We can be addicted to many things and the older I get..I become more and more addicted to comfort!! And I don’t mean the comforts of home. Although being able to watch pretty much whatever you want on a laptop from your bed is pretty dang comfortable… I’m talking about sneakers! My stiletto days have become a thing of the past..all though don’t get me wrong I still love them so much but there is a time and place! And lately that right place is sitting looking pretty at an event. LOL! But seriously, it’s true.
I am all about comfy chic sneakers right now! My dogs are barking and I finally listened!
I love exploring a city I’m visiting and capturing its essence. When I travel somewhere new, or if I want to play tourist in my own city, I like to find the best spots to take pictures. I so look forward to really capturing all the hot spots in all the cities I travel to and sharing them with you so you can also capture some amazing photos for your Insta grid. And we know it's for Instagram, right?! Laugh out loud.
So there are some people who never feel the urge to leave the house . They’re completely content to stay in the city they came from and literally just float in the 360 degrees that surround them. And then there’s the rest of us who can’t sit still . We have a love for travel and curiosity. We love taking risks, exploring new places, ideas, and foods. We even live for the day trips hitting that big magical open road exploring our own cities .Read More
Do you know about Lucy Michel?!
She is one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram right now!
Lucy Michel is an artist born and raised in Los Angeles, her aesthetic is Modern Californian. Growing up here, the California vibes are deeply engrained in her. Lucy feels very connected to this land; from the beach, to the desert, to the mountains. It all inspires her work and can be seen in her ceramic designs. The shapes of her pieces are modern, but the glazes + clay are earthy and simple. Some of her signature pieces are the Loop Vases seen below, as well as the Arch Vase, we love the unique and creative spin she puts on housewares.Read More
I am so excited to share a brand from Sweden that I recently stumbled on! Let’s just say I am adding “Gardener” to my resume! I currently live in a condo but know that it won’t be forever and I am dreaming of the day Lin and I have a home somewhere else! And you better bet this home will have a pool and a beautiful garden and of course my garden appliances will need to be just as fabulous and me and my home!!!! (all about that self love lately…it feels really good too)
You all most definitely need to know about Garden Glory, especially if you agree that details matter-like me!Read More
Just dropping by today to share a fantastic new fragrance that i just cannot keep to myself!!!!!!!
Libre Eau de Parfum is the new fragrance of freedom from Yves Saint Laurent, a statement fragrance for those who live by their own rules. A reinvention of the floral perfume, it combines lavender essence from France with the sensuality of Moroccan orange blossom, for a unique floral fusion complemented by a daring note of musk accord.Read More
I have been wearing quite a collection of comfy swoon worthy kicks lately! I never believed I would trade my high heel obsession but these days, I am so finding that comfort is just what I am needing!!! I am so excited to share my latest shoe obsession with you today and I promise you are in for a treat.
Enter Atelier Aliénor espadrilles. They are made in the south of France with the most premium materials and finest craftsmanship. The sole is entirely formed from jute for comfort and long lasting use. The exquisite leather they use comes from a French tannery that shares their values of craftsmanship, traditions and sustainability. They are just truly so special. It's not just the leather accents, gorgeous hues, and modern silhouettes — they're light, breathable, and look like they stepped right off the French Riviera, which is never a bad thing. They are so comfortable, versatile (easy to pack, wear, and transition day to night) and just plain gorgeous!!Read More
When I was asked to travel in for the NWAFW Spring shows, of course, I said OUI! When and where?! How could I possibly miss this event with 24 designers, 19 commercial brands, 250 models, 30+ makeup artists, 25+ hair stylists and other creative professionals?!
For those who aren’t familiar, NWA Fashion Week is a project of the non-profit organization The Arkansas Arts and Fashion Forum, with a mission to highlight fashion trends, support local brands, to provide a creative outlet for designers, and to celebrate Northwest Arkansas’ fashion culture. In recent years, NWA Fashion Week has focused on putting on two events each year in Northwest Arkansas – a spring show in Bentonville, and a fall show in Fayetteville.Read More

For most people, a spring wardrobe is welcomed with open arms. For me, it poses a conundrum.
Being a complete winter baby, I love wrapping up in layers of wool, coats, scarves and hats so stepping out in Tulsa last week to warm tropical climates had me baffled. I did the only thing I could think of and rushed immediately to walmart.com to do a panic-buy! I partnered with Walmart for their “We Dress America” campaign and I really love what they are doing! This campaign celebrates fashion for all-a diverse range of real people from across the country who are expressing their own style.
For once, I was lucky with my purchases and I dare say I've found 3 spring staples so expect to see them an awful lot! These items best reflect my authentic self! I am such a lover of accessories and layering pieces.Read More
I know so many of you have been so eager for this 2nd part of this travel guide to be published and I am so thrilled to finally share all of my favorite Houston gems with you today! I launched the first edition a few weeks ago and I highly recommend reading it too so you can eat your way through Houston. Find it here.
Considering just how close and accessible Houston is to Tulsa and of course Lin’s family living there, I have spent my last seven Thanksgiving holidays there and have yet to share. (well there have been a few things here and there) But it was time to really put a good itinerary together for you! And while this one is a bit long and picture heavy, I promise that you will get so much out of it for your Houston travels so bookmark this one! We have grown to love this picturesque and interesting city very much. In fact every time I visit The Magnolia City, I enjoy it more and more. As a creature of habit, I do tend to visit a lot of the same places because I love them, but always add something new to my trip each time. And thanks to my friend Karen who lives there, she is always keeping me in the loop of the newest and greatest! But I definitely have my Houston staples as I like to call them! Each and every one is highly Instagrammable too! We all know it’s for the gram!Read More

Visited the tree farm over the weekend to find this year’s Christmas tree and I wore the most beautiful Vintage Valentino coat from my sweet silver fox! It’s from one of my favorite consignment shops in Austin. And it’s just exquisite my dears!
I looooove coats so much! And this one is just the perfect addition!Read More
On November 1st Lin and I landed in Bangor Maine to travel the coast down to Boston. This trip had been on my bucket list as long as I can remember and I am so happy that we followed through. Maine’s Route 1 road trip is as quintessential New England as the West Coast’s Route 1 drive is classic California. While this itinerary starts from Bangor Maine and heads down the coast to Kennebunkport, it can certainly be enjoyed in the opposite direction too. There are two ways to go about this ride: Make a lot of stops on the way up and then power home. Or, pick a few pit stops for the way up, and save a few for the way back. There are so many various options.
A lot of planning went into my itinerary and I really hope you enjoy seeing Maine’s beautiful coast through my eyes—the must-see’s and must-do’s and the amazing culinary scene…OMG. This was such an incredible 7 days and I will forever remember every second of Maine’s endless cute towns and all the lobster rolls!
