Today I am so excited to share one of my favorite collaborations to date. Last year I was nominated by my friend and fellow blogger Authentically B to be a model for A Couture Cause 2018 Trend Guide. The 2018 Trend Guide is a collaboration with Houston’s best designers and boutiques to feature their top picks for the coming year showcased on our incredible group of local models – real fashionistas of Houston nominated for their style and commitment to philanthropy. It was an incredible honor to be part of this collaboration benefiting the Youth Hope Association, and A Shelter for Cancer Families. A Couture Cause raised over $75,000 for those in need this year and through their trend guide, a coffee table fashion book inspired by the latest trends. Check out my first feature publication below and how you can get your hands on this years 2018 Trend Guide.
Today I officially turn thirty: Thirty and Thriving. I can’t believe how time flies. Never in a million years I would have imagined this is where my life would be. I never thought I would find a man who treats me like a Queen, or be a mom to the most wonderful little human in the world, and best yet to be able to pursue my dreams through blogging. In fact I didn’t even know what blogging was when I started this site. I started merely as a new mom trying to document and capture every moment of my new bundle of joy and the journey of motherhood. But today, three years later it has become so much more. I am beyond blessed in every way to be where I am today, to be surrounded by the most loving family and friends, and to be able to share this little passion project of mine and inspire others to be the best version of themselves. After a year of delving in the YouTube world and sharing little successes on the way, I am finally ready to tell my story. I hope you take the time to watch this three-minute video, and it would mean so much if you subscribed to my channel. My goal is to reach a thousand subscribers this year. Please help me make my dream come true. Thank you so much for following along with me on this journey and welcome to the next chapter. Read more of what I look forward to in my 30’s and never before seen family photos below!
Hey guys! Hope ya’ll are having a great week! I know I said on Instastories I would share my tips on what has helped me be successful with the Liketoknow.it, so today I am sharing my top twelve tips with you. As a blogger Liketoknow.it is my main source of affiliate income, and one way I make money as a blogger. I have been with Liketoknow.it for three years now, and I didn’t really start making sales till almost a year in. It was because of my consistency and building trust with my followers that my sales grew. I’ve had the opportunity to hang out with Liketoknow.it last year at NYFW, and recently did a sponsored post with them with Ulta. I love being part of this growing community of influencers with Liketoknow.it, and I hope these tips help you become more successful. Read more below!

Happy Monday everyone! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Today I teamed up with Zappos X Easy Spirit to share my tips on dressing for success, tips I shared as a guest speaker for Phi Mu Fraternity at Houston Baptist last week. As a Phi Mu alumna I loved being able to connect with all the wonderful Phi Mu ladies and hopefully inspire them to be the best version of themselves. I remember my college days and the uncertainty that comes with trying to figure out who you are, what to study, and what you wanted to do after college. Dressing for success may not be a college course I took, but it was a valuable lesson I learned being part of Phi Mu. To this day it has been an integral part in what I do today as a lifestyle blogger. Check out my tips on dressing for success and how it keeps me moving and striving for my goals.

Happy Wednesday everyone!
Today my handsome hubby is guest starring on today’s blog as we share our favorite budget friendly daytime date ideas with Zappos x Rockport. As parents we don’t always get the luxury to having the night out to ourselves, or the unlimited budget we use to have before becoming parents. But that doesn’t stop us from getting a little creative on how we spend our alone time together. Even if it means having our dates during the day when the little guy is in school. Check out our 5 Budget Friendly Daytime Date Ideas, and our date outfit with our Rockport shoes from Zappos.
