Two of my Fall favorites. // Dos de mis cosas favoritas del otoño.




1. The weather // La temperatura

We do not get much of a temperature drop here in Houston but these last few days we have had some pleasant evenings. As the wind hits us I believe it smacks us a little with happiness. I say that, because we all seem to walk around with a smile due to the not so sticky nasty weather or because in the back of our minds we pray and hope the next day it gets a little cooler. Who else wants to start walking out in the morning without having to break a sweat?

Aquí en Houston no tenemos una temporada de otoño con temperaturas muy bajas, pero en los días anteriores hemos tenido unas mañanas y tardes diferentes a las que estamos acostumbrados. Casi que siento que el poco viento que nos ha llegado nos ha traído un poco de alegría. Quien no se pondría contento al no tener que sudar por estar afuera dies segundos como casi todos los días aquí en houston.

2. The fall fashion trends and makeup // La moda de otoño y los maquillajes adecuados para la temporada

I can't name a girl who doesn't become obsessed with either burgundys, army greens, burnt oranges, or mustard yellows this time of year. This time around I am obsessed with all! I purchased the mustard yellow sweater I have on in the pictures above, a burgundy skirt, a burnt orange dress, and an army green vest and many other clothing items, shoes, and accessories. I will be showing you all of them throughout the next few weeks. Along with fashion items, I also purchased a few makeup items. One, being my favorite, is a liquid lipstick by Kylie cosmetics in the shade "Leo". It is the perfect shade of burgundy and looks great paired with a copper eyeshadow! I also purchased a mauvy grey lipstick from Maybelline in the shade Gone Griege 760. As I have mentioned before, Maybelline has some of my favorite drugstore lipsticks. What I love about fall is that you can play with dark colored lipsticks and no one will look at you funny. So do not be afraid to step out of that comfort zone and do so!

Yo no he conocido a ninguna muchacha que no se obsesione con usar los colores de otoño como el verde militar, el mostaza, anaranjado quemado oh el gindo. Éste año como en todos, estoy obsesionada con todos esos colores así que me he comprado ropa en esos tonos. Para el maquillaje, estoy obsesionada con un labial en color gindo de la marca Kylie Cosmetics llamado "Leo", que se ve espectacular con sombra color cobre. También compre un labial como color gris de la marca Maybelline, llamado "Gone Griege" #760. Como les he mencionado anteriormente, Maybelline es una de mis marcas favoritas para labiales. Y hablando de labiales,  no tengan miedo de jugar con colores oscuros. En la temporada de otoño se ven espectaculares!

Labor Day dreaming


It is Labor Day and all I can think about is a day full of relaxation and online shopping. A few weeks ago I had the privilege of shooting with the great Jake Fabricius at the Granduca Hotel here in Houston, and I cannot wait to go back and spend a weekend here. Everyone is so friendly and it is perfect for a staycation! 

In this shoot we were able to wear Kingdom State swimwear, which is EXTREMELY comfortable and cute! They are currently having a 30% off with the code "LABORDAY30" valid for today, so run and get your swimsuit fix! I will add the link to the polka dot swimsuit I wore.

We also wore white dresses and rompers from Delacy and they are also having a sale with the code "SUMMER30". Gotta love all of these sales!

A few fun spots in Houston

So this past week I took the time to visit a few places here in Houston that I had been wanting to check out this summer. It was definitely an adventure and a great feeling to find so many fun places so close to home. So I have made a list of the places that I went to along with my thoughts and a few pictures I took with my phone at the end. Hope you all enjoy! 

Axelrad Beer Garden


How I ended up at this place is actually kind of silly. I kept seeing pictures of people in hammocks and I had been dying to buy a hammock. Well still am.  So I figured that since I wasn't going to be buying a hammock soon then this place would be perfect to go visit! So I asked a friend to come along and the first thing I realized was how sweet people were. It started from the people who guided me to parking, to those working inside, and even the people who were out there with friends, family, and their children. They had crepes, pizza, fries, and other snacking food. Although the place is also called "beer garden" I can truly say that it is very calm, almost as if you were sitting at Starbucks but with the benefit of having a cold Mexican Coke, a hammock to lay on, and a live band. I have never felt more relaxed and worry free in my life! I would definitely recommend this place for an evening after work. 

Westheimer thrift shopping & the Biscuit Paint Wall 


If you know me you know that I love clothes and shoes but if I find a good addition to my wardrobe for less than 50% off of retail then I'm even happier. So I went to Westheimer street where you can find many thrift stores and great bargains! Not only can you find good deals but you can also take some time to take pictures on all of the great artwork that can be found on the sides of these buildings. One of the most popular here in Houston is the Biscuit Paint Wall. It is so pretty and great for a birthday shoot!

Class 502


So am I the only one who did not know about Houston having a Chinatown? If you're a fan of Asian snacks and food I would definitely recommend checking it out! We only visited Class 502 where they serve ice cream in little rolls. It is definitely an experience to see how they make it! Especially if you're a fan of the videos that are all over Facebook! The ice cream was so tasty! I would recommend a water bottle or a drink that isn't too sweet to have with you because it can get a bit sweet. Other than that, very sweet people and great for adults and children.

Discovery Green Park


If you are from Houston you have probably been here about a million times as I have. This time around I decided to rent out a kayak since it was something my cousins wanted to do but the unexpected happened. I have never been on a kayak in my life and this was the first time. Let's just say that I was NOT expecting for water to get inside. So I walked out of there with a bug wet area on my behind. If you ever go make sure to keep that in mind or else you'll get all the looks. Ha ha!

Tout Suite


This is definitely one of my favorite places to go. I have been there a few times and every time I go it is so quiet and calm that it makes me enjoy every part of my dessert. If you are looking for a place to study, have a cup of coffee with a friend, or a short meeting, then this is the place to be. Plus, macaroons!

Doughnut fun // Donas deliciosas






I'm sure you all have seen the famous doughnuts that everyone has been raving about. They cost between $2-$5 and reality is that they are attracting people due to their random toppings. I went to Wal-Mart a few days ago and bought a pack of doughnuts, some icing, and my favorite General Mills cereal all for less than $10. It took me about 5 minutes to finish putting the icing and the cereal on top. It was definitely a twist to the regular icing doughnut and I sure had a great time making them. I realized that doing something like this would be great for everyone, especially for those with kids. They will appreciate the time & the yummy doughnuts! For more yummy, fun, and easy recipes please go to quericavida.com

Estoy segura de que todos han visto las famosas donas que todos suben en Instagram. Las donas son muy famosas por sus coberturas tan diferentes y aprovechan eso para venderlas más caras ($2-$5). Hace unos días fui a la tienda Wal-Mart y compre unas donas, un glaseado, y mis cereales favoritos de la marca General Mills. Me tomo como unos 5 minutos en hacer las famosas donas y gaste menos de lo que se gasta en esas donas. Lo que me gusto más es de que se pueden hacer en familia. Para los niños sería genial especialmente porque hacer cosas en familia crea memorias inolvidables. Para mad receipts delicious very a la pagina quericavida.com
