KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, guys!! I've got one beautiful small biz to share with you today, and then I'm doing things a bit differently for today's Friday Finds. I'm getting a bit overwhelmed with complimentary goodies this week, and I wanted to take this time to share my favorites with you. I'll be doing an unboxing video featuring the sample items, to post next week! But first, I did want to share one gorgeous shop with you guys. Check it all out below!

Pictured above are some handwoven home goods by Melody Fulone. Her shop is full of unique and beautifully woven wall hangings, pillows, many other home accessories; and even a bit of fiber art jewelry. I really love the neutral colors and the modern designs.

Shop the 2018 Winter Collection. And keep an eye out for a DIY kit for a crochet wall hanging in a few weeks. Melody will also be releasing her spring collection in late March!


This next brand will go into both an unboxing as well as a B…

Travel Diaries: A Tour Through Downtown Frederick, Maryland


I post often about Washington, DC and all of the other historic places I live near, but I'm just a few minutes from one of my favorite city destinations. Downtown Frederick, MD is home to boutiques, nationally renowned restaurants and a river walk. The fresh flowers, old brick buildings, and bustling cafes make it the perfect place to park and walk around on a Saturday afternoon. The shop owners are all friendly, and most of them even allow pets if you want to do your window shopping with a four-legged friend.


Window shopping is always better with friends. That's me (on the right) and my best bud Jessica (left) dating back to middle school. I am so lucky to have had her in my life for so long and to now be living in the same state despite the fact that we're both so far from home.


The first and most important stop downtown is always Zoe's chocolate. You can pick up a salted caramel and even a chocolate mustache pop.


You have to teach them when they're young that grocery-store chocolate is not the good stuff. The good stuff is handmade on a marble slab in a boutique chocolate shop.


Old red brick, painted window shutters, and flowers in planter boxes line the streets. It's an ideal place to take photos of the kids.


The river walk in downtown Frederick is home to more cafes and hosts summer concerts and arts & crafts festivals. During some city festivals, they even host canoe and paddle-boat rides.

I hope you enjoyed a tour of my town. Please take a moment to visit Shereen Travel Cheap for my DC travel guide 48 Fun Hours on a Budget In Washington D.C.

    1. That's great!:) I'm always wondering which bloggers live in the area. It would be nice to actually meet some in person. Maryland is the best, isn't it?
