Behind the Blog: Quentin & Co

Our Behind the Blog series is kind of like reality TV for the blogging world. And I'm addicted. Especially to today's 'episode' of lovely, a.k.a. getting to know the pretty lady behind Quentin & Co, Shauna Dean. I want to bottle up her modern-feminine style and sprinkle it all over my own home, and, I've read our interview with her at least three...

Jess Lively Home Tour and Behind the Podcast

Jess Lively is the voice behind The Lively Show, a must listen to podcast if you're not already. She also happens to have an Austin abode that we are getting a first peek at.

Oh and did we mention that it's her birthday? Join me in sending lots of birthday love Jess's way and...

Behind the Blog: Hello Natural

Stephanie from Hello Natural is the kind of person I feel like I would click with immediately. Completely real and down to earth, her interview is like a lovely breath of fresh air. A believer in the power of pink, a good bath, and the power of delegating, there is a lot I feel like I could learn from this lovely lady (starting with how to menu plan each week - why is that so hard?!). SMP: Some words you live by? Quit thinking about...

Behind the Blog: McKenna Bleu

It never fails, whenever I start to put together a Behind the Blog feature, I instantly feel like I made a new best friend. And that is definitely the case with the gorgeous McKenna Bleu.

Behind the Blog with Julie Blanner

When I envisioned SMP Living, I saw a Modern Day Mrs. With or without a ring, the kind of girl that takes the time to learn the basics of planning a home and yet doesn't take herself too seriously. Who is delightfully flawed and yet the envy of all of her friends because she always has a cocktail and a great playlist a-waiting. Well, I'm pretty sure Julie Blanner has that role down to a science and today, she's opening the doors to all of...

Behind the Blog: Oh My Dear

Behind the Blog features are some of my faves. A chance to pick the brains of the talented ladies that make up this big world of blogging and Brittany Robertson is surely one to pay attention to.

Behind the Blog: The Haute Look

What were you doing at 19? Because I'm fairly certain I was watching old episodes of Sex and the City in my sweat pants with my girlfriends. I'm 100% certain I was not running an incredible fashion blog a la The Haute Looks! We recently caught up to talk shop with this sweet girl, and have the photos from Katie Parra to prove it! SMP: Tell us a little...

You know when you meet someone and you just know you're going to be lifelong friends? Well that's kind of how I feel about Mandy of Waiting on Martha.

Behind the Blog with Lark & Linen

Two years ago, Style Me Pretty had a baby. We named her Style Me Pretty Living and asked the lovely Jacquelyn Clark of Lark & Linen to help us grow her, raise her and help her to fly. Jacquelyn did just that, all while curating her own beautiful brand. And today, she's taking off her editor hat and sharing with the world just how she balances all of that lovely. With photos from...

Behind the Blog: La La Lovely

I'm convinced that Trina of La La Lovely is magical. I mean, it's the only answer! To run one of the best design blogs around, freelance as a writer, art director and beyond, all while raising a brood of children is no easy feat. But this girl does it with style, class and so. much. grace. With photos from Yazy Jo, we're going behind the blog, and...
