Wow! Although some months were a little low on blog post count than others, I can happily say that this year has been a fantastic (and consistent) year of blogging for me.Read More
Here are some I've found around the web recently that I think you'd like.
1. Here's what a $29,000 Gucci dress looks like. Would you wear it?
2. NatGeo Travel released their "Best of the World" list for 2018 and my hometown made the list!
3. This Avocado Chicken Salad looks so good!
4. 7 books we lost to history that could've changed the world.
5. This map shows WiFi passwords for airports around the world. Never pay to log on while traveling again!
6. Get motivated and stay motivated by doing these things.
We all that one friend (or 5) who are completely obsessed with animals, more specifically, their own animals. Luckily, I've surrounded myself with some amazing women who adore their furry pets. Again, luckily, most of them are dog people... My two sisters are the only anomalies...Read More
I, unfortunately, do not have a strong DIY gene. I can make simple things, and enjoy the occasional home project or two, but the majority of the "visual creativity" belongs to my sisters and mom.Read More
I don't know what it is, but for some reason I have the hardest time finding gifts for friends and family. I feel like once the holidays roll around, I can't seem to find anything they'd like for within the budget we allotted for each other. That's why I rely heavily on "gift guides". It helps kick-start my brainstorm.Read More
I can officially get into the Christmas spirit now that Thanksgiving has come and gone. I'm a firm believer of waiting until after Thanksgiving to begin decorating for Christmas and listening to holiday music. Thanksgiving is such a fun holiday in it's own right that I think it needs a solid period of celebration, too.Read More
I'm blessed to have mostly all my extended family in the same city. It makes seeing everyone during the holidays pretty easy.
My family has always celebrated Thanksgiving at my parents house. When I was younger, I'd always look forward to waking up to the smell of Thanksgiving turkeys roasting in the oven that Thursday morning.Read More
The fact that I was even up and writing this the next day deserves some praise. I invited some gal pals over for a wine tasting party this weekend and before we knew it, it was 1:45 a.m. and we had about 7 empty bottles on the table. I got my happy butt into bad at 2 a.m. and WAS UP BY 6:30 a.m.! What the heck?? I basically napped...Read More
If you've been reading for a while, you know that my twin sis and I are a real estate team with JB Goodwin, REALTORS®. We joined forces to take on the South Texas real estate market and haven't looked back.Read More
I can have Tex-Mex food all day every day. I ADORE it. Really, I prefer the chip baskets the best, but tacos, enchiladas, queso: you name it, I love it. The problem: it so high in calories, saturated fat, and grease! Ugh.. sad.Read More
Las Vegas holds a special place in my heart. My twin and I celebrated our 21st birthday in Vegas. J and I got engaged at the top of the Stratosphere Hotel. In fact, the very first trip we took to Vegas we stayed at the Mandalay Bay Hotel.Read More
I spend a lot of my Sundays prepping for the week ahead. Some weeks I'm working, while other weeks I'm meal prepping, cleaning and doing laundry. You can tell, it's hardly ever a "day of rest" for me, but when I do get an hour or two to finally relax, I love browsing Pinterest for amazing locations to one day visit.Read More
Your skin is one of the most important organs on your body! It protects your inner organs, helps give regulate your body temperature, and contributes to your first impression.
I'm lucky to come from a family of women with amazing skin. My Nana, who will be turning the big 9-0 later this year (sorry Nana!), often gets mistaken for being 30 years younger.Read More
J and I are headed out to the Sunshine State for the last "hoorah" of the summer. I'm luck enough to have grown up traveling. My parents have always been huge advocates for exploring new (but warm) places and would take my sisters and I along whenever they could.Read More
The older I get the more anxiety I have about a lot of things. I have fear about not being able to do everything I want to do in life, about losing someone or something close to me, about missing out on other things people my age are doing or succeeding at. It's true, I have self-diagnosed anxiety with a swallow of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out).Read More
As a freelance digital marketer & now a REALTOR®, I've had the luxury of working on my own schedule since I graduated from college. Don't get me wrong- I've definitely had jobs where I was required to be in an office for certain hours of the day. I know the pain, but I've definitely been lucky that my pain has been short-lived.Read More
I definitely don't feel older. In fact, I still feel 20 at heart, but this past Sunday (Father's Day to be exact), my twin and I celebrated our 27th birthday. I've mixed feelings about this as we are slowly creeping closer to the big ol' 3-0. However, we're still a few years off and I'm doing my best to soak in my 20s for as long as I can by doing things I've never done before.Read More
