I’m interested in a ton of random stuff. Call it what you will – versatility, being a Jack of all trades (Jill, rather…), or just plain indecisiveness. But, I love it all (graphic design, health, web design, illustration, technology, exercise, thrifting, typography, interior design, psychology, puppies, etc). Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Always feel free to contact me.

Hello Brio and Creativity

Handlettering words in Moleskine - create - New years resolution words on hellobrio.com

When you’re an inspired individual who spends the majority of your time in an uncreative environment in your daily grind, it’s important to find the time to enjoy and explore that creative realm of your life.

For many of us, our passions lie in the ability to be creative or in spending time dreaming about art and design. I strongly believe that exercising this part of our brains is as important as being logical and grounded – both combined help us to be well-rounded and more fulfilled as people.

I believe that we should all make time to appreciate, create, and curate.

Take the time to appreciate art and design around you. The little things are as important as the bigger things. Reserve time to create — being able to do so is an essential human trait and the possibilities are endless. And even if you’re not an artist at heart, spend time to curate your personal collection of images and tastes. Doing so can help you sharpen your sense of style and eye for design.

Brio means vigor or vivacity of style. When plugged into a thesaurus, it means: animation, bounce, dash, energy, life, liveliness, spiritedness, verve, vigor, vim, vivacity, zest, zip.

Yes, I renamed it! You’ll still find some beauty product reviews but Hello Brio will be focused more on living life in a purposeful and meaningful way, and will talk about design, creativity and blogging.

Most of the time, I use my iPhone 4S. When I have time, I use my recently-purchased Canon Rebel T4i, but I’m still learning how to use it, so you’ll see more photos from this camera as this blog grows. Earlier photos are taken on my Canon Elph Powershot 300HS, which I reviewed here.

Absolutely! Visit my design services page to see what I do and how much it costs, and then fill out the questionnaire at the bottom if you want to work together.

HostGator.com. That is an affiliate link, but I wouldn’t recommend them if I didn’t love their service. HostGator’s customer service reps are awesome — they’ve helped me figure out everything from the most basic issue to the most complicated.

Sharing is caring.
