The Weekend Haps – January 9


What. a. week. I know we’re all starting the year off under a heaviness, sadness, and perhaps anger that we didn’t expect given this week’s attack on our Capitol, but – per usual – my hope is to add some levity and beauty in the midst of what seems like constant chaos.

In case you missed it…

  • A very special SUBSCRIBERS ONLY post went out to those of you who are signed up for my newsletter. Click here (or scroll down) to get on the list and make sure you don’t miss a thing (I have some big announcements coming in the next couple of months, and subscribers will hear about them first!).

  • On Thursday I shared an oldie-but-a-goodie blog post from 2020 highlighting small steps you can take to make your home a haven. The events of this past week prompted me to share this again, as it seems to be something that’s only becoming more important.

Now for the haps…

  • Did you see Chris Loves Julia’s daughter’s bedroom reveal? As someone who lives in a house full of men, I can only DREAM of creating a princess bedroom as beautiful as this one day (parents of daughters: HIRE ME 😉 ).

  • Over Christmas break, we played around with different cocktail recipes. This Vanilla Chai Old Fashioned is going to stay in our regular rotation, me thinks.

  • My mama bought me two masks from True Botanicals for Christmas, and they’re incredible (just like everything else I’ve tried from them). This one you apply and wear overnight for a surge of moisture while you sleep, and this one is a really quick (but effective) resurfacing mask that burns so good.

  • This article was wildly helpful for me in processing Wednesday’s crazy events. I’ve been thankful for Dr. Moore’s leadership for years, but especially these past couple.

  • This candle. That’s all.

  • My first clothing purchase of 2021 felt like a risk (like what even is this store?), but I’ve worn it four times already, so I think we’d call it a win (it might be the coziest thing in my closet).
