I’m highlighting an artist crush today who is full of talent and that I’ve talked about before. Chambers Austelle is a Charleston girl who first caught my eye thanks to her lady portrait series. I commissioned her to do a portrait for Coral House and couldn’t be happier with how the piece turned out. Now she has me coveting more pieces from her upcoming Birdcage Exhibition!

Lilly and I popped by the Beresford Studios gallery over the weekend for a sneak peek of some of the pieces. This pink lady below is Lilly’s most favorite (and I think maybe mine, too). Isn’t her face exquisite? I love her raised eyebrow.

I can’t wait to see the whole exhibit come together because these are just the beginning. There will be a mix of portraits and abstracts and prices begin at $150. The show opens this Friday night (February 10th) with a reception from 6 – 9 at Beresford Studios located at 20 Fulton Street downtown Charleston (right by Fulton Five). Maybe I’ll see some of you there? And you can follow along with Chambers on her instagram!

As a mother it’s important to me that I raise strong, confident children. So when Dove Hair asked Lilly and me to participate in the #LoveYourHair campaign, I jumped at the chance! I love the brand and what they’re doing to empower females.





Dove Hair found that 8 in 10 women feel pressure to wear their hair a certain way. For many, these pressures began at an early age. Dove Hair believes a positive role model can greatly impact a girl’s confidence. I want Lilly to know that her hair is unique and beautiful… just like she is!




So I remind her everyday :)





Lilly loves to wear her hair different ways – one braid, two braids, pig tails, pony tail… But her favorite way is to wear it down (I think she gets that from me).

Shoe Carnival provided me with product and compensation for this post.

The opinions I have shared about the products are my own. 


We are in the thick of holiday season over here and our schedules are full, in the best kind of way. Lilly and Fletcher’s favorite afternoon activity involves riding through the neighborhood belting out holiday songs and pointing out festive decorations. Such activity requires comfortable (and cool!) sneakers :) So we partnered up with Shoe Carnival for a holiday style remix.




Just call us the Converse Family (even Josh has a pair!). It’s what we each picked out when we visited our local Shoe Carnival! They’re the perfect sneaker for every day activities, plus they’re just a classic. Perfect for an updated casual holiday look.
