9 Cool Things My Friends Are Doing Right Now

When was the last time you celebrated an accomplishment? It feels like we are quick to set goals, work hard to achieve them, but then by the time that we do, our sights have been set even higher causing the achievement to feel a little anticlimactic. We are on to the next thing before we can even fully appreciate the work that it took to get to the place we are at. I’m not sure if the gals mentioned below are celebrating, but I thought I would take a moment to celebrate for them, because their accomplishments and what they are doing are no small feat! Keep reading below and if you’re not already following along on their journey, you’ll definitely want to!

I’m forever looking for an excuse to use my friend Sarah’s cabinet doors for Semihandmade. The color palette is so perfectly curated and the style of the doors can play to so many different interior styles.

I found THE BEST MASCARA EVER through my friend (and founder of Noonday Collection) Jessica Honegger’s email list which basically makes it the best email list ever and you should totally sign up, too.

I have boundless respect for Kelly and Paige of Midland Shop. Everything they do feels so thoughtfully done and their new Midland Shop Collection is no exception.

In the great wide world of blogging, Erin Loechner might just be the most thoughtful, altruistic, and genuine personality to grace the pages of the world wide web. True to form, she just launched a website, Other Goose, that serves as an incredible resource for moms of small children and those who are interested in home schooling.

Trove just launched their new line from Rwanda this season and the colors and prints are just the best! Plus you can shop knowing that you’re supporting dignified jobs for people in other countries and everything is ethically and thoughtfully made.

Speaking of Rwanda, Aaron just got back from his second trip and, as always, his photos took my breath away!

Jane Riley, one of my favorite designers on the planet and the designer of this site, recently launched a line of essential oil based body products for kids and babies called Wiley Body. The smell is totally addicting and I’ve been using it in my own bubble baths at night!

Lucy and Lester is a clothing line made by a mama friend here in Austin and I have loved watching it grow and expand. Also, those mustard bloomers paired with Ever’s substantial thighs might be the best summer 2019 duo ever.

I met Michaela through a Mommy and Me group in LA when Parker was a baby and was instantly drawn to how kind and genuine she was and is. Her new show The Village premieres on NBC on March 19th so head to your google calendar and be sure to set a reminder!
