Partner Spotlight: Frugaa

Lately I have no desire to actually visit stores to go shopping outside of Target. I have been doing the majority of my shopping needs online. I have a friend who does all her shopping online. She hates stores. So with online shopping comes the discussion of how to save online. Yes, I’ve learned that [...]

Oregon ScientificAroma Diffuser and Sound Therapy Clock

I’ve always written how I’m not the best sleeper. It started in my late twenties, geared up and went nuts in my thirties, and miraculously with a lot of work on my part has gotten better. Why? I realize my triggers. I can’t be on the computer, iPad, iPhone, and any technology by a certain [...]

Travel Diary: Devon Valley Hotel in Cape Winelands, South Africa

I traveled to Cape Winelands in 2010 before heading to the World Cup in other parts of South Africa. It was one of those bucket list trips, but I never posted the photos or wrote what made it so memorable. Growing up in Houston I always knew that my life would be very different than [...]

Travel Talk: Palm Springs Spa Infographic

I’m headed to California on Friday for a race and to cover a few hotels and spas, but I’m really bummed now that I am not making it to Palm Springs to cover their spas. I need to plan a trip back to California to experience all of the Palm Springs Marriott properties spas. It [...]

Reading Pretty: The Idea of Him by Holly Peterson

The Idea of Him by Holly Peterson is the perfect book for a beach getaway. At times I wanted to yell and scream at Allie the main character. The book’s underlying theme of wanting something you know isn’t really good for you, but you are trying to make it fit. I was recently speaking with [...]

Roja Dove Amber Aoud

There are scents that make me smile and scents that transform me, move me, and bring tears to my eyes. That’s how I feel smelling Roja Dove Amber Aoud. A brief background of Roja Dove. His scents are only available at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman in the U.S. You can always cross the pond [...]

{3.28.14} Le Weekend

I feels like spring. I know I shouldn’t be so happy, but 50 degree temperatures make this girl very happy. Although, the forecast call for rain, I don’t care as long as I don’t have to wear a puffy coat. I looked at the calendar and I’m like where has this year gone. It’s flying [...]

Feasting Pretty: Buvette Gastrothèque in New York City

The beauty of Twitter is when one breakfast appointment cancels another one takes its place. I went to New York last week and a planned breakfast meeting was canceled the night before. I put on Twitter if anyone wanted to have breakfast with me. One of my followers messaged and the next thing I know [...]

{3.21.14} Le Weekend

It’s spring officially according to the calendar, but according to the weather you technically wouldn’t know it. The hope of wearing flip flops and dining outside is not so far off. I’m excited about my Saturday – breakfast, yoga date, and then absolutely nothing. It’s beautiful. It’s been a very busy week. I went to [...]

A Celebration of Wine & Family: Q&A With Francis Ford Coppola

  To know me is to know I love wine. I believe wine is a part of a meal and life is too short to drink bad wine. I recently spent an evening sipping some of my favorite wines from the Francis Ford Coppola Winery before a Q&A with the genius Mr. Coppola. Francis Ford [...]

Reading Pretty: The Divorce Papers by Susan Rieger

The Divorce Papers by Susan Rieger was a fun and enjoyable read. I will say this is the book to add to your summer reading list. The book is obviously about a couple going through a divorce, but to me it shows what happens when we don’t communicate with the people we love in our [...]

{3.14.14} Le Weekend

I hope your week has gone well. I always look forward to Friday. It’s usually my time to drink wine and watch documentaries on Netflix. It’s day two of bathroom renovation craziness. Seriously, this is not my thing. Thank God my husband has more patience in this area and has been dealing with the contractors. [...]

An Overnight Mask to Wake Up Flawless

Skincare is always evolving, changing, and growing. I am constantly enamored of the research and technology that goes into all the exciting new products and lucky that I get to test them out. I have always been obsessed with skin. Why? Pretty makeup looks good on pretty skin. That’s it. If you get your skin [...]

#PrettyGlamazonOscars Viewing Party

I have been on “operation skin like Lupita” for a a few weeks now. But, what I haven’t said is how much fun watching the Oscars with a group can be. I usually watch the red carpet madness from my home with a bottle of wine and hors d’oeuvres. It’s a party of one and [...]

Blogiversary: Cheers to 8 Years!

My time has flown. It seems just yesterday I started this lil’ old blog and here we are 8 years later. March for me is a month of new beginnings for me. I moved to DC in March, started my yoga journey, and started this blog. March, you my dear have been good to me. [...]

Travel Wish List: Frenchman’s Reef Beach Resort & COOLA Suncare Collaboration

As we anticipate a drop in temperatures tomorrow after this gorgeous day today it has occurred to me. I’m really over all this: vortex, puffy coats, tights, and gloves. I’m ready for the beach. One of my favorite sunscreen brands COOLA Suncare has partnered with a hotel on my never ending travel wish list – [...]

{3.7.14} Le Weekend

I am so ready for the weekend. I’m ready for lots of laughter with a few of my blogger friends for a quick staycation at Salamander Resort. I’ve been to Salamander before and it is so lovely. I’m looking forward to a getaway that doesn’t require a plane. With that being said, I am happy [...]

Big Girl Bath Time with Diptyque Precious Oils for Body & Bath

  Snow days are sometimes the best days. Especially on a Monday. After working full speed from the time I woke up I decided it was time for a mid-day break. I don’t mean the kind of break that included the day’s left over coffee, but the kind that included a hot bath (hot baths [...]

Travel Diary: Colony Club in Barbados

A few years ago I stayed at COLONY CLUB in Barbados. It is a dreamy hotel right on the beach. I’m dreaming of Barbados and think maybe a trip to their Food & Wine & Rum festival may be exactly what I need to get my Bajan fix. Of course, as I went to write [...]

2014 Oscars Recap

Did you watch the Oscars last night? I did. After a fun gifting party and tweet-up with friends I was able to watch the entire show at home before the weather became to crazy. I was so happy with Ellen. Her jokes were hilarious and those celebrities seemed very happy to get pizza. My recap [...]
