SXSW has once again come and gone, but not without turning my life upside down. Per the usual. It was wonderful to watch the city transform and see what characters strolled the streets. I have to say this year was pretty low key for me. I attended the Create & Cultivate event on Sunday March 12th. I stood in line for two hours in 45 degree weather for that event.ย My feet were numb by the time I got in butย it was well worth the wait. Create & Cultivate Recap The Create & Cultivate pop-up was a fun day long event with special...

Young professionals should always keep healthy snacks at their desks. My recent job change temporarily derailed my healthy eating and fitness regime. And I slowly but surely have worked my way back out of the darkness. When I don't eat healthy and workout regularly, I immediately feel my energy levels dip, and I find it hard to motivate myself to do anything. That's why I wanted to share some of my favorite snacks that keep me fueled through the day and keep me from experiencing that dreaded crash towards the end of the work shift. If you are a religious...

VINTAGE & THRIFT / 16.03.2017

What do you know, we are on Day 3 of SXSW Music week. And I'm on Day 3 of giving you upcycled fashion from Blue Velvet Vintage. Today is actually my last day in the this 3 day series. Music week continues on through Saturday though. My last outfit is as casual as it gets. As the week rolls on, things tend to get more intense, the parties get more wild, and you are probably scrambling to find secret shows all over town. Trust me, I've been there. Today though, I'm chillin' at Epoch Coffee basking in this glorious weather. And...

VINTAGE & THRIFT / 15.03.2017

It's Day 3 of Music Week at SXSW and I couldn't be more refreshed. After this past weekend, I had to take a break from events. Standing in 45 degree weather in ballet flats for two hours is not a fun experience (it was worth the wait and cold though). On Monday I was feeling the after effects from shivering, my muscles were extremely sore like I had been exercising for hours. LOL I wish that was the reason. But anyways, it took two days of chill mode to get me back to normal. Yesterday on the blog I shared Day...

VINTAGE & THRIFT / 14.03.2017

  If you made it through the the first week of SXSW congratulations! The interactive portion kicked off with a bang, and I saw so many fun Instagram posts and videos. I didn't get out until the weekend [weekend recap coming soon] so I lived vicariously through everyone else. If you are still standing, then get ready, music week just began! Yesterday on the blog, I featured my OOTD from Liz Alig. The most adorable [and comfy] cotton dress. Perfect for Spring and Summer. And of course it was an ethical fashion selection with proceeds empowering women to get an education...
