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.

Champagne Taste Events – Bohanan’s Bar

Snap a photo in instagram #BohanansBar, win a $50 giftcard to Bohanan’s Bar. Simple.

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.

That cover-model life



“That cover-model life”, you know I don’t take myself too seriously, so I say that will every bit of sarcasm BUT if you haven’t heard me gush about it already, I’m ridiculously, overly excited to share with you guys that the minis and I are on the cover of the May issue of San Antonio Magazine! Yes, I know it’s just our local SA magazine but to me, it’s everything; I’m uber proud of it and so are the minis! I adore this picture of my babes. We’re not a sit-still portrait kinda family and this photo perfectly captures my crazies. And the San Antonio skyline in the background like that; how flawless is this memory?!!

It’s taken me 29 years to land the cover of a magazine (watch out Vogue, I’m coming for ya!). It only took these minis: 1, 4 & 6. I think they’re naturals!

Champagne Taste Events – Kendra Scott




Last night I hostessed a party at Kendra Scott, La Cantera, to help celebrate the launch of their new summer collection.

See that gorgeous abalone-shell necklace that I borrowed for the night; do you not just love it?!

Scroll on through to see my photo diary of the night, filled with champagne, macarons, sparkles and laughs.
