Things I love…Dallas!

First off…

ok now that we have that covered...DALLAS!

What a wonderful place to love, right?! Dallas my residence, school namesake, and blog name-it’s only been a matter of time before I blogged about it! I thought that today I would include some of my favorite restaurants in the Big D!

1 | Tillman’s Roadhouse: Walk in the doors and you will be blown away! Literally it is the cutest thing ever. Think Texas inspired Anthro decor…sounds perfect to me! They have wonderful southern comfort food that has been polished up a bit! You can even roast smores at your table. I knew that one would sell you, you need to go tonight!

2| La Duni: it just makes me smile. So beautiful, classy and delicious, gosh it’s just fantastic! They make incredible latin inspired dishes that are so freaking good. Also their baskery is out of this world. You have to get one of these cakes Cuatro Leches Cake or Rollo de Canela Y Nue. Amazing. Oh and their unofficial slogan is, “a day without cake is a day without love”….let’s just say they speak my love language. 

3 | Village Burger: if you stop by any night of the week you have a 50/50 chance of seeing my roommates and myself at this uptown staple. Village Burger is centrally located in West Village and offers not only burgers but to die for chicken {$5.00}. This place is just plain cool and its a great people watching place…always a plus! 

Dallas is the best. Seriously I am so blessed that I get to live is such a beautiful city filled with the people I love! I hope you enjoyed this quick list!

Any Dallas haters out there? Ft. Worth lovers?

What is your favorite part of the Big D?

Yayy Weekend!

Wishful thinking

A wind has blown the rain away and blown the sky away and all the leaves away, and the trees stand. I think, I too, have known autumn too long. 

e.e. cummings

Ohh fall. I would like to see your lovely face.

As we reach our 20th (something) over three digit degree days I find myself longing for sweaters, scarves, boots and tights! Doesn’t it just sound lovely?! {insert super cute fall girl}

Well..looks like our only option is to look at pictures instead. I am sure September will be here before we know it. Until then I will just sit her with my fan and a large drink from QT!

Best of luck to you, hope you are staying cool, and hydrated in this HOT HOT Texas summer. At least all of us are going to be real tan for fall fashion! {being tan is the best}

What are some of your favorite fall fashions? Ready to bust out that super cute new jacket? Would love to hear from you!

Mini Nail Party

Tonight was a wonderful night with some of the best girls ever! Tara and Cara share the same passion for nail polish that I do. Our nail parties are the best!

Here are just a few pictures from a little nail party

Tonight Tara did an awesome silver glitter and then a turquoise crackle over the top. I dont really have a great picture, but it looks awesome in real life! Yea Tara!

I did something really simple for mine. Just a pale pink and few gold glitter flakes. Keeping it classy this week!

Btw the weekend is closeee 🙂

Things I Love…Shoe Clips!

This week I was having a hard time trying to think of something to feature..and then I looked down!

Shoe clips! They are brilliant! I found the pair that I am wearing now from Target {only $6.99}.

They are very Tory Burch-esque {without the $200+ price tag ouch}

I know some people may find the thought of shoes clips as tacky or cheap.

And to that I say…Get ova yourself! Lighten up already!

They are fun! Plus they help make your go to-everyday work shoe special!

I looked up different kind of shoes clips and found some great ones online!

Sequin Hearts {presh}

Gold Bows {DIY}

[I am excited to try and make my own clips]

Oh and you can use old clip-on earnings! The possibilities are endless.

Sooo do you think you will try out shoe clips? Too Tacky for you? Headed to Target now?

I would love to hear from you 🙂

unfading beauty.


It’s been a long week. I am just going to leave you with this.

Knock. Knock.

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Matthew 7:7-8
