I'd love to get to know you better!  Feel free to drop me a note anytime!

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love when someone I trust shares about a product that they can’t help but to rave over. It’s exciting to discover new companies and new products. And! It always helps to have a first hand review! So! Here are five products that I have been loving this week! (Also, side note that this post started out as three products, but I just couldn’t narrow down which I wanted to share with you today so here are FIVE! ) Enjoy!!!

. . . . . . . . . . . .


I recently upgraded my phone for the first time in nearly three years. I had heard about Loopy cases for a while through advertising, but was always too skeptical to purchase one. I finally caved with a discount code and a recommendation from Merrick’s Art and I will never have another phone case, y’all! I have the iPhone XS Max and this case helps me to keep such a large phone secure in my hand at all times. I also love that I can hold it by the loop itself when my hands are really full carrying all the things because thats just what moms do! Also, they are such a good, strong quality without the bulk! There are some super cute colors and patterns for both the cases and the loops! I have the clear white ombre case! I love that it allows the gold on my phone to show through without completely covering it!


This was another purchase that I was skeptical of, but caved with a discount code! Let me start with saying that I would usually never spend this kind of money on shoes. (Especially as someone that has never loved the feel of wearing flats) But! I was intrigued enough in hopes that they would be the miracle shoe that I’ve been looking for for long wedding days. I first purchased the Flax Birdseye Point and then I also just purchased the Rosebud Point from their fall line! I’ll be sharing a post soon with a full and honest review of my Rothy’s, but the short version is that I 100% recommend them and if you’re interested in purchasing a pair asap, you can use this code for $20 off your first order!


I have always been a pen and paper kind of gal, but never actually consistently stuck with planners long enough to justify purchasing them. I was drawn to the colors and quality of the Simplified Planners and decided to get one last year. I am so glad I did because I literally love it so much! The quality is amazing- Hard cover. Great smooth, thick pages. Beautiful, strong gold binding. The covers are gorgeous and I love the heart behind the brand! You can learn more about the brand by clicking HERE and I’ll be sharing a blog about my simplified planner soon!


I don’t know if this counts as a “product”, but I loved it so it’s making the list! I just finished this book and I highly recommend it! It’s written with a perspective of how overly reliant we have become to technology. Not in a sense of “technology is the devil”, but more of an eye opener of how much time we unknowingly waste on technology and how much more fulfilling our lives would be if we took a step back to disconnect! It is a brilliant book and written in a way that I could relate to. The way the book unfolds also made me feel very engaged as I read! Sometimes books like this make me feel bored quickly because they are so fact driven, but this book was written more through the eyes of experiences and first hand accounts! I really enjoyed it! And! Bonus! It was enlightening when it comes to my social media habits!


Ok, ok. I feel a little risqué even typing the name of this mascara, BUT!!! I will back that with saying that it’s the best mascara I’ve ever used!!! I’ve said that before about a few other mascara brands, but this one lives up to the title of best by far!! I apply two coats in the morning and it keeps my lashes looking full for all day wear!

And thats it, friends! Five of my favorite products that I’ve been LOVING! If you loved this post, let me know in the comments below and maybe we’ll make this a regular thing! As always, if you have any questions, send me an email to and I’ll be happy to answer anything you’re curious about! Have an amazing day!! – Abby

Hey y’all! I so hope you enjoyed this post!! I began writing it to simply share awesome new products that I love with you! I was able to included an affiliate link/ unique discount code for Rothys and Simplified. If you decide to purchase either of these products, I’d be so grateful if you would purchase through this post!! Thanks a bunch, friend!

Important Information about Abby Hudson Photography . . .

It has been an amazing 11 years working with so many sweet seniors, families, and brides.  This business has grown beyond my wildest dreams and I am so grateful for the support I've received.  With that being said, Abby Hudson Photography has closed as I venture into a new season of life. 

The blog is still active to view past work and keep the memories of this great season alive.  I will not, however, be accepting new clients at this time.

I'm so grateful for your understanding and support!  Hugs to you all!
