Great Reads and Fabulous Finds

Happy Saturday!

Hey guys – thanks for bearing with us during a less active week here. As you may have heard, Houston got hit with an unusual snow and ice storm. And the brutally cold temps and ice lingered for days. That never happens here! So that hindered us somewhat in shooting some content.

But the good news is we capitalized on the time once the weather warmed up. We have so much creative colorful content coming your way! We are excited about it, and we hope you enjoy all the upcoming topics, too.

I’ll tease you with what’s coming Monday… think an unconventional, irreverent, cute, fun Valentine’s party idea for your girlfriends!

Now, onto our favorite things from around the internet this week – and there is so much good stuff for you to peruse!

Around the Internet

I’ve always struggled with my hair — thick, takes forever to dry / style, I’m not that good at it, etc. So I can relate to Grace’s comments about planning life around blowouts! Ha. Hmmm maybe I should try this.

Did you see that Blair launched a new daily feature called Notepad on her website?

Business trends to follow for a successful 2018.

All the colors and textures of this one-piece swimsuit!

I don’t know anything about this luggage company, but it sure looks chic!

You know we love a good outfit and wall match. But this project takes matching to a whole new level!

Algorithm, algorithm, algorithm. It’s a constant “water cooler” topic when it comes to influencers and Instagram these days. Well, it’s changed again. And you’ll probably like it even less. Why? Well, get this… When you post a new Instagram, it only gets shown to about ten percent of your following! Depending on how they react, it may or may not get shown to a wider group! Read more here.

Side note: The more you interact with an account, the more you’ll see that accounts content. And I’m not just baiting you for more likes and comments. It’s true… So, if you are missing my posts, go like a bunch of them, and then you’ll start seeing them more again.

Did you know that our very own Julie started a podcast? Hashtag No Filter is both entertaining and educational as Julie pulls back the veil on various topics. Most importantly, Julie will have you laughing as you listen!

Merritt looks so chic in this outfit.

I’ve been a longtime fan of Dannijo jewelry. In fact, you’ll still find me wearing pieces I bought five years ago. Good news – they brought back those classic best sellers, like this cuff you all always ask about.

As a gummy bear lover, this revelation has me questioning everything.

Blush bag beauty.

Color + cozy cashmere.

Back in the day, did you watch Samantha Brown on the Travel Channel like I did? Well, she has a new show and it starts in Houston in front of a mural!

These donuts look absolutely delicious.

I am obsessed with the colorful spring collection from Kendra Scott!

So much color for the kiddos! Excuse me while I add it all to Elle’s closet.

How fabulous is this jacket? And it’s on sale!

You had us at rainbow aviators.

Loving the bold yellow-saffron color of this tee.

To be honest, I was kind of over the Cult Gaia ark bag trend. I purchased two (a white one and the original bamboo one), but then they proliferated and were seen on every single blogger ever. But my love for Cult Gaia has been renewed with their new fresh designs. Very retro. See more here, here, here, and here.

Such a sweet ruffle cuff top.

This shaggy jacket looks so warm and cozy!
