Happy (long) weekend! I am SO looking forward to the break. No concrete plans, but a little extra time with the family is always a good thing. Plus, I always need extra work catch-up time, especially after a busy morning of shooting today. You can catch the behind-the-scenes from today’s marathon photo shoots and I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagram stories and snapchat → glitterinclexi. Follow along!

Little Love Notes

A few little love notes to the things I loved most this week, including the most effing magical unicorn macarons you've ever seen. Click through for the details. | glitterinc.com | @glitterinc

All the fun plans we had for the weekend might get kicked to the curb by one very large snowstorm. Granted, it’s no Northeastern storm, but everyone in North Carolina is freaking out. Which means: this Miami girl is hunkering down. Hubby is at the hospital ALL weekend – safer to keep the docs there than driving around trying to get to and from the hospital I suppose. (Sad face.) Lucky for Scarlett and I, we have cozy pj’s, movies on the DVR, and I’m in a baking mood. Anyone think I can master these unicorn macarons? haha, yeah, me neither. Though I do have a bit of an obsession with macarons; Exhibit A: oreo macarons and Exhibit B: strawberry cheesecake macarons.

I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagramfacebooktwitter, and snapchat → glitterinclexi (lots of fun behind-the-scenes there) and I’m taking movie recommendations. (By the way, in case you’re stuck home all weekend, these are my favorite shows to binge-watch on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.)

How about you? Any exciting weekend plans?

With that, a few little love notes …

Dear city eats, these are the 21 best brunch spots in America, according to Thrillist. Did your fave make the cut?

Dear brain, here are 10 extremely precise words for emotions you didn’t even know you had.

Dear shoe love, five steps for helping your leather boots get through the winter.

Dear fellow grownups, on making new friends as an adult. (a.k.a., playdates are for mom dates.)

Happy Friday! It’s the end of the week, which means we’re just a little bit closer to the holidays (and our family vacation!)

Also, how is it December already? The house is decorated for the Holidays and the temperatures are dropping, but I still can’t wrap my head around the idea that the year is almost over.

By the way, that woven door hanging was a recent find from HomeGoods! Fun, right? And my dress is by Free People.

Other than that, Scarlett and I are laying low while we try to fight another cold. (Isn’t preschool fun?) Saturday we have big plans to take our family holiday photos … a bit late, as usual, but surprisingly early for us. People might actually get our holiday card before Christmas and Hanukkah this year!
