How was everyone’s weekend? I’ve been incredibly busy over the past month and was so excited to finally take a break for a fun staycation at the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort & Spa in San Antonio! This place is a slice of heaven only an hour outside of Austin so it was such a breeze to get to, besides attempting to drive in during rush hour traffic! I only wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy all of the amazing amenities and those gorgeous hill country views.
Grayson and I recently visited New Orleans for the first time courtesy of refinery29 and Hotel Indigo. It was such a whirlwind trip that we literally booked it right before Thanksgiving and left the day after the holidays for a quick, 48 hour getaway. Since we didn’t have much time to spend in NOLA we definitely had to make the most of it. Whether you’re staying for the weekend or longer, here’s my must see guide to guarantee a great time in New Orleans.
When I say “It’s about time I took a vacation…” it’s usually way past when I REALLY should have taken one so when Lone Star Court approached me about a weekend staycation in Austin, I couldn’t refuse. Grayson and I always love to experience local hotels and this was one we had heard so many amazing things about so we were definitely excited to get away!
Up until about a year ago, I was not the typical Homeaway customer. Any vacation or trip I took, I would always book a hotel and not think twice about it. It was always an easy and comfortable decision. That was until Grayson and I planned a trip to St. Thomas. We quickly found out the only way to make the trip affordable was to look at other alternatives for room and board on our vacation.
I can’t believe it’s almost been an entire month since our elopement! I literally JUST got the link to our wedding photos and can’t wait to show them to y’all!! If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you have probably noticed an overwhelming amount of photos from Scottsdale. So many people have asked, and why Scottsdale… You know it’s really hot there, right?? Grayson and I didn’t have much time to take a full on honeymoon so we elected to go somewhere close for 5 days and the winner was the desert!
Last month I had the pleasure of being invited to Portland to visit costume designer, Deborah Cook, on the set for Kubo and the Two Strings, an upcoming stop-motion animation movie coming to theaters August 19. From the first time I saw Coraline, I knew these films took an army to create but I had no idea how extreme stop-motion actually was. Being amazed was an absolute understatement! Here, I will give you an inside look on what it’s like on an animated, feature film set. From costuming, 3D printing to set building, you are going to be blown away.
The summer is in full swing in Austin and most people are looking for a relaxing staycation getaway. Welcome to the Texas country! Sage Hill Inn Above Onion Creek is a bed and breakfast nestled in the hill country right outside of Austin. For all of you fellow Texans, this is THE new hot spot for a relaxing few days away from the real world.
Hooray for Wifey Week! Even though I’m not technically a wife YET, I will be in ONE month!! I partnered with ILY Couture this week to share our super crazy Colombian engagement story! I’ve realized I have been the worst fiancé in the history of all fiancé’s and never shared how it all went down! I’m only a year behind it sharing it, but hey, better late than never, right?!

Excited for my first post from St. Thomas to go live today! I had the pleasure of partnering with Teva showing that their new Terra Float is perfect for any Spring/Summer escape!
Teva holds a very special place in my heart so I was overly excited when they reached out for a collaboration. I was a HUGE tomboy as a child (still am for that matter) and used to be outdoors any chance I got. My dad would take me on some amazing, long distance road trips to the mountains to bike, hike, ride dirt bikes and just chill outside. Teva was my absolute go-to shoe for my childhood years. When I think back to those days, I remember the exact pair of Teva’s that I wore over and over again in all the adventures my dad took me on.
Now, Teva is back with new designs and I couldn’t be happier! I loved taking them on my beach trip and couldn’t have imagined the trip without them! They definitely saved my poor, little feet after hiking the streets everyday. I mean, how are you supposed to climb walls, rocks, hills and go to the beach all in one day with any other pair of shoes??
I definitely love them even more because you can wear them extremely casual with activewear or wear them with super cute clothes and not look ridiculous! They come in so many fun colors now that they will go with anything and everything! Teva is the true, all around, lifestyle shoe that will keep you protected and comfortable!
