When a friend comes to visit you in Houston, where would you take them for a day of shopping?

I would take my friends to the Galleria, River Oaks Center, and Highland Village, They are all within 5 miles from each other and have all the best shops you could ever imagine!

If you could shop anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

Well if I had unlimited budget I would definitely shop on Rodeo Drive. It’s every girls dream to shop in luxury!

What is your definition of a boffo (successful) shopping trip for you?

As a mom a successful shopping experience is finding everything you wanted in your size, on sale, and staying in your budget. Mom guilt is real, and that is why budgets are everything!

What inspired you to start your blog?

I actually started my blog when I was pregnant with my first child. It was an outlet for me to share my journey to becoming a mom. After I had Jayden it slowly started to evolve into a lifestyle blog that it is today.

How would you decribe your personal style?

80% of the time I am a comfy jeans and a t-shirt kind of girl when I am running around with my kiddo. But most people would describe me as boho chic! I love fringe, sued, flowy feminine details.

What is your fall fashion staple you are most looking forward to?

I love over the knee boots. I am obsessed with them! They make you look taller and feel sexier!

Heels or sneakers?

Both, but I definitely wear sneakers more because I am a very active momma who loves to work out!

What is one item in your closet you can’t live without/throw away?

I can’t Iive without my favorite comfy jeans. I live in them!

Tell us something special about you!?!

My middle name is Princess, because I was actually born on a ship called the Princess! I actually came out three weeks earlier than my due date. Isn’t that crazy?
