach out to an old friend! THAT is what makes you insanely cool.
Hop over to the BonaFide to shop this print! 


Ever since I can remember, I've been absolutely petrified of water. I was always the girl sitting in the shallow end of the pool, WITH floaties on! Hahah! Over the years I've gotten a lot better... Like boating with friend etc, but I have always sworn that I would NEVER board a cruise ship. Well, I am very proud to say that I just conquered my first 7 day cruise! I'm feeling on top of the world, like Bob Wiley right now: "I'm sailing! I'm sailing!"

Alt Summit: Tokyo Dream

This was my first time co-hosting a mini party at Alt Summit and it was exhausstinggg! I have a new appreciation for event planners now. It was fun to try something new, and gain a closer friendship with Ginger, Jane, and Ashley. I couldn't have been paired with cooler, more down to earth girls. Group texting costume ideas at 2am, to the whole piping of the room collapsing in the day before the party (yes, that really happened and I almost took a pole to the face), it was an insane adventure. The party really came together, and I think everyone enjoyed themselves! I laughed my head off when Trevor (my brother) took a turn in the panda costume, his dance moves were cracking everyone up - I really think he was born to be some sort of mascot. Hahah!

The theme of this party stemmed from my recent obsession with Tokyo, and the guys behind Hive were cool enough to trust us with our ideas! It turned out even better than I had imagined, I just wish that I would have had a voice! I'm not kidding when I say that I had run myself dry -- It was kinda awkward to host and not be able to talk much -- hahah! I can only hope that my dance moves made up for it. Thanks Hive for having us host an unforgettable party for your Kickstarter launch!
