We have all seen, and loved, the versatility and sleek style of Rebecca Minkoff's MAC. Mini MAC and newest Hudson crossbody bags. As I was casually browsing around for black friday deals I stumbled upon what looked like the perfect twin to RM's bags. Except, the best part is that this bag is under $20! And you will never guess from where (insert drum roll)… Charlotte Russe! I know, I hardly ever shop there but they do have some cute trendy dresses right now and free shipping for orders on black friday with no minimum. It comes in an oxblood red color (so chic for fall/winter) and a blush/black combo. On top of all that, for a limited time only, these bags are on sale for as little as $12.50 (blush) and $15 (oxblood)! Seriously you guys, it is dead on and on shopping list for Christmas. So which bag would you choose?

Hi everyone, I am so sorry for the delay and not posting in so long. I have been super busy and in the midst of tweaking the blog (yes again). To me my blog it is a constant evolution and can always improve, so stay tuned for some new additions. I will do my best to post after the holidays are over this week. Hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving! xo

Happy weekend! Tonight, I'll be attending an event at the Houston Zoo with my mom to help support the animals that call it home. I am so excited because I have never been but have heard great things! Including food, wine, animal viewings, a charity concert and more. So I'd like to leave you with these words for the weekend. I believe I've been incredibly blessed with the life I have and continue to grow every day. Being given any opportunity is a moment to be thankful, striving to be the best you can is a time to reflect, and putting your heart into everything you do. Those are the experiences you will never forget.

Remember I did a post on my to-do list for fall? Well, I can cross one of the activities off the list, going to a pumpkin patch and carving with my family. Halloween is my favorite holiday and fall happens to also be my favorite season so I love to partake in fun activities around the amazing weather.
I posted this photo on my Instagram with the final result of my beloved carved pumpkin. What activities are you looking forward to for fall? Happy Halloween and trick or treat :)

Recently, I've been scouring the web and my local Sephora for a new makeup palette to spruce up my fall makeup routine. I'm a lover of neutrals for my everyday look, no matter the season but for fall, I really love to incorporate deeper colors for my eyeshadows: deep greens, wine, copper, and purples. These all seem a little intimating for the average day-to-day look but trust me, they are exactly what you need to add some spice for fall. Here are some of my favorites palettes that I'm looking to purchase, what palettes are you loving?

What do we as human beings strive for everyday? Being successful in all aspects of our life? Aiming towards perfection? To each their own, and with that comes different aspirations and goals. My friend Erika is one of the biggest advocates of this quote and I always think of her when I see it (or some variation of it). It reminds us to always work hard and be diligent in the tasks that lead us toward our internal successes and ultimate goals in life. Always be kind to those around you, because you never know when you my need help. Keep those that you cherish close to you and most of all, stay humble. There hasn't been an accomplishment in my life where I haven't had the ultimate support from both my family and loyal friends. We wouldn't be where we are today without the help of someone else. Be reminded that kindness is always valued and hard work is never overlooked.

I have always believed that the power of music has a way of helping us to understand and make sense of our lives. No matter the artist or lyric, music is a medium for which we dive into in order to escape from the world around us. With loving so many different artists and bands, Train has been a long time favorite of mine. The quote, or lyric in this situation, has always struck me as being the epitome of our modern society. We are always reaching for new things, wanting the must-haves, the latest gadgets, etc. then realizing that it isn't what you imagined the feeling to be. There have been, on multiple occasions, where I finally buy a piece of clothing or an accessory that I had been craving for ages only to get this empty feeling. We yearn for things we cannot possibly imagine we could possess. Why? Because that's the beauty of dreams. Imagination, wonder, and creating a fiction of what things could be like. But when it really comes down to it, we have everything we need right in front of us. We choose to oversee them and gaze at our wants.
