It's been almost a full week since the newest Dallas sensation popped up, aka The Sweet Tooth Hotel, an experimental art and retail pop up. It is comparable to the Museum of Ice Cream in Miami if you are familiar with that. It is 5 beautifully created interactive rooms by local Dallas Artist with a candy theme provided by local candy shops in Dallas. How cool is that?! You can pretty much do anything you want EXCEPT eat the candy, haha.

High Fashion is definitely a luxury that I cannot afford in my regular budget so I had no choice but to master the art of mixing high and low fashion!

Guess Who's Coming to Brunch?!

So I attended my very first blogger meet up this past Saturday, and I think I'm in love! With everything! The people, the location, the conversation, the networking/collaboration opportunity, and more!

I had the honor to attend the Dallas Blogger Brunch at the cutest coffee bar called Halcyon and the opportunity to meet some very fun fellow bloggers! I think I found me a new workspace.

HOW TO: SHOP ONLINE LIKE A BOSS

Often times my friends say "I can't shop online, I never know what size to get."  I always say YES YOU CAN! I mean just pay attention to how you shop and what you buy. It will definitely save you so much time and money. You may even find yourself liking it TOO MUCH.

I am an advocate online shopper, and I have YEARS of experience in successful online shopping.
