5 Things I'm Loving

Happy Friday friends! It has been ages since I've had a post ready to go for Friday, but after coming back from Charleston I'm feeling very inspired! The week has flown by and it included a mini vacay day with my little babe on Tuesday - she had a 7 month check up and I spent the day with her, which was perfect after missing her all weekend! While our weekend is pretty open, I think we may start sleep training tonight, so send all the positive vibes my way! Thought I'd share a few things I'm loving at the moment! 
Head Scarf scrunchies || I first noticed these on Alyson Haley's blog and then immediately rushed to buy my own! I am so guilty of wearing my hair the same way more often than not, but now that hat weather is officially over, I can do more with my hair! I bought this one from Anthropologie but really like these from Free People as well! 
How I Built This Podcast || I've rediscovered my favorite Podcast on entrepreneurship recently and it's my favorite to listen to while taking Sophia on long walks while she sleeps. I can usually get through an entire episode and it's oddly therapeutic listening to people talk about building their successful companies. I just listened to the founder of Away and was blown away (pun not intended) by how the idea for the company came to her and also incredibly impressed with her career leading up to launching her own business! 
Postable || Gary just introduced me to the Postable app, where you can create beautiful cards with pictures that are sent via mail for you. The most incredible part is that these are completely customized, which make them so much more special that the usual Hallmark cards and for a fraction of the cost. While you're not able to add gift cards or anything to the card - it's still so special to see that this was made especially for you! 

Before Preset
 After Preset
Monika Hibbs Presets || I know that presets are all the rage right now on Instagram - making all the photos on your grid look the same. When Monika, who I've followed for years, came out with her own preset, I couldn't download it fast enough. Her photos are always light, crisp and airy. The integration of having lightroom on my phone and the guide was super easy to install and I use it whenever I want to give some photos a little something extra. 
I have a lot of new beauty favorites, but I'm going to be sharing those in a separate post. Hope you all have a great weekend!

  3. I want to try the scarf scrunchie but hadn't found one I liked yet. Anthro always has the answer! You were the one who introduced me to the How I Built This Podcast and I'm so thankful because it's a good one! Enjoy your weekend girlfriend!

  11. Right now I'm just using a filter on VSCO to make all of my photos the same. However, I do want to switch up the look to my feed & really need to hop onto lightroom for more options. I'll probably switch this summer.

  13. OK... I gotta find out how these presets work for a phone. I know how they work for editing on a computer, but never tried them on a mobile device. They look great though.
    I had no idea those scrunchies were made like that - SO CUTE!!!!

  14. That preset is beautiful! I don't ever use presets, but if I did, I do like that one because it doesn't alter the color too much!
