Dallas is such a creative community.  It seems I’m always learning of new businesses with gorgeous products.  I was just introduced to Parker and Hyde, started by Lauren and Zack McLarnon.  Parker and Hyde creates beautiful cowhide products including floor covering, furniture and their newest addition, clutches.

Parker and Hyde began when Zack decided to invest in a leather company out of Brazil – without telling his wife. He had a vision of selling cowhide rugs to décor minded Dallasites. He thought he’d sell a few hides as a bit of a “hobby” and maybe Lauren would never even find out.  But Lauren did eventually find out because as the demand for the cowhides grew and it was a secret Zack could no longer keep. Lauren and their daughter, Molly, found themselves enthusiastically part of “Team Cowhide”.  Even their tiny son, Parker, is involved lending his name.

It wasn’t long until Zack began customizing furniture and lighting with his couture cowhide and Lauren envisioned a way to translate it into something women all love – a great handbag.

These clutches are luxurious and come in the most gorgeous rainbow of colors!  They are a great size for all of your essentials.  I’ve carried even mine during the day.  It also fits perfectly in a larger tote making it perfect for travel, too.  The Emily, Molly and Lauren are my favorites.  I have a cowhide in my family room or I’d want the Cici, too.  Honestly, I’d take them all!  You can personalize them with colorful tassels making it a custom creation all your own.

I hope you’ll visit their website and grab a clutch (or two!) and check out their beautiful line of furniture (I’m obsessed with this bench) and high-quality floor coverings.

Creating the Habit of Exercise + Activewear Favorites

Creating the Habit of Exercise + Activewear Favorites

One of the ways I am taking advantage of the forced pause is creating the habit of exercise for myself. I don’t talk about exercise much on AWL because, well, I don’t usually do it. But that is changing!






My Work From Home Style

My Work From Home Style

Because I’ve worked from home for 24 years, either freelancing PR, event planning, volunteering or blogging, WFH or Work From Home attire is not new to me.  While there are days I stay in workout clothes, I get much accomplished when I get dressed for the day!
