about A Modern Commonplace Book

Hello! My name is Ginny.

Welcome to my little collection of awesome things that make my heart happy. I don’t have the perfect life with the perfect wardrobe and perfect kitchen. I just love looking for new ideas that fit every lifestyle – from favorite beauty products to kitchen shortcuts.

I love to research – and rarely buy something without thoroughly scouring the internet, writing out Lorelai-esque pro/con lists, discussing it in-depth with friends, and maybe adding a ton of stuff to my Amazon Shopping List. And then, I tell the whole world. By the whole world, I mean you!


I love homemade and simple. I love designer things at consignment prices. I love really cool tips, frozen mint oreos, everything Fast and Furious, free samples from Ulta, this recipe for the easiest dinner prep ever, homemade body scrubs, Kym Douglas on Youtube, Yankee Candles…

(If you are wondering about the title of the blog – read about it here.)

This little blog is just a place for me to spill my ideas. I am not a pro. I just like things. Will you join me? Make sure to click on over here and introduce yourself!
