You may see ads pop up for photo presets that edit all of your Instagram photos to make them look professional and consistent. Most of the ads make the editing appear to be magic, but you have to purchase the presets. The presets cost anywhere from $20-$50 Before you invest in a purchase, you may wonder what the heck they even are, and if they’re worth it for you.
Post-holiday is always the worst time of year when it comes to home decor. Its a little hard to decorate for spring when it is still below 0 outside. I’ve had a little bit of a rough January personally, and this year I was just over winter and ready to dive into spring.
It’s officially only 9 days until Christmas (how did that happen!!). This season has gone by so fast but I wanted to share my holiday decor with you all. It is my favorite time of year because it just feels so magical!
As winter hits in Minnesota, I’ve struggled with getting my outdoor runs in— especially long runs! The sunrise is so much later now than it is in the summer, so it’s not as easy to get out for a run before work. I was looking through photos from some of my favorite early morning runs from this summer, and found a few from a beautiful morning with crazy high humidity that caused a heavy fog. It was actually hard to run in the high humidity, but I had a good excuse for photo breaks.
This year, I was so excited to decorate for Christmas and started decorating right after I took down my Halloween decorations. I ended up purchasing a lot of decorations on clearance after Christmas last year and its always a fun surprise to find all of the items that I forgot about!
I also added a lot of new decor from the Hearth & Hand with Magnolia brand from Target. I actually worked on developing the fabrics for this collection and we worked so hard to make the items a beautiful quality (opinions are my own- LOL!).

Chicago is only a quick hour flight from my home in Minneapolis and is a great city for inspiration, shopping, and eating. I recently spent a few days there to do some fall shopping and to enjoy the beautiful city.
