Magnolia Market & Whilo

Locales     |    February 14th, 2017

Finding the perfect gift can be a challenge. There’s the brother who has everything, the girlfriend whose pickiness does little to explain the hoarder status of her closet, or the in-law whose taste is so varied, you wouldn’t know where to begin. That’s where Whilo comes in. Whilo is an amazing new app taking the guesswork out of gifting and […]

A Visit to the Pumpkin Patch

Locales     |    October 29th, 2016

I cannot believe it’s already Halloween weekend! October has truly passed us by in a blur. Between house projects, work projects, and everything in between, we didn’t even have the time to come up with costumes this year. Yet there is no way I would let Autumn pass me by without partaking in at least […]

A Visit to Hamilton Pool Preserve

Locales     |    July 26th, 2016

After talking about it for years, I finally had the opportunity to visit the unbelievably beautiful Hamilton Pool Preserve in Dripping Springs, Texas. I first heard about this natural wonder from a magazine article about Texas treasures. Although the pool is only about 90 minutes from my grandmother’s home, heavy rainfall, swimming restrictions, closures and general […]

Magnolia Market at The Silos-Waco, TX

Locales     |    April 26th, 2016

While heading down south to visit my Nana, my mom and I recently made a pitstop in Waco, TX to visit Magnolia Market at the Silos. If you’re an HGTV addict like myself, you probably know Chip and Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper and their property, Magnolia Market. Since they opened the silos last fall, I’ve […]

Tougher Still to Explain

Locales     |    November 11th, 2015

“Marfa. Tough to get to. Tough to explain. But once you get here, you get it.” It’s amazingly accurate that this is the town motto for Marfa, Texas. In the month since my boyfriend and I visited this strange and charming little town in West Texas, I have struggled with how to fully explain our […]

Summertime Goals

Locales     |    June 21st, 2015

While it has felt like summer for well over a month or two here in Texas, today marks the first official day of the Summer season. I’ve had a love/hate relationship with summer in the past. As a fair complexioned, easily overheated individual, endless days of sweltering heat and punishing rays wear me down quickly. […]

City Vibes: NYC Part 2

Locales     |    May 11th, 2015

The remainder of my New York trip went by too quickly. Fortunately (although unplanned for) my Monday morning flight was cancelled and I was forced to fly out a day later. An extra day in the city? No complaints from me! Saturday I walked around the Freedom Tower at One World Trade Center. It was really […]

City Vibes: NYC Part 1

Locales     |    May 9th, 2015

As a self-proclaimed “city girl” since the age of four, it has astounded many people that up until the past year I had never visited New York City. Family vacations as a child were spent road tripping around the Western states and never took us farther east than Texas. As a young adult, my love for France led me time and […]

That Glazed Look in your Eyes

Locales     |    March 25th, 2015

Donuts. Those sweet, cushiony pillows of sugary fried carbohydrate goodness. Melts in your mouth and leads to the inevitable sugar crash an hour later. What joy! Saturdays have long been donut day in my family. While I have since outgrown the cartoons that used to accompany them, I still enjoy a sugary breakfast from time […]
