Firmoo Readers |

The beginning of spring is usually also the beginning of me revamping my wardrobe. Time to find new jewelry, brighter nail polish! One fun accessory I love to add is readers. I have perfect vision but every now and then I think glasses add an extra geeky edge to my look. These readers are from Firmoo.com and yes, this is like my 4th pair of lenses from them! 
Ordering from Firmoo is fast and easy. They have tons of lenses and yes, prescription ones for people who need them! Since this glasses shop is online, there is an image upload for you to upload your face so you can virtually try lenses on!
Also, new customers get 50% off lenses http://www.firmoo.com/z/new-50-off.html !!!
More fun ways to update your look soon, how do you like my new lenses?

Home Decor Inspiration | Malachite

Currently searching the internet for malachite posters that I can just frame for a quick and easy wall art. Our living room is currently very bare and I love how this brings some color and texture into a space. The green also adds an interesting pop and is great when you have a living room with live elements such as succulents or bamboo. 
Its officially spring so time to get  planting. Spring cleaning and decorating is in order! You have no clue how happy I am for it to almost be summer. 
Forget spring, where is summer?!

ATX | Spring Vibes Photolog


Day trips out of Houston are always a good idea. ATX was hosting a little thing called SXSW (just kidding its not little). On top of an Austin photo walk we went to a 3 on 3 basketball open gym to support our friends from the Kiel Colon Cancer foundation. In and out burger and cherry blossoms made the day complete. After days of cold and rain, I forgot what the sun looked like!

BOYERT SHOOTING CENTER | Houston


As a female it is very important to be able to protect yourself. I have put off getting a concealed hand gun licence for a while but I think its about time to make the jump. I was recently invited to the Boyert Shooting Center and I must say the atmosphere is perfect for anyone wanting to shoot. Complete with rooms that have simulated shooting modules and calibrated guns, to actual range rooms to shoot, Boyert has a little something for everyone.
The Simulator has over 350 scenarios and is the same one used by Miltary and Special Ops. Actually, most of the people who work at Boyert have a background in military or law enforcement. I shot both the simulator and some real guns. I can't wait to go back, and finally get my CHL and a pretty gun!
The retail area at Boyert is pretty big! The space is great to walk through, all of the guns are on the wall so if you want to see how one feels in hand you can just pick it up yourself. There is a very knowledgeable staff on hand to answer any questions. 


I think I need one of these for my walks with my puppy.
I will have to come back soon! To learn more visit : http://www.boyert.com/

 9099 Westheimer Rd. 
Houston, TX 77063

They also have a FREE mindset awareness class. Whether you want to be a gun owner or not, it is important to know how to be aware of your surroundings and prevent attacks.

Now... Off to plan which gun I want to buy and schedule a CHL class!

HOUSTON RODEO | Fall Out Boy and Fried Oreos (MINI PHOTOLOG)

I can't believe that it rained basically 48 hours straight over the past weekend. The one time my bestie and I decide to go to the rodeo it just had to rain cats and dogs. My outfit was complete with a wide brim hat, and a trench coat. Since it was pouring I didn't enjoy any of the carnival fun, but the rain did not stop us from getting FRIED OREOS! Since they're served in a brown bag I couldn't snap a foodie picture in the rain. THE BAG MELTED! And I only ate 2, but they were the best decision made at the rodeo.
The fried booth even had fried red velvet, cookie dough, milky way, and pecan pie.
Inside the rodeo was a blast even though I had awful phone signal the whole time. Fall Out Boy put on quite a show. I felt like a high school kid all over again!
Of course you can't end this kind of night without some crawfish. With all the rain I hope my next batch of these are huge!

Side note, I think I'm finally settled! We're all moved in and ready to get back into the blogging groove! I'll be at the Boyert Gun Range tomorrow and in Austin this weekend! Hey SXSW and Kick Roll!

STAY TUNED :)
