I am back after a much needed break for Spring Break. Honestly I was so exhausted with my son off school for a week, and my husband gone for work I didn’t have time to work on my blog. But I am back and today I am sharing something personal that happened to me that I hope can shed light on an issue that negatively affect us on social media. A couple weeks ago I posted a workout video that was advertised through Instagram. I had people comment on my post saying things like I looked anorexic, I needed to eat, and I was too thin to workout. Very false assumption that many people have about anorexia and fitness. Body shaming is a prevalent issue on social media, and there are so many misleading misconception about “health” and how “healthy looks”. I sat there thinking what I wanted to reply back to the comment, but then I realized this…
Hope you had a great weekend! Today I finally get to share a secret I have been keeping from you and something I am so thankful for. This year has provided us with so many blessings and so many things to be thankful for. This year I get the opportunity to continue as part of 2019 #DSWSTYLESQUAD for DSW with ladies from all over the U.S. Last year I had the privilege of being part of this amazing squad with some of my best girl friends from Houston. It was one of the most amazing opportunities of my life. Being able to continue another year with such an amazing company that believes in me and my business is truly a humbling experience. But regardless of the big milestones, the new opportunities there is so much to be thankful for in our everyday life. Today I wanted to share a prayer with you about living life in gratitude. Something I strive to live by everyday regardless of life’s circumstances, and something I hope to continue to bring into the new year. Read more below:
Hope you had a great week! Sorry I’ve been MIA this week, but we just closed on our new house this week and have been so busy moving in! It’s been one crazy whirlwind journey with this new home because the process literally happened in less than a month! We found this home, fell in love, and in three weeks we close. And in between then we have been busy trying to get everything ready to move plus clear out of our old house. We are also in the process of remodeling the kitchen in our new house so its been non stop. But I’m finally getting to your request for an empty house tour. So check it out and read more on why we chose this home to be our new home to grow our family in!

Hope you are doing well! Today I wanted to share my results and review of my 14 Great Hair Day Challenge with Pantene. I love Pantene and have been using their shampoo and conditioner since I was a child. So when they reached out to me to join the challenge, I happily agreed. I wanted to say goodbye to a bad hair day and say hello to a great hair day because we all know how much having a bad hair day can really effect your day. As someone with very thick, coarse and sometimes frizzy hair with this Texas humidity I decided to use the Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner. This hydrating shampoo and conditioner is specifically made to moisturize dry and frizzy hair. Check out my results of my Pantene 14 Day Challenge below!
Hope you had a great weekend! Today I’m sharing with you one of my favorite winter coats I took with me to NYC and Colorado. I got this faux fur collar coat as Christmas present and I get so many compliments every time I wear it. Best part is its under $100. Check out this faux fur collar coat below and how I styled it in Colorado. You can also see how I wore it to NYFW here.
Hope you are having a great week! Can you believe Valentine’s is tomorrow? I swear this month has flown by. Today I wanted to share with you a fun Galentine’s Sprinkle Brunch we threw for our expecting friend Michelle. If you don’t know what a sprinkle is, it is basically a smaller intimate baby shower for a mom who is expecting her second or third child. Basically an excuse to celebrate such a wonderful blessing in our friend’s life. This Galentine’s sprinkle wouldn’t have been successful without the help from each one of these girls. Everyone contributed their own special touch which made it that much more special. So if you are looking to throw a Galentine’s Sprinkle here are some tips for hosting a Galentine’s Sprinkle Brunch!
I am back from NYFW. It was a short three day trip and totally worth it. I was able to visit some of my favorite PR companies and brands and get to see some amazing runway shows. This was my third NYFW and my first going in February. Thankfully we were at the Sheraton Tribeca which was less than a five minute walk to the shows and Soho, so we didn’t have to face the cold winds for too long. Today I am sharing a quick little recap plus sharing what I packed in my carryon to NYFW. Everyone including myself was impressed that I packed five outfits for three days in one carryon. And on top of that I did it literally six hours before my flight. One of the reasons why I wanted to just take a carryon was because I had a meeting I had to be at right after I got off the plane, and I didn’t want to wait for my checked in bag. Plus I saved $60 by just bringing a carryon. So if you want to know my secret, check out my 5 TIPS FOR PACKING A CARRYON FOR NYFW below!
Hope you had a great weekend! Hubs and I finished our first half marathon this weekend. It was one of our fitness goals last year and we were finally to accomplish it this year. It was definitely hard to train during the holidays and in the winter when it’s so cold. But we came up with some different alternatives to keep motivate and finishing the race was such a great feeling. So if you are in a slump when it comes to your fitness goals during the winter, here are some tips to keep you motivated.
Hope ya’ll are having a great week! Today I am getting a little personal and sharing with you my first experience getting botox and my honest opinion. I honestly feel like it is important to share my thoughts because it is a subject that is kept under the radar. Like plastic surgery, some people do not want to be open to sharing what they have or have not done. But as an influencer I feel it is important to share so you are educated, empowered on the subject, but also so don’t have this unrealistic perception of beauty. I’m thirty and also a mom and as I get older I am open to try new things to keep looking younger longer. But let’s face it, botox can get expensive. Botox can cost hundreds of dollars and can get expensive if you continuously do it. So is it worth it? I’m sharing my honest opinion and my before and after pictures in this video, plus sharing this gorgeous wrap dress that is perfect for the holidays. See more below!
