Winter Solstice


Sometimes a change in seasons and scenery can do you some good.  A checkered black dress and a crimson trench coat can immediately put you into the holiday spirit.  Details for my winter-ready look from Eloquii  and G Stage love can be found at the bottom of this post.

The Perfect Match

Last month I had the pleasure of attending an October wedding.  Because Fall weather normally doesn't begin in South Texas until late November/early December, I was lucky enough to be able to pull of this lil number from Eloquii.  The dress's weightless texture, bold print and bright colors made it an instant hit.  To create an even more streamlined silhouette, I chose to add a stretchy black waist belt.  Jewelry from Charming Charlie brought additional visual interest and color.  My black quilted Tory Burch bag pulled my look together and added classic touch to a very feminine and fun look.

I'm Only Human



As human beings, we'd often like to think that we are the most evolved versions of ourselves--Even when we’re not.  Last week, I experienced that feeling.  For months now, I have forged a path toward happiness and healing.  I have identified mistakes that I have made in the past and promised myself that in the future I’d do better.  Everything is easy to say until of course, life tests you.

Happiness Comes from Within



Have you ever wondered why some people, despite their wealth, power and material possessions are clearly unhappy with their lives?  I know I have.  As someone who went back to school full-time as single parent I can tell you that the struggle is real.  I always felt that my life would be so much easier if I just had a little more money so I wouldn’t have to worry about my car breaking down, repairs that my house  needed or how my bills were going to get paid.   Worrying about money caused me lots of stress which caused me to assume that folks with more money slept great at night because they didn’t have to worry about the things that I did.  Boy was I wrong.
