This and That

Ruffle Top: Asos | Jeans: Vigoss | Handbag: Saint Laurent | Watch: Michele | Shoes: Sam Edelman

I wore this outfit yesterday and got such great feedback so I figured I would post it here as well. I found this white ruffle top and figured it was a steal for only $40! It also comes in an apricot color and blue stripe. Super cute and so flattering!

Girls Dresses: HM

I made a quick stop into HM yesterday and found the cutest little dresses for Aviana for only $4.99! You guys, $4.99! I couldn't believe it when I saw the price. I thought it was a mistake at first! I grabbed every print I could find in her size!

Lip Color: Roseberry LipSense with Glossy Gloss (theperfectfacexo@gmail.com)

I know I have been slacking on blogging and Instagram but I have been so busy with LipSense! This has been such a fun adventure for me and I'm so lucky to have my beautiful sister Melanie as my business partner. If you would like to support us please follow our Facebook and Instagram pages. Also, if you are interested in becoming a distributor please feel free to message me. This has been one the funnest and most rewarding jobs I've ever had. I love that I can help bring in an income and still stay at home with my girls. I couldn't ask for anything better.

Pink Ruffle Top: Revolve | Red Floral Maxi Dress: TopShop | Sandals: Sam Edelman | Rose Gold Rings: Kendra Scott | Necklace: Bauble Bar | Sunnies: Quay | Blue Off-The-Shoulder Top: Nordstrom

I have been online shopping this morning trying to find outfits for an upcoming event that I will be attending in Austin. The W Hotel will be hosting a couple of "Instagrammers" and they have 2 days filled with lots of fun activities for us! My BFF blogger babe, Anna from The Styled Fox (@_anna_english), will be my roomie and we will be documenting our experience so please follow along!

Above are some of the items that I ordered for the event and I can't wait to get everything in to show you ladies! These sunnies have been on my wish list for quite some time and I'm so happy they are now back in stock! The second I spotted this baby blue off-the-shoulder top I just knew I had to have it. I have also been searching for a shorter heel (mama has the hardest time walking in high heels these days!) and thought these would be perfect to wear with all my summery outfits.

Last thing, I was featured in an article recently and I couldn't be more excited about it. When I saw that I was on the same list as Courtney Kerr and Camille Styles as one of the "Must-Follow Fashion Bloggers from Texas" I totally freaked out!

I know I say this all the time but I truly appreciate all of you and I thank you for all your support. Thank you so much for stopping by. ;)

Acai Bowl


Acai bowls have been my go-to snack lately. I had my first taste of acai a little over a year ago while vacationing in Miami. This was something new to me as I didn't really see much of it here in Texas. After sampling this delicious treat I came home and decided to make my own. I have been hooked ever since!

Here is how I make my acai bowl at home (makes 1 bowl):

Acai Bowl Ingredients:
1/2 frozen banana
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup raspberries
1/2 cup coconut water or almond milk

Toppings:
Granola
Banana
Blueberries
Raspberries
Honey

Directions:
1. Break the frozen acai up into chunks and place in blender.
2. Add all of the other ingredients (banana, peanut butter, blueberries, raspberries, coconut water).
3. Blend until smooth.
4. Pour in small bowl and add toppings as desired.
5. Drizzle with honey and enjoy!

The great thing about acai bowls is they are totally customizable. You can substitute coconut water for almond milk, honey for agave and change your toppings. Sometimes I use walnuts, chia seeds and/or coconut flakes for toppings.

Recent Purchases


We had two vacations planned recently so I FINALLY did a little shopping and found some great pieces that are both cute and versatile. These pink block heel shoes have been perfect to add a pop of color to my outfit. I am absolutely obsessed with them! This statement necklace has also been on repeat. It can make a simple top or dress come to life!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Hope you enjoy your day!
