Texas Renaissance Festival

Richard and I took a trip to Todd Mission Texas to experience the Texas Renaissance Festival for the first time. It's been on my bucket list since I was 14 and I finally did it!

Three new gorgeous pieces of jewelry have made their way into my life and I'm really happy about that.

Three Ingredient Pancakes

These pancakes are a personal favorite of mine. If you haven't seen the BuzzFeed video that was floating around for awhile then read and watch this so you can taste your own. You won't be sorry!

Urban Inspired

When I say Urban Inspired I mean it in two ways. The majority of my outfit is from Urban Outfitters but I also wanted to style a look that was appropriate for a hot summer in the city. A lot of the pieces in my wardrobe have been purchased from UO. Partly because everything in that store is to die for, but mostly because working there for 3 years will do that to a persons wardrobe.

VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Mask

For the past couple of weeks I have been trying out the VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Mask. I was promised happy under eyes and yes, they are smiling. The VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Mask helps to eliminate dark circles and fine lines by using advanced aerobic skin care technology as well as original ecological plant oxygen extracts.

Thin Tea - Does it work?

The kind people of Thin Tea recently contacted me and asked if I'd like to try some of their tea! I was a little hesitant at first because when it comes to the things I put in and on my body I want to make sure it can only benefit me. They reassured me that everything about this tea is natural and there is no dairy, gluten, preservatives, additives, caffeine or laxatives and to top it off, it's vegan friendly! It hasn't quite been the full 28 days but in just a little over a week I'm noticing crazy results..

DIY Floral Crown

Who says you need a festival to wear a crown of flowers? The summer heat mixed with thoughts of fall has got me feeling inspired and a little magical. I was on the Urban Outfitters website looking at some of their accessories and saw a flower headband for $20. Tempting.. but why not have some fun making my own crown?

Flare at The Monterey

Today Richard and I met some of our friends for brunch at a restaurant called The Monterey. Neither of us had been so we were eagerly awaiting 11 o'clock to roll around. I was pleasantly surprised to see the restaurant had a retro vibe because I was channeling the 70's today.

In your body is a good place to be

With the way the world is now days it’s sometimes hard to remember who you are deep down and what you find beautiful about yourself. At least.. for me it is. While I was attending my first year at community college I had a professor that taught math or something but all his lectures had to do with philosophical ideas. I didn’t like him much but one thing he said stuck with me. He said, “Can you really look into the mirror at the end of the day and see yourself? Your true self all bullshit aside.

Lamps are expensive but this one isn't! I've always loved the look of glass bottle lamps but every time I flip around the price tag they always seem to be way out of my price range. The great thing about making your own lamp is you can choose any base and lampshade to make it fit your space perfectly. My boyfriend and I thrifted this old water jug and found the lamp shade on sale at Target.

Army Green + Spring

I threw together this outfit on a whim and mostly because I wanted to wear my new vest from TJ Max and still be able to feel a breeze somehow. I've never owned a vest and have always associated them with the colder months so styling it was a bit of a challenge but I think I came out successful!

May Ipsy Glam Bag

A new month means more Ipsy and I could not be happier with May's bag!

I was most excited to try out the Peter Lamas natural detoxifying facial cleanser because I'm always searching for a cleanser that leaves me clean but not dry. The citrus completely sold me on this because there's nothing better than..

A Day With The Dogs

Meet Crosby and Olive! Crosby is our little weasel of a dog. He earned his nick name by always weaseling his way between Richard and I whenever we're hugging and pestering every guest that comes over until they hold him. He's addicted to love but that's okay because we love to love him!

The Hamsa Hand is known as a symbol of protection in many societies and is believed to provide defense against the evil eye. Hamsa comes from the word khamsah meaning five in Arabic. I think there's something so beautiful about cultures different than my own and embracing all the wonderful things the people of the world have to offer.

Elisha Marie Jewelry

I have been obsessed with my new Siren II ring from Elisha Marie Jewelry for the past 24 hours. It was an early iloveyou day gift from my boyfriend Richard. I had my eye on it for a couple months and thanks to Pinterest he knew exactly what to surprise me with.

Enchanted Rock

These rocks, they're enchanted! I had one of the most magical weekends spent out in Fredericksburg Texas with my boys. Almost everyone I know has been to Enchanted Rock State Park except for me so it was on my list of places to see. These massive domes are made of pink granite (the stuff people pay a lot of money to use as countertops). Enchanted rock rises a whopping 1,825 feet (556 m) above sea level. What a view!

e.l.f. eyes lips face

The other day I was browsing the cosmetics section inside Target and ended up picking up a few elf products I thought could add a little something to my makeup collection. I've never tried the brand elf but was attracted to the price and now I'm a fan! These are some of the products I've been using & loving.

DIY | Necklace Holder

This is what I came up with! I needed a quick solution for my tangled necklaces and wanted to upgrade my thumbtack stuck in the wall to something a little nicer.

Bakery Lorraine At the Pearl

Nothing says casual Sunday like some worn out blue jeans! Richard and I got our coffee and macaroon fix at one of my new favorite spots in San Antonio. I've heard so much about Bakery Lorraine at the Pearl so I had to check it out for myself..

Poteet, Tx

Last weekend my boyfriend Richard and I had the opportunity to play a part in a music video for our friends from the band Ready Revolution. We traveled to Poteet Texas and spent the weekend experiencing what it's like to be actors! Well, we didn't actually have lines to remember but I still felt the pressure. It's weird when you actually pay attention to things like walking in a straight line or getting out of a car. I don't know how movie stars do it with such ease!

Kale Smoothie

The thought of veggies in drink form has always kind of weirded me out but this smoothie tastes so delightful! It's not only extremely healthy and filling but leaves you completely energized. Perfect for breakfast or a sweet treat throughout the day.
