A COUPLE OF WEEKS BACK TODD AND I WERE DYING TO GET OUT OF DALLAS. WE LOVE TO TRAVEL AND EXPERIENCE NEW PLACES AND UNFORTUNATELY, IT HAD BEEN A WHILE SINCE WE LAST HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO. SO WHEN SOUTH CONGRESS HOTEL IN AUSTIN INVITED US TO JOIN THEM FOR A STAY WE JUMPED AT THE OPPORTUNITY. WE HAVE BOTH BEEN TO AUSTIN A HANDFUL OF TIMES BEFORE, BUT JUST LIKE ANY GREAT CITY, EXPLORING POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS- ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING IN THE NATION.

I’M A MILLENNIAL.

IF YOU ARE ONE TOO, YOU KNOW THAT THE GENERATIONS BEFORE US VIEW US AS ENTITLED, LAZY, LOST, IMPATIENT AND SPOILED.

COOL.

I MUST ADMIT, THEY DO HAVE ONE THING RIGHT- WE ARE DEFINITELY IMPATIENT. WE LOVE INSTANT GRATIFICATION. BUT, CAN YOU BLAME US? WE’VE BEEN SPOILED BY GROWING UP IN A WORLD OF TECHNOLOGY. INFORMATION, ENTERTAINMENT, AND BEING “CONNECTED” IS ONLY ONE CLICK AWAY ALL DAY, EVERY DAY. IT IS OUR NORM. AND BECAUSE WE’VE GROWN ACCUSTOM TO SUCH, WHEN WE WANT SOMETHING WE WANT IT NOW. I LIKE TO THINK OF US AS THE VERUCA SALT GENERATION.

AS SOMEONE WHO HOLDS A 9-5 AND MOONLIGHTS AS A BLOGGER AND PHOTOGRAPHER IN MY SPARE TIME, I AM CONSTANTLY ON THE GO (I KNOW, I KNOW. I SOUND LIKE A BROKEN RECORD). BUT, PERFECT EXAMPLE OF MY CHAOTIC LIFE: LAST MONDAY-FRIDAY I WAS OUT OF TOWN FOR A BUSINESS TRIP, YESTERDAY SHOT LOADS OF PHOTOS, ATTENDED A BABY SHOWER AND THEN HIT THE ROAD FOR A MINI GETAWAY WITH THE BOY. WITH A SCHEDULE THAT NEVER SEEMS SLOW AND A BAG THAT NEVER GETS UNPACKED, I HAVE GRADUALLY DEVELOPED A FLAWLESS, QUICK AND RELIABLE BEAUTY ROUTINE. ALL THAT’S NEEDED? FIVE FLAWLESS PRODUCTS.

ACES.

BUG PRINT SLIP DRESS | BOW BACK T-SHIRT | HEELS, SIMILAR | BAG, SIMILAR | SUNGLASSES C/O

QUICK POST TODAY!

I FOUND INSPIRATION FOR THIS LOOK WHILE PERUSING PINTEREST (IMAGE FOUND HERE).

*SHAMLESS PLUG* DONT FORGET TO FOLLOW ALONG IF YOU AREN’T ALREADY! MY SHIT IS GOOD!

I’M A BIG FAN OF LAYERING AND IT DEFINITELY COMES ACROSS ON MY ‘STREET STYLE‘ PIN BOARD. LAYERING ADDS A GREAT DEAL OF CHARACTER TO ANY OUTFIT WITH IT’S ADDED DETAILS, TEXTURES, AND PRINTS. THE LOOK I’M WEARING HERE IS THE PERFECT WAY TO TRANSITION INTO YOUR SPRING/SUMMER SLIP DRESSES. A FEMININE DRESS WITH A T-SHIRT LAYERED UNDERNEATH IS NOT ONLY COMFORTABLE BUT LOOKS V COOL AND EFFORTLESS. LOCATED ABOVE THE MASON-DIXON? A LEATHER MOTO JACKET WOULD BE THE PERFECT TOP-OFF.

HAVE YOU TAKEN THE LOVE LANGUAGE QUIZ YET? IF NOT, YOU SHOULD. ALTHOUGH CHEESY, IT CAN BE FUN AND EVEN EYE-OPENING. IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD ABOUT THE TEST, IT IS AN ASSESSMENT WHICH UNCOVERS YOUR PERSONAL LOVE LANGUAGE. THIS PROFILE EXPLAINS YOUR PRIMARY LANGUAGE OF LOVE. THERE ARE FIVE IN TOTAL: ACTS OF SERVICE, GIFTS, WORDS OF AFFIRMATION, PHYSICAL TOUCH AND QUALITY TIME.

ONE FRIDAY EVENING AFTER SOME DRINKS, TODD AND I DECIDED TO TAKE THE QUIZ FOR SHITS AND GIGS. WE BOTH ENDED UP WITH THE SAME RESULT. OUR LOVE LANGUAGE IS QUALITY TIME. IT WAS NO SURPRISE TO US AS WE REALLY VALUE OUR ALONE TIME TOGETHER. OUR US TIME USUALLY INVOLVES A QUIET DINNER, EXPLORING THE CITY, GRABBING A CUP OF COFFEE OR DOING SOMETHING OUTSIDE- ALWAYS CHOCK-FULL OF CHATTING, GOOFING OFF AND LAUGHING AT EACH OTHER. IT’S THE BEST.
