HOUSTON ARTOPIA 2015

Houston Artopia came and went! This event kicked off on January 24th and it packed full of people ready  to eat, drink, listen to music, view fashion and art!
I'm standing and being body conscious next to my favorite art pieces this year.
The show felt a little smaller than years past but it was still very inspiring. Mysterious by NPN was showing when I arrived and the line was awesome. I am sad that I was standing near the back of the room, the details were very picture worthy. I'm 5'2'' so photos at that back of the room floor level doesn't work!
My annual round of food sampling was completed by BB's Cafe, Cumbia Coffe, Fadi's Mediterranean, Healthy Cow Pizza, Los Cucos, Pollo Tropical and Texas de Brazil.... Not to mention Topo Chico was handing out free bottles OR the Stella Artois flowing.
Take a look at some of the cool things we saw! And congrats again to the winner of my giveaway, I recently gave away 2 tickets to this event.

SPRING ON MY MIND | KENDRA SCOTT Spring 2015

I've been style stalking Kendra Scott's pinterest board to see what will be in the new Spring 2015 collection. It is full of pastel hues and Opal! The fire opal is actually one of my favorite stones just because it so colorful and versatile. Opal is an amorphous form of Silica and water, hence all the colors. It is very soft, placing one near a flame will cause it to tarnish and crack. Coming most commonly in a rainbow of hues the black and red opal is the most rare. I love this collection by Kendra Scott, time to add a piece to the collection...

Textured Lifestyle | Marbled Rebecca Minkoff


The first time I saw this bag was on Instagram when Rebecca Minkoff posted it on her page. Besides DYING when seeing her in person at FH5, I am sooo obsessed with her style. I think the marbled pattern might be on trend. I have seen HM use it as as shower curtain (which I am planning on getting).
I think it is cool to see marble translated outside of homegoods and as a print in textiles. It just looks so clean, its the perfect palate to layer with pinks and pastels.
If you couldn't tell I am thinking so much about spring, I just am ready for it to not be cold.

SPRING, WHERE ARE YOU?
