Weekly Wardrobe

I hope you loves had a wonderful weekend, we spent some time in San Antonio visiting my bestie and her family.  I was kind of hoping to get some outfits photographed for you guys but as life tends to happen we didn't have a ton of time to get a lot of things done. 

With that being said, a lot of the time I try my best to photograph my daily outfits and a lot of the time they either don't make it over to the 9 squares in IG, or they only make it over to my stories which only last for 24 hours. 

So I figured I would go ahead and start documenting some of my weekly outfits and putting them up on the blog to have a place for you guys to come and see what I wore, if you missed it and a place where you can find similar outfits or links to the items I am wearing. 

I am still working on convincing E to help me with photographing outfits, but with a change in jobs and football season starting back up I may just need to invest in a photographer.  :/   

If this is something you guys would love to see up on the blog, let me know in the comments below.

Toast & Twirl Workshop

Toast & Twirl Workshop

This past weekend I was able to attend the Toast and Twirl Workshop with ToastfromtheHost [Lauren Banzu] it was held at the Aris at Market Square and if you are looking for downtown living I can totally recommend visiting this place to keep in the running.  

It was so much fun, we did a bunch of DIY's which oddly enough I like to do.  I saw some of my other blogger friends and I had just a good time being out with adults.

Soft Nude Summer Midi Dress

I recently picked up a couple of items from Forever 21 because I needed a couple of things for our cruise later this year.  I feel like I am constantly talking about this cruise here on the blog but I really feel like this will be the beginning of a lot of traveling for us.

I have been proactively planning for the trip so last minute I am not running around frantically like a crazy person, I am sure that I will still be going a bit crazy since this is our first trip as a family of 3 and the longest trip E and I have also taken together as well. 

I am just so ready to go.  I will be highlighting a couple of the things I picked out from a few "hauls" I have done soon.  I have been strategically planning new outfits as I need to.  

I also love this dress because while it will be absolutely great for the cruise, it is also the perfect thing to throw on for an easy sunday funday with the family or to brunch with your girls. 

Apparently, Football is starting back up and my husband is going to have to deal with J while he watches it and I can get things I need to do done, by myself.  A girl can dream right, lol.

Summer Edition: Top 10 Products for Better Skin

Summer Edition: Top 10 Products for Better Skin

Man I conquered yesterday like a boss!

I was able to get a ton of household chores done because my house looked like a total disaster.  [At least in my eyes] 

Toys were everywhere, J had shoes thrown all over the house and laundry was at it's wits end.  The problem with laundry I guess, is that it is never ending then E and I have wayy to much clothes.  I have boxes in our garage that need to go to the donation center asap.

Creating a Day to Night #MOTD

Creating a Day to Night #MOTD

I have watched so many videos over the years that I knew I wanted to have my own channel one day but I wasn’t sure I wanted to put myself out there.

It is really scary, but my friends kept urging me to do it and I knew that eventually I needed to put my nerves to the side and make the jump. 

Especially when my niece is telling me I have no excuses I knew it was time to do it.

Mama Moments: Summer of 2018

And there it was the moment when he laid there watching me intently as I removed all of the gunk from the barrel of the vacuum cleaner brush, wide eyed and bushy tailed as though it was the newest, coolest cartoon on the block.  It was in that moment that I realized this kid, this little miracle of ours was going to be something big.  

There are many things that J has of mine, my temper, my impatience, my knack for the dramatics, but what he has of his daddy's is the willingness to learn, the patience to figure it out, and the ability to shoot you a smile and flirtatious look that will have you weak in the knees.

Self Care with Day Trips in Galveston, Texas

You never realize how much being close to the ocean can make you feel relaxed regardless of if you never actually get in the water.  

I normally take day trips to Galveston to meet a couple of girlfriends up for business talks and food.  It is nice to be close to the water, enjoy some alone time and get a bit inspired at times.

I just needed some time.

I just needed some time.

After everything that was going on in my personal life, I definitely needed a break from everything. I wish I could’ve fit in a vacation from life but with a family that is not something that you can do.

Instead, I took a step back from my blog and a little bit of social media and it helped tremendously. I also took a refreshing instagram class from my dear friend Stacy Anderson that helped me feel much better about the path about this blog.
