The Nordstrom anniversary sale is one of the most highly anticipated sales of the year. Some even call it legendary! Every year, Nordstrom discounts brand new fall / winter merchandise (and some summer pieces) for a limited time. It is by far the best time of the year to stock up on clothing, accessories and beauty items for the upcoming seasons. I will be covering the sale extensively to make sure that you are are kept up to date on restocked items, as well as, the latest items to go on sale.

Summer is in full swing in Houston — yep, the scorching heat and humidity are back. With the return of the heat, the only thing that I am looking forward to is leaving for Europe in 10 days. The countdown has officially begun!! My do to list is currently overflowing so 10 days will pass by in no time. I spent the latter half of father’s day planning outfits and brainstorming about how to pack three weeks of stuff into a medium sized bag. I haven’t figured out to fit everything efficiently, however, one thing is for sure — I this dress is coming with me to Europe.

Summer Time

You guys, I had the best time soaking in the California sun this past weekend, and now I’m back to rainy Houston, and back to the grind. Over the weekend, I was using a windbreaker at night. Today, I’m at home with the AC temperature turned down to 70 degrees. If only, Houston had San Francisco weather in the summer time. If only. But you can’t have it all right? Therefore, you have to dress for the weather. This post is PERFECT for summer time in Houston.

Who doesn’t love wearing white in the summer time? With the summer heat and tanned skin, white is a staple in my wardrobe. If you’re following me on Instagram, you know how much I love my neutrals. I think a neutral palette is great to wear in the summer time because it is light, airy and fresh! Also, rule of thumb, you can never go wrong with a neutral palette. View Post

As much as resisted, pink is fast becoming one of my favorite colors to wear. Bags, shoes, dresses, whatever, I’m obsessed! I actually just learnt that millennial pink is an actual color. Who would’ve thought?! Millennial pink is such a pretty shade. As I’m writing this post, I’m thinking that I should own something in that exact color — seeing that I am a millennial and all.  It’s funny because I’m literally writing this on the plane to San Francisco for my niece’s high school graduation, and let me tell you, I am not feeling like a millennial today.

If you’re ever looking for a fun spot to hang out by the pool or have afternoon tea, Hotel Granduca is the place to be! Yes, I know that rhymes, and no I didn’t plan on it. You guys, Hotel Granduca is one of my favorite spots in Houston to enjoy a lazy day by the pool and people watch. However, their afternoon tea service is what really stands out!

When Dede, Roselyn and I decided to throw a baby shower for our dear friend Ashley from Simplicity and Coffee, we knew Hotel Granduca would be the perfect spot. My first experience at the hotel was afternoon tea for my own bridal shower. I remember walking into a stunning room where the table was set to perfection. What followed was three courses of snacks, tea and (lots of) champagne — this was truly one of my fondest memories from the time of my wedding. This time around, Hotel Granduca was kind enough to sponsor Ashley’s baby shower and our experience was amazing!
