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 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 […]

Two Years in Texas

Events     |    July 1st, 2016

On this day two years ago, my Mini Cooper rolled into Dallas packed to the brim with my belongings, my cat, my dog and my own excitement for a new adventure. I had spent three days alone, driving 1,700 miles through California, Arizona, New Mexico and finally Texas. I had no idea whether I was here […]

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 […]

Bachelorettes Do the Big D

Events     |    August 14th, 2015

In celebration of the one week mark (seven days!) until Miss Chelsea Mae’s wedding, I wanted to share some of the…shareable…moments from the Fourth of July weekend/bachelorette party extravaganza I hosted in Dallas. Five of the bride’s closest friends and bridesmaids flew out from California for a weekend of smokey BBQ, cold drinks, ‘Merica and […]

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. […]

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 […]

Weekend Vibes: Austin, Tx

Locales     |    March 19th, 2015

After almost three solid weeks of gray skies, cold weather and a terrible cold, I was more than ready for a weekend of sun and fun. Thankfully last weekend’s trip to Austin more than delivered. After over a month of looking forward to our mini-vacation, my friend Victoria, myself, and my pup Winnifred piled into the Mini […]

Snow Daze Survival

Design     |    February 25th, 2015

Compared to the East Coast, Midwest and especially Canada, coastal weather is by all definitions mild. As a native Californian my idea of a snow day is a sunny Saturday in Tahoe sipping hot cocoa, hitting the slopes and finishing it off with a soak in the cabin hot tub. As such, the arrival of the […]
