Join Me! | Freeze + Flow

Hi guys! Remember me? I know I know, I literally haven’t put up a blog post in forever. Since August 8th, to be exact. Work has been crazy hectic (in the best way possible!), and my little ol blog has been pushed aside a bit. Have no fear, though, because I will always have this blog, and I will write as much as I’m able, so I hope you continue to follow along.

In the meantime, I’m hosting an event coming up that I’d love for you to come to if you’re in the Houston area. 

You know by now I’ve been rather vocal about not knowing if I want kids. I’ve mentioned it on the blog, as well, I wrote an article for the HuffPost about it. 

Well, Houston IVF approached me about hosting an event centered around learning about freezing one’s eggs. Yikes, I know that sounds like a heavy topic. Well, it is, but it’s also an important one.

Personally, I know pretty much nothing on the topic, but I’ve been wanting to learn more. Because, truly, I have no clue if I want kids, but I’d like to know what my choices and options are and have the opportunity to, in fact, have kids if I decide I want them later on.

SO, the event starts with 45 minutes of yoga followed by an interactive chat with Houston IVF doctors about egg freezing and fertility preservation. And it’s all taking place at Define Living

Even if you have no interest in this topic, I hope you’ll consider coming! We can hang and do yoga together, and feel free to invite friends! 

All details below. Be sure to RSVP, and see you soon!

Just Dance, and Then Dance Some More: My Experience at Dance with Me (Part 2)

Dance with Me 2

Hey guys and hellllllo May! Crazy that it’s already May, I must say. Though, now that it’s here, I’m counting down the seconds to summer.

If you follow along on Instagram, Snapchat, or Facebook (or read this blog post), you likely saw that a couple months back I partnered with Dance with Me Studios for 5 private lessons at their Woodlands location. And, seriously, each one was SUCH a blast.

The Lineup // 4.8.17

The Lineup

If I had to describe this past week in one word, that word would be fulfillment. Each day was the perfect amount of jam packed, with loads of inspiration on the work side of things, and scattered about were great breakfasts, lunches, happy hour’s and dinners with dear friends and inspiring creatives. It was just a solid, fulfilling week. It further validates my realization I’ve had this past year that I thrive on connection, as well as creative energy. I will say, I did feel extremely overwhelmed as Friday progressed because I left for Florida this morning, and I started feeling like I had far too much to get done prior. Lo and behold, I got done what I needed to, and had to push the rest out to today. And, you know what? The world didn’t end because I had to push a couple things out. You can only do what you can do, am I right? Anyway, as I said, I’m off to Florida for the week to visit lots of family, and I can hardly wait. Whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope you have a great one. And below, as always, you’ll find some great reads and finds from this past week! xo Julie P.S. That photo above is from Levy Park, which is a new park in Houston, and it’s absolutely incredible. If you haven’t checked it out, I urge you to do so! I spent lunch there one day this past week with my dear friend and her adorable little.

Hi from Asheville! Have you ever been here? I hadn’t, and I think it’s my new favorite place. I absolutely love it and want to come back soon (I’ve already been telling my friend that I want to do a couples trip here!). Anyway, how has your week been? I was in New York and Connecticut for the first part of it, and I just love being in the northeast. Honestly, I miss it so much. I love my life in Houston, but I’d be lying if I said I’m not itching to move back at some point! I’ll be back home Saturday, and I’m looking forward to getting organized, back in my routine, and in my own bed. I hope you have a great weekend whatever you’re up to and enjoy my favorite links and finds from the week below! xo Julie

New York

Hi from New York! FINALLY got here yesterday. It was quite the ordeal (if you follow me on Snapchat, I’m sure you saw). Let’s just say I talked to United Airlines no less than 27 times on the phone this past week. But who cares because I’m HERE and I may never leave, haha! Kidding. Anyway, as I mentioned on Monday, I won’t be attending my conference this go around due to being sick earlier in the week and all the travel changes and such, BUT I still have a jam packed weekend ahead and I can’t wait. I’ll be spending time with family and friends, having some good meals, I’m sure lots of drinks, and just soaking up this cold New York weather! How has your week been? Whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope you have the best few days off (and end of spring break if you’re currently on break!). Some really great reads and finds below, so enjoy! xo Julie

6 of the Best Tips for Spring Cleaning and Organizing Your Closet

Spring Cleaning

Up until recently, my closet was not looking too good. Yes, I had shoes on shelves and such, but then there would also be shoes all over the floor (same with bags). Clothes weren’t coordinated in any which way. It was just kind of a free for all. Well, a few months back, I emptied out all my hanging items from my entire closet, and put everything back in an organized fashion. Along the way, I made piles of things to donate and sell. I haven’t done anything with those piles, but the point is, they have been made!

Now, fast forward to a couple weeks back, and I was thinking about spring cleaning and organizing. While, yes, I did make a big step towards mission closet organization, I knew there was still more to be done. Lots more. 

Enter: my friend and professional closet organizer, personal shopper, and stylist, Valerie Halfon of Shop with Val. You likely remember reading about Val this past fall in an interview we did. 

Val came over and helped to completely organize all my shoes and bags, and it was SUCH a good feeling. Val is so great to work with; she’s honest, fun, and knows how to get the job done. We got so much accomplished in so little time, too. Can’t wait to have her come back soon to do more.

TGIF! This is my last weekend at home before I head to the pitch conference in NY on Wednesday, so there will be lots of working on the book, and finishing up some assignments the conference is having the attendees do prior to it beginning. Aside from work related things, I have dinner plans, a baby shower tomorrow, and a yoga date on Sunday! As I write this, I’m sitting at a restaurant over at Market Street in The Woodlands having some eggs before I head to my next dance lesson at Dance with Me. It has been such an awesome experience, and I can’t wait to recap it for you in the coming weeks. In the meantime, be sure to keep up on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, and/or Twitter. I hope you have the best weekend whatever you’re up to, and enjoy great reads and finds below! xo Julie

Happy weekend, guys! How is it already March, btw? Can’t get over it. Tonight I’m going to the Rodeo cook off! While I’m not the biggest fan of the rodeo itself, I am SUCH a fan of the cook off weekend. It’s always a great time, and I even napped today so I’m on my A-game tonight, ha! I’m going to be working a lot tomorrow, then I have happy hour later in the day with my friends and their baby (don’t worry – baby won’t be drinking!). I’m not sure what else I’m up to this weekend, but I’m happy just playing it by ear. It’s nice to savor those unplanned moments just as much as the planned ones, right? Whatever you’re up to, I hope you have an amazing weekend. Lots of good reads and finds below, enjoy!

What a week it’s been! Short weeks always feel like the longest. I came back Monday night (on the worst flight ever, as evidenced on my Snapchat, albeit slightly dramatic, I admit) from the very best weekend up in Maryland with family. Tonight I’m heading to an early dinner with a couple girlfriends, and tomorrow it looks like I’ll be boating actually. Yep, in February – nuts! Supposed to be gorgeous, so we’ll see if it’s not too chilly. Tomorrow night we have dinner plans with friends of ours, and Sunday I tentatively have a photo shoot. Aside from all that, I’d like to get in a couple workouts and a lot of writing. This book is not going to write itself, and my deadline is creeping up! Another thing before I go – I wanted to thank you all so very much for your comments/messages/emails/texts/etc. on yesterday’s post. I was very hesitant putting it up, but I’m really glad I did. Looks like it resonated with lots of you, so for that I’m thrilled. Thank you, as always, for all your support. And, with that, any fun weekend plans on your end? I hope you have a great one whatever you’re up to! Enjoy lots of fun reads and finds below. xo Julie
