Weekly Rundown No. 25

Friday, December 8, 2017
Happy Friday! I am officially done with the fall semester and I'm really excited for some down time. I've been just studying for my finals so I've haven't done anything exciting but hopefully I can go out and look for some cool spots in town this weekend!


Loved this post that Sarah Belle did for her 6 months blog-iversary! 

I cannot wait for this second season, anyone else love The Crown?!?


How adorable is this pregnancy announcement?!!?!!

Feeling both sad and happy for Mackenzie Kendall! I've been following her for what seems like forever ago (through tumblr and then insta and then the blog!) I'm sad to see her leaving the blogging world but extremely happy for her new 'big girl' job!

Loved this post from Kate!

What do y'all think of Pantone's color of the year??

Last but not least, my prayers and thoughts go out to those affected by the wildfires in California. Seeing all of the videos and photos are heartbreaking💔

Happy weekend!

10 Things to do During Winter Break

Wednesday, December 6, 2017
It's bizarre to know that there are only a few weeks left for the semester and there may be schools already out. At UH my last final is on December 7th  and I don't go back until January 20th. So on my break, I usually bum out at home and go to work. This year I plan on taking full advantage of this time and have some well-deserved fun! So I've rounded up 10 either free or inexpensive activities to take part in. Also, keep in mind that every state/city is different regarding what kinda of activities are taking place, so have fun wherever you are!


1. Christmas movie marathon: Invite your friends over for a fun marathon including all of your favorite Christmas movies. Mine are ELF, Home Alone, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Have each guest bring their favorite movie and of course you have to have snacks! Load up on cozy, fleece blankets and hot cocoa!

2. Go Ice Skating: There's always been something so special about Ice Skating during Christmas time that makes it so appealing and beautiful. I'm not a skater, so ice skating is off the table for me, but I'd love to try it one day!

3. Go see Christmas Lights: I love driving around Houston looking for Christmas lights while listening to Christmas music. It's so fun looking at how people decorate their homes and it's one of those simple pleasures that I really love! The Houston Zoo offers a fun Zoo Lights and trail of lights which is also fun to see different designs and is low cost per person.

4. Write down 2018 goals: Every year I write down a few goals that I want to achieve during the new year, so winter break is a nice time to sit down and concentrate on the new year. Take this time to really think about what you want to do next year and write 'em down! 

5. Bake Something:  You know those Pillsbury cookies with the fun character designs on them? Well, I love them, so every time I see some I buy and bake them right away! During winter break bake something, bake anything! Whether you're baking homemade cookies or pre-packaged have fun with it, play some music and dance around in the kitchen! 

6. Go to a Winter Market: In Houston, there's always a few markets going around and I'm sure you'll find some in your area as well. Most of these markets include small shops and local artists. I enjoy going to these markets and just looking at what people have to offer. This is also a good time to get some unique gifts.

7. Have a photoshoot: I love driving around the city looking for cute murals and places to take photos at, so why not get dressed up and invite the gal pals for a fun photoshoot. You don't need any fancy camera, just use your phone!

8. Much needed me time: This semester was much harder than last semester, some time is on the top of my list. Staying home in cozy pjs/sweats (whatever floats your boat) and catch up on your favorite shows and readings.

9.Try a new hobby: I don't have much hobbies and I'm constantly trying to find new and fun activities/ hobbies to try out. For the past year or so I've been really into watercoloring.Use your free time to try something new, learn how to watercolor, or get into knitting and crochet.

10.Volunteer: Use this time to give back to your community. During the holidays there are so many volunteer opportunities out there, whether it's at a food bank, animal shelter, or even helping out at your local church. There's always an organization that needs your time and effort.

Do you have any plans for Winter Break? If so, let me know in the comments!

All That Glitters

Monday, December 4, 2017
I can't imagine holiday parties without a little glitz and glam! In fact, I bet there is at least going to be one fabulous lady with a sequin number. Glitter and sequins are perfect for the holidays, many people even decorate their homes with sparkly decor during this wonderful time, I know I do! Today I'll be sharing a few sparkly finds!


DRESSES: You can never go wrong in a sequined dress. I love this emerald dress and how amazing would it look with a fun messy ponytail like this one and some black pumps!

SEPARATES: When I saw this top, I knew it had to be in this post. The style is on trend and the sequins add the glitz factor. Wear it with some cropped pants!

SHOES: Who doesn't want a pair of sparkly shoes? These boots are the perfect amount of sparkle without being too over the top. Pair them with your favorite dark denim (these are my fave) and a nice blouse.

Weekly Rundown No. 24

Friday, December 1, 2017
Hey y'all! Happy Friday and December 1st! This week was a complete whirlwind of emotions and stress for me. All of my final exams opened this week and I was determined to get them all done early so that I can focus on the most important, stressful project due at the end of the week. Well that didn't really happen. In the middle of one of my exams my laptop froze and went crazy on me so I didn't finish that exam, instead I had to take the grade anyway #bummer. I just have one exam that opens next week so I'll be sure to go to campus to take that one. Anyways when do you go on break? Enough with my rambling, here's another Weekly Rundown!

November Playlist

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Today I'm back with a monthly playlist! Is it weird to say that every season my taste in music changes? During the Fall I love listening to Bon Iver and Iron & Wine. And of course, during the summer I'm all about fun, dance music. I also found this AMAZING playlist on Spotify and I listen to it non-stop, it just that good! 

What are you listening to?

Thanksgiving Outfit

Thursday, November 23, 2017
Happy Thanksgiving y'all! This year has been crazy and I swear year after year I become more thankful and grateful for things that I am lucky to have. I am so beyond thankful for my life, family, friends, the roof over my head, my education and so much more. On this turkey day, I hope you and your family have an amazing day filled with delicious food and if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, have an awesome Thursday!







As usual, I kept everything pretty simple and casual for my family Thanksgiving lunch/dinner. I opted for a flowy sweater and leggings with my everyday jewelry and some comfy metallic slip ons!

Once again, Happy Thanksgiving!

Weekly Rundown No.23

Friday, November 17, 2017
It's the weekend before Thanksgiving and I couldn't be happier. This week was pretty stressful just with the semester ending and I have a ton of assignments due in the next two weeks. Also, I've been feeling worn out and lazy and I just want to watch The Vampire Diaries but I absolutely cannot do that right now.

Here's my Weekly Rundown!
