This past weekend we had the opportunity to spend the weekend at the newest luxury hotel in Houston, the Hotel Alessandra, for a little holiday staycation to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Did you know I never knew about staycations until I became a mom? Let’s face it, when you have kids it is hard to get away for long periods of time, especially finding someone to watch your child for longer than a weekend. But sometimes as parents you just need a weekend to getaway and recharge, and just focus on your other half. Staycations are perfect for those moments, whether it be for your anniversary, just because, or in our case a weekend away to celebrate my husband’s 30th birthday. Today I am sharing all about our luxurious weekend at the Hotel Alessandra and the perfect outfit for a night out on the town.
Happy Monday everyone!
Today I am excited to share our holiday travel plans plus this travel essential gift guide and GIVEAWAY with Lipault Paris. Next week after Christmas our family will be headed for a fun family road trip with our in-laws to New Mexico and Colorado for a week. We will actually be ringing in the New Year in Colorado! This is our first ever holiday vacation with Jayden and our first time in Colorado and New Mexico. We can’t wait to be going with Josh’s family too. When Josh was a kid he had fond memories of family road trip with his family so we are keeping the tradition alive with Jayden. Plus it will be such a beautiful trip with the mountains and snow. So whether you are taking a road trip, or flying somewhere special, or know someone who loves to travel here is my travel essentials gift guide that is perfect for Christmas!
I am so excited to share my New York Fashion Week Travel Guide for Bloggers on a budget. I was very fortunate to be able to work with some amazing brands that for five days, including flight, outfits, photography, hotel, food, transportation, I was able to do everything for under $1000. As a mom and business owner I wanted to make sure it made sense for my business as well as stayed in my budget. Today I am sharing all my tips and tricks with you and how I was able to have an amazing first New York Fashion Week for bloggers on a budget.
Today I am sharing the last day of my New York Fashion Week recap. I can’t believe it’s almost been a month since I was there. It still all seems so surreal to me, but I just finished my video recap (you can watch here) and it was in fact very much REAL, and one of the best experiences of my life. Today I’m going to share my last day at NYFW and the perfect fall outfit I took at the Flatiron and running around the city.
Hey guys, today I am sharing one of my favorite photoshoots at New York Fashion week with this beautiful cut out chiffon dress on top of the Rock. I am picking up from my last post to share one of my favorite days in New York City. The day where I got to be a tourist and check off so many things off of my NYC traveler bucket list including being on top of the Rock and getting this gorgeous view of the Empire State building! Read more below!
Happy Labor Day!
For those who follow my Instagram and watch my Instagram then you might already know I am headed to New York Fashion Week this week! It has been a crazy whirlwind of a month, as I didn’t even plan on going. I think I would have felt super guilty for leaving my family if it wasn’t a work related trip with everything that’s been going on down here in Houston. Plus unless you have sponsors, it gets pretty pricey to go with clothes and travel expenses. Well long story short last month probably the end of July I started getting invites and offers from PR companies and brands I worked with for NYFW. I was fortunate to have my outfits sponsored for NYFW and to be able to work with an amazing hotel and restaurants for my NYFW City guide. I’m also excited to have an opportunity to work with some top beauty brands and share behind the scene looks for the runway shows. I will be sharing the full schedule details in the next post. But today I want to share what I am wearing to NYFW and 3 tips for staying organized while packing.

Finally sharing our last and final travel guide with you of our vacation. We visited old friends in Jupiter, Florida and had such an amazing time. What I love about Jupiter, Florida is it is a hidden gem on the west coast. Known for its high-profile celebrity residents, the best PGA golfing, and beautiful serene beaches, this is the town you visit when you want to escape from the touristy areas of Florida. This is where you can enjoy a relaxing vacation on a private beach and escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life and feel at home in this quaint little beach town. Check out more of our wonderful vacation to Jupiter, Florida in this complete travel guide below!
Thank you Disney World for partnering up with me this post. As always all thoughts and opinions are mine alone. Thank you for supporting those who support this blog.
Alright guys so here is the second travel guide of our trip this past month. We had the opportunity to partner up with Disney for a fun-filled day with our family visiting the Magic Kingdom and the Animal Kingdom. We picked those two parks because they were my favorite the last time I went, and the most kid friendly for Jayden, meaning we would have plenty opportunities to meet Mickey! Plus we only had one day so we didn’t want to over exert ourselves. We really enjoyed our time and honestly we couldn’t have asked for a better first trip to Disney with Jayden. I mean as a mom you always fear the worse, meaning complete breakdowns in the park with an over exhausted in patient toddler, but we were lucky that day, because non of that happened. Honestly I can attribute a lot of that to careful planning and these tips here. Here are 11 Tips for a Day at Disney with a Toddler.
This month if I’ll be sharing all about our road trip and tips and tricks with traveling with a toddler. It really was such an amazing vacation, and very relaxing to unplug, connect with my family, and enjoy our surroundings. Now to be fair we only have one kiddo and for the most part he was very entertained just being outside and playing in the pool or at the beach. So let’s get back to the road trip, yep 36 hours on the road with our little guy and we survived. Haha I’m being dramatic when I say survived because we had a great time on the road. So what did Jayden do the whole time while we drove with no iPad or iPhone to entertain him? Well let me tell you. Here are some tips and tricks to an iPad/iPhone free road trip with a toddler.
