Shop with me: off the shoulder tops

off the shoulder tops

I’ve been loving off-the-shoulder tops lately and have added a few to my wardrobe in the past months. I went on a shopping hunt for you guys to share with you a few picks that I’m currently contemplating adding to my closet. And the best part, in true Champagne Taste (beer budget) style, they’re all under $25! Keep scrolling for the links to shop them all.

Wait, is my love of neutrals showing…

Champagne Taste Events – GS1221



Last night I got to hang out with some of San Antonio’s best bloggers and social media influencers as they joined me for a happy hour to learn about my newest client, GS1221. This beer garden, downtown on Broadway, is the perfect place to grab a pint. With 30 craft beers on tap, and an additional 40+ in cans/bottles, there’s plenty to go around and something for everyone. Throw in their from-scratch kitchen that brings a fresh perspective to “bar food”, a pet friendly patio, kid friendly atmosphere (they have lockers full of board games!), and a live DJ Sunday brunch, and it’s pretty easy to see why I’m all about this place.

Champagne Taste Events – Culinaria Farm




I’m incredibly honored to say that this past week, I stood with Texas State Representative Diego Bernal and San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor, to speak against childhood hunger here in our city and to support my client, Culinaria, their upcoming project, The Farm, and all they’re striving to do for our city. If you haven’t heard me say it enough, I adore my clients; absolutely love them! I only take on brands/business/people that I truly feel comfortable standing behind and promoting, and Culinaria (and CEO Suzanne Taranto Etheredge) is exactly that.

One of the services that I offer through my digital media firm, Champagne Taste Media, is event coordinating and hostessing. This night was one of my babies. I try to think of every detail and hand picked it all: location, chefs, a cocktail of the night, artists, musicians, thank you gift baskets…After about 6 weeks of planning, I’m so proud of how this one turned out!

It’s movie time + a giveaway

*Thank you to Santikos for sponsoring today’s post



I honestly can’t tell you how long it’s been since I’ve been to a movie sans the minis. Like, can. not. remember. I know its been years. YEARS, people! That will 100% be changing soon though because the new Santikos Casa Blanca Theatre has just opened in Alamo Ranch, which just so happens to be my neighborhood.

You see that recliner right above, it looks down on a 90 foot screen, comes equipped with its own push-for-service button to a full menu (hello cheeseburger and vodka tonic!), and is pretty damn comfy. A girl can get used to this.

I partnered with Bohanan’s last night to offer a fun instagram crash-coure in honor of their new ongoing instagram contests. It was a fun night of sipping on the oh-so-photogenic Blackberry Rickey (try it next time you’re down there!), and making new friends. I loved getting to hang out with all the ladies that attended and seeing everyone’s different photography styles, while sharing a few of my top tips and tricks.

#LOTD + where to shop it

basic black


May’s a busy month for me; endless client meetings and events, there’s a ton that I need to be dressing up for. Until recently, I haven’t had the perfect LBD (little black dress) but that’s changed and this dress has pretty much become of one my favorite things hanging in my closet. This fitted dress is oh-so-flattering, not too dressy, not too casual and can easily be dressed up or down.

Read on to shop this full-black look. Nothing is over $50 and you can get the exact dress that I have (I soo recommend it!). The best part: the dress is only $14! Yes, $14. Seriously. I’m not kidding. No, really.
