We bought a house!!

Wellp, it's official.
WE'RE HOMEOWNERS!
(this post was supposed to go up yesterday but we haven't had internet)


It seems like we've been on this home searching journey forever.
Kyle and I closed on Friday and moved [almost] everything in this weekend.
We've been renting the last 3 years and it is SO exciting [& scary] 
to finally own a house of our own.

We brought Charley to the house for the first time last Friday evening,
Y'all I have NEVER seen her so excited in my life,
It was seriously the funniest and weirdest thing.
She was just running and jumping around like a maniac with the happiest face.
It's like she knew we bought the house for her haha

It's funny because we've barely been at this house 24 hours and it already feels like home to us.
We are so thrilled that God led us to this area and this house,
it still feels like a dream.
Cannot wait to start making memories here.

Fredericksburg Weekend Recap

Happy Friday!

This past weekend I got to celebrate my amazing sister in law, Michelle.
I got to spend the weekend with such an incredible group of girls
and we had SO much fun drinking wine and telling stories and just laughing our butts off.

We arrived in canyon lake Friday night and had a relaxing night in,
I got the chance to meet a lot of Michelles' close friends for the first time.
They are all SO sweet, 
we spent Friday night drinking margs and catching up/getting to know each other.

Saturday was spent frolicking around the Hill Country drinking lots and lots of wine.
I wore this adorable romper with these Steve Madden wedges that i've literally been 
eyeing for what seems like FOREVER now. 
SO glad I caved and purchased them.







I don't think the weather could've been any better the entire weekend,
[Shout out to Jesus]
After the wineries we headed back to the house to relax before our dinner reservations.

The weekend went by WAY too fast, as it always does.
But of course i'm happy to be back home.
Hope all of you had an easy breezy week and enjoy your weekend!

R+F Review

Holy moly I woke up feeling REFRESHED this morning!
Bri reached out to me on instagram and offered me these R+F samples and holy cow,
was not expecting them to be THIS great.
I have super sensitive skin, so i'll admit, it did take me a while to convince myself to try them.
But now i'm SO glad that I did, and already need more.

I am a major lover of all things exfoliating and this micro-dermabrasion paste quickly
became one of my top favorites.
So... I took videos applying it, but they're a little ridiculous so i'll spare y'all.

I applied the micro-dermabrasion paste first,
I was a little worried the scrub would be too intense and leave my face red and irritated.
NOPE. 
I could've lathered my face in that stuff all day long.
It smelled amazing, and it was the perfect mixture of a scrub and moisturizer.

After scrubbing my face down I applied the night serum,
which left my skin feeling extra soft. 
Bri also sent me a lip serum and when I kissed Kyle goodnight 
he came right back in for more to get some more of the serum haha

I've honestly been wanting to try R+F for years 
but was so afraid it wouldn't be worth the investment.
I'm so thankful Bri was kind enough to send me some samples,
I now have a way better idea of what their products are like and I know my skin can handle them.

If any of you have been interested in R+F but afraid to try it PLEASE reach out to Bri.
She is such a sweetheart and will answer any question you may have!
Feel free to call her at 551 427 2911
Or shoot her an email at BriVitulano@gmail.com 
Or just head to her site!

This post was supposed to go up this Monday but it's been a crazy week.
Tomorrow i'm re capping my weekend in the Hill country and then,
I've got some exciting news to share with y'all next Monday!!!

Season of Celebrating

Hello Lovers!

| Dress |

I've noticed I tend to do this thing, where I blog for a week, 
and then you don't hear from me for like two months...
SORRY BOUT THAT Y'ALL.

There has been SO much going on.
Kyle and I are moving into our new home next week!
We couldn't be more excited.
SO many of my friends are getting engaged and married and it seems like
we have some sort of shower or party every single weekend,
which is definitely not a bad thing!
We're going through a season of celebrating and I aint mad about it. 

Kyles stepsister Taryn got married a couple weeks ago and it was so gorgeous.
The reception was at Moffit Oaks and it was basically every girls pinterest dream wedding.

The mother of the bride actually planned a flash mob for the reception and
it was a HUGE hit and seriously so cool.


This weekend I'll be heading to the Hill Country for my sister in laws bachelorette weekend.
Her wedding is at the end of this month and it's going to be so freaking perfect.

I'm still adjusting to life back at home.
Missing my salon friends SO much,
and missing that face to face interaction with my customers.

So there's a little update for you all!
Happy Monday friends, hope this week treats you well!

Laced lbd




Dress: Tobi | Sandals: ShopMCE | Bag: KateSpade

As mentioned on Instagram, this dress is THE perfect combination of cute and comfy!
I am a huge fan of dresses that I can wear and eat a cheeseburger [or two] in, and still feel fabulous.

I am so in love with the lace details on this dress, it adds that perfect amount of flare to this LBD.
Score this dress and tons of other adorable stuff over at www.tobi.com

The bag I'm carrying is vintage Kate Spade, I got it years ago, and honestly forgot I had it.
How cute is it though? As soon as I saw it lying in my closet, I knew I had to carry it with this look!

Ohhhhhh these sandals, these sandals are from ShopMCE.com and they are undeniably adorable. 
However I won't lie, they do rub your heel on the back, BUT that can be easily fixed.
They also run a little bigger, so if you're going to order yourself some, order at least 1/2 size down!

I wore this little number to my beautiful sister in laws bridal shower this past weekend.
It was a couples shower and I had the pleasure of being one of the hostesses!
Kyle's aunt decorated the place and holy guacamole it was STUNNING!


