10 Questions

1.  Why are sweet potato fries just now popular?  Where were they in 1986?  I ate sweet potatoes in 1986.

2.  And on that note, where did Kale come from.  I never heard of it until about 5 years ago and I am not a young person.

3.  Just who is Stan Smith?



4.  What does it all mean?  Ok, I threw this one in to make sure you are paying attention.  But seriously...?

5.  Is my love of fashion for good or for evil?

6.  Would you have any Grey Poupon?  If so, you might want to make these.  Yum!

7.  How is Murphy's Law a real thing?  It is so true!

8.  Why can't The Walking Dead come on all year long with a new episode EVERY single Sunday?

9.  How can Motherhood be so amazing and so scary at the same time?  I am in awe at the amount of love I have for my son but with that comes lots of worry!

10.  Can I keep my son in a bubble (literally and figuratively)?  See #9.

Totes rand, I know, but these are the kinds of things I think about.

Spring Shoe Roundup

I get obsessive about a lot of things.  I think that's why I never smoked crack.  I would've have certainly become a crackhead.  And then I would not have been able to afford my shoe habit.  And I am currently obsessed with criss-cross sandals (see how I did that there?).  Something about the cut of the cross on the vamp really flatters my little sausage toes.  And that is important to me, b/c I cannot have busted looking toes.  Otherwise, I would just cover them up always and that would not be fun.  So to celebrate how amazing criss-cross sandals look on my feet, I wanted to share with you my roundup of some super cute styles I've been eye-balling.  I bet they will look good on your feet too.  Even if you have a raptor toe.  Maybe.

The closest I came to a nice Easter meal.  Shrimp and Grits at Breadwinners
 
Organization Success in the bathroom!  I used a Stainless Steel Lazy Susan for my perfume and this cute 3 Drawer Vanity Organizer for makeup.
Ulta Haul - reviews coming soon.
 
Loved reading about old Black & White Hollywood - my girlfriend found this great book at a garage sale (A World Of Movies: 70 years of Film History)!

ATX March 2015

I had a blast in Austin visiting one of my dearest friends with the besties.  Yes, I said besties.  Perfect weather, great company and lots of good eats and drinks are the real essentials for a wonderful Girls' weekend!


Monogrammed bag packed - Restoration Hardware (similar here)
Yes, our host knew the way to our hearts.
The most awesome inside joke ever happened, and did I mention how awesome it was?
Lighter baked French toast.  My girl cut back on the butter and used coconut palm sugar.  Nummylicious, as Dax would say!!
The gang (I just realized as I posted this that our outfits are rather coordinated).

Gotta go to a food truck in Austin (obsessed with the Chicken Shawarma!).
More yumminess from Manuel's (Seafood Chile Relleno). 
One of the sweetest couples I know.
Ussie fail at The Goodnight (bowling)... Well, my lashes and that half an eye look great.

Planning for a Girls' Weekend

In my inbox this morning was a cute and colorful email from Mark and Graham about what to bring for a Girls' night in (or out).  I am going to Austin in a few days for a Girls' Weekend myself  - perfect timing.  So what do you need for a Girls' weekend?  Well, here are my essentials:

Festive PJs, an on-point mani, a colorful passport cover (for Get-a-Ways), a chic overnight bag, fun tees, clutch for dinner,  a roomy handbag, cosmetic case, fancy champagne glasses and of course, your game face (bring it ladies)!

Top Ten Tuesday – March Music Mix

I love music.  I think more than the average person. If you follow me on Instagram then you know my Biggy Smalls loves his music too.  My husband keeps me hip to the game on Hip Hop b/c the radio stations here in Dallas – SUCK!  Sorry, I know that was harsh. 

We are just a musical family. I love dancing, singing, rapping, working out to music.  It just keeps you cool.  So here’s a snippet of some songs on heavy rotation – in no particular order, but these are the ones I’m playing most often these days. 

1. All Day – Kanye West 
    (um, his performance at the BRIT Awards was dope)
2. Pumped Up Kicks – Foster The People 
3. Work It – Missy Elliott 
4. We Are Done – Madden Brothers 
5. Sweater Weather – The Neighbourhood 
6. Truffle Butter – Nicki Minaj 
7. Sure Thing – Miguel 
8. Lost – Frank Ocean 
9. Love Me Like You Do – Ellie Goulding 
    (my man makes fun of me for liking this one but I love this song!)
10. Goodbye – Who Is Fanc
    (Ok, who are you, Fancy?)

Easy Does It

I don't always wear logos but when I do... it's a cute, springy sweatshirt.  
 
 
Sweatshirt: Gap (says Captain Obvious); Jeans: Old Navy; earrings: J. Crew Factory

I just love the dotted faux leather logo.  Can Fridays get any easier?

Charlotte Tilbury and You

I have an exciting event to share with you.  Celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury will be in Dallas to share her new spring/summer collection on March 24!  She will make a personal appearance at Nordstrom in NorthPark Mall and she wants to meet with YOU! 

From 6-8pm, you’re invited to mix and mingle with Charlotte on the beauty floor.  A top DJ will be spinning while you can sip cocktails, sign up for transformations from Team Tilbury, and see the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders bring to life the 10 iconic looks from Charlotte's line (i.e. The Rock Chick, The Uptown Girl, The Sophisticate, etc.), all in celebration of the official opening of the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Counter. 


I have been dying to get my hands on her makeup because of all the raves (@rachel_roy can't stop IGing and #ging about Charlotte and her skills).  A non-sponsored product review is on the way.  If you make it to the event, leave a comment and tell us all about it!
