valentine’s gift guide 2016

Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2016


can you guys believe that it is almost valentine’s day?! what in the what what!
well it’s not too late to snag something up for your bff, mom, sister …. yourself. there is nothing wrong with a little retail therapy…mmmkay!
most of these items are relatively cheap and are things that every woman loves. practicality people with the exception of flowers and chocolates. but you can never go wrong with chocolates.

socks – please tell me i am not the only one that is obsessed with cute, comfy socks? i have the worst circulation in my toesies so these are a must during the winter!
coffee mugs – they have to be cute though. that kitty one is just calling my name!
small satchels – for you men that have no idea what a ‘satchel’ is…a purse. but again, stay small, it’s only valentine’s day, not christmas, don’t get crazy.
small jewelry – studs, simple watches, small pendants, etc.
and of course
flowers & chocolates – this should be obvious. or at least to my husband it should be. i constantly have fresh flowers in the house so fresh beautiful pink, white and red blooms make my day!

valentine’s day should be easy, not extravagant. that’s what birthdays and christmas are for.

what are your plans with your special someone? a fancy din din? a romantic date night?

the hubs and i are are doing something different than usual, we are staying in…**gasp**! hehe
we decided a night in with our daughter, some pizza, a movie and a glass of wine is all we needed.

keeping it mega simple in 2016!!
here is what i posted last year as my gift guide in case you need a couple more ideas!

happy early valentine’s day 


what i wore to work: november

i am going to try my best to keep this series going, just as long as i remember…hehe
so here is november’s post for

what i wore to work

follow me on instagram to see more outfits that i may post throughout the month!

i work in a professional office as an accounting specialist, so sometimes i meet with the head honchos and have to look my best. i work behind a locked door but i do interact with the public, very seldom but it occasionally happens and when it does i have to look professional.
so for me, distressed denim, leggings and relaxed shirts are not appropriate for my work place.  whomp whomp!
but that’s okay! if you can’t tell by my love for polka dots and the color pink, i’m much more of a, high-waisted skirt with some cute bow pumps, gal anyway!

fall must haves

fall must haves

1} kendra scott rayne necklace – if you know me then you know that i am obsessed with kendra scott so obviously one of her necklaces are part of my fall must haves. i love this deep red!

2} blanket scarf – i know i know, everyone and their mom has this but {here} & {here} are some different plaid patterns that creates the fall casual look just as well.

3} mac lipstick in taupe – i’ve actually linked and raved about this before. it’s one of those beauty items that transitions easy from summer to fall.

4} nars lip pencil in cruella – i actually just did a review on this bad boy {here}. this might be my most important fall staple…a big, bold, red lip! ugh so pretty!

5} black booties – i dare you to walk into a store, go to the shoe section and tell me if you don’t find a pair of black booties…yeah, that’s not going to happen. fall is here and booties are out! get you some!

6} kendra scott addie earrings – please refer to #1 regarding my ks obsession. but these are new and i’m in love! rose gold is my fave and these will be sure to dress up any of my work outfits!

7} a chambray button down – i’m pretty sure all stores have jumped on the band wagon of all things chambray so finding this won’t be hard. you can literally do so many things with a chambray button down. keep it open with a tee underneath and you have a super casual look. close it up and tuck it in under a midi skirt and you have a sophisticated office look. possibilities are endless!

8} kate spade neutral handbag – i’m such a sucker for neutral tone everything. just because it’s incredibly easy to match it with any outfit especially if you are like me and don’t like to switch out your purses to match your outfits.

9} any color moto jacket – i have 4 moto jackets…a grey, white, black and a mint one. i am currently on the hunt for a luggage color one! these jackets aren’t heavy duty but they are perfect for the light winds and chills that fall brings.

10} neutral booties – as much as the black ones are a must have, i think some neutral ones are just as important. matter fact just buy them all!

happy fall, y’all!
now go do some shopping!

okay, i’m off my soapbox.

a texas bachelorette – part one



i don’t even know where to begin.
how did i get so lucky to have so many beautiful, caring, wonderful girls in my life?
this past weekend was unbelievably fun and made me feel so special. my liver may hate me but i am so so happy.

i have to give all the props to my maid of honor, ms. preslee. i am so grateful and again, lucky to have a best friend like her. i can’t believe all the little details she planned out to make my weekend so special.
i am so happy that she is the one that will be standing right next to me when i marry the man of my dreams, i don’t know that anyone could be any more perfect than she is.

alright, enough of the mushy gushiness.
this post will be setup like ‘our weekend adventures‘.
let’s get this party started!

IMG_9396 friday morning i did my final walk through with all my vendors since it was the last time i would be in texas with some free time. look at this view off one of the terraces right outside the chapel. holy gorgeous!
