I am beyond excited to report that Emma's biopsies came back negative and she is cancer free!!!! Thanks to everyone who sent kind and encouraging messages. I love how many of you love my peanut. I can't imagine my life without this babe. HALLELUJAH!!!! ✨Thanks to Circle C Animal Hospital for taking the best care of her. πŸ™πŸΌ

Still on a high from this weekend's adventures. I'm currently sifting through all of @wynnmyers amazing photos and reliving it all. The food, finds and friends made this experience one for the books and I can't wait to share it with you guys via @dominomag with my Round Top Guide! Stay tuned. πŸ’—βœ¨ #clairezinneckerdesign

Had one of my usual 4a wake up and stress about life nights so I decided it was time for a #realrealityczd. Get ready for a long post. βž• The end of last year and beginning of this one brought a storm of challenges. Both personally and professionally I was beaten down and most days didn't even want to get out of bed. I questioned every choice I had made and was making and wondered where I went wrong. I tried to act like everything was fine but inside I was broken. I knew that if I didn't let myself break down and allow myself to be vulnerable I wouldn't be able to get past it. βž• Probably for the first time in my life I fully admitted to myself and to others that I didn't have it together. I was insecure and confused and decided to just show that part of me. The result? I made some of the strongest friendships I have ever had. I became a person who others feel comfortable coming to with their issues as well. I gained back my confidence and approached life, friendships and work with a new drive. The results have been incredible. βž• I still have my days (like last night's 4am rabbit hole of social media comparison) but I’m getting better at changing my mindset to not let that consume me. When I was in the darkest point of the storm I couldn't imagine myself getting out of it, but now looking back I am so thankful for all of it. It taught me so much and for the first time in 30 years I feel fully myself. βž• photo by the lovely @kilpat from our Mexico City adventure. my heart and my prayers are with that city right now. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’—

'Tis the season!! Time for the wonderful world of antiquing. How is it possible that fall is almost here?? Round Top season is officially upon us (hip hip hooray!!!) and I'm getting all my plans finalized for a fabulous adventure this weekend. Follow along to see what I see and help me decide what to buy and not buy. πŸ™‹πŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌβœ¨ #clairezinneckerdesign #czdtravels

Dressed to match the landscape. Completely geeked out over the color story I found during the hike today. We out here. πŸ™‹πŸΌ Austin you are just so magical. #ovhikersclub #doingthings @outdoorvoices @ovaustin ....thanks for the photo @frankie.jean

My mom keeps asking me to post photos of current projects. The problem is they are all under major construction! So, in honor of #clairezinneckerdesign turning 4 I thought I'd share one of my very first projects. I was lucky enough to have a client with a great eye and aesthetic which made the space come together perfectly! I learned so much and also realized that clients can quickly become life long friends. πŸ’— @ashtonarthur // photo by @mollyculverphotography

In case you missed my amazingly exciting announcement - I am designing MY VERY OWN rug line with @luluandgeorgia!!! Life is a DREAM! I'm patiently (ahem very impatiently actually) waiting for the samples to come in! While I wait I'm tossing around names for the rugs (eep!) ...currently I'm inspired by names of women in my family // Marie, Dorothy, Georgia, Inez, Betsy. What do you think?? HELP! #clairezinneckerdesign

Thinking about all my friends in Mexico today. So much tragedy in our world right now. Some days I feel so helpless and discouraged. Stay safe everyone and hug your loved ones. There is so much to be thankful for in this world if we look for it. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’“

Thanks my calendar I was reminded that it's my anniversary month. #clairezinneckerdesign is officially FOUR YEARS OLD!!! Never in my control freak life did I ever expect things to turn out the way they have but I wouldn't change it for the world. I have a feeling this year will be the best yet!! Thanks to everyone who has supported me through the highs and lows. I appreciate more than you will ever know! πŸ’— // photo by my dear @mollyculverphotography

Feeling exhausted but encouraged. Sometimes it's easy to feel disheartened by everything happening in our world but seeing how many people from all over have jumped in and donated their time, resources and energy to help victims of Harvey gives me a such joy. πŸ’—

@limbojewelry is donating 30% of their online sales to the American Red Cross. Treat yourself for a good cause. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’— #zincollection // link in profile //

Happy national dog day from my kiddos to yours! They rule my life and I am completely okay with it. πŸ’—πŸΆπŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸ”§πŸΆπŸ’—

Our afternoon at the lake wore everyone out. Watching Emma continue to blossom makes me so proud. I found her in my alley and spent over a month just coaxing her to come near me. We have had our struggles but seeing her discover what it means to be taken care of and loved fills me with an indescribable joy. Oh and also, where the heck am I supposed to fit on that bed? πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ to see more of our lake day (Emma swam!) check my stories! πŸ‘†πŸΌ

GUYS!!!! I rarely do giveaways so when I do it means it's something I really love! In case you didn't know my dogs are my life so obviously I like to get them the most stylish bling around. @dogplusbone sent them some new presents and they want you to have some as well! So I got together with @365thingsaustin to do a fun giveaway!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ 1) follow @dogplusbone + @365thingsaustin 2) Tag an animal lover in your life Winner chosen Sunday. READY SET GO!

