Hi! I’m Taryn Fiol Williford, a lifestyle blogger and creative director living in Atlanta. Restaurants are my happy place. I prefer drinks with bubbles. I appreciate the labor of finding a perfect reaction gif. I believe a season finale is a perfectly good reason to take off work and throw a party.

I spend my days working as a creative professional crafting together identity, visuals, voice and strategy to tell a brand’s story. On the side, I write for publications like Apartment Therapy about home and life. And when the mood strikes, I’m here updating this site with recipes to impress your friends, my favorite finds from style and pop culture and personal stories about developing a career that feels like an extension of who you are.

I want to inspire inventive entertaining, thoughtful gifting, mindful work and insatiable curiosity. My mission is to share stories and ideas that help creative people make their mark. Grab a beer and lets get to know each other.
