What do I love about JORD? I love that their watches are customizable. I got my name engraved and it can definitely make a great personal piece or even a gift to someone special. You can make it as unique as you would like. & that is another reason why it is my must-have.

JORD not only caters to ladies but also men. I’ve been wearing my wooden watch since I got it in the mail and my boyfriend immediately asked me about it. He is about to order the Frankie Ebony & Gold watch. Now it is something he can’t stop talking about, haha. I am totally on board though, I love it.

How I Conquer My Day – Conquer Coffee

How I Conquer My Day – Conquer Coffee

Hello Hello!

Oops, I almost said happy Wednesday but it is only Tuesday & it is raining… I hate when that happens, but who am I kidding? Everyday is always rough for me, haha nothing new. Coffee is the only thing that makes me feel alive besides my vitamins, of course. Here is how I conquer my day.

I make a fresh cup of coffee every day and I officially found my new favorite, Conquer Coffee. I love that they have a lot to offer. From a single flavor coffee bag, variety/ single flavor pods. You can go from light to dark roast with all the same rich taste. I am always on the go and this is the perfect way to get the best quality cup of coffee instantly, even right at your doorstep. Conquer has prepaid options where you can pay ahead and get a box every month. How awesome is that? AMAZING! It is the only coffee company on the market that lets you choose what you want in your box sent right to you. You can also get 20% off your first order.

Conquer Coffee was founded in Dallas, TX in 2017 by Stephen Nix. He is a young and brilliant man behind this great idea. His Goal – “Stephen wanted to create a variety-based coffee that could tailor to the individual and offer each customer a superior way to fuel their day—and their life.” says Conquer Coffee’s Website, and so far a success!

My Way of Relaxing – Mythology

My Way of Relaxing – Mythology

Who else loves having a relaxing day or night in? I know I do. Relaxing to me is a time where I am worry free and not as tense. My way of relaxing is throwing on loose fitting clothes and lighting up my favorite all natural candles by Mythology. Mythology is based in Richardson, TX right outside of Dallas. I stumbled across their page through Richardson Living, one of my favorite pages I follow. They post all of the best food places/ events near me since I live in the area.

Maria, the owner/ founder of Mythology does such a great job with her candles. They are known for being “Rooted in Nature ➕ Minimalist, vegan soy candles ➕ Hand-poured ➕ Small batch”, says their Instagram page. I am obsessed with the Flora English Rose + Birchwood scent. It is light and fresh, perfect for the spring season. If you love the smell of flowers you are going to be obsessed just as much as I am. This candle contains fresh cut roses and sweet, woodsy undertones of birchwood, cypress, and tonka beans. I am also an essential oil freak and love turning on my diffuser in my apartment and lighting this candle up does the same trick, I love it.

You can find their candles on Etsy and all of their pop up shots are listed on HERE.

Have a great week & I love reading your comments.

My Top Crawfish Spots in Dallas

My Top Crawfish Spots in Dallas

One thing I look forward to most this time of year is crawfish. I am Catholic and it is the time to fast. I really enjoy Lent because I get to challenege myself yet replicate the sacrifices Jesus went through for 40 days. Every Friday I am going to be eating seafood until Easter Sunday. In honor of that I wanted to share a few seafood spots that are my favorite here in the Dallas-Fort Worth area that are definitely worth trying considering that it is that time of the year, yay! I could eat crawfish everyday & nothing is better than eating it off the gulf coast but I have some great places for y’all locally.

One. Hookline – Plano // Two. The Boiling Crab – Richardson // Three. Rocking Crab – Dallas // Four. Shell Shack – Uptown // Five. Aw Shucks – Lower Greenville

If you do happen to go to these spots be sure to tag me on Instagram @maryyalexiuss. I want to see what you eat maybe I will try it next time. 😉 Also, if I missed any great spots please comment below. I would love to try.

A Chic Valentine’s Day (Outfit & Date Ideas) / Going into Spring

A Chic Valentine’s Day (Outfit & Date Ideas) / Going into Spring

Hey, loves!

Wow, I feel like yesterday we were saying Happy New Year and now we are moving onto Valentine’s Day. Next thing you know It will be spring. I am just ready for daylight savings but I can’t get ahead of myself, lol. Valentine’s Day is a holiday you either hate or love. Singles are the grinch of this holiday (I am guilty) then you have the couples that go on dates and the boyfriend showers their girlfriend with red roses. Single ladies, get your girls together and have a Galentines. Those are always so much fun. On the blog today I want to share my favorite look and a few ideas to do for Valentine’s Day.

Here are a few Valentine’s Day ideas for my Dallas babes

  • The Alamo Draft House is screening My Bloody Valentine at 9pm on the 14th. [LINK]
  • What is better than spending your Valentine’s Day at the beautiful Dallas Arboretum? The garden will be open until 7pm. Grab your baskets and have a romantic picnic viewing White Rock Lake.
  • Top Golf is one of my favorite places to get drinks, relax, and look like a goof ball hitting golf balls. Great for kicks and giggles, lol.
  • You can never go wrong with a Brazilian Steak House unless you’re vegan. I love me some steak.
  • I am a little salty that Ash Wednesday lands on Valentine’s Day because I was looking forward to a huge steak… So, sushi it is. Uchi never disappoints. I could eat sushi everyday.
  • Plan a romantic night in. Maybe you go out to eat a lot and you want to stay home and cook a nice meal? I mean I don’t blame you. I eat out almost everyday, lol.
  • Love is in the air. The Reunion Tower is offering a package for this romantic day. Get your tickets here.
