ROADTRIPPING WITH THE FRILLY

Just a few weeks ago, before all of the international travel, I had some time in my home state. California is pretty much the ultimate road tripping state, with so much to see just a few hours from home. So Eric and I packed up our van with plenty of looks by The Frilly, and started driving north.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH A LASH LIFT




Some of you may have seen me share this on Instagram, but recently, I've started going to Iris+West to have a new treatment done - a Lash Lift. Now you may be asking, just what in the world is a lash lift? So I'm here today to explain it all, share some before/after pics, and tell you why I'm throwing out my lash curler and making the switch.

THE TRAVEL ESSENTIAL YOU'RE PROBABLY FORGETTING



I travel a fair amount for my lifestyle - I think at last count I've been on over a dozen flights this year with no sign of slowing down. I love traveling, seeing new places, and taking plenty of pictures and videos along the way. But it can come with its fair share of concerns, especially when flying is involved. Airplanes are notoriously drying and while I've always been sure to pack plenty of lotions, face masks, and mists for my skin, there was one area I was really neglecting - my eyes - which is why I am so happy to be working with Bausch + Lomb this year.

ENGLISH HOLIDAY PHOTO DIARY



Late last year, Eric and I embarked on a large road trip across the UK. We started in London, drove through the Cotswolds, to Liverpool, through the Lakes District, and up to Scotland before making our way back down. You can read more about that journey here and here. It was an amazing (and at times quite rainy) trip, and we fell completely in love with the English countryside when we passed through and knew we had to come back to experience it in a different season. So to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary and my birthday, we packed our bags and headed off.

AN LA DATE WITH PELLEGRINO

By Courtney Halverson in partnership with Bon App├ętit
Sponsored by S.PELLEGRINO ® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water

With all of my recent travel stories, I realized that I have completely been neglecting my hometown, Los Angeles. Every time I travel, I long for that moment of coming home, and whenever I land in L.A. I realize how thankful I am to live in this wonderful and busy city. It can feel crowded at times (too crowded in the summer!), but I love finding ways to steal little moments of quiet and make them special. My days are made up of driving around and running all over L.A., but making the time for something unique and creating a really special moment is what it’s all about.

IN MY JEWELRY BOX



I used to say that I just wasn't that into jewelry. I would wear necklaces occasionally, and aside from my wedding rings, I really didn't think that much about rings at all. But in the last year, I've started to develop a real taste for jewelry - even prompting me to get my first jewelry box to house it all in. I never thought I'd be one to turn into a magpie, but lately I'm finding myself drawn to all kinds of baubles and rings. Read on to see my current collection.
