hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

It’s Fall! Yay! Well, ok, we might still be experiencing 80 degree weather, but Monica and I are in total Fall project mode. We both have lists miles long of stuff we want to accomplish, and things we want to do during this, our favorite season ever. There’s just something about getting back into a regular groove that makes us so much more productive. We’re already planning our usual Tuesday evening blog nights (if you ever want to reach both of us at once, that’s the perfect time!), and have some awesome tutorials, fun room designs, and, of course, lots of seasonal decorating to share with you!

If you’re new around here, you’ll quickly realize that we looooooooove Fall. In fact, last year, we dedicated a whole week to Autumn goodness. You’ll definitely want to check out some of our fav Fall finds from last year, like…
Oh yummmmmm. I can’t wait to break these things out at our first Eagles football party. I don’t know about you, but the only reason I watch every game is for the food. Oh yes, I said it.
Fall Mantle Inspiration
This is my Fall faux-mantel from last year and I absolutely loved it, but I’ll be mixing it up this year since my kitchen looks totally different.

Fall Anti- Wreath

Monica is a wreath-hater, and she’s not afraid to admit it. Her solution for her front door was totally awesome, and I daresay it’ll make you a hater of traditional wreaths, too.





With the start of the Fall blogging season, we’re happy to announce that we’re accepting new sponsors! We have a few openings that we would love to fill, so if you have a business that you think we’ll love and can help you promote, send us an email at! Seriously, what better way to sell your stuff than to have two loud, passionate, crazy women on your side?! For all the nitty-gritty info about our sponsorship opportunities, click here.


Come on board with EC2- we’ll take good care of you! 😉




We can’t wait to share with you all that we’ve been doing in our homes (anybody ready for a Monica patio update?!), so why don’t you throw on a pair of jeans and a comfy sweatshirt and cozy on up with us. Let the Fall fun begin!

    Mmmm these dumplings look divine! Have been watching my calories lately, but fortunately I have an office full of guinea pigs I can make these and test them out on! 😉 Thanks for sharing!
