So, this weekend I planned my first bachelorette Party for Vivian! I am the Maid of Honor, yay! Let me tell you, It was the most stressful yet most fun time ever and I want to share with you how to plan a staycation bachelorette party with your girls. So, of course, I was pretty new at this and did so much research and kind of put different ideas together.
Hotel or Air BNB it
Depending on what you’re doing. We rented an Airbnb close to the city and had a mini party. We decorated the whole apartment with bachelorette decor. It is easy for everyone to spend the night together and not have to worry about driving because you know what happens at a bachelorette, hehe! Plus, it is like a staycation.
Food & Drinks
Everyone brought a food tray and snacks. My favorite part was the Chic-fil-a nuggets, haha! YUMMY! It just makes everything so much easier and saves time for the party set up. Cupcakes are from Doole’s Baking Co and they were amazingly delicious. We ordered Almond Raspberry and Chocolate. I definitely recommend! I made a Fizzy Pineapple alcohol beverage and it was amazing! Here is the recipe.
– One 12 oz of Frozen can Pineapple Juice Concentrate thawed
– One 6 oz of Frozen can Lemonade concentrate thawed
– Four 1/2 cups of cold water
– 1 Liter of club soda
– Assorted fruits such as pineapple, blueberries, strawberries, lime, and raspberries.
– Garnishes such as fresh mint
I am going to make this easy breezy! Slice up pineapple, lime, and strawberries & literally, pour everything in a punch bowl. Pour liquor amount of your choice (drink responsibly) haha. Taa daa! DONE!

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.

Merry Christmas lovelies!!!
It is the time of the year where we spend time with our loved ones, eat, sing Christmas carols, and open gifts. Every year my family gets together and has dinner on Christmas Eve at my grandmother’s house and talk about how the year flew by and remanence on our memories and I love It. At midnight we gather in the living room and count down until midnight and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and get ready too open gifts. It is insanely hard getting a huge family together to open gifts and get organized but I couldn’t be happier to have a big family to spend the holidays with. This is my favorite time of the year.
Today, on Christmas Day I was cozy in my Lively Deep V No-Wire Bra. Let me tell you, this whole no wire deal is a game changer when It comes to lounging around that I had to share with y’all. I am totally with the movement of ‘Leissurée’ another category and point of view of lingerie by yours truly, Lively.

It’s Halloween weekend and it is starting to feel like fall here in Dallas. We are usually behind when it comes to wearing all of the cute fall clothes. I am so excited to share one of my favorite looks with you so far this season; it is my favorite time of the year. Bring on pumpkin flavored everything because I am all about it.
I am loving the color schemes this season. This knit sweater coat makes the perfect cardigan/ coat because you can layer up or wear it as a light cardigan. It is versatile when wearing colored or regular denim, dresses, and tights.
I am obsessed with this burgundy BP tote. It makes a good pop of color this season and it goes with any warm colors. It makes the perfect on-the-go tote. It fits my MacBook when I got to school; perfect size. I have the tan color from spring also and it is now marked down (45% off).
I mean, who doesn’t love Bauble Bar’s tassel earrings?
Let’s talk about my favorite flats! These Tory Burch ‘Minnie’ travel ballet flats are the best pair of flats I own and they come in so many colors. They are so comfortable and long-lasting. I’ve had them for almost two years and they are still great and they are easy to take anywhere because they can easily fold into a bag.
How cute is this BP suede ball cap? It is perfect for any outfit and even better for bad hair days. Thank goodness for hats.
Can’t wait to share more fall looks with Y’all. Have a Happy Halloween!

Happy Saturday, everyone!!! I am thrilled to be back home just in time for the J.Crew launch at Nordstrom Galleria at Dallas, today in Point of View. I am loving this striped button-up top. It is lightweight and goes perfectly with any denim, like this skirt I paired it with. We also got in cute accessories that I added to the look. I wanted to go with a pink accent, so I added a large leather pink clutch to get a more fun look.

Here in Texas we started spring early and get to enjoy the nice weather before most. I am traveling to Utah next week where it is not so springy. It is still snowing there and it is 80 degrees here. Meanwhile, I cannot stop shopping for spring clothes when I should be shopping for winter clothes for my trip. I am so excited for spring I picked out one of my favorite looks.
This is one of my favorite dresses in Top Shop right now. It is so cute and it literally yells spring. It fits perfectly and slim. I normally do not like wearing printed tops or dresses because they make me look weird but this one is so cute and flattering. The silhouette is gorgeous. I have it paired up with a super cute brown Sole Society bag.
Panacea always has the cutest jewelry. I love the colors on these earrings. I noticed this year’s spring color trends are baby blue and pink, how cute?
These Donald J Pliner Metallic Cork Wedges are to die for. They are unbelievably comfortable and go with almost anything. They also have the extra memory foam for support and you can last in them all day.
