The Blow Dry Brush Comparison (and which one I loved the most!)

I hope you had a nice week! My week was exceptionally busy but in a great way! I was invited to be in Nashville, TN with some incredible women to learn more about ABLE, shop the flagship store, and hear about their plans for size extension, their focus on sustainability, and ethically-sourced apparel. You can read more about it here!

When I got home, I had one normal day and then got to celebrate the grand opening of the first Evereve store in North Carolina! I’ve been a fan of the brand from right around the inception, so it was very “full circle” to be cheering them on when they opened up a location at Streets of Southpoint mall in Durham!

I used my favorite bags for traveling when I went to Nashville earlier this week, and if you’re looking for some high-quality, sturdy gear–read this!
