These are not sponsored, they are just some of my favorite things that are bringing joy to my life, so I wanted to share them with you! I think it’s always helpful to have recommendations from people who have tried them + used them enough to have a true review!

*as a photographer, I always give credit where credit is due! These photos are from their perspective websites and not my own :)*

1. Ember Coffee Mug

Photography l Favorite Things Blog l Ember MugThe second my coffee becomes room temperature I’m taking a trip to the microwave to make it piping hot again. Between a toddler and working from home, I’m interrupting what I’m doing about 10 times to reheat my cup before it’s finished! My mother-in-law got me an Ember coffee mug for Christmas, and I have to say I love it! You can control the temperature from the app on your phone, and save your heat setting when you find the perfect temperature. This is something I wouldn’t have purchased for myself and it’s a little pricey, but if you like your coffee to stay hot, it’s a nice luxury item 😊


2. Simplified Planner by Emily Ley

I’m a planner snob, and for 10+ years I was using the Lilly Pulitzer planner. I love the bright colors + Lilly prints, but I needed something a little more advanced now that I’m balancing running a business, raising a toddler, and all the family activities and life events. After asking for recommendations, the Simplified Planner came highly praised! My planner is my lifeline + something I use every day, so I didn’t mind spending a little more on it. I chose the daily edition, where each day has its own page. It’s no secret I adore Emily Ley + all things she creates, and this planner is no exception! The name says it all! It’s one of my favorite things because I love how simplified and easily customizable it is. I’m going to share how I use my Simplified Planner in a future blog post. I love the Happy Stripe print!


3. Blue Light Blocking Glasses

These are cute + inexpensive! I am looking at a computer screen for the majority of my workday, and these have truly helped me have fewer headaches.


4. Rothy’s

Truly the only shoes I can wear all day on a wedding day for 10+ hours and my feet not hurt or have blisters. They aren’t cheap, but worth every penny. The best part? They are machine washable, made from recycled plastic water bottles(!), SO comfortable, and I have a code for $20 off your first order!  I don’t usually order shoes online because I like trying them on first, especially to know the correct size. I am normally a 7.5 or 8 but I am an 8.5 in these. They have free shipping + returns, making it super easy to swap out if you need a different size. I can’t wait to add another pair to my wardrobe!

$20 off your first Rothys order!


5. Frixion Erasable Pens by Pilot

Favorite Things

The perfect accessory for my fellow stationery lovin’ friends. These ballpoint pens write nicely + they are erasable, which is nice for changes in my planner 😉


Have you tried any of my favorite things?! I hope you love them as much as I have!

Full Disclosure: These links direct you to my Amazon Storefront which I do earn commission from if you choose to purchase (it’s not added to your total at all! It’s just a nice perk for recommending all my favs with you!)
