Anyone knows how the PREMIERE on YT works? I’ve read that I can watch the premiere vide live with you and we can have a live discussion. So I’ll be testing it tomorrow and will be there (where? I guess on youtube 😅 but in any case I’ll update you on IG stories also) LIVE, TOMORROW, 9 AM. The Ep 2 is about my no 1 trick to improve quality of my life, one thing that boosts my creativity, imagination, joy and true passion for life. Also what has a daily visual experience and abstraction to do with quality of life? If you want to watch it with me and have a live chat meet me tomorrow on YT at 9 AM :) xoxo 😘
I often get (non-creepy) requests to see more of my house (after all, she’s one of the leading ladies in many of my videos). .
Here's a little glimpse of what we call the parlor — and by "we," I mean fancy people at the turn of the last century, so we're just going with it. 😉
Truth moment: One of the reasons we bought this house is for the parlor. The light, the scale, the architecture – it makes me 0% mad. And I may or may not – but definitely did – have a Pinterest board going for this room before we even put an offer on the house. I'm shameless in my enthusiasm. 💁♀️
P.S. My house has its own Instagram account: @sparkmanor
a full recap of saturday’s coney island beach clean up is now up on my blog! (link in bio) 🙌🏼 I talk about how this all started and the strangers we met on the beach while we were picking stuff up. I also included a video I filmed of the day (ICYMI on my stories earlier this week) - and of course more photos from the day! ♻️🎡🌅🗑🌎🎉
I love to cry at weddings. 🦖
Soooooo I went treasure hunting... and let’s just say I came back with three full loads of stuff -most of it smalls 😳 get ready for a crazy Sunday night 🍓

I am still processing through everything I experienced after spending a week in the Canadian woods. One of my favorite moments from the @imperfectbosses
retreat was when I sat down with a dozen women to talk about our dream lifestyle. At one point, a strong single momma burst into tears and shared she's so proud of the life she's built for herself and her kids that she doesn't want to think about moving toward another lifestyle. We all joined her by joyfully declaring what we currently love about our life and how far we've come. In a culture of "more, bigger, better", it's easy to forget how many blessings we already have in our hands. Stewardship is important, and we need it to go hand-in-hand with contentment. I'm thankful for quiet moments like these that reorient my soul. Have you had any moments like this recently? 💜
An a1c measures the last 2-3 months worth of someone’s blood sugars. It can range from about 5 (amazing, great control, a general blood sugar of about 100) to 14 (“uncontrolled”, or an average blood sugar of about 350). A year or so ago mine was over 10 (and has been as high as 13 in the past). The honest truth of it is, sometimes you just need a “break” and your control isn’t as good. But this last year I’ve been dedicated to tightening my control. In December I was 9 something. In May I was 7.7 (the lowest id been since before my wedding in 2013!). And in October ... 6.5. The lowest (best controlled) I’ve been since diagnosis in 2010. I know some people don’t like to share their a1c and I know an a1c isn’t a “tell all”... but I’m sharing because I’m fucking PROUD of the work I’ve put in this year. 🖤 So lets celebrate, use the code a1c65 for 20% off anything on cricketlanestudio.com!
I’ll be running around with this face today (combination of excited & “here goes!”) as we prep for my sister’s wedding! I’m doing my own makeup for the day, & you can see and shop the products I’ll be using at the link in my profile. The fall eye palette and lipsticks are some of the best I’ve ever owned. They’re classic, elegant, and natural, and will last for years. #grwmmakeup #fallbeauty
Okay, how seriously cute are these giant colorful bat balloons?! 🦇🌈🦇🌈 I’m sharing how to make them for your Halloween celebrations over on the blog. 📸 by @melaniewrightphotography
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light
Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one
Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art
High King of Heaven, my victory won
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heav’n’s Sun
Heart of my own heart, whate’er befall
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all ✨

I can barely drink on a Friday and get up on Saturday 🤦🏼♀️
If you didn’t know, one of my greatest forever loves is pattern. Not just designing them (but I do!) or wearing them (but I do!) but on all things, like all 3 plants I painted in this “hipster plant” series (as I’ve been calling them in my head 😬🌿). This final plant is called a Dieffenbachia Camille, and it has the most beautiful patterns on it’s leaves.

NEVER can I wear too much color. never ever. i feel happy, energized, free & fierce when i'm as colorful as i want to be.⠀
the other day an older lady cycled past me. yup. she was faster than i was. i like to think they have an electric bike, but fact is, i'm just a slow biker 😂 . ⠀
but she past me, looked at me and said "wow, that is just a beautiful happy explosion of color" and she raced past me with a happy smile.⠀
and it made me feel so good. YES. i am that colorful girl. YES some people think it's too much. and that is totally fine, because I FEEL GOOD wearing ALLLL the colors 😄 what is your super power?! ❤️.

Marquees are always oh so charming no matter how old they are. I love running into these since there aren’t a lot anymore!😍
Good Thursday Morning from the eye candy 🍬studio. I’m a busy bee working on a new DIY YouTube tutorial which I’ll share with you tomorrow. Two hints on what it’s about...cake and bunnies! 🎂🐇 It’s a sweet holiday project I can’t wait to share.

Ahhh sooo… I wasn’t going to officially say anything until next week but…😶
The podcast got approved earlier than expected 😮⠀
If you’re interested: thecrownfox.com/effortlesspodcast 👈🏻⠀
There’s a very long origin story, but I’ll skip to the part that matters. I don’t think my business story so far is *EPIC* or *AMAZING* or anything that would get you to click on an Facebook Ad. But it’s REAL, it’s normal, it’s approachable, and it’s relatable. 😝⠀
And I really don’t think there’s enough of THAT out there. 🤷🏻♀️⠀
The idea started as this desire to share with you details about my business - now - the one that I love working on and in, the one that excites me (and scares me), that pays me really well, and that lets me work with amazing people. But I realized if I just shared that I’d be glossing over every moment that went into getting here.⠀
And by here I mean, I still have a long journey - but I’m at this point ‘successful’ by any business standards.⠀
So I started working backwards and realizing that along my journey there’s been these huge pivotal shifts and moments of complete clarity and AH DUH… and it almost worked out like this tidy little path that I could explain somewhat easily. 🙋🏻♀️ And maybe in hearing all the ups, downs, highs, lows, tears, laughs, and SHIT in between I could help someone, or speak to someone, or connect with someone that’s in it too. 🤗 ⠀
That’s season 1. Honestly, I have no idea what season 2 or 3 or so on will be. But I knew I wanted to share what I’ve got so far and I hope you love it (and don’t mind some awkward laughs + personal details).⠀

Getting the one thing I can’t resist: Dippin Dots 🍦 on St George Street! This street in #StAugustine
is like stepping back in time - literally since the oldest wooden school in America is here, and that makes sense since this is the oldest city in America from when Ponce de Leon found it searching for the Fountain of Youth 🌟 Had a blast doing SUP again with @anastasiawatersports
and floating in a salt pod at @saltspasaintaugustine
which I can’t wait to share about! #loveFL @visitflorida @floridashistoriccoast #ad