I've got a busy next few weeks ahead of me!
Doing my stores closeout sale this weekend, then have a bachelorette party next weekend.
Hope everyone is having a w o n d e r f u l week so far!

Have no fear, Spring is near



Top: Tobi | Jeans: Amuse Society | Shoes: Nordstrom (similar) | Clutch: Kate Spade

First things first, how ADORABLE is this top?!
I fell in love as soon as I laid eyes on it,
I'll definitely be wearing it on repeat all Spring/Summer long!
Oh and guess what? It's only $27 right now and comes in olive as well. 
Get your butt on over to their website y'all > www.tobi.com

In other news, we celebrated my sweet husbands birthday this weekend. 
He turned the big 2-8, and I seriously think he gets better looking every day...
His nana cooked us all a delicious meal and then we went to a little bar in 
North Texas to continue the celebration!
He has been working his butt off lately, and I am seriously SO thankful he's mine.
We've been house hunting like crazy and have already put 4 offers in on houses,
but it just hasn't worked out yet. Which is fine, because I know God has a perfect plan for us.
But sheesh we are just SO ready to be settled in somewhere. 
Just working on being patient and knowing it will happen when it's meant too!

We're heading to the rodeo tonight with some friends to see Sam Hunt,
So I'll be back here tomorrow with a full report on how the concert was, 
what outfit I wore, 
and how many corn dogs I ate!

Stay tuned lovers,

Seeing the good.



One thing i've always known, but really realized this year,
 is that, everyone, every single person is fighting some sort of battle.
Some may be big, and some may be small, 
and some may be small but seem big to that individual.
But it doesn't matter.
Something may seem super simple and small to me, 
but it could feel like the world is ending to someone else.
We all have our struggles, and none of them look the same.

This year I really want to try and keep that in mind at all times.
For whenever i'm frustrated with a friend, 
or family member, or confused by someones actions.
Instead of jumping to conclusions or assuming the worst,
I just want to remember and remind myself that we're all human,
and half the time have no idea what we're doing...
and half the time we're just trying to make it through the end of the day.

Sometimes it's hard not to make assumptions, 
or judge, or feel jealous, and that's just human nature.
But this year my goal, starting today, is to see the good.
To fully embrace myself, flaws and all, and be thankful for what God has blessed me with.
To stop looking at others in jealousy.
To search for the good in every situation. 
To comfort my friends/family in whatever battle their facing.
To not compare peoples battles but help them overcome them. 
To trust God fully, and not constantly rely on myself.
To give back, to those who are in need and those who have given to me.

It may not be the very beginning of the year,
but it's never too late for a fresh start.

Good things to come..



Y'all, there has been SO much running through my mind the past few months.
So much stress, so much worry, so much wondering what people are going to think.

But after a lot of thought and prayer and hard conversations,
i've officially decided that I won't be re signing my lease on my store.
The opportunity to have my storefront came at such a perfect time in my life,
having a store front for a year was EXACTLY what I needed last year.
It was such a positive experience and I have learned and grown SO much from it.
Although it was SO much fun dealing with customers face to face,
and meeting SO many incredible and sweet women,
Plaza just wasn't the place for my business.
I'll be leaving at the end of March.
I'll be continuing to sell online, and I'll be doing pop up shops around Texas
as frequently as possible!
AND I now offer FREE shipping on all US orders!
(www.ShopMCE.com)

With all that being said, i've got some other exciting news!
If you follow me on instagram i'm sure you've already heard,
I'm now doing photography part time!!!
I have always loved taking photos of anything and everything.
I love capturing moments & making memories last forever.
If you live in the Houston area, or anywhere in Texas,
I would L-O-V-E to shoot you or your family!

Go ahead and click here to see some of my work & get pricing info.
Thanks for all the love & support y'all!

Goals and Resolutions


Sweater: ShopHopes | Pants: LuLus | Boots: Similar

I was one, along with a million others, who were just totally ready for 2016 to be over. 
Now don't get me wrong, it wasn't all bad.
2016 was absolutely a growing year for me, and honestly,
growing is hard y'all!
In 2016 I opened my very first little store space.
and holy crap I have learned SO much about my business and relationships and
just myself personally.

So as most of you know Kyle and I have been trying for a baby,
and well, it's just not happening for us right now...
So this past month I made a promise to myself,
If my period came -- I would stop thinking so much about a baby,
and put ALL of my time,  energy and focus into my store and getting back in shape.

I'm sure all of you know I opened my online boutique a few years ago,
it's my baby, and it's something i'm very proud of.
However,
it seems like everyone and their damn cousin has an online boutique these days.
BUT i'm happy to say that I was one of the originals. 
And this year my goal is to get back to where I was when I first started.
So if you're one of my day one's - don't leave me now!
I've got a few ideas up my sleeve for my store and can't wait to share them with y'all!
--Stay Tuned!--

Engagement Season


I took a little break from blogging the last few weeks,
and I feel like I have SO much to fill y'all in on!

But the most exciting thing is...
My little sister got E N G A G E D!!!!
I had the honor of hiding and capturing the moment for them,
It seriously meant so much to me that Michelle's fiancĂ© 
trusted me to play such a big role on their special day.

Here's a little tiny glimpse.


After the proposal he had all of her closest friends and family waiting to surprise her.
He did SUCH a great job!

It is officially engagement season y'all!!
hehehe
