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’—

Owning my own business was never part of the life plan but here we are and I couldn't be happier!!! So honored to be featured in @therefinedwoman Boss Ladies series!!

EVERYTHING is better with flowers....and a topo chico πŸ’πŸΌ. Getting through Wednesday like a boss. #drivenambassador @lexusofaustin @lexusoflakeway

It's rare that I take time to focus on my own house so when @schoolhouse asked me to try some of their products I jumped at the chance! I'm thrilled with the finished product. My little bungalow now has a fresh facelift with a new outdoor sconce, door knob, welcome mat and planter!!!! Maybe someday I'll actually get around to painting the patch in my front thing at a time. πŸ™„πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ #clairezinneckerdesign (Thanks for installing @petrifieddesign!)

This year has been such a journey of learning. I'm understanding how to balance friends, family, work and self care. I'm also discovering what it means to be content. Satisfaction is something I've struggled with throughout my life. I'm constantly questioning if I'm doing enough, too much and comparing myself to others. In some ways I think this is what drives me to work harder but I am fully aware that I need to also take time to step back and find joy in the present. Life is a learning game and growing up can be exhausting!! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’• Photo by the amazing @kellychristinesutton #clairezinneckerdesign

Monday morning and I'm missing Mexico City. Throwing myself into work mode and bringing along all the inspiration I gathered during my adventure (and pretending I live here!! πŸ‘†πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ)Hope you all have a great day!!!! πŸŒ΅πŸ’•

Real talk // I don't want to leave Mexico City (or @chayabnb! 🌡✨) I am a contradictory mix of unorganized organized compulsive controlled chaos. (does that even make sense?! πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ) These busy past few months afforded little time to plan our trip to Mexico City and we went into it fairly blind. I cannot express how grateful I am that it happened this way. We were able to explore, relax and enjoy the city without the rush of a schedule. It was perfect and I already have a list of things I want to see for next time!!! πŸ“Έ by the talented @kilpat #tresamigasmdcx @jennrosesmith πŸ‘†πŸΌ #realrealityczd behind the scenes in my stories!!

My mom informed me that I was not posting enough photos of my Mexico City adventure on actual Instagram. I've shared this before but I have been struggling with where Instagram has gone and how I want to continue with it. I began using this app because I wanted to share beautiful and inspirational images with whoever cared to follow along. That being said I'm going to push aside my current insta questions and insecurities and just share what joys I find throughout the day and hope in some way it will inspire you!

Confession : I think about how much I love my Lexus RX AT LEAST once a day. Whether it's loading in furniture for clients, clothes for shoots, plants for my house or pups and friends I wouldn't be able to do anything without this car. Even if I wasn't lucky enough to be a #drivenambassador I would definitely still be singing this SUV's praises. I'm in love!!! @lexusofaustin @lexusoflakeway

Tomorrow is Emma's pretend birthday. It has been 5 years since I spotted this peanut living in my back alley. After a month of putting out food for her I gained her trust and she quickly became a member of the #reddoorhome animal circus. It has not always been an easy journey but I can't imagine my life without this little nugget. Rescue dogs are everything. πŸ’• πŸ“Έ by @mollyculverphotography for @urbanoutfitters #clairezinneckerdesign

Guys! I am so honored to have been featured in the July issue of @austin_monthly. Pick up a copy to read about some of my favorite things! (Monte and Emma made the list, obviously!) πŸ“Έ by @jessicapages .....and yes, this is the same outfit I was wearing yesterday. I really do have about 5 outfits I just cycle through..πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ #realrealityczd #clairezinneckerdesign

One of the best parts of my job (according to me!) is that I get to buy furniture and accessories for "myself" (i.e. my clients) any time I find something I love! Luckily my Lexus RX has enough space to hold all the items I am constantly picking up and dropping off (including my pups!!) #clairezinneckerdesign #drivenambassador @lexusofaustin @lexusoflakeway

This past week I got to style a little shoot for @the_citizenry with my dear @ruthielindsey. Talk about a dream job! @sophiabush @ruthielindsey and I had so much fun moving all the beautiful pieces around the house. The result was πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ and @rebekkaseale captured it perfectly!!!! Can't wait to share more with you all!
