High-Waisted


Hello Friends! I am back! I apologize for the delay on my blog post. Life can just become so busy at times and learning to battle everything I want to do in a day is still a learning process (work, workouts, family time, blogging, shooting outfits, photographer). Do you ever feel like you could use more time in a day?

I wanted to share these awesome high waisted jeans I purchased for my trip to NYC a few weeks ago.  (as seen when attending Mario's "The Master Class": On Instagram) They fit so perfectly and can be dressed up or down. I'll be wearing these a lot this fall season (Warning you now). 
Shop them here:Here

This top is currently on SALEClick Here

Top: TopShop// Shoes: Micheal Kors// Bottoms: Levi's

As always, thank you for all the love.

XOXO,

Tuesday Talk: My Top Brunch Spots




Happy Tuesday Talk Friends! 

Can you guess my favorite B word? .....BRUNCH! (should you not see my Snaps every Saturday)
I am excited to share my favorite brunch spots in Houston with you! I enjoy menus with great options ( as a pescatarian, options can sometimes be limited). 

State of Grace
I had wanted to try this place for a while. Possibly because of their white interior (guilty) but also because of their awesome food options. When looking at the menu, I was undecided but ended up going with Shrimp and Grits. Regardless, the waiter brought the other plate I was debating on (how cool is that). As for coffee, it disappeared quickly! Cecily ordered a burger (this pretty much describes us). Next time you are on Westhiemer, you must stop! 



The Dunlavy
Located at Buffalo Bayou Park, this Brunch spot is perfect after a run or a day out with some friends. Its beautiful inside and out ( All my blogger babes, this is definitely instagram worthy). 




The Honeymoon Cafe
This is my go to brunch spot, located in Downtown Houston. They have some of the best coffee in town in my opinion! (and I've tried many) and their food is delicious! I love the vibes! You can find me here more than I should! Ha


Backstreet Cafe
Where you can find the Nutella Iced Coffee (Yes, you read that right! It is amazing) Even though Houston weather can get hot, I love outdoor seating and the setup here is so cozy and cute! Plus, their Crawfish Cakes are Bomb! This casual dining is located in River Oaks and worth a try!


La Table
Instagram lead me straight to you and you did not disappoint. I mean, the lipstick stain says it all! Fresh fruit and Yogurt and some French Toast made our Saturday brunch so much sweeter! We went after a photoshoot (around 10:00 AM) and the restaurant was nice and calm. 

I love all of these places and are not in any order! They are all great and ones that I go to often!

Thank you for stopping by, may your brunch be as sweet as you!

XOXO,

Tuesday Talk: Building your dream during your Spare Time




Hello Friends!  I hope you are having a wonderful week! I am back with Tuesday Talk! I promise to keep it going every week! If you have ever dreamt of doing, becoming, or accomplishing something but feel that you do not know how to fit it into your "busy schedule" let's think again.

I am a full time recruiter and truly enjoy my role in the office. However, sometimes you have additional passions that your heart desires to follow. So why not work on your passion during your spare time? Here is how I am able to work full time and follow my passion for fashion as well:

There are so many things people can do with their past time. However, I am aware that if I want to accomplish something bigger than myself, I must work at it every second I can. Monday through Friday 8-5, I am a full time recruiter. I truly enjoy helping others and love the importance of my role at our office. Plus, my team is awesome and are aware of my love for fashion and goals as a blogger as well!

When I am not working, I divide my time between shooting my outfits, caring for my baby Nala, quality time with family, working on myself (workouts, reading,etc.) and putting my blog post together (Travel often too, so much to see, our world is beautiful). It certainly took time for me to be able to learn how to manage both working full time and being a fashion blogger and am still figuring it out. But, it's something that I love to do and cannot give up



Saturday Morning Ritual:
I wake up at about 7 AM on Saturdays to shoot at least 3 outfits for the week.(with working full time I do not have time during the week to shoot my outfits). I have teamed up with my good friend to stand behind the camera and will be forever thankful! ( I mean, who wants to be up that early on their day off). 

Week Nights:
I spend my evenings working out( It relieves my stress and good for the body), putting my blog post together, and preparing content for my social media. Naps and television do not really exist for me, besides occasionally a show or two on Netflix. I understand that I have to give up certain things in order to obtain the things I want to accomplish in life.


I guess you just learn to make time for the things you want really badly in life. Receiving my Bachelors was my very first accomplishments but that is not where I plan to stop! I just  don't ever want to ask myself: what if?
