Searching for "tie front"

The Glam App

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of attending The Glam App’s first launch party in Houston, TX. For those of you that don’t know The Glam App is a revolutionary way that brings the salon to your front door step. Beauty on demand, anywhere, any time. The app  lets you experience luxury and pampering in the comforts of your own home or place of your choosing. This is great for mamas, girls nights, bachelorette parties, date night, or any reason at all that you want to have any beauty services done without leaving your house. We all deserve to feel pampered and beautiful and what better way than drinking a glass of wine with your feet up and in your own home! I sure was sold immediately 🙂

“With the push of a button, The Glam App delivers beauty experts to your front door. Offering services that range from a blow dry, to make up applications, or just a simple polish change there’s no need to leave your house, when we bring the salon to you.”

We were pampered throughout the night enjoying the services that the app had to offer- hair, make-up and nails! And the best part about this is that the app brings together the best stylists and make-up artists from all around the Houston area so that they are at your disposal anytime that you want!

As always I love being able to meet new people and find out about products and services that I probably would not have if not through this blogging venture. The launch party brought together some amazing bloggers, fashionistas, and other Houston creatives and influencers that I love being able to experience this journey with and also get to share with all of you guys. I have linked the girls blogs above and you should definitely check them all out! Such sweet and incredible girls.

Something Blue.

Happy Monday everyone and hope you all had a great weekend! I got to have a pretty relaxing weekend which consisted of lots of movies, played with my new camera, had a brunch date with Britt (from Hello Honey blog), and visited my parents. All in all it was a much needed break from what seems like such a busy last few weeks.

For Christmas my mom gave me the most beautiful blue coat that I have ever laid eyes on. I am a sucker for anything blue because it is such a fun, bright color and makes those blue eyes pop! O and speaking of mama I get my love for fashion from her, and budget fashion at that. We call her the Queen of Ross and Marshalls! So you can see where my Marshalls/Tj Maxx obsession comes from. I will have to feature her on the blog here pretty soon so you all can see the cutest mama around!

On black Friday I scored some amazing Loft finds including this dress with it’s darling beaded collar. Have you ever heard it’s all in the details? This dress sure got the memo! With details that stand out like that, I like to down play my accessories. I went with some iridescent earrings and ring that don’t overpower the detailing on the dress.

This dress is so modest, yet so chic and high fashion. You could easily transition this outfit from day to night. I have worn this dress to work, to holiday events, and would most definitely wear it out to dinner. To say it is a versatile look would be pretty accurate! The booties that I am wearing I scored earlier in the season for $20 at Ross but I have linked a similar pair.

Before ending today’s post I’d like to share with you guys that I hit a milestone this weekend-1,000 followers on Instagram!! It may not sound like much but it was my goal to get one thousand followers by the time I hit my 3 month mark and I met that goal 2 weeks early. So I wanted to say thank you to all of you and that I plan on celebrating all of these little milestones because the small things matter! I didn’t know if launching the blog would go anywhere and you all are showing me that I might actually know what I am talking about. Thank you for following along on this crazy journey with me and letting me share my love for fashion with you guys!

Suede Skirt and Beaded Sleeves.

One of the many reasons I love the holidays is all of the festive outfits. I know there are lots of holiday parties and events around this time of year so I wanted to put together an easy look that you can wear for many occasions. I wore something very similar to this for a nice Christmas dinner recently.

Skirt (similar) // Clutch // Heels

Unfortunately I could not find this blouse to link up since I got it last year after Christmas from Zara. Some other fun options for tops to go with this look are herehere, and here. Outfits like this are so much fun because color gets brought into the ensemble with the details. Since both my top and skirt are solid colors, this gave me the ability to have fun with the details. That means a bold lip color (MAC– “Captive”), statement clutch and jewelry! Very rarely will you find me without color in my outfit so if it’s not in the actual outfit you bet you will find it in the details! Adding in pops of color to your outfit can really make a difference in the overall appeal of an outfit. One of the best compliments I have received so far was from a coworker that told me I was her style inspiration because I always added color into my wardrobe and she wanted to start doing the same. I love when I can help someone else dress better, and overall make them feel better about their outward appearance! 🙂

Happy Holidays! Only 3 more sleeps until Santa comes!

Color block Poncho.

I can’t help but smile because it’s the weekend and we are officially less than a week away from Christmas!! I hope all of you lovelies have a great time off from the hustle and bustle and can put your feet up. I really should take my own advice on that one 🙂

Poncho (similar) // Shoes (similar) //Jeans // Clutch // Hat // Necklace

Can you tell we danced in the rain a bit getting these pictures in?! My hat is proof of it! A cold front blew through Houston and I immediately pulled out this cute poncho that is more like a blanket because it is so soft! All I did was throw on a casual black top and jeans and let the poncho do the talking for this outfit. I dressed the outfit up a bit more with a winter hat, booties and accessories. I picked up these cute, gold bracelets at the Houston Nutcracker Market and have been wearing them on repeat since they literally go with everything! As always (or so my blog would tell) maroon and winter hats are a season favorite of mine that keep popping up in my attire. You know it’s bad when you have to tell yourself you aren’t allowed to wear hats with every single outfit. Oops! Every other one is totally acceptable though right? 😉

Happy Christmas week and enjoy your weekend!

You better BELIZE it.

A couple of weeks ago I was able to travel to Belize for the second time and it did not disappoint. It was amazing to get away from the busy pace of life and just relax on the beach. To be phoneless and out of touch with reality for the week was such a breath of fresh air but is also why I only got 4 pictures while I was there.

 We stayed on Ambergris Caye, an island off of the mainland. There is a quaint, adventurous feeling about the island. Everything about Belize screams beauty. Not your 5 star, all inclusive, breath-taking view kind of beautiful but something a little different. At first sight Belize looks run down, poor, and ugly. The waters near the beach were murky from the storms and seaweed, but further out the waters were crystal blue and beautiful. That didn’t bother me much because there is just something amazing about waking up with the beach 15 feet from your front door step, being able to enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the waves crash, and finding adventure in exploring the winding beaches. Living simply for the week is what I enjoyed most. Belize is known for being the second best dive spot in the nation. Unfortunately I have bad ears and can never go scuba diving, but it did not stop me from enjoying the beautiful blue waters and dipping my toes in the sea!

My favorite part of the trip was our fishing trip. We took a boat out, caught lots of snapper (yes they are itty bitty but I was SO proud nonetheless), and then our captain took us to a small island and cooked us lunch full of smoked fish and ceviche. BEST CEVICHE EVER (I wish I had a picture to share because the colors were out of this world). I can promise you now that there will definitely be some ceviche coming to a blog near you in the near future 🙂 While there we met a group of locals that we spent a lot of time with. This group came from all over the world, most being from Texas and Florida to retire. They gave us recommendations for food and other activities that were not “touristy”. We enjoyed lots of mojitos, ceviche, and lobster. The best places to go to on vacation are always the ones that the locals recommend. If you don’t normally ask for the locals’ advice when you are on vacation, you are missing out! If any of you are traveling to Belize and need recommendations I would be glad to share where we stayed and ate any meals!
