While I've Been Out

Though it appears I have put my writing muscles to rest, I have evidence which proves otherwise. My thesis is just shy of its 60-page minimum. Meanwhile, I have been contributing creative content for Camille Styles...when I'm not hand modeling, tasting brie and testing out my new Tieks :)

I curated the 10 best bucket bags of the season.
  • Thanks to my sis, Amy, for pointing me toward this collection made from soft Italian leather with a clean, classic shape and custom color lining options.

I showed off the most glamorous get-together with Roséline from This Is Glamorous--the first blog I ever bookmarked! 

I learned how to throw a whimsical boho picnic from a triple bestie creative threat.

Dying to do this before Texas temps hit triple digits!

I acted as a wardrobe consultant for wedding goers with ten of the best dresses for guests of the spring and summer soirées. The first is my favorite.

I got in touch with my Southern roots with Juley Le's (of Upperlyne) shrimp & grits recipe...while simultaneously plotting my second trip to NOLA sooner rather than later.

side note: Juley is one of the creative geniuses behind Houston's new Montrose Shop. It ranks high on my to-do list to pay this place a visit upon permanently returning to my hometown in one month.

She and the owner have plans to bring a Parisian soul to this shop with a Texas heart. Sold.

Last but not least, I rounded up ten reasons to give to your deserving mom. My mom is double deserving with her birthday falling on the 1st of May, just a week before all mothers are celebrated on Sunday the 10th.

I'll head to Houston to see her this Friday (surprise to her until she reads this!) to give the best gift of all--quality time. 'Til tomorrow (with the 30th edition of Sense Appeal!),
