Day of Savings

Clinique gift bag

When I encounter a sale, I feel lucky. When I have a day of savings, I’m on cloud nine. My “day of savings” began at Visible Changes in the West Oaks Mall in Houston, TX. I felt that it was time for a change. (It has been over a year since my last haircut.) Grant, my new go-to hairdresser, was phenomenal! He went through every cut, explaining what I was doing to damage my hair and how I should style my new locks. And the best part? It only cost me $35. Because I went with my … [Read more...]

Experts warn that while … [Read more...]

Peter Pilotto for Target

Peter Pilotto Collection for Target4

  The Peter Pilotto Collection for Target launched today! Stay tuned to get the inside scoop on this affordable line. Peter Pilotto is known for his bold prints and his collection for Target did not disappoint. The “mock skort” was by far my favorite piece in the collection. It hit at my natural waistline (which is very high) and flattered my bum. The fabric felt soft to the touch and because it contains basic black, I know I could pair this skirt with other pieces in my … [Read more...]

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo

Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo

  It’s that time of year again!  Many cities have their own events in which they are proud of but I bet none of them are on such a grand scale that boosts the economy, gives back and impacts so many lives as much as the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo does for Houston and our fellow Texans.   In 1931 it was originally named “The Houston Fat Stock Show and Livestock Exposition” and more than 80 years later it has grown with such magnitude.  Today the Houston Rodeo … [Read more...]
