Those of you who know me personally, know that I am not much for getting dolled up for a night around the town. UGH. Even in my 20s, so not my thing!! I would so much rather be enjoying the company of my best girls in the comfort of my own home, in a cozy dress (albeit with makeup), chatting and laughing, and enjoying cocktails, music, and Netflix!! And of course because I am fully embracing French culture—this post is all about giving you some ideas to host your very own girls night in for your fellow Francophiles. I have compiled a French TV show list, as well as a French playlist, anddd the most delish simple recipe for a lavender margarita!! This is the perfect summer cocktail for when you’re feeling french, but your Texas twang can’t quite be subdued!!! I am even sharing a little DIY for a lavender face and body scrubRead More
We are soon welcoming summer…my goodness, where is the year going my friends??!
When I think about this season, I of course immediately think of the 4th of July. It was my grandparents absolute favorite holiday and we had plenty of BBQs and poolside parties. Everyone was slathered in sunscreen and chlorine and there was a joyous feeling of celebration in the air and all day the star spangled banner flew proudly in every direction. Of course you cannot forget the stunning fireworks lighting up the sky above! It was always such a special experience sharing that day with so many proud, patriotic Americans roaming the streets celebrating. So many beautiful summers and I will always cherish these memories of my childhood. My fave part about living in the desert in El Paso was that every sunset at the very moment that the sun disappeared over the horizon, everyone watching on would cheer and clap as the last millimeter of sun dropped behind the mountains.
Grandpa Kelsey would fire up the grill and I already what we would be having in our picnic basket. What is summer without this American Icon anyway?? You know what I am talking about….cook up a delicious patty of beef and sandwich it between two buttery buns…..Read More
Yes, I know, I’ve been traveling an awful lot recently, I can barely keep up myself.
But when the invitation arrives in my inbox to spend a weekend in Bentonville, discovering their music scene, how can I possibly say no?! I am a girl who loves a good road trip and some good music.
I have visited Bentonville numerous times but this city is rapidly changing every month and now, with my photographer’s eye, I couldn’t wait to return to see the city in all its glory - from the quaint square, the great food and drink scene, the exploding music scene and its many museums. A weekend in Bentonville is a great idea and couldn’t be easier to do, especially for those of living in Oklahoma and Texas! I mean it’s a quick one hour and forty five minute drive for me which is so easy breezy. And it’s only five hours from the BIG D!Read More
Memphis is somewhere that I really wanted to spend some time exploring. I had been there once before when I was 17 but that doesn’t even count. And Lin had never been before and I had a feeling he would really enjoy the rich history. I also really wanted to see one of my favorite Frenchie bands Phoenix play as they booked a stop in Memphis for Mempho Fest, a two day music festival. Being such a music lover since as long as I can remember, I just had to experience one of the most musically charged cities in the country. Being a foodie too I also needed to get my hands on some of this Memphis style BBQ! So when I reached out to the lovely Memphis Travel team to experience all that Memphis has to offer-well we made it happen! This post was in collaboration with them and I hope that it will make you consider exploring more of our beautiful world here in The U.S.!Read More
So I just found the raddest ad-free, subscription-based app service that allows me to listen to music, read magazines and (soon) watch visual content in one app!
And every time you listen to a song in the WEYV app they will make a charitable donation. Say whaaaaat??!Read More
ou know time is flying by when you can't remember the last time you had Sunday brunch and you guys---that is just NOT acceptable. The thing is, I can't quite think what I've been doing with my weekends instead which is also NOT acceptable. I sorta feel like I need to renounce my title of 'avid bruncher' to you guys however, I'm hoping this post will redeem myself. I even decided to write it early and dedicate the whole thing to brunch VS my weekend guide to OKC so that's gotta earn me some credit here.
So darlings---let's brunch so hard in OKC!!!Read More
So – you know I am the biggest sucker for a US road trip with my sweetie. For my birthday this year all I wanted to do was hit the road in our vintage Porsche and travel. Somewhere in one of my past lives I must have fallen in love en route because I know that is where my heart is happiest.Read More
I hope you all have been having a great time following along with my newest fitness journey over on my Insta Stories. I have been taking reformer Pilates classes at Club Pilates here in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the last three weeks. And I am having the best time, even better than expected! I had always been so intimidated with the thought of pilates and now I am just kicking myself because I wish I had been doing it my whole life. I was desperately looking for a workout like this....and am now a die-hard pilate enthusiast.Read More

It has been ages since I have published a Q & A and I am so thrilled to get back in the swing of things with one of my fave categories here on Go French Yourself with none other than the talented Darku J.
I have always had a thing for electronica music, ever since high school. I grew up on the border in a desert surrounded by mountains in a place called El Paso. Maybe you have heard of it?Read More
