Social Media Boot Camp Part 2

I sincerely hope all of you that attended the Chick Bosses Social Media Boot Camp had a wonderful time and learned a lot. A huge thank you to Dr. Nick Gerlich for taking the time to walk all of us through the history and details about various social media platforms. We noticed however that there were a few of you that may have been a little lost at times. If you feel like you could use more of a beginners tutorial regarding the online presence of your business, we ask you to join us for this free follow up course taking place this Tuesday, May 19th at 5:30pm. Sharing of ideas, Wine, & Laughs all welcome of course.

(Again, thanks to Mallory Henderson for this snapshot during our first event!)

Drop a line

Alright, so this is going to be one of the more lengthy posts that I occasionally do, but I'm dying to hear from you guys.

As you know, I tend to mix things up quite a bit. If you've followed me here for a while you well know that this blog and the from6th brand was originally created as a way for me to get the word out about events I was hosting at my first homewares shop, NEST, as well as an inspiration outlet for all of the things that inspired the designs there. Things have changed quite a bit over the years. I tried to hold on to my small shop for an entire year after remodeling & opening The NAT just down the block; however, running both was too difficult! Trying to employ, stock, and design the two locations was overwhelming to say the least. After closing the NEST doors, I absolutely refused to let go of the building with hopes that one day I would find the time to return to my first love. Today, I'm still operating The NAT, which is wildly successful, and have gone back to my Interior Design roots by teaming up with my father & husband at NEST Interiors & Construction.

The only problem is that I still feel like something is missing. I've gone back & forth trying to figure out exactly what is lacking from my life considering I've got things pretty good. Shortly after joining forces with several other creative female entrepreneurs in a group called "Chick Bosses", it finally hit me. I miss the hands on creative day to day experiences I used to have when I would spend my time at NEST. I used to regularly interact with a variety of individuals that inspired me, and would take that inspiration and put it to use by making things & hosting events. I'm not saying I plan on reopening the space or anything, but I would love to begin using it to create in again...this is what brings me to you.

I'd love to get some feedback through a short survey about what you want to see from from6th. If you are not already on the NEST email list, please send me your contact either here, on Facebook, or to

Keep an eye out in your inbox this week!

found flowers

We all had so much fun learning the basics of flower arranging at Parie Designs' new warehouse last Saturday. Several of us opted to have our flowers supplied, but the lovely Krystal O'mara, one of the attendees, brought the house down when she showed up with multiple tupperware buckets full of flowers she rounded up early that morning from all over town. I had no idea that our desert area had so many beautiful plants to offer. One of my favorite things I found in her loot was the yellow sweet clover. After the class, I've now noticed this type of clover can be found all over town...who knew? The best part of the workshop was getting to style our arrangements for the crazy talented Mallory Henderson to shoot. I mean, just look at these! Are they not some of the most beautiful images ever? If you're kicking yourself for missing out, be sure to follow Parie Designs on Instagram & Facebook to stay in the know about their next class!  

...for all you creatives out there

This Saturday the amazing Parie at Parie Designs is holding a #foundflowers workshop at her new warehouse. I debated going considering I don't have a lot of flowers blooming around our house, but then I found out that she's offering two ticket tiers and will supply flowers for those in that exact situation.

Hope to see you there!

On the go essentials

Our wee one is finally becoming a tad bit more independent as of late, which means I've been getting back to work more. Here are a few of my daily essentials that make my meetings and errands a lot more enjoyable.

First, I'm absolutely in love with bkr's bottles and all the lovely colors they come in. As for the super swanky macbook jacket,  I only recently picked it up since I'm toting my laptop to and from the job site so often these days. Another new addition is my first Libby Lane bag. Why on earth did it take me so long to get one of these!?! I've only been carrying it for 3 weeks and I'm loving how the leather is softening & reshaping itself. It also came with a detachable key fob on the inside which makes finding my keys so much easier when I've got the babe on the my other arm! The other 2 accessories have been my day to day must haves for some time now. I love the entire line of Horse watches, and those sunglasses might be the only pair I own that don't give me a splitting headache by the end of the day. As for Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer, well I've been a fan ever since high school when my cousin introduced me to the line. Links are below if you'd like to snag some of these gorgeous goods for yourself!


There are numerous social media platforms for business use these days, and it can quickly become overwhelming. These promotional platforms are changing everyday which can make it difficult to keep up.

If you've experienced this struggle first hand,  we (Chick Bosses & Planit Wed) would like to invite you to our intense workshop devoted to helping you navigate through those issues!

Social Media Bootcamp will be held May 12th at the WT Enterprise Center featuring speaker Dr. Nick Gerlich. Please follow the link here to purchase tickets: Social Media Bootcamp

The Loot

If you haven't checked out the from6th space at The NAT lately you're missing out! Here are a few gems I scored down in Round Top. I'm having to exercise some serious restraint not to take that driftwood table home with me!
