Happy Friday, from Mobile, Alabama! This is my third-consecutive weekend on the road, and I’m not done yet! Michael and I flew to Pensacola and made the short drive to Mobile on Thursday. We’re in town for a friend’s wedding – Michael is in the wedding. It should be a fun weekend celebrating!

Before we dive into today’s blog post, I have to share that my favorite clean beauty brand, Beautycounter, started its Black Friday Sale TODAY! Yes, today! Beautycounter is offering 15% OFF SITEWIDE + FREE SHIPPING on orders of $50 or more! I shared a full everyday-makeup tutorial using mostly Beautycounter products on Instagram yesterday, and I saved it to my Highlights – “Easy Makeup” – I’ll chat more about some of my favorite products below, but I wanted to mention the sale here in case you decide not to scroll down. I don’t want you to miss out!

Gifts Ideas Under $50 // I loved putting this Gift Guide together! All great gifts under $50!

Gift Ideas for Her: Sister, Best Friend, Mom, MIL // Every item in this Gift Guide is an item I have and LOVE!

And since Thanksgiving is next week, I’m re-sharing one of last week’s posts: 12 Outfit Ideas for Thanksgiving // I shared 12 (actually 13) outfit ideas for the holiday whether you’re having a casual lunch with family or a fancier dinner, I’ve got you covered!


With my crazy travel schedule this month (I’m out of town 16 days in November, yikes), my workouts haven’t been a huge priority. My priority during the week while at home is to get all of my work done. So there’s that … it’s a season and I’m ok with it. See my post on being “busy” vs. prioritization – I talked about this on Instagram this week.

  • Monday: None
  • Tuesday: None
  • Wednesday: SoulCycle
  • Thursday: None
  • Friday: Hotel gym weight workout in Mobile + getting steps in walking downtown!


Since I work from home most days, I like to have a podcast on in the background. As a result, I listen to a lot of podcasts throughout the week. Most are business related, but some are just for fun.

Plot twist, I actually didn’t listen to any podcasts this week! But I did write a blog post about some of my favorites! Check out my blog post on Contracts for Creatives on 6 Podcasts for Solo Entrepreneurs!

Discount Codes

I currently have a few discount codes for some of my favorite services and products. I share these on Instagram Stories often (and try to save them in my highlights), but I figured I’d share them here too in case you missed them!

*Kendra Scott // I’m so excited to share that I have a Kendra Scott discount code for y’all! You can use code KSHOLIDAY2019 for 20% OFF any purchase of $100 or more!

Winc Wine // I’ve been using Winc, a wine delivery service, for the last few months. I love that they essentially pick out wines for you, based on a fun quiz, and ship them straight to your door! I usually end up switching a bottle or two out for something I’ve been specifically wanting to try, which you can totally do too! You can use my link to get $22 off your first order, which equals out to $39 for 4 bottles of wine! Click here to place your order: winc.mivh.net/cobalt

Rent the Runway Unlimited // I’m wearing 2 dresses and a purse from RTR Unlimited this weekend – here’s my RTR Unlimited dress from last weekend! Use code RTRASHLEE for $50 OFF your first month’s service! I love using RTR Unlimited! You can read all about my experience with the service here!

Equilibria CBD // I’m just dipping my toes into the world of CBD, but I finally found a CBD company that I really trust, and I ‘m excited to be partnering with them. Equilibria is a women owned CBD company based in Chicago. I’ve been using the pain relief cream on my hips and calves after long runs while training for the half. One of the things I love most about Equilibria is that when you make a purchase, you are put in touch with a dosage specialist who can help you figure out what CBD dosage is best for you and your needs! You can use code cobaltchronicles for 15% off your first order!

Daily Harvest // My go-to, easy to make, at-home smoothies! These are great and so convenient! I love that they help me to mix up my smoothie game. When I’m left to my own devices, I tend to make the same combination smoothie day after day. Use code COBALT for $25 off your first order!

Territory Foods // The BEST already prepared, meal delivery service! If you’re in an area where Territory delivers (hey DC, Dallas, and more!), my code still works for $50 off across your first two orders ($25 off each order). Use code COBALT – I’m still lobbying for them to make their way to Houston!


Michael and I are in Mobile for a wedding this weekend! I’m planning on working from a coffee shop downtown most of the day on Friday. We have the rehearsal dinner Friday night. Saturday should be fun as Michael’s whole family will be in town – we’re planning on lunch and maybe a brewery before the wedding Saturday evening!


A few of my favorite things this week!

Pout Protecter Lip Care Set // I listed this above as one of my favorite gift sets by Beautycounter, and I truly mean it! I bought it myself this week, and I’ve used the Lip Polish (lip scrub) every other day this week. The set comes with the Lip Polish, Lip Balm, and Lip Gloss. It’s the perfect set for inevitably dry winter lips! Mine were chapped this week and the Lip Polish was perfect for taking off all of the dead skin!

Amazon Half-Zip Pullover // This pale pink pullover is SO SOFT! I paired it with joggers and leggings this week, and you could even style it with skinny jeans too! It’s available in several colors. I sized up to a medium because I wanted an oversized feel. I could have easily done a small, but I like the fit of the medium, especially with leggings! I love this piece so much that I included it in my Gift Ideas for Her Gift Guide! It’s a steal at only $30!

Have a great weekend!