As you all know this year has been such a learning journey for me. Teaching myself to find happiness, contentment and joy in the everyday instead of constantly looking for it in the "next thing" has been incredibly eye opening. Every day and every moment is a gift to be enjoyed. Sunsets, friends and flowers all bring about such joy if I truly am present and thankful. I mean, these flowers are unreal!! (But if you wanna see how I really pose for photos take a look at my insta storyπŸ‘†πŸΌπŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ) πŸ“Έ @dylangmoss

I still can't believe the amazing support and positive response from everyone. What an incredible experience it has been to feel so loved and encouraged. In case you missed it, the #zincollection was featured on @fox7austin #makeitmonday!!! Keep buying and THANK YOU! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜ // link in profile // πŸ“Έ by @kilpat

Real reality // I am my own harshest critic. There is always something I need to be doing, could have done better, etc. etc. A part of me is okay with this because it means I am constantly challenging and pushing myself but a part of me hates it because it hinders me from being able to enjoy good moments. It is also why I'm determined to encourage others as much as I would love to be encouraged. There's space enough for all of us, why wouldn't we want to support each other?

Today when I went into @revolucionsa to snap some photos (someday I'll get this place photographed and on my website!πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ) the guy behind the counter said I dressed like I designed the place. Seriously guys I DRESS TO MATCH THE PLACES I DESIGN and I don't mean to...I can't decide if I love or hate my own predictability. In other news happy freakin Friday!! πŸ’₯ What are your plans this weekend??? #clairezinneckerdesign

Today on the blog I'm sharing my year with Lexus!!! What an incredible experience it has been. I'm officially spoiled and can't imagine my life with this vehicle or this company in my life! (Monte and Emma agree!!) // link in profile // #drivenambassador @lexusofaustin @lexusoflakeway

GUYS!! The response to the jewelry line is beyond anything I could have dreamed. I have to admit putting myself out there with my own product was terrifying BUT the support and encouragement from you all has made me feel so humbled and loved. THANK YOU GUYS a million times over.. (oh and if you haven't bought anything the link is in my profile and if you have keep shopping!!) β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜˜πŸ’“πŸ’₯ @limbojewelry #clairezinneckerdesign

I woke up today smiling from ear to ear. (And FYI I am not a morning person so this is rare! πŸ˜‚) Last night was incredible. I felt so loved and supported by everyone who came to celebrate the launch of the #zincollection collaboration with @limbojewelry!! I was so excited to share that the collection is OFFICIALLY LIVE ONLINE FOR SALE that I snapped this photo quickly. #realrealityczd my house is super dark right now so it's not my favorite quality but oh well that's how life works sometimes! LINK IN PROFILE shop shop shop away! // Thanks for everyone's kind words and support. OH AND 30k followers! Dreams. Words can't express how grateful I am. πŸ’—

In a social media world full of ads and sponsorships I try really hard to only promote products I truly love. I want to always be authentic with you all so please know that when I share specific brands I would wear them myself! Yesterday I met up with the cute girls of @neelyandchloe who are traveling around in an airstream pop up store! I just about died over their bags (great quality AND affordable). πŸ‘†πŸΌ That blue suede though 😍their pop up is at the domain through Friday!!... (and for those of you who asked about my dress on insta story it's from @zara)

I can't believe I'm typing this but today I met with @luluandgeorgia to finalize the colors for MY RUG COLLECTION WITH THEM!!! Life is a DREAM! I can't wait to share the final products and stay tuned for sneak peeks during the process!!! #clairezinneckerdesign

Today marks 8 years since the passing of my dear friend, Stacy Marie. A lot of you have asked about this tattoo on my finger. It was my first tattoo and was done in memory of her. We share the same middle name, Marie, a name I also share with so many women in my family. Stacy once wrote an amazingly open and honest poem which began with "in case you were wondering my middle name is Marie" and now this name will remain on my finger in Braille, serving a constant reminder of her beauty and talent. I love when people ask about it because I get to share her life and continue her story. Miss you always Stace. πŸ’—
