Sunday Birthday Shenanigans

On Sunday it was my friend and amazing photographer Megan Batson’s birthday; we are loosing her to Cali in the next two months so this was her last bday celebration in Texas :/ we are sad to see her go but she is going to do amazing things in Cali and will be pushed in creativity. Its such a life changing experience, one should move to cali once in their life.. After church the twins in I met her and her friends up at El Pueblito Patio. The cabanas and pinnacoladas in pinnaples realllyy hit the spot and made me feel like I wasnt in the middle of Houston.  Megan shot the girls for a jewelry line on Tuesday, I cannot wait for the photos! They turned out amazingggggggg!!! They had a “mom” that was just in Vogue Italia, hair and makeup everthing was impeccable! We love you Megan! xxo -M

I love my hair stylist!

I am like a hair salon whore. haha no really i have so many friends who are hair stylists in the industry that i will go to one one month and another another month. But with Caitlyn Smith from SOK i have finally stopped going around town and finally find myself wanting to settle down. I really dont know what brought on this change maybe its just a connection we have or that im getting older. Im kidding; but i really do love caitlyn i just let her have free range with my hair, i give her a slight idea and tell her to run with it and i love what she gives back. I love my short angled hair. I went to a wedding in dallas right after i got my hair done and i had soo many complements. I even had a woman at Buc-ees stop me and ask where i got my hair done. Im glad i had a few cards on me because i gave her one. I got a text from caitln a few days later telling me the lady came in with her daughter and her sister and her daughter would be making an appointment with her the following week! I love meeting new people i thrive off of making these connections for others. I love my little circle and i love my hair!

Artopia Fashion Sneak Peek

Dawn Bell and I have been facebook friends for awhile now. I see everything she is doing in the vintage fashion world of Houston and its so inspiring. She started Houston Vintage a consumer friendly event which encompasses vintage pop up booths from all over Houston in one area. Last year I had the chance to go; the location was set at CoInside there were food trucks out side, at least 10 or so vintage booths downstairs alone and the entire up stairs filled with booths and burlesque style dancers performing ever so often. They had the most adorable vintage hair salon there to help you get in the mood for the event. Each year its getting bigger and bigger so i cant wait to see what this year has in store!

She has also created a kid based camp called Fashion Camp Houston that will take place this summer June and July accepting application for kiddos between the ages of 5 and 18. There are two types of scholarships available for these kids one based on merit and one based on need, be sure to email {{ dawnbell@fashioncamphouston.com}} her if you are interested in these. 

I went by her studio the other day to have a sneak peek of what she will be putting down the runway during ARTOPIA .  Here is a little picture to excite you.. vintage wear with modern touches, blues and black with white stripes. Are you going to Artopia? Im going with an amazing artist friend of mine who recently moved back to Houston. Let me know if your going! If you dont know what Artopia is it is a fashion, art and music event put together by Houston Press. It is SOLD OUT EVERY YEAR so this year i jumped on the VIP tickets when they were on sale. General Admission is $55  you shouldnt miss out though. I wish a few more of my friends were showing this year but im still excited to go. 

I didnt expect to sit down with Dawn and talk for 2 hours but we did and i learned so much about this woman and everything she has been through and done. She has a daughter that i was shocked to know has the same name as my little one. Its an interesting name and not something you hear a lot. Im inspired by dawn and im so glad i can call her a friend. She has started so much in this city from nothing. Which im in the process of trying to do, I love Houston so much because there is endless possibility here to start something a bit magical.  Congrats miss Dawn on everything you are doing! 

DONT MISS OUT ON ARTOPIA THIS WEEKEND!

AshLee Frazier & I went shopping

Over the weekend AshLee and I went by two of my favorite boutiques in Houston,TX. Elaine Turner in Rice Village and Carrie Ann in Uptown. AshLee walked away with this bag and these boots, even though it was a hard decision! We looked online prior to coming into the store but you honestly need to see everything in person. Check out my boards for some of my favorites and AshLee’s from Elaine Turner.
Watch her on The Bachelor Monday 7pm on ABC! If you are using Twitter or Instagram her HASHTAG is #BacheloretteAshLee.

                                   Splendid Grand Opening with Craft Community 

I was invited to the grand opening of Splendid, and did we have a splendid time :) haha Had to, how could I not make that pun. When we walked into Splendid instead of the normal champagne when going to a grand opening we were welcomed by candy from Dylans Candy Bar.  Yes please, the girls were so thrilled by this. We then walked over to a Make your own pen craft.  You choose various backrounds & Splendid’s Signature ink blot to go onto your pen and then this machine makes it{ look to pictures}! This by far was the cooliest DIY I have ever seen at an event. The necklace diy was a bit hard you couldnt really glide the beads onto the fabric. But if you did it the right way the necklaces came out pretty great. Over all great event, but the twins attention spand is only for so long, no shopping for me. Great basics but im not really a basics kind of girl.   I do love the over all feel of the shop, its very chic, reminds me of california and i miss it soo much.  I know a ton of my followers would love this store! So stop by! They have recently added some amazing printed leggings and printed pants that I would totally buy!! I would post but they dont have any pictures of the items itself just on models, makes it hard to create a clean board.. ( hint* hint* splendid web people)

After, we walked over to Sprinkles for some more sugar.. good job mom lol. They never eat a whole cupcake so we pretty much took it home so they { or I} could eat it later. haha eating after your kids will make you gain weight what am I doing! 

Sprinkles when are you building an icecream shop in Houston!! Im dying I cannot wait, dont make me jet all the way out to cali just for icecream i will feel like miss piggy.
