My back-to-school fashion guide goes nationwide!

11

I have some very exciting news to share with you guys! If you’re a local San Antonionian, you might already know that I’m the official fashion blogger for The Shops at La Cantera’s blog, Fearless Fashionista. Well, a few weeks ago GGP (the company that own La Cantera and hundreds of malls across the U.S.) contacted me saying that I had been chosen out of all GGP’s bloggers to put together a back-to-school fashion guide that would be featured on their mall websites nationwide and was I interested in the opportunity. Um, YES!

My back-to-school fashion guide is now live and can be viewed on 110 GGP mall websites all around the U.S.! What a fabulous opportunity that I’ve been given! I’m thrilled to now be able to share all my hard work with you guys and hopefully help you and your minis out with your back to school looks with my tips and trends.

Lüke San Antonio visiting chef dinner

unnamed

One of my favorite restaurants on the riverwalk, Lüke, has been hosting a series of visiting-chef dinners that are a foodie’s dream. In an effort to bring some of the culinary spirit of New Orleans to San Antonio, John Besh’s Visiting Chef Series invites top chefs from his 10+ restaurants in Louisiana to his one and only Texas establishment.

This month’s featured Chef is Todd Pulsinelli from Chef Besh’s flagship restaurant, August. He and Chef Russ of Lüke will be teaming together to serve a seasonally-driven five course menu that intertwines August’s traditional French fare with the flavors and ingredients highlighted at Lüke San Antonio.  Expect yummy bites like buratta cheese and heirloom tomato tartlettes, potato crusted oysters, and roast duckling with foie gras.

Read on for the full menu.

To make up for it though, I’m doing some microblogging over on my instagram with a round-up of my fave DIY red, white and blue projects.

AVEENO #UnscriptedBeauty

I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for AVEENO. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation

As a mom of 4, I can tell you that almost nothing goes as planned. Life is hectic (to say the least), messy, loud and sometimes, just flat out uncontrollable.

Longer than expected wait times at an appointment, rained out play dates, canceled babysitter, toddler in my makeup box; bring it on! Those are the times when the some of the sweetest memory-making moments can take place.

#LOTD + where to shop it

Screen Shot 2015-05-24 at 10.51.07 AM

Anyone else have the hardest time finding the perfect pair of denim shorts? I have exactly 1 pair (that took me forever to find) that I love. Every time I would go to a store ready to shop, I couldn’t ever even find a pair to try on; they were all either too short or bermuda length. Are these the only options available?
