I am super excited to share with y’all that H&T is now on TV! This first segment was syndicated across the country and am working on many more so stay tuned to find out when I’ll air next. This has always been a huge goal of mine before I turned 30 (still in my 20s, woo!) and I could not be more happy to begin this journey.
For those of you that did not get to see this air last week, I’ve included the clip below and hope you enjoy and are inspired to host your own.
Thank you all for all your sweet comments as I’ve shared this on social media and for those that have been following along awhile, you know this segment was inspired by this post so many years ago. As always, I appreciate each and every one of you for following along and allowing many of my dreams to come true.
Be sure to follow along on Snapchat if you aren’t (bannc) as I took y’all behind the scenes at the studio and will keep you posted on the next segment too.
And I don’t know about where you live, but it’s certainly feeling like Summertime ever since Memorial Day weekend has come and gone down here in the Sunshine State!
That’s why, I’m teaming up with my friends at LaCroix to giveaway a MONTH SUPPLY of LaCroix Sparkling Water in the flavor(s) of your choosing! Last week, we kicked off the giveaway on Instagram and there is still time to enter there (@bannc) and/or below for more chances through the weekend.
I did not think I was alone in my self-proclaimed addiction to LaCroix – and I love hearing from y’all on Snapchat (bannc), Instagram and Twitter, about what your favorite flavors are. I am loving the Mango right now, Lemon for a basic one, Lime by the pool and also the LaCroix Curate Melon Pomelo in the tall skinny cans, but let’s be honest, my fridge is normally stocked with a variety of flavors and I’ll never say no to one more during my day.

Today I’m partnering with Rent the Runway to bring you this almost-summertime Hosting or Toasting look!
I fell immediately in love with this dress and if you’ve been following along behind the scenes on Snapchat (bannc) or Instagram (@bannc) - you know I’ve teased it quite a few times. The back-less details are my favorite part.
In case you hadn’t heard – Rent the Runway now also offers an monthly unlimited service – unlimited designer looks (not just dresses!) at one monthly price with free shipping, free insurance and dry cleaning and no rental fees.
Scroll down below for a promo code for your first month!
In today’s busy world, it seems that there is little room for “white space”. I am more than guilty of lacking what some would call a “balanced life” some weeks between juggling and scheduling a full time job that I love, running H&T (also a full time job that I love!), working out, relationships, carving out time for friends and family and sleeping enough.
If you’ve seen my Snapchats (bannc), you know that sometimes I can be quite the night owl and still somehow manage to wake up, fuel myself full of coffee and head to work out bright and early.
However, what helps keep me centered and scheduled in my organized chaos of a life, has always been a physical planner. Yes, an old fashioned – use your colored pens + pencils – kind of book. I still use my iPhone calendars but I’ve always been a firm believer in writing things down, making lists and checking things off (could anything be more satisfying!?)
This is why I also love Emily Ley’s Simplified Planners so much – because the help me do just that. The new ones just launched last week and I’m already filling mine up with birthdays, wedding weekends and other important dates, so that it’s all ready to go later this year. I also paperclip in birthday cards as reminders of when to mail them out because I still believe in snail mail and handwritten thank you notes at all times of the year.
The other reason I love these planners so much is how simple they truly are – you can schedule your day by the hour – add in meal preps, weekly highlights and reminders and be inspired by quotes each day. You can also prioritize, forgive yourself a little for not getting everything done perfectly and carve out that much needed “white space” for yourself and your loved ones.
