my new wrinkle fighting routine

This post was done in collaboration with Olay. All thoughts and ideas are my own. Thank you for supporting our sponsors.

I can’t even keep up with how I’ve switched this house around since the baby. Since the nursery reveal, I’ve already rearranged her room a couple times, switched up the wallpaper, and now… we moved Clover into the master bedroom, giving her the whole room, and then moved our bed into the family/playroom turned nursery now turned master bedroom! Another change around here with all this lack of sleep is the wrinkles. I didn’t know two kids came with two sets of bags under my eyes and 2x the wrinkles! So, I went in search of a moisturizing product to help me out. Thankfully Olay reached out and gave me some of their product to try out, and I’m sold.

I’ve said before how I’m pretty awful at self-care and keeping up with any kind of beauty routine, but I’ve found one way to combat the new wrinkles with Olay Whips and the key was putting it on my nightstand! I’m all about multi-tasking so my entire bedtime routine is done while I shower. I even brush my teeth while I let my conditioner sit in my hair. Then once in bed all I have to do is reach for the Olay and I’m off to dreamland. With my showers as part of my bedtime routine, most mornings go right from the minute I blink my eyes open. Some days I don’t even get a chance to look in the mirror, so by keeping it right next to my phone where, TBH I reach for first thing, it’s become part of my routine to dab on some moisturizer to start the day with a fresh face and I’ve been loving the lightweight feel of ! Between nursing Clover and having the furnace running, these cooler months my skin was dying for the hydration it gives.

And for the days where I have client meetings or photo shoots and I put makeup on (which I keep in my car to do while I’m on my way (totally not recommended) the Regenerist Whip plays double duty as well. It’s a moisturizer and a primer so my makeup goes on smooth and lasts longer than it used to in my pre-Olay-Whips life.

Yes, I dream of having slow mornings again where I can leisurely get up and have some time for myself, drink my tea without someone needing something from me RIGHT NOW, getting a toddler ready for preschool or answering as many emails as I can before Clover has to go down for another nap or feed (I know that day will come again but for now I’m in the thick of it and I’m sure I wouldn’t change it if I could), so products like that make me feel like I’m doing something indulgent for myself in just a few moments are a Godsend.

You can try this new product out yourself with a free sample !

Now if only I could find a product that would buy me a new house, so I can have an actual bedroom!

Mandy Moore Guest Room Peek

Last week I shared the design of one of the guest rooms in the Mandy Moore residential project and today I am stoked to give you a sneak peek into the almost finished space! I teamed up with to give Mandy a guest room that ticks all the luxurious boxes of a boutique hotel without breaking the bank on the bedding.

Most of the rooms I design have a mix of high and low and this room is no exception, although the balance here weighs much more on the high end, we still managed to utilize a couple big box items as well.

high/low bedroom: artful modern

I’m back with another high/low room design. This is quickly becoming my favorite kind of post to put together. Today I tackled the bedroom with a high-end dream version and a lower priced version that doesn’t scrimp on style. I’m calling it “artful modern” which I’ve found myself describing my aesthetic more and more lately. I’m drawn to furniture pieces and accessories that are sculptural looking like these sconces, side tables, and vases and while I combine a few different styles they all share a restrained modern quality.

This room all started with the bed. I’ve been dying to use this gorgeous bed in a clients house so hopefully we will see something like this room in real life soon, but in the meantime it sure is pretty to look at digitally as well.

I also love this (which you may recognize from the master bedroom I did in Max & Margaux’s home) which is a great alternative option to the first bed if, like me, you are loving the combination of the ivory upholstery and wood frame. Other items that are a total high-style steal are the !.. and they have a marble top which I think ups the style quotient even more. Also, I’d be crazy if I didn’t mention that  (which I’ve already used twice. You will see it in the Trullbrook residence for one!). If you haven’t already drooled over all the new pieces in their I would probably get to it!

diy woven wall hanging

I updated a few things in our master bedroom recently since Archie thought it was a fun game to try and rip the black and white print we had above the bed off the wall. He finally succeeded and we were without anything up there for a while but then I got this idea, a tasseled, woven, wall art of an idea. You may have caught a few shots of it on and I got a lot of inquiries about it, so today I’m sharing how I made it!

DIY WOVEN WALL HANGING

Supplies Needed:
– I used as the base
– (I used 12 rolls)
– A small screwdriver (that is what I used but a crochet hook or an oversize needle would be way easier, I am always just grabbing what I have in mind and making things up as I go. Hindsight is a wonderful thing).
– A few small finish nails

Step 1: Make the tassels. SO MANY TASSELS (for tassel making instructions see this DIY post here). I made these ones longer, using a 9″ square to wrap the twine around, but the process is the same.

Step 2: Lay the rug out on the floor and draw yourself some guidelines with a pencil to follow.

Step 3: Start from the bottom and lay out the first line of tassels where you’d like to attache them.

Step 4: Using a screwdriver (or crochet hook etc) poke the loose ends of the top of the tassel through the rug, spacing them about 1/5″ apart.

Step 5: Move your hands to the underside of the rug and knot the two pieces of twine together, securing the tassel to the rug.

Step 6: Work your way up the rug making sure to stagger the tassels so they don’t line up and it looks a little random.

Step 7: Using 4 or 5 finish nails secure the rug to the wall but hammering a nail right through the run and into the wall.

And that is it! With all the twine I had to buy, this wasn’t an inexpensive DIY but it is exactly what I had in mind and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I have to say, making that many tassels was quite therapeutic and attaching them was oddly extremely satisfying. Soooo…who wants one?!
