I’m Danielle: a travel junkie, compulsive organizer, and photographer on a mission. I have a weird obsession with cats, anything made from paper, and foreign lands. The core of all of my work aims to answer one simple question: How can we leave this world better than we found it?

As the second daughter of Croatians coming to America with nothing but $300 in their pockets, I learned how to do a great deal of things myself and appreciate what we have, rather than what we can obtain. My dad can do just about anything he sets his mind to, and my equally talented mother has a heart of gold. I honestly believe that my DIY-centric upbringing led to the development of many hidden talents, and spending time with my kind-hearted mother conditioned me to be much more empathetic and compassionate toward others.

On this blog I share my photography tips, fashion advice, organization tactics, and notes about my travels and self-care. The goal here is to inspire you to break out of your comfort zone and go somewhere new, even if it seems scary.


For the other creatives out there, I have a secondary blog for my brand Revelry Ink which provides craft education, product reviews, and project ideas aimed to inspire people to make stuff. Some of the fashion related posts on this blog may re-direct you to that blog if you wish to learn how the item is made.

Inspired by my sister’s dedication to animal welfare, I created Revelry Ink. We are the craft education and paper company which provides a wide range of handmade products for life’s celebrations and enjoyment. Our intent is essentially to “create happiness” and share it with the world… which is why it is so important to also give back to our community. A percentage of all card purchases made at RevelryInk.com are collected throughout the year and annually donated to local animal charities that need it most. Learn more about our company here.
