Southern Hair

One of my biggest battles when moving to Houston was between my hair and the humidity. The humidity usually won.

It was also a challenge to find a new hair salon. Every girl knows this fear. Lucky for me the first place I went to I fell in LOVE with. It’s called Studio 31 Hair Lab, and its located in the middle(ish) of Houston.

They introduced me to some products that will help keep my hair healthy and win the battle against the humidity.

These are a miracle worker.


Also I’m currently deciding if I want to chop all my hair off or keep growing it out

Its PSL Season

I think there is reason fall is most peoples favorite season (besides the arrival of the Pumpkin Spice Latte)

The fresh crisp air, the leaves changing color and lots of cozy sweaters.

It sure doesn’t feel like Fall in Texas when it’s still 90 degrees out..

I’ve also found that it’s hard to dress for fall down in the South. I can’t wear my go to sweater, leggings and boots.

Can you believe this is the same time of the year as the top picture?!

Time for a change

I recently became obsessed with throw pillows. You can easily change up your room by switching your throw pillows throughout the year.

Fall in Houston

Who else gets really motivated to work out during the Spring and beginning of Summer, and then come July you start to work out less and indulge more?

Also running in the 100 degree weather was never appealing to me.

But fall in Houston is my favorite time to run at the park.

My motivation to working out more? Buying new work out clothes.

I indulged a little too much these last couple months, it’s time to get my butt into shape. Thinking of trying the Kayla Itsines program.


Is it the weekend yet?



My Monday essentials consist of:

A venti Chai Tea latte, a comfy sweater & Taylor Swift


Living in the city

My friends just moved into a new apartment downtown and they asked me to come furniture shopping with them. Actually I’m pretty sure I invited myself.. but I love any excuse to look at furniture and daydream about decorating a new room.

They’re renting a studio and I was really impressed with their layout. Studios have a bad reputation because of the small size and they often appear cluttered. When it comes to a studio, simplicity is always better.

Its Football Season

The best part about fall in my opinion? College football.

In Oregon our apparel consists mostly of jeans, t shirts and rain jackets.

In the South its a little different..


Last week I told my friends that I refused to ever ‘dress up’ for a football game. And here I am planning on going to my first Texas A & M football game and I’m shopping for outfits to wear..

Currently obsessing over all the new fall clothes at Nordstrom
