ICE CREAM TRIPPIN': AUSTIN



It's always better to see something for yourself than to hear about it and that's exactly how I felt about Austin, TX. People have always told me about how cool, fun, hip, amazing, [insert complimenting adjective], the city is, but it wasn't until I experienced Austin for myself that I fully understood what they meant.

From the amazing coffee shops [Mozart's Coffee Roaster, Seventh Flag Coffee Co, Vintage Heart Coffee], to food trucks [Micklethwait Crafts Meats and Torchy's Tacos], and of course, the main reason for the visit, the ice cream shops [Amy's Ice Cream and Lick Honest Ice Cream]... everything that ATX had to offer stole a piece of my heart and the mosquito bites I endured there have left permanent scars on my legs.

GIFTS FOR GLAM GIRLS


This month’s SEARS STYLE challenge is “Gifts for Glam Girls.” Since it’s sweater weather, who doesn’t love receiving cute, comfy and cozy sweaters for the holidays? Giving clothing as gifts can be tricky and difficult, which is why I love gifting oversized sweaters. I love the oversized look of a sweater and always opt for the largest size available. One size will fit most and can be worn alone or on top of layers.

One thing that a gal can never have enough of during the winter is sweaters and the options at Sears are endless – a quilted sweater with rhinestones for a holiday party, lightweight semi-sheer striped sweater for those of us who live in warmer climates, or a chunky jacquard knit sweater for cuddling and snuggling (my favorite). Check out the Glam Style Squad video here for additional style inspiration.

It’s more than a gift. It’s the joy of the season. #MoreThanAGift

THE SAGUARO


Lodging for our cross-country road trip consisted of staying at various Airbnbs and hotels, and the hotel that I looked forward to the most was the Saguaro in Scottsdale, AZ. I'm familiar with the Saguaro in Palm Springs because of its visually stimulating decor and knew its sister property in Scottsdale would not disappoint (and it didn't).  It was the ideal retreat to relax and unwind after a tiring day of exploring and driving, thanks to its uplifting color palette. Plus, every where that I looked provided so much decor inspiration that I got snap-happy with the camera. Can I just move in here already?
