12 Days Of Christmas: Beauty Advent Calendar!

I decided that this year I would give myself a pre-holiday treat… every day. I recently picked up a Beauty Advent Calendar from Target so I can celebrate my own version of the 12 Days of Christmas sans a partridge , swans a swimming, or 5 gold rings.

I was inspired to pick one of these up by a Beauty Blogger and YouTuber I have followed for some time, Kristina Braly, who opens a few Beauty advent calendars every year for Vlogmas (follow her channel it’s fantastic). She finally convinced me that I should pamper myself this year and try something new.The thing I liked about this Beauty Advent Calendar, besides it’s great price tag, is that you can see exactly what items you will be unboxing so that you can be sure you’ll actually like what you’re getting. The great part about picking up an Advent Calendar is that you get to try out items you may not have prior experience with but you also get tried and true products as well.

Click HERE to check out this Beauty Advent Calendar. They’re selling out fast so make sure you go pick one up soon!

Make sure you follow me on Instagram and check out my Instagram Story where I’ll be opening up a new window each day through Christmas Eve and watch my Beauty Advent Calendar journey!

Hill Country Hurricane Help

Many of us here in the Hill Country have strong ties to Rockport, Port A, and Houston. Many of you have homes, friends, and family in the effected areas. Some of my favorite places in Rockport have sustained heavy damage or been wiped off the map entirely. People are without power, surrounded by floodwaters, and in desperate need of basic necessities, food, and water. Organizations need a lot of help and need monetary donations in order to get people the help they need.

If you cannot get down to help in person, you can still help those in need.

How To Help:

  1. Give Blood.Give Blood. Major injuries from the storm mean blood shortages. One donation can save multiple lives. The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center has many locations accepting donations. Find one HERE.
  2. Amazon Smile. Help those in need by doing your normal Amazon shopping. Simply choose a charity you want to donate to and shop like normal. It doesn’t cost you anything but helps do so much good. I currently have The Aquarium at Rockport Harbor as my chosen charity. They were completely destroyed during Hurricane Harvey.
  3. Text HARVEY to 90999 to donate $10 to the American Red Cross or CLICK HERE TO DONATE.
  4. Air BnB has a page to list your rental or a room so that those fleeing the area have someplace to stay. If you have room consider listing it to help someone in need. LIST YOUR SPACE HERE.
  5. Text UWFLOOD to 41444 to donate to the United Way Flood Relief Fund. OR DONATE HERE.
  6. Humane Society.  The Humane Society helps pets and wildlife impacted by the hurricane. Give to their disaster relief HERE.
  7. SPCA Texas. There have been thousands of pets displaced by the storm. DONATE HERE to help Texas animals.
  8. Donate to The Salvation Army’s Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. CLICK HERE TO DONATE.
  9. The Texas Diaper Bank needs help providing aide to families with small children donate here.
  10. The Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce has set up a GoFundMe account to help with recovery efforts. You can DONATE HERE to help Rockport directly.

Summer Fun: Evenings On The Edge

This past Thursday I attended the Evenings On The Edge pool party series at La Cantera Resort & Spa on the Topaz Pool deck. This 21+ adults only pool party is the perfect way to spend a summer Thursday evening and to jump start you weekend wind down.


Each  summer Thursday evening features a different non profit or charity, to which a portion of your ticket sale is donated. You know that you get to do some good for the community while you party this summer!



Make sure you show up and show out in your best summer chic attire!


I relaxed by the infinity pool and enjoyed breathtaking views of the Hill Country.


This is definitely a party you don’t want to miss! 20269927_10212394987137372_932210032_n.jpg








Look For Less: Chanel VS Kaitlyn Pan

I have been obsessing over the Chanel Mademoiselle Two Tone Slingbacks for quite some time.


But as their $850+ price point is still a bit too much to swallow at the moment, I have been on the hunt for a good quality dupe. I finally found a good quality style dupe when I landed on the Kaitlyn Pan Two Tone Block Heel Slingbacks. 



These shoes have been making their way across the blogger circuit for some time and they finally managed to make their way into my closet. These are possibly the easiest shoes to dress up and down. They work with everything I own and are perfect for a casual day out, the office, or date night.


They are SO comfortable and they elevate every outfit I’ve paired them with so far.
