Sponsored: Serena & Lily Calistoga Bath Collection

August 1, 2017

throughout the years i have had a few constants when it comes to home goods, one of which is my addiction to gorgeous towels. when everything else in my tiny apartments in my 20’s didn’t seem to matter, my sheets and towels have always been on point. due to my dedication to bath linens i have humbly declared myself a bit of an expert when it comes to the very best. which is why i was completely on board when serena & lily asked to collaborate and review their calistoga bath collection.

i am thrilled to say that these are currently my very best bath towels.the calistoga towels are made from the finest turkish aegean cotton, remaining soft wash after wash. each towel is constructed using a unique weaving process that creates a larger surface material using long cotton loops for excellent absorbency.

in order to earn the title of the best bath towels, they also have to be very nice looking. such is the case with my set of calistoga towels. i chose them in the tranquil shade of marine and i couldn’t be happier.

i think i may have found my long-time favorites.

lucky you! valid for one week only, serena and lily is offering 15% percent off! Just use code “TOWELCRUSH15″…yay!

Sponsored: Our Sofa…The Capsule Cameron Sofa

January 25, 2017

good design should available to everyone.” capsule is a design studio in los angeles that believes in this philosophy wholeheartedly. i stumbled upon capsule accidentally on pinterest, which is where i found our beloved sofa. we chose the cameron sofa in white linen and have been over-the-moon thrilled with our choice. yes, the idea of “white linen” terrified me at first…but you know me, i decided to go with it anyway. the color is not a bright white, it has just enough oatmeal undertones to blend with our warmer environment. we have had a few spots that come from day to day living, the cameron spot-cleaned beautifully.

i do take my sofas seriously, as you know. which is why i am so happy with our capsule cameron sofa. also, the pieces at capsule are all at an incredibly reasonable price point, but look completely opposite.

i am so happy with our decision.

A Snowy Holiday Adventure Brought to you by Brookside Chocolate

December 21, 2016

When sponsorship involves chocolate, I am all in. That’s why when Brookside Chocolate sent me some product, I felt the need to taste it immediately…softened exotic fruit flavors surrounded by fantastic dark chocolate happens to be fantastic. The Brookside Crunchy Clusters are my favorite, and the favorites of the Mister and kiddos as well. In addition to fruit flavors and chocolate, the Brookside Crunchy Cluster also contain crispy multigrains. A chewy/crunchy dark chocolate experience that is just right….

To me, the best way to enjoy Brookside Chocolates has to involve the outdoors. This past week we had record snowfall in Oregon, so heading out with my family for a snowy holiday adventure definitely had to be a part of this experience. I mixed up some hot cocoa, we loaded the kids, dog, and sled in the car and headed out to one of the many Oregon trails for the best kind of snowy outing. This trip also ended up being the perfect opportunity to throw some Brookside Chocolates in my backpack and enjoy!

The French offspring are always up for an adventure, but typically end up losing interest sooner than we would like. This outing proved to be quite a bit different. When a snowy hike involves a yummy Brookside Chocolate finisher children are much more likely to complain less and enjoy more. Brookside Chocolates accompanied by hot cocoa, beautiful snowy surroundings, happy kiddos, and holiday magic ended up being my beyond favorite thing this weekend and very favorite way to enjoy Brookside.

It also worked out perfectly to have Brookside in the house during a time of year when we are surrounded with heavy sweets. Our sweet cravings were completely satisfied by a few Brookside bits here and there. This whole experience ended up being one of my favorite sponsorship opportunities to date.

This pin truly captures Brookside Chocolate; the magical combination of dark chocolate and exotic fruit!
