Mid week mani

*this post contains affiliate links, thank you for supporting champagne taste

Someone needs to explain to my nails that the prenatal vitamins I’ve been popping for the past 33 weeks are supposed to make them long and strong. I don’t know what’s up but my nails have been breaking and peeling and this week are basically down to stubs. So instead of trying to church them up and feature them in a post, I’m sharing with you a few of my current favorite colors from Julep.

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Julep subscription boxes. These personalized beauty boxes are loaded with your choice of full sized makeup, beauty products and nail polish and delivered to you every month. I think I might be a subscription box addict but, hey, who doesn’t love receiving packages in the mail?!

  • Claudia is part of the Julep’s birthstone collection. Made to match the August birthstone, peridot, this glitter polish features different shades of green and gold
  • Winter is a creamy grey, just the right amount of not too bright white, to take you into Fall
  • Marieska is a bright tangerine with a touch of shimmer
  • Bea is a lemonade cream color that’s just so refreshing
  • Bailey because, who doesn’t love a fab cobalt blue! This color is great year round



Which of these 5 is calling to you?

Get your 1st Julep subscription box for FREE and become as hooked as I am.

Happy polishing!

Broadway in San Antonio

We’re so fortunate here in San Antonio to have The Majestic Theatre. This historic building located in the heart of downtown is home to Broadway in San Antoino.  All those big names musical you hear about in New York from Wicked to The Lion King are able to be brought right to us in the Alamo City.

Hubby and I love musicals and are fortunate enough to have seen quite a few at the Majestic including, Wicked, The Book of Mormon, Peter and the Star Catcher, Sister Act and more.

The next Broadway shows to appear on stage at the Majestic will be Beauty and the Beast and Dirty Dancing and I mean, c’mon, who doesn’t recognize either of those titles!





Beauty and the Beast will be debuting on September 30th with tickets available for purchase now and Dirty Dancing will make it’s way here November 4th with tickets available for pre-sale August 22nd.

I’m hoping the hubbs and I can make it to both of these shows!

Are you a fan of musicals? Have you ever caught a show at the Majestic Theatre?

Summer fun with Tommee Tippee

*I’m a Tommee Mommee Insider and receive compensation for my product features. All words and opinions are honest and my own

We’ve had a pretty amazing Summer. Though we haven’t taken any big trips or jetted off on vacation, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed our almost daily trips to our pool, SeaWorld and their water park Aquatica, playdates at the art museum, feeding the ducks on the river walk, Saturday mornings at the farmers market, etc… and one thing all that outdoor fun has in common is the HOT San Antonio Summer heat. As a momma of 3 (with #4 due in a few weeks) one thing that’s always packed in our diaper bag when we’re out and about is mini queen’s Tommee Tippee cup.

These truly spill proof cups are insulated, making them a must for Texas Summers. I love that they don’t leak, are durable and can keep mini queen’s drinks chilled for hours. She loves the cute prints and colors; she always wants “my pink one.”
