Jupiter| Waffles and Pizzaria

Situated in Sugar Land’s Town Center, this rustic yet industrial local spot never disappoints. I love Jupiter for many reasons but the one closest to my heart has to do with a dear friend I recently lost to cancer. Our last time together Travis and I sat on the bed in the home he shared with his loving wife Ashli and shared a southern belle while our kids ran and played together. What made it even more beautiful was that the chatter of his awesome family filled the room as we all shared precious moments with Trav. ❤️

Beyond my fond memories of those moments is the delicious food, craft beers and top notch service. I’ve been to Jupiter several times and not once have I ever had bad food or service. The staff is nice and attentive and the food wakes up your taste buds. I know the combination of waffle house and a pizzaria sounds strange but trust me, it doesn’t taste strange. Everything on the menu is Devine. Plus, if you go on week days before 3pm they offer a wonderful lunch special that includes a decadent salad, appetizer, and entree for only $12!!!!! (pictured below: Don’t drool on your device when you see the pics. Lol) Enjoy!!!





OOTD| T-shirt Dress

Yes it’s officially fall and the air is finally cool but this is Houston. That means you never know when it could possibly be 75-80 degrees with out much notice. This ootd is minimal and simple(my two favorite things ? ) and is super easy for a random warm Houston day. Take a t-shirt dress, and layer it with a denim/chambray shirt or even a denim jacket. For shoes you can go with ballet flats or even sneakers if you plan on being on the go. Enjoy!

Meru Merus by Umair Khan

I watched excitedly as a nearly empty space  turned into a runway. Couture designer Umair Khan was at the head of it all. I LOVE to be front row at fashion shows but my true passion lies in what happens behind the scenes. I love the frantic buzz of designers, models, makeup artists, and hair stylist preparing for for the big moment. My deep appreciation for the people that make wonders happen is the center of this piece.

I watched as designer Umair Khan calmly walked around and put his touch on everything. To watch a designer take such care of seemingly minuscule details was like watching an artist create a masterpiece before my very eyes. Yet while all this was being done, he found the time to make sure I had everything I needed.

Partnered with Umair to finish all the looks was Afsheen Tejani and Pooja Jain of Tezaria’s High Couture Jewelry. The hand crafted pieces gave the feel of completion to every single look. We all know that a couture garment goes seamlessly with couture jewelry and Tezaria’s did not disappoint. See more hand crafted pieces on Instagram. 

 The hard work was done. The beautiful Meru Merus Fall 2015-Winter 2016 couture line was complete. Every model was fitted for garments, they practice their walks, and there was Umair every step of the way making sure that it was Authentically+Meru Merus. The level of preparedness, dedication, and passion was not unnoticed. All of Umair’s influences shined brightly in every piece that came down the runway.The dream and vision of being a respected designer has and will continue to come to fruition for Umair and Meru Merus. Follow Umair on Instagram to get the very latest. Enjoy!






Scarves Galore

We all have those accessories that we love but are a hot mess because they are disorganized and scattered everywhere. While I’m cleaning out more and more of my closet to transition to a capsule wardrobe, I find it necessary to inventory everything. Once it’s staying in the closet it must be organized. All my scarves were on a multi pant hanger that made it hard to see what I had in the scarf department.

Recently I got a nifty little scarf holder from Target that holds 15 scarves. It lets me fold each one neatly so that I can see them all at once. One of my biggest problems while getting dressed is not being able to find things when I need them so this helps a lot. Ikea does have a scarf hanger with more loops but as I’m minimizing, I don’t want to be tempted to fill every loop because it’s there. I have 7 loops that are empty but I don’t intend to fill them. Less is more, right?!? How do organize your accessories?
