I recently spent an afternoon with Katrina Clements, a student at UTSA, being interviewed for an article she was writing. What I thought would be a quick hour, slipped into 3 as we sat and chatted about everything from mom-life, blogging, and business. It blew me away to think that someone would take such inspiration from my life and my work, that they’d actually want to sit and listen to what I have to say.
Mentoring, encouraging, and supporting the young women of today; I think I’ve found a new passion.
Check out these high-tech photoshop skills, y’all (thanks InstaStories stickers for having what I needed)! I’m literally laughing out loud at this photo, but I’m loving the reason behind it.
I’m soo thrilled to announce that I’ve been chosen to be a part of the 2018/19 Riverwalk Royal Court, and will be fundraising for the San Antonio Riverwalk Association to claim the title of Queen of the Riverwalk! It’s no secret that the minis and I love the Riverwalk, we’re downtown so much, that we might as well live there!
When I first moved to San Antonio in ’08, after living in Europe for the majority of my life, I was pretty depressed, the culture-shock was real! One thing that really helped me was to immerse myself in the amazing cultura of San Antonio; the art, the food, the traditions (like Fiesta!), much of which is all Riverwalk-centric. San Antonio is now our home, and I take pride in being able to promote this city.
After my 3rd consecutive year of being nominated, but not claiming the title, for Blogger of the Year in the San Antonio Fashion Awards, the phrase “always a bridesmaid” comes to mind. But here’s the thing – I like being a bridesmaid. Love it, even!

San Antonio is saying a collective “finally!” about the (somewhat) cooler weather that’s hit. When I say somewhat, I mean 60’s in the morning, but 80’s, and yes even still, 90’s by the afternoon. Definitely not time to pull out the heavy coats and chunky knit sweaters, but yay for being able to layer! Also, I’ve found my new go-to bootie for Fall. Scroll through for all the details, and to shop the look.
* I’m a member of the San Antonio Zoo’s Mommy Blogger program, and receive a membership and access to special events throughout the year to share my thoughts with you all. As always, opinions expressed here are strictly my own!
Alright guys, this post makes me kinda giddy, like school-girl giddy. Giraffes are one of my FAVORITE animals, so when the San Antonio Zoo added a family of giraffes to it’s grounds, I was super excited. And now that you’re able to feed the giraffes, I’m like hand-clapping, bounce-up-and-down, excited. It’s my absolute favorite thing to do at the Zoo! Say hello to Alan, Cosmo, and Brayden.
I’m so excited to share this event with you all; come and join me on September 23rd from 1-5pm at Macy’s La Cantera for some major fun! Aquila of Haute in Texas, Michelle of A Thrifty Diva, and I will be in-store to help celebrate Macy’s VIP Sale, in a big way! The first 25 of you lovelies to come say hi to me, will receive a beauty-product freebie – PLUS – make sure you’re following me on Instagram, and come snap a selfie with me on the Macy’s photo wall, and you’ll be entered to win this Micheal Kors crossbody bag, or a makeup goodie basket, loaded with over $100 worth of products!
