There are moments in your life that make you realize that time is a flat circle (True Detective reference). And for me one of those moments of clarity and appreciation of life’s little coincidences was on my recent trip to upstate New York. When I was younger, I would travel with my grandparents to upstate New York during the summer. It was the first place I tried my hand at ceramics as I fired my little pieces in my cousin Sarah’s kiln. And 20 years later, I was back in the same area with one of the most whimsical ceramics brands, MacKenzie-Childs! I’m sharing details on my trip to Camp Courtly Check in today’s full post.
Engaging with my readers and audience is by far one of the most rewarding parts of starting this blog! So when BumbleBFF reached out and challenged me to connect in-person with new people in my city, I was SO excited to begin planning an intimate coffee date. Plus working from home every day can have me missing out on social interaction! You see, BumbleBFF is all about making connections with potential friends or new BFFs in your area. It’s like the Bumble dating app – but for finding besties instead!
I’m recapping my BumbleBFF meet up and introducing my beautiful coffee dates in today’s full post!
This week I’ll be heading back to college! (Well not quite.) I’ll be visiting with the ladies of Delta Zeta and Alpha Phi during LSU’s Rush Workshop as they prepare to welcome potential new members and expand their sisterhoods! I can remember those days of my own life vividly – I mean how can one forget being in a house with 200 other girls bouncing, clapping and singing for two weeks straight? Oddly enough, those are some of my favorite memories/stories from the sorority now!
After I got emails from both chapters inviting me in, I started thinking about my own college years and what I’d tell myself if I could. I quizzed Jordan too. And it turns out that my advice to my college self is also advice I’d give my present and future self. Check it out in today’s full post!
As you might have seen, Jenn from Haute Off the Rack and I went to Houston recently for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. (No Nordstroms in Louisiana y’all!) Outside of all of the shopping we did, we ate a ton of amazing food as we discovered new restaurants. So, I thought it would be fun to put together a little Houston trip recap. I’m sharing where we stayed and each of the delicious meals – as well as where to shop and satisfy your sweet tooth!
Today, I’m sharing a post that I’ve been wanting to write for a long time! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE getting lost in Sephora for hours, but I don’t splurge on every single item in my beauty regimen. Over the past few years, I’ve stumbled across some absolute favorites right in my drugstore or grocery aisle. These are great options when you’re in a pinch while traveling or trying to stay on your monthly budget. Check out my favorite drugstore beauty products in today’s full post!
