    A Trip to Upstate New York with MacKenzie-Childs

    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.

    How To Get Dressed Faster – Ironing Hack

    How many times have you been in a hurry, pulled something out of your closet and put it back because it was a big, wrinkled mess? (ahem, raises hand) Because let’s be honest, the process of ironing is a giant time suck. In fact, I despise ironing, and I haven’t actually used an iron in probably over three years! I’m spilling on a big time and travel hack that enables me to get dressed faster – my hand-held garment steamer.

    If you haven’t tried a steaming vs. ironing yet, you’ll want to keep reading for the details on my Rowenta Steam ‘N Press that’s only $30 at Target!

    Movie Night Inspiration | Friday Favorites

    Most Friday nights you can count on these two things happening: there will be wine in my hand and a Lifetime movie on the television. But since it’s Oscar weekend, I thought maybe I’d step it up a notch and put together an actual movie night spread. So, I teamed up with Toffifay to put my own spin on movie night inspiration for today’s Friday Favorites’ post! This was so fun because not only did I completely surprise myself with how well it came together, but now I’m thinking that I should do this sort of thing more often!

    It literally took me no time at all to whip up everything you’ll see in today’s photos, and I’ve got some tips for how you can pull it off in your own home too. (Even if you don’t have a little helper like Odie.) Key Takeaway: I have basically learned that everyone’s weekend plans should include chocolate, wine and popcorn…

    Last Day For Standard Shipping + Last-Minute Holiday Gift Ideas!

    Down to the wire on completing your holiday shopping? I’ve rounded up some last-minute holiday gift ideas in today’s post with ADORE Jewelry! From beauty essentials to sparkly jewels, you’ll find all of the perfect finishing touches for Christmas. And I know first-hand they’re perfect because I took one look at my own vanity to identify my must-have, favorite products! Here are a few more foolproof gift ideas to finish off this year’s gift list!

    If you’re shopping for the Fashionista, go for small items with big sparkle. (Trying to pick out clothing for someone else can always be a hit or miss!) I love mixing metals with my jewelry, so I suggest picking out a few different bracelets to mix and match together. I have been wearing these ADORE bracelets everywhere the past few weeks since they arrived. A rose gold and gold combination is one of my favorites to wear, and I have had so much fun mixing the set in today’s post. As a part of the Swarovski family, ADORE uses that same timeless and luxe legacy with on-trend pieces. I also ordered this coil ring a size up to wear on my thumb for an edgy piece!
