Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I hope your New Years was great and if it wasn't, I wish you a remaining 2019 full of blessings and success! I have not posted on my blog for over a year and I am happy to be able to do so again. 2018 was a year full of wedding planning, and with all the craziness of trying to plan my own wedding and a broken Mac Book, there was just no way for me to be as active as I wanted to on my social medial platforms. My sweet husband knew I really missed blogging so for Christmas he bought me a Mac Book Pro (Thanks babe), and I couldn't wait to open it and type away.

I wanted to start my first post of 2019 by sharing a few changes that will happen on my social media platforms in the next few months. I'm so excited for these so here they go...

Social Media Rebranding
Up until now being a social media influencer has been a hobby I truly enjoy. I do have an 8-5 job but someday I would like to be my own boss, and work from home doing what I love-which is this! That is why I plan to rebrand my entire social media platforms to something that defines me a little better as it will eventually become my business. I have a few choices in mind and will share with you once I make a decision.

Blog Makeover
I started my blog back in 2015 so it's definitely time for a makeover. There are a few things my blog needs in order to help it grow and instead of trying to mess with the complicated HTML stuff, and possibly screwing up my blog, I'm going to have a web designer change the entire layout and design. This is one of the things I am most excited about and hopefully by the end of February my new design will be live.

Change of content
My passion for fashion is what inspired me to start my blog and while I still love all things fashion, it will no longer be my main focus. Sure I will incorporate a fashion post here and there however, I want to branch out my content to travel, lifestyle, fitness, and beauty.

Starting my Youtube channel
The other day I asked my husband "Babe for how long have I been talking about making a Youtube channel?" He answered "Ummm for about five years". Honestly though, it's been longer than since I graduated high school long ago, and that was back in 2008!!! I’ve had several friends and family constantly telling me to start one and I know they’ll be happy to know I’m finally getting it done lol. This year I decided that I was no longer going to procrastinate on this and just go for it. It's now or never, and with so many exciting things happening in my life this year, I think it's the perfect time to start vlogging for my channel. I am still figuring out video editing, and will have my first video up soon after because uuummm I don't want to upload anything just to have a video up. I want to upload fun and entertaining stuff all while nicely edited :)

Ok so that is all for todays post. I tried to make this as short as possible so if you made it this far, thank you for sticking around :) You can shop my planner, or anything from the picture above by clicking on the pictures below. Thanks for stopping by, and have an awesome day.

Prada Marfa

Dress:Lauren James|Heels:here|Bag: Tory Burch similar here| Earrings: Kendra Scott

Happy Friday! We drove to Marfa,Texas a few weeks ago, and the nine hour drive was so worth it! I would highly recommend a road trip to West Texas as there are so many places to visit, and jaw-dropping scenery. Houston is a very "flat" city so to see mountains is quite mesmerizing well at least for this Houstonian it is :)

This Prada art installation had been on my bucket list ever since I found out about it! One day me and Jay were like "we should go this weekend" and just like that out of the blue we planned a mini trip and left that same weekend. We left Houston around 11p.m. and drove almost nine hours straight with a few restroom/gas stops. We got there around 9a.m and in case you're wondering-yes I left my house with pajamas, my hair curled, and did my makeup in the car as we got closer. Mind you I was running on zero hours of sleep so if I look a hot mess in these pictures that's the reason why LOL! We were trying to get there as early as we could because although it's in the middle of no where (literally) it still gets crowded to the point that you have to wait your turn to take your picture, and if you're a fashion blogger then you know we don't settle for 10 or 20 pictures LOL!!!

When we got there there was already a crowd of about 10-12 people, and when I started shooting a man and his wife asked if they could take my picture. They loved how my red dress coordinated with the background, and seemed like sweet people so I agreed, however almost the entire crowd started taking my picture. In my mind I was like "what the heck?" but I also felt flattered like if I was a celebrity and they were my paparazzi ha! Anyway,to the people who were in that crowd and took my picture if you're reading this I would love to see how those turned out so please email me :)

I fell in love with the open back and bow detail of this dress so I knew I had to share it with you guys especially because this specific color is on sale! It runs kind of small-I am wearing a size large for reference but i am usually a Medium and can fit into some smalls. I hope you guys have an awesome weekend and be sure to stop by on Monday for another blog post. XO
