Mother's Day gift ideas - gift box set.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. The older I get, the more I love and appreciate celebrating Mother’s Day and giving my mom the thanks and appreciation she deserves.  I know my mom would want nothing more than to have me come home each year during Mother’s Day weekend, but that’s not always possible.

Gift Guide: Mother’s Day Ideas

One of the main reasons people come to Dallas is for the shopping. And while we do have all the best big name stores, the local shops here in Dallas have my heart. I’ve compiled a list of my favorite small businesses to shop in Dallas, so next time you need a new outfit or […]

10 places to shop local in Dallas

I  think we all let out a big sigh of relief when the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve. I know that literally nothing has changed but it really feels like an accomplishment to say that we survived 2020. Here’s the thing though, 2020 was a turning point for me personally. It shed some […]

Setting Intentions for 2021

Christmas looks a whole lot different this year. Some traditions aren’t taking place, like pictures with Santa or ice skating downtown,  and of course holiday pop-ups and bar crawls look a whole lot different this year. But the holidays are always magical, regardless of the climate of our country.  So even though public events aren’t […]

It’s time to start prepping your menu for Thanksgiving! And what’s better than a holiday twist on a classic cocktail to wow everyone with?  Moscow Mules are by far one of my favorite drinks.

Perhaps my favorite closet staple of all time is a good graphic tee. I don’t think you could ever own too many because they are unique, and it’s an extra bonus that  you would rarely ever match your friends. And while my answer to almost every fashion-related question is “pair it with a graphic tee” […]

We are half-way through October and that means the count down to Halloween is on! While fall is forever my favorite season, I’ve really come to love the spooky vibes during the month of October. Scary movies, haunted houses with friends, and silly (sometimes gross) decorations? I can get on board with that. Of course […]

Spooky Season

One of my all time favorite cities is Austin, TX. I  mean, what’s not to love? Food trucks everywhere, lots of outdoor activities, so many funky local businesses, food trucks, good coffee, Matthew Mcconaughey lives there… Did I mention the food trucks? Since ATX is only 3 hours away from me, I go whenever I […]

City Guide: Austin, TX

Since 2020 was NOT our year for traveling, many of us have resorted to making the most of our own towns. The only problem is that usually we wind up going to the same rotation of restaurants, grabbing coffee at the same place or shopping at the same stores, which makes your free time feel […]

How to Explore Your Own City

This past week I flew from Dallas to LA, a trip I’ve taken more times than I can count. But this time was so different – for obvious reasons – because of COVID-19. I’m not one to get nervous before getting on a plane, but I’ll be honest, I  was flat out scared to take […]
